Psychotherapist & Counsellor
My name is Anita Gaspar and I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor based at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, London E8 4DE.
I offer a respectful and confidential space in which to explore your life and talk about your current concerns. I will not give advice or judge you, but listen carefully and attempt, through my questions and reflections, to help you make sense of your situation and identify opportunities for change.
Qualifications & Experience
I obtained my Masters Degree and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling at The Minster Centre, one of the oldest and most respected centres of training in the UK. As an integrative counsellor, I have been trained in a range of theories and approaches which I incorporate into my work.
In practical terms, this means that I see every client as an individual and seek to find a way of working that feels right for each one. Some of the approaches that influence my work include psychodynamic, existential, relational, Jungian and humanistic.
I have worked with clients of different ages and backgrounds, including many whose first language is not English. These are some of the issues that I have had experience of dealing with: relationship problems, anxiety, life transitions, divorce, bereavement, depression, loneliness, identity issues, life crisis, desire to understand dreams.
I also have extensive experience of working as a university counsellor and am familiar with the issues that can arise when young people leave home, and how it affects them and their families.
I am a Registered Member of the BACP and UKCP, and abide by their guidelines with regard to ethics and confidentiality. In accordance with these guidelines, my work is regularly supervised by another exerienced practitioner, I am fully insured and I am committed to ongoing professional development.
My Consulting Fees
I charge £50 for the initial session of 50 minutes; thereafter my fee is £60-70 per 50-minute session, depending upon time of day and location.
