Psychodynamic & CBT Psychotherapist
My name is Saeed Khalilirad and I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor based at HQ Therapy Rooms in Hackney, London E8.
There are many reasons why people make contact with me. It may be depression or anxiety, relationship difficulties or break-up, sexual abuse, emotional distress or bereavement. You may be experiencing work-related stress, panic, low self-esteem, social anxiety, health anxiety, obsessive thoughts and feelings, difficulties following a trauma, phobias and other feelings that are hard to live with. All those who contact me wish to talk about what concerns them and find a way to manage and overcome thoughts and feelings that are preventing them from leading enjoyable and fulfilling lives.
In our work together we could focus on relationship difficulties or past issues that have triggered your current problems. Additionally, we could work on unhelpful thoughts and behaviour that have triggered your current concerns.
I am aware that seeking help might not be easy. We all experience challenges and difficulties and wish to be able to work through them and move forward. To achieve this, we will work together in an empathic, safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment to make sense of, and work through, the issues that brought you to therapy.
Having lived and worked for many years in different countries such as Canada, Iran, India, and now in the UK, I am aware of the differences in the wider society. Using my experience of being exposed to different cultures, I embrace working with clients representing all kinds of differences. I offer psychotherapy both in English and Farsi (Persian).
I have years of experience working with adults of all ages in a wide range of short and long-term NHS mental health services. I have also worked in educational psychotherapy services offering psychotherapy to university students and staff. I am currently working in an NHS mental health service and also in private practice in Central and West London.
My Training and Approach:
I have a Masters degree in brief and long-term psychodynamic and CBT psychotherapy. I am a UKCP registered/accredited Psychodynamic psychotherapist, BABCP accredited/registered CBT therapist, & BPC registered/accredited Dynamic Interpersonal Psychotherapist.
Prior to my training as a psychotherapist, I spent several years in creative industries working in different fine-arts, graphic-design and advertisement agencies in Canada. I also have many years of experience in management working in different industries in Canada and the UK. These experiences help me to relate to, and work through, conflict management, performance anxiety, workplace stress, loss of a healthy work-life balance and other work-related concerns, and how these difficulties could interfere with the personal life of an individual.
Please call or email me (below) to arrange an initial brief telephone conversation. We will then meet for an initial consultation during which we will explore how we may work together.
I charge £80.00 for a 50-minute session.
