Zoe Scholar (BACP):
My name is Zoe Scholar, I am a qualified Integrative Therapist, registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), working at HQ Therapy Rooms in Hackney, E8.
Counselling is a unique experience in which you are listened to in a non-judgemental and supportive way. A counselling conversation may feel very different from talking to friends or family. It may be the first time you have really felt heard or listened to. Being listened to and supported in this way will enable you to make your own decisions, to understand yourself better, to take control and facilitate change.
I am an integrative therapist which means I work in a variety of ways to help a client. With a foundation of empathy, genuineness and the creating of a trusting relationship, I believe that therapeutic change can occur.
In a typical counselling session, I will encourage and support you to reflect on your situation and to uncover what it is that you want. You will learn how to express yourself and to think about how to improve your situation in a practical way. By working together and voicing your thoughts and feelings you will gain a different perspective on your situation. This will help you to feel less stuck or less alone and more able to live a full life with a hopeful future.
I offer both short and longer-term counselling. Some clients benefit from short term counselling over 7 to 10 sessions and this can be very effective and beneficial. Others find that ongoing support over 6 months or more is helpful. We will review our progress regularly.
I have experience of working with clients who have work and relationship difficulties, imposter syndrome, stress, anxiety, bereavement, issues of self-esteem and lack of motivation. I also offer counselling for those affected by Dementia. I work in a mindful way both with the person living with Dementia and with the family carer or carers.
I have experience of working with a range of clients, diverse in age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and religion.
As a member of the BACP I am bound by the guidelines in the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Money spent on therapy is an investment in personal change and growth.
I charge between £65 and £80 per counselling session.
If you have any further questions or want to arrange your first counselling session contact me below. I aim to answer any enquiries within 48 hours.
