Vedika Shewakramani Counsellor and Psychotherapist London E8Vedika Shewakramani:

Counsellor & Psychotherapist (MBACP)

I’m Vedika Shewakramani, a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist working with HQ Therapy at their rooms in Dalston and Haggerston, London E8.

Having had a strong inclination to connect with and help those around me since I was very young, I learned quite early that the field of mental health is where I belong.

My desire to understand people has translated into my approach as a Humanistic counsellor, wherein I hold the belief that each of my clients is unique and so my work with each of my clients is tailor-made to suit what they bring to our sessions.

I also draw from Positive Psychology and Mindfulness because I believe that the first (and sometimes also the only) step to finding answers is self-awareness, and building this will be an important part of our work together.

I aim to establish a solid therapeutic relationship with my clients, with a focus on trust and unconditional positive regard, which will be at the forefront of the therapeutic process.

Creating a safe space through this relationship, I invite my clients to explore anything they need support with and work collaboratively with me.

While my approach allows my clients to lead the pace and structure of our sessions, I actively participate in the process with you by helping you navigate via questions, reflections, observations, insight, challenges, and in some cases, creative and mindful exercises.

I understand that entering therapy can be quite intimidating and overwhelming.

However, as someone who has previously struggled with her own mental health, I believe that I can offer you the empathy required to support your therapeutic journey.

I’m experienced in working with presenting issues like anxiety, depression, addictions, relationships, low self-esteem, anger, loss and bereavement, burnout, abuse, life changes, trauma, and more.

I work with individual adults (18+) and offer therapy both, online and in person, and in short-term as well as long-term models.

Sessions last 50 minutes long, costing £60 online and £70 in person.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.

Can I Contact You For Advice About Getting Therapy?

Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive therapist can often make you feel better and help you face your problems. It feels good to be listened to and to know that someone cares about you and wants to help. It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting relationship to help you make positive changes in your life.

But how do you know what type of therapy is right for you? Taking the first steps in finding the right therapist can be the biggest hurdle for newcomers, so we have made it easy. Simply fill out the form below in confidence, and one of our fully qualified referral therapists can work with you to make sure you connect with the right practitioner and receive the correct therapy and counselling services you require.
