About me

Welcome to Natalia Hallam Counselling

Feeling anxious, depressed or stressed? Have you suffered a bereavement and are struggling to cope with the loss? Perhaps you need support in coping with trauma and PTSD, life transitions or relationship difficulties, or are you simply feeling lost, confused and unsure of what is wrong?

Whatever your difficulties and therapy goals are, I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to examine your life and identify opportunities for positive change. I am a fully qualified, registered and insured Humanistic Gestalt Counsellor and Psychotherapist and have successfully worked with many clients, just like you. I provide a quality of presence to facilitate your journey of self-discovery and support you in establishing lasting changes for leading a peaceful and fulfilled life, improvements include:

  • understanding your needs and how to get them met
  • developing confidence and building self-esteem
  • identifying your options and resolving your problems
  • improving your relationships
  • Managing stress and anxiety
  • healing from past trauma

As a Gestalt Therapist I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship and a here-and-now focus, together we will consider your whole self; environment, circumstances, thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations, and how past experiences are impacting you in the present. Through a warm professional relationship and creative strategies, meaningful and lasting change becomes possible.

I will also draw on a range of approaches to ensure your therapy meets your individual needs and progresses effectively. This may involve Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) or mindfulness to challenge recurring negative thoughts and reduce anxiety or to help you cope with symptoms of trauma and PTSD. On occasion I will encourage understanding of relevant theory to assist your process also.

I offer professional support for all types of emotional distress, including:

  • Addiction
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Bullying
  • Childhood Sexual Abuse
  • Depression
  • Disordered Eating
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Personality Disorder
  • PTSD
  • Physical Abuse
  • Rape
  • Relationship Issues
  • Self-Harm
  • Sexual Abuse/ Violation
  • Sexuality
  • Stress
  • Trauma
  • Work Issues

Starting Therapy 

I understand when feeling low or in distress it can be difficult to ask for help, you may find it daunting, worry what others think and feel anxious. This is very normal.

To make your first step as easy as possible and to put you at ease with the process, I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation. I will answer any questions you have and help you decide if counselling is the best approach for you. We will talk about what you hope to get out of your counselling process and if you are happy to go ahead we will book an initial assessment appointment at my private and comfortable practice in Fareham. The first step is to call me on 07783 058343 or email me. In the event I am unavailable at the time of your call, I will respond promptly to your enquiry.
