Natasha Suriya Hyland
My name is Natasha, I am a psychotherapist offering counselling in Croydon.
In these very difficult and frustrating times I am primarily offering skype or phone sessions at a reduced fee of £55-60.
Throughout life we can be faced with unexplained and unexpected difficulties, often becoming too difficult to encounter alone. I offer a place where we can explore together these difficulties, within a safe and supportive environment.
I believe we are all complex and multi-faceted beings with different needs and concerns at different points in life's journey. My job is to listen and create a safe environment in which you can explore your feelings and thoughts freely. Exploring your concerns in our work together can lead you to better understand yourself and how you relate to your environment and gain insight on how you can change and grow.
The aim is to explore what brings you to therapy and to work together in enabling you to have a better understanding of yourself and the relationships you have both personally and work related.
Counselling is not about giving advice. It is to enable you, the client to find your own path to address the cause of the difficulties and to identify possible reasons as to why you are facing your presenting difficulties.
I have worked with clients in a number of areas such as depression, anxiety, cultural issues, trauma, refugee-related work, anger management, relationships, self-development, loneliness, loss and bereavement.
I have experience working with multicultural backgrounds and different religious communities. Therefore, I work empathically and in consideration of the diversity of culture, spirituality and religion.
As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I am bound by their code of ethics. My practice draws on strengths specifically from psychodynamic practice and at times different schools of therapy including CBT and humanistic approach.
What I can provide:
I offer both time limited therapy, 6-24 sessions, and open-ended therapy.
My professional approach with clients is relaxed and down to earth. My aim is to create a non-judgmental, insightful and confidential therapeutic relationship whilst supporting and working according to my client’s individual needs.
I am mindful that the process of finding a counsellor may be difficult and therefore I offer an initial 50-minute consultation session. This will give us an opportunity to meet and explore your concerns and needs. It is important for both of us to feel comfortable and to decide whether you wish to take up subsequent sessions.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
