Neha Malik BA (Hons) Psych, MA Psych, Adv. Dip. Counselling, MBACP
Having worked as a counsellor / psychologist for over 10 yrs, I am experienced at treating emotional and psychological issues and with promoting inner growth and change. 'Change can only come about once we become who or what we truly are'. I aim to help you explore what feels real to yourself (your thoughts, feelings and attitudes) so that you can develop insight into who you are. In meeting yourself - with your raw emotions and vulnerabilities - you can gain the clarity, strength and courage to meet life (and others) with greater authenticity and well-being.
I offer evidence-based psychotherapy, which is personalised and tailored to meet your needs. I aim to help you attain the goals you are striving for, by providing you with a warm, accepting and supportive space, where together we can explore your issues in depth. I am committed to developing a therapeutic relationship with you that is non-judgemental, confidential and safe.
My approach is integrative-transpersonal, which means, I work by combining a whole range of therapeutic approaches and techniques, such as psychodynamic, gestalt, transactional analysis, cognitive-behavioural, client-centred, existential and also, transpersonal.
Psychotherapy can enable you to have a deepened awareness of yourself, your relationship patterns and the choices available to you in the present. Through a recreation of your past, it can help you to gain understanding and insight into the origins of your disturbing issues, be they emotional, psychological or relational. Increasing awareness along with a range of helpful strategies and techniques, in turn, can help you to work through your difficulties.
I am respectful of individual and cultural differences, whether of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or any other difference.
I offer weekly sessions of 50 mins duration to individuals, which can be either face-to-face or online (via Skype). These sessions may be short-term (time-limited) or longer term, depending upon your individual needs.
I also offer counselling sessions to couples, which are of 75 mins duration and can be weekly or every alternate week.
