Nicholas Malik (M.SOPH, BACP) - The Hampstead Therapy Practice
At The Hampstead Therapy Practice I offer individual and group psychotherapy working holistically with both individuals and groups to support them toward recovery and health.
These are some of the common issues that are dealt with through psychotherapy:
- Relationship problems
- Bereavement and loss
- Low esteem
- Work-related issues
- Anger Management
- Personal development
Psychotherapy is commonly used for problems that have built up over a number of years. Some people refer to psychotherapy as a talking treatment because the journey is one made in dialogue with a therapist rather than through the use of drugs. It clarifies positive or anxious feelings, as well as helping people accept their strong or weak points. If people can identify their feelings and ways of thinking they become better at coping with difficult situations.
Together we seek an understanding of the current difficulties.The understanding that past events can impact upon current ones necessitates that we think about childhood experiences. This collaborative exploration between us both gives an opportunity for understanding and insight that can lead to the resolution of the problem. One-to-one psychotherapy can be short-term, continue for several months, or may sometimes be open-ended
Your initial Session
Building a relationship with your therapist can take time. Initial feelings of anxiety about this can be aired in the session bringing relief. This in turn can open up much needed dialogue and shed light on previously hidden problems bringing a new clarity to them. This brings both relief and hope as a feeling of being heard and understood deepens.
Sessions generally occur once a week and they last for fifty minutes.
