Why me? How am I different?

Hello, my name is Umaa and I am a qualified Gestalt Counsellor MBACP (regd) and I offer you a space to be curious and creative in Clapham - SW4 or Shoreditch - EC2A.  I  have over 10 years experience working in a diverse mix of professional settings such as social services, bereavement placements and corporate settings. 

Often counselling can be seen as a talking therapy and I use different techniques such as drawings, raising body awareness and movement. My role is to highlight how many options you have by offering a fresh perspective. I became a counsellor after being inspired by my own journey as a client and I studied at The Gestalt Centre in London. I am committed to continuing professional development and I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework.

What is Gestalt Therapy?

The value of this approach lies in its diversity as there is no fixed ​method or one size fits all solution. Gestalt therapy is about working in the present but does not exclude the past. It is noticing body sensations and tensions and by raising awareness of the body we can become better equipped to self care.
