Zoe Hassid Integrative psychotherapist , WC1X
Hello. You may find yourself here looking for some support in your life and wondering if therapy can help you. Counselling and psychotherapy offer a safe, confidential environment where you can discuss problems, explore difficult thoughts and feelings, and talk and be heard in a way that can facilitate change. I can support you to come to terms with who you are and what's happened in your life, so you can become who you want to be.
I offer a warm, confidential and collaborative space where you can bring whatever is troubling you. Together we can explore what's going on, at a pace that's right for you. I hope you'll feel able to be yourself with me, whoever you are and whatever has happened in your life. I offer both support and challenge, without judgment. I don't offer advice but I will champion your autonomy and your capacity to make choices.
People come to counselling and psychotherapy for many different reasons. You may be feeling overwhelmed by a current situation at work or in a relationship. You may be dealing with loss, grief, depression, anxiety, loneliness, fear, anger or addiction. You may be struggling with persistent and unwanted thoughts, feelings or behaviours. You may be haunted by past experiences that overshadow your present and future. Or you may simply want more joy and fulfilment out of life and wonder what gets in the way.
I am curious about what gets in the way of living life fully, particularly in how we connect with others. I aim to support clients in exploring what limits them and in developing the freedom to make meaningful choices for themselves.
I'm an Integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, which means I'm trained in a number of therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic, humanistic, body and contemporary relational psychotherapy, and I integrate a combination of these different approaches to best work in relationship with you as a unique individual. Integrative counselling is also about personal integration - that is, becoming aware of, coming to terms with and integrating different parts of ourselves and our experiences so we can feel more whole both in mind and body. This can be an empowering process (and at times an uncomfortable one) that liberates us from limiting thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and frees us to make choices.
I work relationally, which means we can explore whats happening between us in the here and now to bring awareness to patterns of relating that may come from the past and be getting in the way in the present, and to co-create new patterns that may serve you better.
I have experience of working with clients on issues including: abuse, addiction, alcohol, anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, dissociation, disordered eating, gender identity, loss, parenting, relationship issues, self-harm, separation, sexuality, stress, trauma.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked with adults at a drug and alcohol recovery service, a clinic specializing in disordered eating, and a low cost psychotherapy service.

Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like to find out more or if you'd like to book an initial session with me. I won't charge for this if we decide not to work together.
