  • Depression

    Posted by admin | Jun 29, 2017

    You’re in bed and the alarm clock goes off to wake you up for work. You switch it off but continue to lay in bed. Thoughts and feelings began to build up like cement, sinking feeling that just keeps you still laying in the same position wondering, thinking whether it’s actually worth getting up today. You decide to look through your phone on social media and images of friends looking happy and confident evoking deeper feelings of sadness and fatigue. You eventually decide to call in sick a...

  • Exam stress and anxiety

    Posted by admin | May 24, 2017

    For many children and young people, this time of year exams play integral part of their lives. However, in light of this, so does the stress of exams becomes increasingly heightened, amid young people’s fears of letting their parents and teachers down. This evokes stress and anxiety for which many young people conceal and find alternative ways of attempting to deal and cope with pressures of exams. There has been alarming rates reported of young people contacting helplines and having to deal w...

  • It’s great to see, and really encouraging, that so many campaigns and media coverage surrounding mental health is taking place. Last month I listed numerous mental health awareness days. I am aware that many young people find it difficult to not only find access and pathways to open up and talk about their difficulties, but also seek support and guidance to coping with a range of issues and difficulties. With this in mind, this month I have listed below a number of services and useful informa...

I work in private practice in Clapham Common and I am a registered member of the British Associa...

  • Making the steps forward

    Posted by admin | Jan 25, 2017

    Hugh Howe, MA MBACP Hello, My belief strongly underpins my person-centred non-directive approach but will use psychodynamic approach and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) if and when required. As a counsellor I am aware of the difficulties clients face and the stigma attached to seeing a counsellor, but I strongly feel that through these pathways and steps forward into counselling positive changes will occur in client’s lives. ...

Testimonials

All my gratitude

I came to Hugh having low expectations of what counselling do for me, but Hugh was welcoming and understanding from the first session. The sessions became the highlight of my week and I would emerge feeling like a huge weight had been lifted and feel positivity and hope. Hugh gave me the power to view things from a different perspective and has helped me enjoy the good things in life again. Even though this chapter has been resolved, I would not hesitate to reach out to Hugh again should anything change in the future. Thank you for all your help!

Thanks for all the time you gave me. I really appreciated it, and you helped me so much. Having a platform where I can speak and be myself was amazing and really helped me to cool off. Thank you for listening and never judging me. You accepted me for the real me. I feel honoured to have been able to talk to you every week, and I think its pretty obvious that I will miss our sessions. The sessions were the highlight of my week. You really took the weight off my shoulders, and I can never thank you enough.
