Welcome to Natalia Hallam Counselling


We are all unique, experiencing and understanding the world differently and at times we may feel overwhelmed, confused, isolated or stuck. As a Humanistic Gestalt Counsellor I offer a quality of presence, so you are able to develop awareness, resolve your problems and establish lasting changes for leading a peaceful and fulfilled life.

My approach will support you to:

  • understand your needs and how to get them met, resulting in feelings of empowerment
  • bring you improved resilience to manage life's challenges, by increasing your confidence and problem solving skills
  • challenge negative thinking and help you achieve emotional freedom from your self-critical and limiting internal voice



  • Humanistic Gestalt Therapy

    Gestalt is a relational therapy with a here-and-now focus, together we will consider your whole self; environment, circumstances, thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations, and how past experiences are impacting you in the present. Through a warm professional relationship and creative strategies, meaningful and lasting change becomes possible.

    "Our deepest, most profound stirrings of self-appreciation, self-love and self-knowledge surface in the presence of a person whom we experience as totally accepting" (Zinker, 1977)


    I am a fully qualified, registered and insured Counsellor and Psychotherapist and have successfully worked with many clients, just like you.


    So if you...


  • feel like daily life is an uphill struggle
  • experience fear, panic and terror at thought of interacting with others
  • find saying no to others impossible and often feel frustrated
  • feel devalued and lack confidence


    ...and you would like to...


  • feel calmer and sleep better
  • develop confidence and speak to people without worrying what they are thinking
  • understand your needs and how to get them met
  • recover from past trauma


    ...Then you have come to the right place!



  • "In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety." Abraham Maslow
