About Hagar Lee
I am a qualified Psychosynthesis counsellor, working in Dalston with individuals from all walks of life, facilitating in-depth therapeutic work. I create a safe environment where self-exploration and healing is nurtured.
Qualifications and professional registration
I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from the Psychosynthesis Trust. The course is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and awarded by Middlesex University.
I am Registered Member MBACP and abide by BACP ethical framework.
I attend regular clinical supervision to support my work, and invest in my continued professional and personal development as a counsellor.
I grew up in Israel and moved to the UK as a young woman, pursuing a career in design and running my own business for many years. I later trained as a counsellor, in search of meaningful work and a desire to deepen my understanding of the human condition.
From my own experience of the therapeutic process, I understand and greatly value the growth and healing that is provided by counselling and the therapeutic relationship. Together with my life experience, background and professional training – I bring acceptance, compassion and patience to my therapeutic practice, whilst also challenging long-standing attitudes.
I presently work in private practice.
It’s sometimes easy to forget none of us emerge out of a vacuum, but fit within a certain family, community, society and the world at large. We are continually being affected by collective and greater powers than us, not always acknowledging or conscious of them.
This can include our political landscape, socio-economic background, cultural pressures, and our connection/alienation from nature. It is also informed by our families and the way previous generations impacted us.
I am passionate about exploring the relationships, complex networks and influences that shaped us, adding a wider context to the therapeutic journey. We come from rich environments that feed into the identities we hold of ourselves, how we operate in the world and our sense of belonging. In my opinion, identifying and working with these issues can add precious insights and offer healing in our lives.
