Simon Chu has worked in the performing arts industry for twenty years and specialises in issues connected with the creative industries, helping people deal with the mental and emotional fallout of working in high pressure, competitive and creatively demanding industries like music, theatre, performance and media.
"My clinical experience includes working with people suffering from anxiety, depression, trauma, shame, low self-esteem, bereavement, identity issues, loneliness, anger management, OCD, addiction, family conflict, relationship issues, stage fright, self sabotage and career problems.
I am a registered member of BACP, The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by its ethical practices. My training includes EFT, Emotionally Focussed Therapy, Mindfulness, CBT and Gestalt, a holistic form of therapy with one simple aim. To raise your self awareness. Alongside talking therapy, I use a range of techniques to help you creatively explore the world as you experience it. These might include body process, role play, visualisation and internal dialogue.
My aim is to raise your awareness of what is happening for you at the present moment and also what processes from the past are holding you back from becoming the person you yearn to be. Once you are in touch with this hidden aspect of your potential, I will provide you with a safe space in which to challenge these unhelpful inclinations and experiment with new perspectives and behaviours to bring about a deep and lasting transformation."
