About Me

Mark Hashimi - MSc MBACP CTA

Psychotherapist & Counsellor

I am an experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor and I provide both short and long term work for individuals and couples.


I am trained in Transactional Analysis and hold an MSc in psychotherapy. I adhere to the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) Code of Ethics and am a registered/accredited member of these organisations.


I provide a safe and confidential environment to help clients make meaning for themselves in order to progress and develop in life, exploring relationships, behaviours, thoughts and feelings that may be getting in the way of happiness. I work relationally, drawing on a wide range of approaches relevant to the clients I'm working with.


In addition to counselling and psychotherapy, I have worked in a number of senior management positions over the last ten years and currently work as Head of Workplace Wellbeing & Counselling for the mental health charity Mind. This has provided me with significant experience when dealing with work related issues. I also currently provide coaching and mentoring to organisations and individuals at all levels covering mental health awareness, ways to wellbeing, stress and resilience, change management, conflict management and confidence building. I have also studied with the institute of Leadership and Management.

I also have experience with techniques and methods that involve emotional recall and sense memory, including the Meisner Technique and work with actors who train in this area.

We shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring

Will be to arrive where we started

And know the place for the first time
