Hello, and welcome to my site
My name is Timothy Hudd and I’m a native English speaking British national living in Helsinki, Finland since 2015. I’m a qualified BACP counsellor and psychotherapist and belong to the BACP accredited register in the UK, which commits me to working safely, ethically and confidentially to professional standards. I offer counselling and psychotherapy to adult individuals for 90 euros per 50 minute session. Currently I cannot offer Kela reimbursement.
What I offer
How I work
I specialize in face-to-face counselling and psychotherapy with individual adults using the person-centred approach. The usual way to proceed is that we arrange an appointment time for you to come in and to discuss the problems that you may be having, from there we can decide if I can be of help and if we want to work together.
Finding the right therapist for you is of great importance at this stage of counselling and psychotherapy, research shows that this working relationship is the second most predictive element of good therapeutic outcomes. So don’t be afraid to say that you do not want to work with me, but keep looking for the right therapist that suits you.
If we decide to work together, we can then arrange for further sessions to take place every week at the same time. My standard session rates are 90€ for a 50 minute session.
What I work with
Within the understanding of the medical diagnostic model of psychiatry, I work with depression, anxiety, social anxiety, relational problems, bereavement, abuse, PTSD, CPTSD, adoptions issues, stress, work related issues and anger management, self-esteem problems, intercultural and integration issues, identity, acquired brain injuries, BPD, BD, OCD, self-harm, social phobias, personal development and many others.
The Person-centred approach that I use for counselling and psychotherapy sees human suffering as universal, that the problems of living all have the same essential cause and therefore sees no need for individual diagnosis. Therefore, we use different terminology to describe mental health to that of the prevailing medical model of psychiatry. The person-centred approach rejects the arbitrary medical model of diagnosis as harmful to label and stigmatise people along with the many other issues that it causes, but understands the need to work within this dominant model.
