HELPING YOU FIND YOUR OWN WAYS TO ACHIEVE
What problems can I help you with?
are making you uneasy and troubled. You feel some of your emotions are irrational, getting out of hand, or just the opposite: having trouble expressing or even experiencing them.
and feeling like you’re not progressing or going anywhere, maybe a bit confused about where you’re headed and how you want your life to look like in a few years.
with yourself or with others that are important to you are not working out for you. You feel you are unworthy of love or you are unable to form lasting and satisfying relationships with others.
is something that you are struggling with during the COVID-19 quarantine. You feel like you’re ‘going mad’, miss seeing your friends and family, have a hard time working from home or can hardly cope with being locked inside.
are making you miserable and you have difficulties dealing with negative thoughts that you cannot seem to control. Saying goodbye to a previously comfortable and well-known life situation and dealing with new challenges can sometimes be overwhelming.
GRIEF AND LOSS
are making it difficult for you to distance yourself from the pain you have experienced and prevent you from having moments when you enjoy life without feeling guilty — and this might have been going on for an extended period of time.
ANXIETY, PANIC & PHOBIAS
prevent you from being able to enjoy and live life to the fullest. As your body enters into ‘emergency mode’, it is impossible to think straight even if you know it might be irrational.
are holding you captive, making you a mere passenger in your own life. You want to stop smoking, biting your nails, procrastinating, or binge drinking; yet, for some unknown reason, something is pulling you back and you are unable to do so.
seems particularly difficult and you don’t understand why. It might look like something is holding you back from making a certain decision, and you feel like you’ve lost your way.
My name is Marton Kara and I hold a master’s degree in psychology from Eotvos Lorand University of Sciences in Budapest, Hungary, and a hypnotherapist degree from the Hungarian Association of Hypnosis. I work as a HCPC-registered Counselling Psychologist and a Hypnotherapist.
I offer HYPNOTHERAPY, TALK THERAPY and COUNSELLING in English and in Hungarian in London or online via Skype.
My goal as a therapist is to work together with you in your own pace to discover your own internal resources for personal growth to help you understand yourself better and lead a more fulfilling, emotionally balanced life. I consider my therapeutic approach eclectic, based on humanistic principles with a strong emphasis on the importance of the therapeutic relationship. I tend to think of each person I work with as a unique and irreplaceable mosaic-pattern puzzle; thus I treat them with great care and respect. My main area of expertise is hypnotherapy, but I also use elements of cognitive-behavioural therapy and psychodrama. I feel most comfortable incorporating dreams, imagery, symbols, and other unconscious material in my therapeutic work, but can be rather rational and goal-oriented depending on what I feel would help you the most.
I have been an active psychologist since 2016, having worked for the Hungarian National Institute of Oncology for four years providing supportive therapy in a team of professionals. In the United Kingdom, I have been working with patients with a diagnosis of personality disorder, schizophrenia, learning disability, Asperger's syndrome, anxiety or depression on an adult psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) and in acute inpatient care services, as well as with refugees in the field of mental health. I have been providing outreach support for families with young children with special education and developmental disorders (autism spectrum disorder). I have extensive experience in the management of common mental health problems such as chronic stress, bereavement, emotional difficulties, trauma, impulsivity control, anxiety, adjustment disorder, sleep disorder, pain management, and recovering from serious illnesses. I spent my internship programme in a psychiatric hospital and outpatient clinic in Hungary working in treatment supervision for the patients of the hospital under clinical supervision I am also interested in spirituality and have had training in shamanic practices at The Foundation for Shamanic Studies Europe.
My continuous professional development has included 280 hours of Hypnotherapy Training, 270 hours of Psychodrama Training, 200+ hours of Hypnotherapy, 100+ hours of Hellinger Family Constellation Therapy, and training in Basic Shamanism.
’I started to work with Márton after a very difficult period of my life: I needed to focus on taking care of my mental health following a serious illness and learn how to manage stress effectively. At this point I gave hypnotherapy a try, which, at first, seemed quite scary; however, thanks to Márton’s professionalism I learnt a lot about myself and the real cause of my problems. Eventually, I managed to move towards a healthy solution to my problems. I highly recommend Márton and hypnotherapy!’
After my first session with Márton, it immediately became clear that my thoughts were valid and suddenly it all clicked into place.The first time I walked into his office, I was quite lost — but by the time we got to our last session, I was more independent, assertive and self-confident. I had learnt how to be more respectful towards others’ and my own opinions as well. I especially liked how Márton guided me towards possible solutions in an objective way.
'It was a very good experience to work together with Márton and I felt very safe. His warm personality and the firm but not overly rigid therapeutic boundaries helped me a lot in my healing process. I have kept some of the drawings I made during the therapy and it feels so good to look at them! I can only recommend him to others looking for a therapist. Thank you so much for your help!'
