Alessia Vignali Integrative Counsellor and CoachAlessia Vignali

Integrative Counsellor & Coach (BACP)


My name is Alessia Vignali and I am an Integrative Counsellor & Coach practicing at HQ Therapy Rooms in Hackney, E8.

I draw on multiple approaches, tools and techniques in order to provide the best fit for each client’s needs, offering a confidential, non-judgemental space where to feel safe and contained whilst being listened to.

What I do:
I can offer Counselling or Personal Consultancy which is an integration of Counselling and coaching.

The perspective is that a person’s life cannot be divided into compartmentalised parts but rather needs to be addressed holistically in terms of thoughts, feelings and behaviours whilst at the same time considering goals, dreams and aspirations as in these lies the ultimate power to motivate and facilitate change.

Through our working collaboration, we will aim to increase self-awareness, facilitate exploration of surfacing themes and arrive at deeper reflections to assist you in reaching your own solutions or a more functional appraisal to any situation and a decrease in distress.

I believe in a sex-positive culture and have recently completed further training in Contemporary Intimate Partners Therapy and work with relationships issues such as marital difficulties, separation/divorce, infidelity/affairs, sexual/desire issues, Kink, Poly’s relationships. I currently offer couples therapy at a low price.

My background:
I have 15 years experience of working within the addiction field and employed by the NHS. I can work with any type of addiction.

I am also a qualified children’s counsellor and volunteered for Place2Be in schools using a combination of person-centered, psychodynamic and play-therapy approaches to enable children to express hidden feelings, have their voices heard, facilitate the many transitions a young person faces in their developmental stages.

Other areas I work with are:
Anxiety/health anxiety, panic attacks, depression, abuse, suicidal tendencies, rape, DV, trauma, gender dysmorphia, childhood trauma, loss, self-harming, disability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.

Can I Contact You For Advice About Getting Therapy?

Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive therapist can often make you feel better and help you face your problems. It feels good to be listened to and to know that someone cares about you and wants to help. It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting relationship to help you make positive changes in your life.

But how do you know what type of therapy is right for you? Taking the first steps in finding the right therapist can be the biggest hurdle for newcomers, so we have made it easy. Simply fill out the form below in confidence, and one of our fully qualified referral therapists can work with you to make sure you connect with the right practitioner and receive the correct therapy and counselling services you require.

Our practitioners deal with a wide range of therapy issues using different types of therapy modalities tailored for the types of clients we work with. We also cater for people who are beset with financial difficulties, offering them services ranging from low-cost therapy and reduced rate therapy, to working with seasoned, qualified and accredited talking therapists.
