Alessia Vignali Integrative Counsellor and CoachAlessia Vignali

Integrative Counsellor & Coach (MBACP)

My name is Alessia Vignali and I am an Integrative Counsellor & Coach working from HQ Therapy Rooms Haggerston E8. I offer Integrative Counselling drawing on multiple approaches to provide the best fit for each client’s needs and issues in a confidential, non-judgemental space where to feel safe and contained whilst being listened to.

I work with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, and relationship difficulties, aiming through our working collaboration to increase your self-awareness, explore surfacing themes, arrive at deeper reflections, assist in reaching your own solutions or a more functional appraisal to any situation, resulting in a decrease in distress and anxiety, an increase in resilience and coping mechanisms ultimately conducive to improved relationships with oneself and others.

My perspective is that a person’s life cannot be compartmentalised but rather 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.

Therefore, I will address past issues or trauma that keep you stuck by working on acceptance and reframing, conducive to better functioning in the present but also explore hopes and future goals to assist you in working towards the life you aspire to live.

I believe in a sex-positive culture, un-shaming and empowering, and I have trained in Psychosexual Therapy with the Contemporary Institute of Clinical Sexology (CICS); I work with sexual issues such as low/high desire, compulsive behaviours, porn, trauma, kink, fetish, gender issues, coming out, dysphoria, transitioning, erections issues, menopause.

I also trained in Contemporary Intimate Partners Therapy at CICS, and offer Couples Therapy, a space for couples to work on relationships difficulties, aiming to lessen conflict, improve communication and find resolutions on issues such as infidelity, affairs, separation, divorce, desire discrepancy, Kink, Open Relationships, Poly’s, family issues.

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.
