Charlotte Garratt Integrative Therapist and Coach London E8Charlotte Garratt:

Advanced Trainee Integrative Therapist & Coach (BACP student member)


My name is Charlotte Garratt and I am an advanced trainee integrative therapist and coach working with adults and young people at  HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, E8.

I will work collaboratively and compassionately with you to explore whatever difficulties have brought you to counselling or whatever goals you want to achieve through coaching.

Many people find themselves stuck in patterns they can’t quite manage to change, whether that’s in relationships, with addictions to substances or with unhelpful behaviours.

Counselling can help you to find the roots of your issues and work to create new ways of being and doing that allow you to fulfil your potential.

You may want to feel more confident, calmer, and more satisfied with your life or you may want support to make changes you know will enhance your wellbeing.

You may be in pain, having relationship issues, be struggling with your identity, finding life overwhelming or need space to evaluate your life so far and discuss meaning.

I believe that everyone has the capacity to look inside with non-judgemental support, to change where they want to and that the counselling space facilitates that through exploration, intervention and compassionate challenge in a warm and life-enhancing experience.

I have worked with adults in NHS mental health settings, with Mind, in schools, in the City, private sector and in international development globally. I have lived in London, California and the rainforests of Peru and I take a cross-cultural perspective on mental health and happiness which I believe enhances my practice.

How we can work together:
Every person is unique and as an integrative practitioner I draw on the modalities I think will work for you in our sessions.

No two people are ever the same and I reflect this in how I combine and work from different types of therapy modalities including Existential, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt, Psychodynamic theory, Transpersonal and Solution Focused Therapy and others.

I can draw on my Coaching training and experience when you are ready to look forward to your goals.

Sometimes you may want to focus on the past, other times you may be ready to build towards the future and so I work collaboratively with you in our safe space to enable you to use it effectively.

My Sessions and Fees:
Our sessions will be 50 minutes long and can be face to face, online or on the telephone. You can select a regular weekly slot or we can keep a degree of flexibility.

I encourage you to contact me for an initial free 20-minute discussion to see how we can work together.

Our sessions after this are £65 with a reduced rate of £40 for those eligible. I can offer open-ended as well as short-term sessions depending on your needs and circumstances.

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.
