Cynthia Kelchure-Cole Integrative Counsellor Coach Therapeutic Social Worker Clinical SupervisorCynthia Kelchure-Cole:

Integrative Counsellor, Coach, Therapeutic Social Worker & Clinical Supervisor (BACP, BPS, SWE)

Hi, my name is Cynthia Kelchure-Cole, and I am an integrative counsellor, coach, therapeutic social worker, and clinical supervisor practising from HQ Therapy Rooms in Dalston, Hackney, E8.

I believe in K-I-R (keeping it real), life can seem like an obstacle course, at times we are able to navigate the course, by finding ways to get over, through or around the obstacles this supports us to keep moving!

Sometimes we stumble and cannot find the way through, or around the obstacles not even with support from friends and family.  It is at these times that life can seem overwhelming and unmanageable, and we can make life-changing decisions.

By allowing me to walk alongside you and support you using counselling and maybe coaching techniques, we can together find new pathways that support you to go around, through or over these obstacles, so that you do not make a life-changing decision based on a resolvable situation.

I have worked within the NHS, and in the statutory and volunteer sectors providing social, emotional and well-being support for individuals for over thirty years.

I have experience of working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and imposter syndrome linked to domestic violence, sexual abuse, and cultural and race-based traumatic experiences.  I continue to work with sexual-based trauma within a national charity.

I provide support, training, and supervision for professionals within the health and social care sector in support of individuals and services becoming trauma-informed.  I have lived and worked in London, Jamaica, and other parts of the Caribbean.  I am aware of interlinked cultural perspectives that may be challenging for you, I am therefore mindful and respectful of cultural norms.


How we can work together
I work from the perspective that you are unique, therefore one size cannot fit all.  I support you to explore your strengths, we do this by sometimes going back to the past and bringing forward ideas that can be useful to you now, as we look to the future and move forward, by creating “bespoke-solutions”

As an integrative practitioner, we explore different ways and therapy techniques that support in communicating in the way that suits you best.  I can offer more than talking therapy, I encourage the use of creative activities that assist you to be able to share thoughts and emotions when you may not be able to find the words.

Alongside working in private practice at HQ Therapy, I also have a practice in Docklands, East London.


Sessions are 50 minutes and can be face to face or online.  You can book a weekly slot, or we can have some flexibility, however, therapy is not a ‘quick fix’.  I would suggest a minimum of six sessions; however, the choice is always yours it can be as long or as short as you want.

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.
