Dr Francesca Lassman Clinical Psychologist London E8Dr Francesca Lassman:

Clinical Psychologist (HCPC)


My name is Francesca Lassman, I am a Clinical Psychologist who welcomes people from all backgrounds in a safe, warm and non-judgemental space providing therapy sessions online, in-person and via phone from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, London E8.

I embrace diversity in ethnicity, race, religion, sexual identity, gender identity and physical ability.

In my work, I am dedicated to promoting emotional well-being and meaningful life changes. I support people in connecting with their values and helping them to achieve the life they want to lead.

I have eight years of experience working in NHS and private healthcare settings and currently work as a Senior Clinical Psychologist in the NHS.

I help support adults through a range of difficulties, including anxiety, low mood, trauma, loss, identity issues, fertility issues and the psychological impact of living with a health condition.

People sometimes just want a space to make sense of a particular part of their lives, a relational concern, or other challenges that need addressing.

As individuals, we are unique in our life experiences and cultural contexts, and these particular experiences shape our beliefs, values and ways of relating to the world.

I strongly believe people are experts in themselves, their own lives and stories; I draw on my expertise in different types of psychological models, research and evidence-based approaches in order to tailor therapy to your personal needs.

I am committed to working collaboratively and not prescriptively and will always uphold your personal experience and worldview at the centre of the work.

I am very happy to answer any questions you have before booking an initial consultation. If you decide to proceed, I offer an assessment session to get an initial overview of different areas of your life, your current concerns, and your hopes for therapy.

The aim of this session is to reach a mutual understanding of the difficulties you are facing, from which we would make a plan for ongoing work.

I sometimes see people for a few sessions and sometimes for longer-term work, or it might be you don’t need therapy, but a short-term space to think through a particular concern.

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.
