Integrative Therapist & Coach (MBACP)
Hello, my name is Ellie Harvey and I am an Integrative Therapist and Coach, offering Psychotherapy and Coaching at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston and Dalston, Hackney, London E8.
People come to therapy for many different reasons and at different points in their lives.
You may be feeling stuck in unhelpful thought patterns or behaviours, you may be looking for a safe space to talk about and process difficult emotions and experiences or you may be feeling held back by low self-esteem, a lack of purpose or drive.
Therapy can be a powerful tool for dealing with life’s challenges, working through internal conflicts and exploring what matters most to you in life.
How I work Psychotherapy:
I know that coming to therapy can feel daunting and vulnerable at first. I aim to put you at ease with a genuine, friendly and judgement-free space where you can confidentially explore your challenges and feel comfortable bringing your whole self.
As an integrative practitioner, I am trained in a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches. This means that I am not tied to one theoretical model and can instead respond to what is working for you, drawing on different tools to support your therapeutic process.
Some of the schools of thought integrated into my practice are; Person-centered, Existential, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt and Solution-focused therapy.
How I work Coaching:
Coaching is a supportive process for discovering goals and actions that build towards the future you want. Many of us don’t take the time to think about what direction we are headed in and whether it is in line with what we truly want for ourselves and our lives.
We may find ourselves too bogged down in day-to-day living to think about and move towards our goals, or perhaps even convince ourselves that our dreams are not realistic or important.
However, it has been shown that even just being more in touch with our dreams, goals and values boosts mental well-being and resilience. Additionally working towards goals that are in line with our values is likely to enhance our satisfaction in life.
As your coach, I will work with you to dig deep to discover the goals that matter most to you and are in line with your intrinsic values. I will then help you explore your options for creating these outcomes and support you in planning and taking action towards them.
I will work collaboratively with you using experimentation to find ways of working that best suit you, drawing on a range of coaching models and tools.
Qualifications and Experience:
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Coaching from the University of East London and am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have a BA Hons degree in Politics and Sociology which has provided me with a thorough understanding and appreciation for social challenges and inequalities.
Additionally, I have over 4 years of experience within NHS mental health services working on a one-to-one basis and in group facilitation. Here I provide empowering support for people dealing with a wide range of challenges, including:
- Anxiety and depression
