Ellie Harvey Kummer Integrative CounsellorEllie Harvey:

Trainee Integrative Therapist & Coach (BACP student member)

Hello, my name is Ellie Harvey and I am an Integrative Counsellor and coach in training, offering low-cost therapy and counselling at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston and Dalston, Hackney, London E8.

People come to therapy and counselling for many different reasons and at different points in their lives.

Therapy can be a powerful tool for dealing with life’s challenges and exploring what matters most to you.

I know that coming to therapy can feel daunting and vulnerable. Therefore I hope to put you at ease, by creating a genuine and non-judgmental environment where you feel comfortable to bring 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, instead, responding to what is happening in the room.

In this way, I am able to work flexibly and collaboratively to tailor the therapeutic process to what is working for you.

Some of the schools of thought integrated into my practice are; Person-centered, Existential, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Solution-focused therapy.

Qualifications and Experience:
I am currently undertaking a Masters in Integrative Counselling and Coaching at the University of East London and am working towards accreditation with 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 3 years of experience working within NHS mental health services as a Health and Wellbeing Peer Coach and Peer Counselling Facilitator. Here I provide empowering support for people dealing with a wide range of challenges, including:

I am currently seeing clients face to face, online (Zoom, Skype, etc) and by phone.

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.
