Eszter Ivan Embodied Dance and Movement Psychotherapist London E8Eszter Ivan:

Embodied, Dance & Movement Psychotherapist (ADMP UK, UKCP)

My name is Eszter Ivan, I am an embodied psychotherapist qualified in dance movement psychotherapy in UK and psychology, integrative hypnotherapy in Hungary.

Currently supervisor trainee and part-time research student.

I am seeing clients in-person at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, London E8, and online.

I work with people who are seeking:

– To improve their quality of life.

– New ways of connecting with their body, raising their self and body awareness.

– Help to recover from their traumas and find meaning in life after losing loved ones.

– Change in dealing with their persistent somatic symptoms, low mood, or anxiety.

– Support in facing relational challenges in their professional and private life.

I always have believed in the power of the body to support us in exploring our feelings related to our concerns and problems or anything mentioned above in our everyday life.

Working in a non-judgmental and safe space connecting to and expressing our sensations verbally and non-verbally leads to a deeper understanding of what is happening in the present moment and how to initiate the change we are looking for.

No prior experience in movement is required at all.


My rates:
£70 for a weekly 50-min session in person.
£60 for a weekly 50-min session online

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.
