Helen Britton Integrative Counsellor London E8Helen Britton:

Integrative Counsellor (MBACP)

My name is Helen Britton. I am an integrative counsellor based at HQ Therapy Rooms in Dalston, Hackney, London E8.

Sometimes life throws us something particularly challenging to deal with, other times everyday events may accumulate until one tiny thing feels overwhelming.

This can leave us at the mercy of our emotions, neither living nor feeling the way we’d like.

Therapy can be an invaluable way to manage the challenges you might be facing however they have arisen.

Whether you need space to offload or wish to change the patterns of a lifetime, I can offer you a warm, compassionate, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship.

Together we can work towards a deeper understanding of what’s causing your difficulties and how these might be addressed.

The focus of therapy should be about living a more fulfilled and contented life in the present and future. However, unhelpful ways of being are often rooted in the past.

By exploring this together we can help you understand what might be getting in your way.

Greater self-knowledge and awareness developed in therapy can help to develop better relationships, not just with others but with ourselves.

This can lead to increased self-compassion and a more contented way of being.

Equally, it can be healing to process difficult emotions and experiences that you might have pushed aside in order to get on with day-to-day life.

My training is integrative, which means I’ve studied a wide range of theories, from psychodynamic to humanistic. This allows me a flexible approach when it comes to the theories I draw on – therapy should fit the client and not the other way around.

If you’d like to find out more about how working with me might be useful to you, we could discuss this in an initial 20-minute phone call.

I’m currently working face-to-face and online and sessions are held weekly, at the same time.


My fees:
For an initial assessment and ongoing work, my standard rate is £65 per 50-minute session depending on time and location. I also have a limited number of reduced-rate spaces.


Training and qualifications:
Diploma in Integrative Counselling, the Minster Centre

I’m currently completing an MA/Advanced Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Minster Centre, accredited by Middlesex University.

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.
