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.
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.
