Jennifer Burn Therapeutic Counsellor

Jennifer Burn

Therapeutic Counsellor (MBACP)


My name is Jennifer Burn, I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor working at HQ Therapy Rooms in Hackney, E8.

My aim is to work with clients and help those struggling with emotional and psychological difficulties which can undermine their well-being and enjoyment of life.

I can also help those who simply want to understand what makes them ‘tick’.

I use my Integrative training creatively, which allows me to adapt to the specific needs of the person sitting with me.

I have great faith in the counselling process (which may seem daunting at first) and have seen first-hand how it can help people overcome their problems, unlock their true potential, and lead a better life.

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

What you can expect from counselling
Counselling can give you a greater sense of who you are, how you connect with others, help you create meaningful change in your life, and flourish as a person.

  • You can talk to someone who is listening to you carefully; who is not going to judge you (who is not a friend or a family member either).
  • Someone you can talk to, in private, about what specifically is troubling you, and possible strategies for overcoming your personal issues.
  • An observation of your patterns of behaviour, and their possible source. With a greater understanding, you can choose behaviours that are preferable to your life now.
  • Relationships are key to a human’s happiness and survival. Through getting to know how you relate to yourself and others, we can identify the ways in which you relate and why, and find ways that may serve you better.
  • An exploration of unfinished business from the past, which is presently having a detrimental effect on your life (and also that which serves you well).
  • We would look at how you view yourself: how valid; how kind?
  • We would investigate how you stay with, and cope, with difficult feelings, with the aim of improving your resilience.
  • I will facilitate and support you in making decisions that improve your life now and help lay down the groundwork for a future when counselling has run its course.

What happens next
If you have had enough of your struggles and distress and decide to get in touch, we would arrange the first session when we would assess if we could work together (without any obligation to continue). We would discuss what is concerning you, and the basics of the counselling process.

I really want people to live their lives as well and as happily as possible, and feel for those struggling to do so. If you are ready to make the changes, then I am here to help you.

My fees cost £60 (per 50-minute session).

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.
