Integrative Psychotherapist (UKC, MBACP)
My name is Joe Moran. I am a registered psychotherapist working in private practice at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, London E8.
I work with individuals and couples offering short to long-term counselling and psychotherapy focused on clients’ or couples’ individual needs and goals. I have worked in private practice since 2004 with a varied client group from a range of social, cultural and professional backgrounds. I am experienced in working with issues related to depression and anxiety, relationships, family, employment, career and personal finance, life crisis and life changes, loss and bereavement, sexuality and sexual identity, additional and spiritual concerns.
I view counselling and psychotherapy as a supportive and dynamic context for reflection and self-inquiry. It can be a catalyst to stimulate change and growth; an opportunity to consciously address that which limits our life and our relationships; a challenge to come to know our needs; and a resource from which to realise goals in our daily lives.
It can also offer a space for quietude and healing. Counselling tends to be shorter-term or time-limited concerned with tackling specific issues or set of concerns, with psychotherapy offering a broader, more holistic approach addressing more deep-seated issues.
- Individual therapy: Sessions (55mins) are offered on a regular, weekly basis with the same appointment time and duration by agreement. Early morning, daytime and evening sessions are available and where appropriate twice-weekly or double sessions (1hr 40mins) are offered.
- Couples Therapy: My approach to couples therapy is quite structured, drawing upon a range of communications tools and exercises to deepen or re-engage open dialogue. This offers the foundation from which a couple may work together to explore and address the challenges or conflicts that bring them to therapy.
- Group Facilitation: I facilitate group work in professional and business contexts focused on leadership, organisational development and working with others. I also lead sessions addressing workplace health and wellbeing.
I am registered with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I trained at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in West London, and hold a Masters (2006-08), Postgraduate Diploma (2001-04) and Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy (2000).
I also completed a Post-certification Diploma in Couple Therapy in 2013. Whilst training I undertook a clinical psychiatric attachment at Wonford House Hospital and have also worked professionally in acute psychiatric settings.
Appointments & Fees:
Appointments are offered at HQ Therapy Rooms with an initial session being an opportunity to explore the concerns bringing one to seek therapy as well as options for working together. I am currently seeing clients face to face and online (Zoom, Skype, etc).
Fees are £75 per 55-min session for individuals and £85 per 55-min session for couples with some discounted places available.
