Joe Moran Integrative PsychotherapistJoe Moran

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 work from an ‘integrative’ perspective drawing upon humanist, psychodynamic, existential and transpersonal approaches in which I trained.

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.

My Services:

  • 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.

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.
