Kate Joseph Integrative Counsellor and PsychotherapistKate Joseph:

Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist (BACP)

Hello, my name is Kate Joseph and I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering therapy online or in person from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston Hackney, London E8.

My style is warm, flexible and collaborative. My primary focus is building a trusting therapeutic relationship in which clients feel safe to explore whatever brings them to therapy.

As an Integrative therapist, I believe there is no one size fits all approach. I am trained to tailor therapy to the individual needs of each client, drawing from a range of evidence-based approaches in which I am trained.

This includes Attachment Theory (AT), Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Somatic and CBT approaches (both second and third wave models).

I offer short, medium or long-term work, depending on your circumstances and hopes for therapy.

Experience and qualifications

I have over 7 years of experience working across NHS, private, and third sector settings.

I work with a broad range of clients across a number of issues and concerns including but not limited to, trauma and abuse, loss and grief, relationship difficulties, identity, career and work-related issues, and low self-esteem.

I have particular interest and experience in working with women in the perinatal period experiencing issues around fertility, pregnancy loss, birth trauma, adjusting to parenthood, identity issues, attachment and bonding difficulties and relationship struggles.

I hold a BACP-endorsed Post-graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and regularly update my skills and knowledge with continued professional development with training.

I am fully insured, DBS checked and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and abide by its code of ethics.

How it works

I offer an initial 15-minute call free of charge to discuss any questions before booking an initial consultation.

Our first consultation would then be an opportunity to explore in greater detail what brings you to therapy, your hopes and crucially to get a sense of how it is to work together.

If you decide you would like to continue, we would agree on a time for a regular weekly 50-minute session.


The Standard 50-minute session fee is £65.

I am committed to driving greater access to therapeutic services and I offer some allocated reduced-rate therapy cost slots for those without the means to pay the standard rate. Please get in touch to discuss this option.

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.
