Kirsty Coombs Psychodynamic PsychotherapistKirsty Coombs:

Psychodynamic Psychotherapist (BACP)

Hello, my name is Kirsty Coombs and I’m an experienced, professionally trained Psychodynamic Psychotherapist providing weekly therapy sessions to individuals online and in-person from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, London E8.

I am a registered professional member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) which means I work within strict professional guidelines and fully comply with the BACP ethical code.

I worked for several years within the NHS at the City and Hackney Specialist Psychotherapy Service and currently work in private practice full-time where I welcome anyone who feels that therapy may be of some help, whether you are just looking to have a few sessions to think about a specific issue or situation or are considering longer-term psychotherapy.

Psychotherapy can help to work through many issues. Stress, anxiety, feeling low or depressed, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, repeated behaviour patterns, bereavement, work problems, and life transitions are just some of the reasons why you might want to try psychotherapy. Or you may simply want to get to know and understand yourself better.


Many people find it helpful to talk to an objective, professionally trained person outside of their family or circle of friends. Finding the right therapist is important and involves finding someone you feel you can trust and work with. In my experience, it is often the strength of the relationship between the client and therapist which is the best indicator of a good outcome.

Whatever your reason for considering therapy, I provide a safe, confidential space where we can meet each week and work together to better understand the things that are causing you concern or difficulties.

You are welcome to contact me by telephone or email me to discuss the possibility of working together, ask any questions that you might have, or arrange an initial appointment. I will get back to you promptly and in the strictest confidence.

My Fees:
Sessions are 50 minutes long and my standard fee is £70.

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

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.
