Maryane Mwaniki Integrative Counsellor and Coach London E8Maryane Mwaniki:

Integrative Counsellor and Coach (MBACP)

My name is Maryane Mwaniki, and I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Coach at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston and Dalston, Hackney, London E8.

My work is focused on supporting people to build healthy relationships with themselves and others. I believe your ability to relate with other people is closely connected with your relationship with yourself.

I will create a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental space for us to work through your personal and professional challenges.

Our time together will provide an opportunity for you to discover your voice, and build self-awareness and confidence.

We will collaboratively explore your past and present to support your future.

Approach and experience:
I am a Personal Consultant which means I am able to seamlessly integrate counselling and coaching into my work. As a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor (MBACP), I work across a broad range of therapeutic approaches which means my work with you will be bespoke and authentically tailored to you.

I also specialise in pregnancy loss counselling. Whether you wish to talk about a miscarriage, abortion, or other pregnancy loss experience, I can provide you space and time to express your feelings, tell your story and manage your grief.

As an experienced Coach (life, career, and executive coach) I can work with you to identify your strengths, boost your confidence, and leverage tools and techniques to support growth and change. As an accredited Strengthscope® and StrengthscopeLeader™ practitioner, I can motivate you to discover and apply your unique strengths in different life situations and relationships.

I work with couples using the Prepare-Enrich and Gottman Institute model to support healthy communication, conflict resolution, collaboration, and connection.

My couples’ work normally involves practical exercises during sessions to enhance communication and intimacy.

I offer long and short-term work and have a particular interest in working with:

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.
