Sean Taylor Counsellor and Psychotherapist London E8Sean Taylor:

Counsellor & Psychotherapist (BACP)

My name is Sean Taylor, I am a counsellor and psychotherapist working with adults face-to-face, online and by phone at HQ Therapy Rooms in Dalston, Hackney, London E8.

Life can often present us with unexpected testing situations that bring about experiences which may challenge our perceptions and beliefs in an unhealthy way. These challenges can potentially cause us to question our self-worth or abilities and inappropriately impact our self-esteem. Therapy offers a safe, private and confidential space where you can be heard considerably and respectfully without assumption, bias or judgement.

As your therapist, I am here to listen, consider and provide the time and space that you may need to adjust and settle into the therapeutic process, respectfully.

My support and assistance will always be provided with an attitude of positive regard towards you and your experiences and circumstance, with the acknowledgement of any attempts that you make in reaching your best and true self.

Very often, the real difficulty is not the circumstance itself, but rather our belief behind our experience that instructs the way we choose to respond to it; bereavement, family concerns, and addictions are prime examples of this, in which I can empathise, as fragments of my own experiences potentially may partially relate in a way that may be possible for me to help you to develop a deeper insight into your experiences.

My aim is to respectfully support and empower your autonomy In this emotional time, whether fortunate or unfortunate, so that we can both understand what your experiences symbolise to you and whether there are any barriers in those symbolic beliefs that are potentially causing or contributing to any issues at hand.

I will be there beside you in reflecting, exploring and processing any unwanted thoughts or certain behavioural patterns relating to your experiences so that you can identify whose or what ‘truth’ you have been experiencing and why so you can find a way to progress more fluently.

Having a sense of being accepted for who you are right now, flaws-and-all is vitally important in the counselling process, and so the work we do together is shaped by the level of mutual respect, trust and openness we are able to achieve.

I believe that all of us, given the right support, can learn effectively to self-manage our mental and emotional well-being. By booking an assessment with me, this is maybe the first step towards a more positive outlook.

I’m here to provide you with friendly, respectful, and comfortably safe therapeutic counselling experiences so that we can develop an ally based on a healthy and constructively therapeutic engagement.


My career path origins are rooted in the public sector and have been my focus of interest for over 15 years. My passion has always been with assisting and supporting others in their time of need and so I developed my career experiences firstly as a play and youth services, then at a children’s home residential services, family support worker, semi-independent support worker, residential services for vulnerable people, and observational family contact supervisor, respite residentials, specific needs teachers assistant.

I gained my work experience opportunity practising as a therapist with charities known as ‘Mind,’ ‘Barnet Carers,’ ‘Barnet Bereavement service’, ‘Hackney’s St joseph’s hospice’, and my other career experiences were based with ‘Hackney’, ‘Hammersmith’, ‘Tottenham’ & ‘Islington’ councils, ‘St Ann’s hospital’ mental health department, and currently in family mediation training for my accreditation.

My career journey has brought me to witness a variety of experiences that the aftermath can have on us, and through the opportunity to work with all ages, races, genders, relation preferences, and religions, I have seen what the simplest choices made towards improvement can do to someone.

It is a true privilege to witness someone begin to realise and actualise their own new beginning or an alternative choice of action in life and it is something that I wish for us all.

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.
