Alessia Vignali (BACP):
Integrative Counsellor & Coach
My name is Alessia Vignali and I am an Integrative Counsellor & Coach practicing at HQ Therapy Rooms in Hackney, E8. I draw on multiple approaches (such as Person-centred, CBT and BSFT) using different tools and techniques, in order to provide the best fit for each client’s needs, offering a confidential, non-judgemental space where to feel safe and contained whilst being listened to.
What I do:
I can offer both Counselling or Personal Consultancy which is a model for the integration of counselling and coaching in which I was trained by its creators at University of East London where I completed my Postgraduate Diploma.
The perspective is that a person’s life cannot be divided in compartmentalised parts but rather needs to be addressed holistically in terms of thoughts, feelings and behaviours, while at the same time considering goals, dreams and aspirations, as in these lies the ultimate power to motivate and facilitate change.
Through our working collaboration we will aim to increase self-awareness, facilitate exploration of surfacing themes and arrive at deeper reflections to assist you in reaching your own solutions or a more functional appraisal to any situation and a decrease in distress.
I have more than 14 years experience of working within the addiction field and I am currently employed by the NHS. I can work with any type of addiction, be it drugs, alcohol, smoking, gambling, food, sex, and other compulsive behaviours.
I am also a qualified children’s counsellor and volunteered for Place2Be in a primary school using a combination of person-centered, psychodynamic and play-therapy approaches to enable children to express hidden feelings, having their voices heard, facilitate the many transitions a young person faces in their developmental stages.
Other areas I work with are:
Anxiety, panic attacks, depression, abuse, suicidal tendencies, physical and mental health issues, rape, DV, trauma, gender dysmorphia, sexuality, relationships, divorce, loss, separation, marital difficulties, self-harming, loss, death, disability.
