My name is Becky O’Grady and I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist based at HQ Therapy Rooms in Dalston, Hackney, E8.
I understand emotional health as being on a spectrum, where depending on our life experiences and what is going on around us at any given time, we might be struggling more or less to manage the expectations of life.
I specialise in working collaboratively and compassionately with people to overcome anxiety, trauma (including childhood abuse, sexual assaults & violence) and relational and emotional regulation difficulties (including those diagnosed with a ‘personality disorder’). I also work to support people to overcome difficulties with depression, extremes in mood, alcohol/drugs and relationship issues.
I am trained as a Clinical Psychologist (systemic, narrative and CBT) and have done further training in mentalization-based therapy, narrative-exposure therapy (trauma-focused approach), psychodynamic and narrative approaches. I work integratively, drawing on a combination of approaches, depending on individual needs.
My experience is largely within the NHS working across a whole range of difficulties: including anxiety, low mood, addictions, trauma, dissociative experiences, and emotional regulation and relational problems. I have worked within a complex trauma service and supported survivors of childhood sexual abuse, domestic and sexual violence and the effects of war.
I believe that therapy can come in many different guises. Whilst talking in a room with one person can be effective for some, connecting with a group, or being in nature can be equally valuable for others.
If you would like to get in touch – just email or text me and I will reply to arrange a time to chat on the phone or to meet for a first session (50 minutes). The initial session would be focused on getting to know one another, understanding your reasons for coming to therapy and what you are hoping to get from the sessions. If you are happy with the session, we can then book in a further session.
Do feel free to request a telephone chat first if you are unsure about therapy, have any questions or just want to talk things through first.
£70/50-minute session. Concessionary rates available for those on lower earnings or not earning.
I currently have availability on Friday mornings and Monday evenings.
