Psychodynamic Counsellor & Psychotherapist, MSc, MBACP
My name is I Joelle Harari and I offer both short and long-term psychotherapy and counselling in an inclusive, non-judgmental environment in which we can work together to better understand whatever might be troubling you at the HQ Therapy rooms practice in Hackney, Central London.
As a modern and forward-thinking practitioner I will work collaboratively with you as a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist, focusing on developing an honest therapeutic relationship based on mutual respect. I do this by talking together about you and your life. In this way, you can begin to better understand the difficulties you may be having and the reasons they persist.
You may be considering therapy because of an existing mental health issue. It could be that you are feeling anxious or depressed. Perhaps a specific event has triggered some difficult emotions. Or maybe you are not sure why you feel like you do?
Modern life, particularly in a big city, can be hard to navigate. The pressures of juggling work, relationships and socialising in the digital age may feel isolating and you don’t know who to talk to. I hope that whatever has brought you to counselling, you can talk to me.
On contacting me, we can arrange an initial meeting which will give you the chance to meet me and for us to discuss how we may best work together. There is no obligation to continue with ongoing therapy after this meeting.
Training and Qualifications:
I have an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as a diploma in counselling. I also have a BA in History of Art. I am a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) and fully abide by their code of ethics within my practice.
In addition to working in private practice, I work as a student counsellor at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama and have worked at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
Before training I spent many years in various demanding business roles and thus have a wide range of experience working with individuals and in organisations within and beyond the field of psychotherapy.
I am fully insured and my work is supervised, and I continue to attend workshops and seminars as part of my professional development.
