Hello, my name is Kirsty Coombs and I’m an experienced, professionally trained Psychodynamic Psychotherapist providing weekly therapy sessions to individuals online and in-person from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, London E8.
I am a registered professional member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) which means I work within strict professional guidelines and fully comply with the BACP ethical code.
I worked for several years within the NHS at the City and Hackney Specialist Psychotherapy Service and currently work in private practice full-time where I welcome anyone who feels that therapy may be of some help, whether you are just looking to have a few sessions to think about a specific issue or situation or are considering longer-term psychotherapy.
Psychotherapy can help to work through many issues. Stress, anxiety, feeling low or depressed, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, repeated behaviour patterns, bereavement, self-esteem, work problems, life-changes are just some of the reasons why you might want to try psychotherapy. Or you may simply want to get to know and understand yourself better.
Many people find it helpful to talk to an objective, professionally trained person outside of their family or circle of friends. Choosing the right therapist is important and involves finding someone you feel you can trust and work with. In my experience, it is often the strength of the relationship between the client and therapist which is the best indicator of a good outcome.
Whatever your reason for considering therapy, I provide a safe, confidential space where we can meet each week and work together to better understand the things that are causing you concern or difficulties.
You are welcome to contact me by telephone or email to discuss the possibility of working together, ask any questions that you might have, or to arrange an initial appointment. I will get back to you promptly and in the strictest confidence.
Sessions are 50 minutes long and my standard fee is £60.
