Marie Yeo (BACP):
Psychotherapist & Coach
My name is Marie Yeo and I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and coach working at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, London E8. I am registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work integratively, meaning I can draw on a range of theories and techniques as we work together.
I work with the Personal Consultancy model, which is a framework combining counselling (to rebalance) and coaching (enabling growth) techniques. It offers structure to therapeutic practice and allows scope for you to explore, identify, restore and bring long-lasting change. It is a map to navigate through your journey; building strong foundations along with skills and courage to achieve your aspirations. Metaphorically speaking, counselling can be seen as strengthening the foundations of a house whereas coaching is working on the house itself.
I welcome honesty and authenticity from you and will offer the same, bringing myself to each session. I understand this can be scary and even the decision to come to counselling requires courage. Facing ourselves and our difficulties is never easy!
To be able to explore overwhelming feelings without feeling judged requires trust to be present and building a strong therapeutic relationship is at the heart of my approach. Together we will explore your difficulties and move forwards towards meaningful change and growth in your life.
I have experience working with a range of issues including:
- Relationship difficulties
- Pregnancy & postnatal adjustment
- Grief & bereavement
- Family difficulties
Having said this, I believe we are all unique and I work with people, not problems. I will offer you a caring, friendly and accepting space to confidentially explore yourself and your difficulties.
Opening up to someone outside of your friends and family can be helpful to see things from a different perspective. The confidentiality and non-judgemental approach offered at the heart of counselling means you can feel free to explore even the most difficult feelings, allowing you to feel seen and heard.
Prior to retraining as a psychotherapist and coach, I worked in the Financial Services industry for 20 years, so I am well aware of the pressure of the corporate environment.
I am available to work with both short term and long term clients, face to face or online.
