Trainee Psychotherapist & Coach
Hello, My name is Colin Houlihan, I am a trainee psychotherapist and coach working in the low-cost therapy & counselling service at HQ Therapy Rooms in Hackney, London E8.
Currently, I am in the second year of an MSc in Integrative Counselling and Coaching at the University of East London.
I am registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, whilst working towards full accreditation in the future. My course is integrative, meaning it incorporates many different aspects of counselling theory into practice.
This allows me to cater to which skills and techniques I use to each individual client, whilst always offering an inclusive, non-judgemental environment for us to work together. Although this is true, I am sure you have read that line before?
For me, the cornerstone of any therapeutic work is creating an honest and authentic therapeutic relationship, based on mutual respect and shared goals. We can achieve this by talking together about you, your life, and where you want it to lead.
I bring myself to each session, as I strongly believe that I cannot expect clients to explore themselves if I am not willing to do the same too.
I have experience in working with a variety of issues including:
- Lack of self-esteem and self-confidence
- Sex and porn addiction
People consider therapy for a number of different reasons; perhaps you have a pre-existing mental health condition, a specific current or historic event you wish to overcome, or it can be as simple as not understanding why you feel like you do? Before we can heal and grow it is important that we first become aware of who we are and what is happening to us. I offer a confidential, inviting, and holding space for us to begin this journey together.
Whether we begin in a coaching or therapy capacity honesty, trust and growth will be woven throughout with a focus on giving you the tools and agency to use this time in the best way for you.
I am available to work with long-term and short-term clients, both online, or face-to-face formats.
