Will Adolphy Trainee Integrative Counsellor London E8Will Adolphy:

Trainee Integrative Counsellor (BACP student member)

My name is Will Adolphy, I am one of the trainee therapists working in the low-cost therapy and counselling service at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston and Dalston, Hackney, London E8.

Approach: Person-centred with a touch of Psychodynamic and Gestalt whilst drawing on the language of Internal Family Systems (a person has many parts that are all trying to help).

Person-centred means I always start with my client’s frame of reference and hold the quality of the relationship between us, a key element in the therapeutic process.

The answers are within my client and I’m here as a facilitator, holding a space for them to discover these answers.

I draw on a Psychodynamic approach to help clients uncover past patterns that are intruding on their present life. And I lean on experiential approaches such as Internal Family Systems and Gestalt to help clients build a relationship with themselves and their pain.

It’s in this relationship that one can shift the way they relate to themselves (their feelings, emotions, and parts). I consider it good practice to foster the client’s autonomy through the process, particularly when considering interventions.

We can start wherever you wish to start and go wherever you feel called to.


Core theory/philosophy:

  • Integrative: I have a range of therapy modalities and tools in my tool kit to use based on what seems most beneficial.
  • Person-Centred: the answers are within you. How can I be useful to you? What do you need right now?


Influenced by:

  • Internal Family Systems Therapy: All parts are welcome.
  • Gestalt Therapy: Listening to our feelings instead of wishing them away.
  • Psychodynamic/Relational: What’s happening in the room now that is connected to your past?


Interested in:

  • Bioenergetic work: Using the body & movement to achieve cathartic release.
  • Meditation: Shifting awareness inward.
  • Visualisations: A powerful tool, to actively explore new perspectives.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.

Can I Contact You For Advice About Getting Therapy?

Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive therapist can often make you feel better and help you face your problems. It feels good to be listened to and to know that someone cares about you and wants to help. It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting relationship to help you make positive changes in your life.

But how do you know what type of therapy is right for you? Taking the first steps in finding the right therapist can be the biggest hurdle for newcomers, so we have made it easy. Simply get in touch with us using the low-cost help and advice form and one of our fully qualified therapists can work with you to make sure you get the right advice you need in order to receive the correct low-cost therapy and counselling services you require.

Our practitioners deal with a wide range of therapy issues using different types of therapy modalities tailored to the types of clients we work with. We also cater for people who are beset with financial difficulties, offering them services ranging from low-cost therapy and reduced-rate therapy to working with seasoned, qualified and accredited talking therapists.
