Yoko Crohill Integrative Arts Psychotherapist London E8Yoko Crohill:

Integrative Arts Psychotherapist (HCPC)

Hi, my name is Yoko Crohill and I am an Integrative Arts psychotherapist working with adults, face-to-face from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, London E8. I also work online with clients across the UK.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore your concerns, difficulties, or feelings that might be hard to express or think about. I will sit alongside you through the process of exploration, connections and change.

I believe that therapy is collaborative work between the therapist and the client and that the therapeutic relationship is at the core of the process. I work together with the client to create a sense of trust and safety, where you will feel listened to and understood.

I see that we are all unique and complex. We experience our lives differently and different approaches might be helpful for different people. As an integrative psychotherapist, I am able to draw on a variety of theories and approaches to meet your individual needs.

As an art psychotherapist, I can also offer the arts, imagination and creativity in sessions. You do not need any artistic “skills” or even to use the arts at all! They are there if needed.

They can be a gateway to expression, exploration and communication. They can support you to be in touch with your feelings, thoughts and experiences – for example, when we “cannot find a word”, but we know “it is a bit like…”. For some people, an emotional experience connects with a colour, an object, a fairy tale, music, a phrase, a bodily sensation or a movement.

The arts hold emotions, whether conscious or unconscious, verbal or non-verbal, past or present. And art makings can simply be helpful for calming, regulating or just having fun, which might be what you need at that moment.

While I offer open and flexible approaches for your individual needs, I make sure our sessions are confidential, private and safe. I work ethically, adhere with professional bodies for safe practice and I am continuously updating my skills and knowledge base. I have regular supervision to make sure my practice is ethical, effective and appropriate for your needs and goals.

I hold an MA in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy and am registered with HCPC. I have worked in community-based charities and NHS settings. I have experience working with people from diverse backgrounds and with issues including depression, anxiety, substance misuse, grief and loss, childhood trauma, sexual abuse, domestic violence, identities and intercultural issues.

Please contact me to arrange a free initial consultation to find out about the therapy I offer, discuss what you would like to get from therapy and see if we are a good fit.

I offer sessions in English and Japanese.

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 fill out the form below in confidence, and one of our fully qualified referral therapists can work with you to make sure you connect with the right practitioner and receive the correct therapy and counselling services you require.
