Dr Helen Damon Integrative psychologist , E1
Hello, I'm Helen. I'm a Counselling Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS), and I'm a Lecturer, Personal Tutor and Research Supervisor on the Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at Regent's University London.
In my private practice, I offer open-ended, face-to-face psychological counselling to individuals at The Therapeutic Rooms in Brick Lane (www.thetherapeuticrooms.co.uk). As a Counselling Psychologist, I'm trained in several forms of therapy, including person-centred, existential-phenomenological, psychodynamic and CBT. This enables me to tailor the way I work to best suit your unique needs, goals and preferences as a client.
I have worked in NHS, charity, community and school settings with adults and young people. I'm experienced in working with people who have a wide range of problems, including issues relating to abuse, anxiety, bereavement, depression, illness, life transitions, personal identity, relationships, self-esteem, and stress.
I believe that, by coming to therapy, you're making an investment in yourself. As such, it's important that you take time to find the right therapist for you. As your therapist, I will offer you empathy, warmth and the utmost respect. I will work with you to explore, understand, and make changes in response to the issues that you have brought to therapy. If you're thinking of working with me, please get in touch. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have, and to arrange an initial appointment with you so that we can think together about how your therapeutic needs might best be met.
