The Counselling Space is a project that has been created with the vision of offering timely, free and accessible mental health support to anyone wishing to access it.
We believe mental health care should not have a price.
This project it's an alternative to current long waiting lists in the NHS and high fees of private mental health care.
We have been extremely lucky in being welcomed by MillCo Project allowing us to start serving the community at the Rose Lipman Building in Haggerston, Hackney.
Please note the project is only open on Tuesdays and by appointment only, as this is a start-up new community project we do not yet have capacity for a drop-in service. If you wish to access our services, or feel curious of how we could help, then do contact us by filling in the form on our Contact page and request your appointment.
Our type of therapy: There is a wide variety of therapy styles, often it can confuse us in what their methodology is about and how they can support us. All methodologies can work for you. The therapy provided at The Counselling Space follows the Person Centred approach, which means that it puts the client and their feelings at the centre of therapy.
Person Centred therapy does not diagnose, or give homework to bring to the next session.
Our Lead Counsellor and founder, Claudia Turbet-Delof, is a qualified Person Centred Counsellor, a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists UK (BACP), a trained Group Therapist and former Youth Worker that has worked with children and young people at risk of exclusion in and outside schools in the boroughs of Hackney, Islington and Tower Hamlets.
Claudia is of Latin American origin migrating to England thirteen years ago; her own troubled childhood and experience of discrimination because of gender and race is what led her get involved in the charity sector supporting empowerment of women, healthy transition to adulthood for children and young people and cultural diversity.
Therapy can be in English and, or in Spanish
