Hagar Lee, Counsellor, PGDip MBACP (Registered)
With all the uncertainty and anxiety caused by COVID-19 - I am offering online or telephone sessions at these challenging times.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I am a qualified Psychosynthesis counsellor and I provide a safe environment where you can share what you are going through, begin to understand and find ways to cope with your life difficulties, explore your deeper self and invite more self-compassion, acceptance and kindness into your life.
I work from a small therapy practice called E8 Therapy, located in the heart of Dalston, a short walking distance from Dalston Junction.
~ ABOUT COUNSELLING ~
You might be seeking counselling because you are suffering from depression or anxiety, or you’re feeling stuck and frustrated. Or perhaps you have experienced a painful life event, such as the breakup of a relationship or loss of a job.
It can be very confusing and frightening to go through these crises, making us aware of our vulnerabilities and often leaving us feeling lonely in our plight.
These crucial periods are where change is inevitable; by considering counselling, you may start developing awareness and the process of healing, allowing yourself the possibility of something new to emerge.
I believe each of us holds our innate wisdom within... Yet, we sometimes need someone else, provided by the therapeutic relationship - to compassionately help us see things more clearly; to deeply listen to us and sometimes challenge us; help us develop trust in our own intuition, intelligence, feelings and choices - leading to more acceptance of ourselves while facing life more maturely and realistically.
~ CONTACT ME TO GET STARTED ~
If you are interested in experiencing what it might be like to work with me, please get in touch on the details above. We can then arrange an initial session to get to know one another and find out whether the support I offer would be beneficial to you.
We will discuss what brings you to therapy and what are your expectations. You can ask me any questions you may have about the process and my approach, and by the end of the initial session we will aim to agree if we would like to continue working together.
If we decide to work together, the ongoing sessions will be 50 minutes long and will be provided on a weekly basis.
Training, qualifications & experience

I am Registered Member MBACP and abide by BACP ethical framework.
I attend regular clinical supervision to support my work, and invest in my continued professional and personal development as a counsellor.
I presently work in private practice.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
