About me

Joe Moran is a registered psychotherapist and clinical supervisor working in private practice in Haggerston, East London. He works with couples and individuals offering short to long-term counselling and psychotherapy focused upon each client’s needs and goals. Joe works with a varied client group with those from a range of social, cultural and professional backgrounds. He also works with organisations facilitating learning and development processes, as a clinical supervisor with individual psychotherapists and groups, and is a guest lecturer and facilitator working with diploma and postgraduate student therapists. Joe has a professional background in the arts and charity sectors working in leadership, project management, governance and consultancy capacities, and has strong interests in community organising, participation and social justice.

Joe is experienced in working with issues related to depression and anxiety, relationships, family, work, career and personal finance, inequity and discrimination, life crisis and life changes, trauma, loss and bereavement, sexuality and sexual identity, addiction in many forms and growing up in a home where addiction is present, spirituality and spiritual concerns. Joe’s approach is ‘integrative’ and relational drawing upon humanist, psychodynamic, existential, systemic and transpersonal approaches in which he trained.

Further information

An initial session is an opportunity to explore the concerns that are bringing one to seek counselling or psychotherapy, what an appropriate timeframe may be, how counselling or therapy might proceed and a chance to see whether the therapist and client will work well together.

Should an initial session not to lead to working together, referrals to other counsellors and therapists may be offered.

For couples, the first session will culminate in an offer to the couple to go away and think if it feels right for them or the offer of a six-twelve week initial contract. At six or twelve weeks, there will be a review to consider completing at that stage or continuing on.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
