Joe Moran | Counselling and Psychotherapy for Individuals and Couples in East London

Counselling & Psychotherapy

Counselling and Psychotherapy offers a supportive and dynamic context for reflection and self-inquiry. It can be a catalyst to stimulate change and growth, an opportunity to consciously address that which limits one’s life and relationships, a challenge to come to know one’s needs, and a resource from which to realise goals in daily life. It can also offer a space for emotional respite, quietude and healing.

Counselling tends to be shorter term or time-limited concerned with tackling specific issues or set of concerns, whilst psychotherapy offers a broader, more holistic approach, often addressing more deep-seated issues.

Joe is continuing to work during the Covid-19 pandemic, seeing clients remotely via Zoom. Current available sessions are listed below (as of 1 May 2020).  


Individual therapy
Individual therapy is offered on a regular, weekly basis with the same appointment time and duration (50mins) each week. Early morning, daytime and evening sessions are available. Sessions may be short term (12 weeks) or open-ended with agreed review points. At times and as appropriate, Joe offers twice-weekly or double sessions (1hr 40mins).

Couple Therapy
Joe’s approach to couple therapy is quite structured, drawing upon a range of communications tools and exercises to deepen or re-engage dialogue. This offers the foundation from which the couple may work together to explore and address the challenges or conflicts bringing them to therapy.

Group Facilitation
Joe facilitates group work in professional and business contexts focused on leadership, dialogue and collaboration. His work in this area also addresses communication, interpersonal dynamics and individual health and wellbeing.

Initial sessions
An initial session is an opportunity to explore the concerns bringing one to therapy, whether the therapist and client could work well together, timeframe and ways forward. Should an initial session not lead to working together, referrals to other counsellors and therapists are offered.

For couples, first sessions culminate in an agreement for an initial working period or for the couple to reflect upon whether working together would be a good fit. There will be reviews at agreed times to look at completing or further work.
