If you are struggling with feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, or in any way out-of-whack, being able to utilise a confidential and non-judgemental space to talk can be the most valuable tool we have. The desire to enjoy life more than we currently are or have done for a while can begin to weigh heavy on our already overloaded shoulders, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Using therapy as a tool to grow and progress while healing our wounds, new or old, deep or shallow, can be extremely effective in improving our quality of life.

Is there something going on for you right now that you are not sure how to explain? Feel a sense of being lost, worried, sad, scared, angry or anxious but not sure why? Life can be difficult and counselling can help you explore what is going on. I believe we can work together and start to unpick issues and begin to understand them, improve communication, increase self-confidence and feel more empowered. I work with adults, couples and young people and love seeing a person walk away more relaxed, and in a better place. Counselling is all about you and finding your own answers.

Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious, struggling to cope? Are you feeling lost, uncertain and alone? You may find yourself functioning in life, but feel less engaged or less 'present'. Maybe life feels like an upward struggle, work and relationships feel less fulfilling perhaps? The anticipation of loss, judgement and being labelled vulnerable or weak can feel like a huge barrier and prevent you sharing your feelings or seeking support.

Do you have meltdowns and feel like you're losing control? Are you self harming or using behaviours that are not in your best interest? Do you have awful nightmares where you wake up in a sweat and you can't get back to sleep? Or maybe in the daytime you suddenly remember, or feel things that you can't explain? And they feel so upsetting you try anything not to have them? On the other hand, it might be 'not' remembering things that troubles you, it might be memory gaps, daydreaming, losing time or feeling unreal? Maybe the most painful thing for you is struggling with relationships, which leaves you feeling lonely and scared.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
