I know how hard it is to take the first steps towards seeking counselling. Reaching out to talk to someone about your problems can feel scary, vulnerable or overwhelming. Counselling provides a safe and confidential space to discuss your problems and difficult feelings. As your therapist, I will provide an empathic and supportive environment to enable you to explore and understand your feelings and take steps for positive change.

Perhaps you are finding life difficult at the moment and you would value help to find your way through being 'stuck'. Life can sometimes lead to emotional difficulties, feelings of stress, which affect our relationships or work. Counselling offers the opportunity to talk through your thoughts and feelings, helping you identify, explore and understand what doesn’t feel right within. The issues you are facing might be leading to low self-esteem, confusion, depression, addiction, suicidal thoughts or self-harm. Counselling can help you develop internal resources, and alternative ways of thinking to help you move forward in your life.

Sometimes life feels overwhelming, your pot of energy feels nearly empty, you feel isolated from those that you love or the impact of others words or behaviours are causing you pain. You just want to feel like the real you but this feels out of reach. This may be a build up of life experiences or something might have happened that has triggered a sudden change in you. You want someone to talk to, to unravel your thoughts and feelings but are unsure where who to turn to.

My focus is to support people to develop insight into the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that underpin their difficulties. You may have been feeling really low, or perhaps anxious? You might have found difficult completing the things that you used to enjoy? Or past events might be stopping you from living the life you want to live. I am passionate about CBT as it is a goal focused, collaborative, well researched and can transform people's lives. Not everyone has heard of CBT, however it has quickly become one of the most popular choices of therapy available and can help with so many life problems, including those listed above.

People come to talk to me for lots of reasons. Sometimes there is a defined problem, it may be longstanding or recent; it may be related to a life event or something upcoming that is raising anxiety; there may be questions or difficulties in some key relationships, or at work; it may not be clear at all, but you are experiencing unease and wish to get to the bottom of why. Coming to talk to a trained and registered psychotherapist guarantees a secure, safe and confidential space in which to explore any or all of the above, alone, as a couple or in a family group.

Are you feeling like you are: 'out of sorts', 'depressed', 'sad', 'anxious', 'lonely', 'worried', 'stressed', 'fearful' or any other description that just doesn't feel like the real you? Do you need someone to 'hear and understand' you, to help you make sense of it all. Maybe you've tried family members, loved ones and friends and now feel that you are burdening them, getting nowhere and not really able to truly open up to them for fear of being judged, shamed or shocking them.

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.
