Hi I’m Jeff. So tell me are you feeling overwhelmed with anxiety, anger or depression? I specialise in helping you move past these issues. I know life has been hard lately. and I am here for you. I know you want to move on with your life but something always seems to hold you back. Sometimes it is overwhelming to the extent that you know you need more than a chat with friends or a good night out. This goes deeper, and it is hampering you more than you would like to admit. You want some freedom from all this negative emotional baggage you seem to be carrying - it is time to let it all go... but how? It is time to get in touch…

Are you looking for a counsellor because you are feeling stuck and unable to stop behaving in unhelpful old patterns? You may have an idea of how you would like to be, but don’t know how to get there. You may find it hard to fit in and connect to people, feeling that everyone else is doing it better. You may be finding it hard to accept yourself as you are and be wondering what you have to offer. Anxiety and depression make it difficult to move away from this place. If you are on the autistic spectrum, these problems can be magnified. Finding a way out of this on your own can seem impossible.

Hi, I’m Sarah. I became a counsellor as I believe in the healing power of the counselling relationship. Sometimes we can feel lost and alone with how we feel. Having someone to share and work through our thoughts and feelings with, in a safe, nonjudgemental environment can help us to make the changes we want to make and begin to move forward with our lives.

Are you finding life hard right now? Do you know something’s not quite right, but are struggling to make sense of what's going on? You may be experiencing difficulty in your relationships with others, either at work, or in the family. You may have noticed that it’s becoming harder to regulate your emotions, or impossible to make decisions about your own life. Talking to someone neutral can help you get back in touch with what you really feel, leaving you free to make the decisions you need to get back on track. Whatever your situation, I can help you make sense of whatever's going on, and support you in finding a way through.

Counselling can be the first step toward better self care and prioritising your own needs. It can help with understanding the choices you have in life. It can be used to work on issues such as anxiety, depression or anger. It can be helpful to look at the past and understand how it impacts the present. Re-framing this can lead to a better understanding and maybe less self blame or shame. We can carry burdens which aren't ours to carry and counselling can be a safe place to explore this. It can help for the management of difficult relationships in our lives.

My practice offers a confidential space for clients to to focus on self and explore subjects that people won't speak with your friends or family. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space to unravel what is behind those unhelpful thinking styles. With my help, clients can find answers that feel right for them. This can build confidence and resilience, and clients can take control of their own life. I will listen to all of my client's presenting problems. However, this is not all that I do. When my clients are ready, we do a deep transformational work that can sometimes feel too overwhelming when doing it alone.

As we move through life we will experience many changes, some for the better, some leaving us with feelings that may start to impact on other areas of our lives. It can feel very scary when suddenly things that didn't used to worry or distress us seem now to be a problem. Or it could be that you just need to understand why you feel the way you do about certain situation. We can feel lonely and isolated within the problem, this is when counselling can give you the space to explore what is causing the problem without the advice or direction that family and friends can sometime give.

Hi. My name is Dan. Most of us seem to spend lots of our time thinking (or maybe worrying?) about our past, or envisioning our future. The difficult truth however is that in actuality the only genuine experience of life we can have is here, now, in the present moment. When we talk about our thoughts and feelings, our relationship to them changes. It's not magic. My role is simply to listen to you with compassion, without judgement, and perhaps help you to hear yourself differently, in the “safe space” of a confidential and (when it works) unique relationship. You are and can only ever possibly be the greatest expert on you.

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.
