Sometimes in life we feel disoriented and troubled, not knowing which way to turn. We might be going through difficulties including stress and anxiety, relationship and sexuality-related difficulties, low self-esteem, feeling lost, depression, loneliness and obsessive thoughts. During these times, the gentle support of someone on our side can help bring clarity. Together, we will engage with your deepest worries and explore creative ways of dealing with them.

I have trained in existential psychotherapy, and I apply this in my work with clients. The starting point is the experience of the client, to provide the opportunity for them to examine their understanding of life, and the problems and dilemmas they face; to reassess their goals and desires. It provides an opportunity to consider how their choices have been constrained, perhaps by the views and expectations of others, but also by constraints rooted in our society. Understanding can lead to questioning, and growth, possibly in new directions.

Psychotherapist, MA, HCPC-Art Therap.
Sometimes we experience feelings of anger, stress, anxiety, depression and loneliness which can dominate our lives. As an Art Therapist I would offer a warm and accepting psychotherapeutic relationship where both positive and negative emotions can be explored and understood through the medium of art. I offer a chance for clients to discover the creativity within their inner selves and to have a shared experience of exploring a different method of expression when some feelings are just too deep for words. Above all, I offer a comforting space, where my clients can become empowered and lead a more positive life.

Counsellor, MSc, MBACP
Coming to see a counsellor can be a daunting experience. You may feel anxious, embarrassed or scared, however, it can be a relief to be able to talk to someone who doesn’t have a stake in your life. I'll give you the space and time you deserve to finally get to know yourself, find acceptance and experience the change. I'll help you to find a new perspective of looking at things, clear the fog and find clarity and hope; recognise unhelpful patterns in your thinking and behaviour and identify other, more helpful ones; recognise difficult feelings and find ways to live with them; find a way to release feelings of stuckness and move on.

Psychotherapist, MSc, MBACP
It can feel hard, sometimes impossible, to change the way we think, behave and react to certain situations. If you gain an increased understanding by exploring patterns then this can help you make sense of things, which can help you feel more in control and manage emotions that otherwise feel overwhelming. The therapeutic relationship is unique. I lay the foundation for the work we can do together. Feeling truly understood can be a rare experience that allows you to open up and to discover more about yourself. With an increased self-awareness can come a more regulated way of being and thinking.

By working intuitively, creatively, empathically and with sensitivity, I remain fully engaged whilst providing encouragement, support and understanding, all of which contribute to a feeling of being valued and empowered. This approach, combined with utilizing a range of theoretical models ensures a personalized therapeutic experience.

Psychologist, MSc, GMBPsS
Do you ever spend time worrying about things you have said or done in a meeting? to a friend? to your boss? Do you ever get trapped in self-critical thinking - where after a mistake you constantly berate yourself? Do you ever wake up in the night or when your trying to do something important and you can't control negative thoughts? Are you going through a period of transition and feeling stressed, confused or lost? I've always been fascinated by the power of the brain - how it can work for us and against us. With over 7 years of experience, I've witnessed first-hand how our mindset can either lift us up or hold us back.

I am motivated by a lifelong curiosity in people and their capacity to develop. I believe that the relationship between therapist and patient can be a vehicle for growth. I have worked with addiction, relationship and sexual issues, depression/anxiety and loss, as well as dealing with anger and violence. I am a psychodynamic practitioner. This means that as a therapist I am interested in listening to you and trying to help you understand how past experiences, often from childhood, affect your life today and the way you view yourself.

Is online therapy a good option?
Therapy conducted online or over the phone 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.
What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
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.
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.
