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.

At some time or another, we all need additional help in dealing with the difficulties that life can bring. Modern, fast-paced living is often overwhelming and so making choices that are beneficial for us becomes more challenging. We often find ourselves taking decisions that move us away from who we truly are and the life we want to lead. Through therapy we can explore what has brought you to where you are now, what is no longer working for you and how to facilitate a shift towards a preferred present and future.

Therapy is a safe space to explore some of the confusing or difficult thoughts and feelings that arise throughout life's challenging phases. Major life transitions, relationship issues, bereavements, self-esteem, low mood or anxiety - these are all themes that are worthwhile addressing in therapy. Additionally therapy can be an investment into understanding yourself further; what causes you to think and act in certain ways as this is the gateway to facilitating meaningful and long-lasting change.

Together we can explore what's going on, at a pace that's right for you. I can support you to come to terms with who you are and what's happened in your life, so you can become who you want to be.

I offer short- and long-term adult psychodynamic psychotherapy and counselling. I aim to create a non-judgemental and collaborative relationship that facilitates self-understanding. Psychotherapy is a way for us to think together about your past and its impact on your present thoughts and actions. By supporting you to speak freely, and by listening, I can help you better understand and work through your experiences, transforming their effects. Psychotherapy should be a challenging but rewarding process where you gain greater agency and satisfaction in your life.

Hello and Welcome, Life has indeed become complex. Many of us are now struggling with our mental health in ways that are no longer manageable. Our past and present hurts, our unprocessed feelings have risen to the surface. We find ourselves thinking, feeling and acting in ways that do not reflect who we want to be. Some of us have Grief, Trauma or Addiction that we just can’t seem to work through. As a Senior Accredited Psychotherapist with a Master Degree and EMDR qualified, I've seen thousands come through my door, with various presenting issues and undergo genuine transformation, healing and leave with hope for the future.

Modern life in a big city like London can be exciting but also unsettling at times. It is easy to sometimes feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, alone and at loss of where to start. Therapy can help in times of uncertainty. By exploring your thoughts and feelings from both past and present, links can be made to increase your understanding and thereby helping you moving forward. Increased self knowledge and insight can be crucial in forming close and authentic relationships with others, often bringing higher self esteem as a result. Therapy can be a good support and give you hope when you are going through a difficult time.

Perhaps your relationships feel like hard work, or you're struggling with anxiety or depression. Maybe you feel in the grip of trauma or abuse, or you're feeling stuck. Or do you simply feel that something’s not right? It may be difficult to talk about these things with those closest to you, whereas therapy can be a place removed from your everyday life to reflect and bring about the change you are seeking. Whatever's troubling you, I provide a confidential, non-judgmental space where we can navigate things together. My aim is for us to develop understandings, meanings and solutions, so you can move beyond your difficulties.

You may have come across my page as you're struggling... I firmly believe that everyone can go through periods where things seem insurmountable. It may be that life has become difficult only very recently or that you've realised you have been struggling to cope over the longer term. Nevertheless, it is often the very meanings we give to these situations that has caused us problems or feelings of distress. We may have learnt unhelpful ways of coping with distressing feelings, which in the longer term seem to maintain our distress. I offer a warm, safe and affirming space where you can make sense of your difficulties.

Throughout my career as a psychologist, I always believed that every individual needs a space. A space where we can talk without being judged, a space where we can share our perspective and an atmosphere where your thoughts would be respected. I would like to provide that space, even one where you just want to share. It is the space where trust is built mutually between the patient and the therapist from the very first session. I believe that therapy is the space where individuals can actualize their potential. I use an eclectic approach as I believe that therapy is tailored to the individual’s needs.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in London are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in London then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in London, or Child Psychologists in London.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like London psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in London specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
