You might be hurting due to early childhood trauma that you have tried to keep hidden from yourself and those around you for some time now. It might have been difficult to share these feelings with family, friends or colleagues, maybe due to lack of confidentiality, being judged or not being understood. In this space, you have the opportunity to explore delicate issues rooted in the past that have remained unresolved and affecting the present. I am a fully qualified, registered and experienced Psychodynamic counsellor and Cognitive Behaviour Therapist. l provide a non-judgemental, safe, confidential and respectful space.

I am a Psychotherapist and 'training analyst' for students in training. I have 20+ years experience of working with anxiety, depression, loss, eating disorders and more. 1st session is FREE for 30 mins. I believe psychotherapy should be available and affordable to everyone. I use sliding scale charges, a quiet, private and confidential space to talk, to express your self. We can explore and uncover the complexity behind the issues, causing your difficulties, distress and unhappiness. We find meaning and understanding and work towards unveiling and promoting a self that is more confident, empowered, assertive and self authorising.

We all need help from time to time, and you shouldn't be embarrassed for asking for it. I am a down to earth and compassionate person, who understands what it is like to need a boost. In my years I have truly heard it all, and my biggest goal is to empower rather than judge my clients. One of my favourite quotes comes from Marisa Peer who explains that “to be happy you have to make peace with your past, love the present and feel so excited about the future”. No problem is too big to solve and I have witnessed counselling change the lives of so many people and I know I can help change yours too.

I see individual and couple clients with a wide range of issues. They include problems within relationships, parenting issues, bereavement, stress at work, low self-confidence and more. Often a client might feel a loss of hope and meaning in their life; they might have problems regulating their moods or coming to terms with aspects of themselves and decisions they have made. By coming into therapy, they seek to build a trusting relationship in which they open up, explore, let go of difficult emotions and complex thinking and beliefs.

I work with adults experiencing distress, whether its anxiety or depression. I believe that seeking support is normal for everyone at some point in their lives. We all go through experiences which create emotional overwhelm. I think my role is to create a safe space for the client in their time of need to help them, through the therapeutic conversation, to reduce their suffering by identifying difficult feelings, thought processes and understand how their relationships with others and themselves has contributed. The aim is to distance from the wounded inner critic and develop kindness to ourselves in order to find solutions!

People come to therapy for various reasons. Some people come to therapy because they are feeling low, and experienced a traumatic episode, whilst others come to therapy for the enriching experience that it is. Therapy is not limited to poor mental health. It is an opportunity to get to know yourself, and why specific scenarios will cause you to behave in the manner that you do. It is time for you, and only you. Once a week, you are invited to flee from distractions, pressures and demands of the external world for an exploratory experience of your inner world.

I believe listening empathetically to your specific individual experiences and thoughts, enables a deeper understanding of why you may be feeling depressed, anxious, lonely and lack direction or purpose in your life. If you have experienced the trauma of abuse or neglect, you may be feeling isolated from others and carry a sense of shame about who you are. I have fifteen years of experience creating individualised approaches centred around the individual needs of people who are experiencing psychological difficulties.

I am passionate about helping people who are going through rough patches in life because of a sudden change, social isolation, a difficult relationship or a loss. In these moments people's confidence and self-esteem get affected and the way they see themselves and the world can change dramatically and their mental health is affected. Some have a harsh voice telling them that they are a failure; others may feel unloved or so low that it is hard to do anything or their anxiety is almost paralysing. I believe that everyone has the right to feel happy, secure, confident, satisfied.

I support people to deepen their understanding and acceptance of themselves in a way that honours who they are as a person.To truly understand where you’re coming from, it’s important for me to learn about who you are and understand your current issues in the context of past experiences and how you have been impacted by cultural, societal or familial pressures. I’m interested in engaging people as their true selves and working together to create a safe, authentic and vulnerable connection.

It is easy to find a counsellor but perhaps more difficult to know if you have found the right one for you? Will you feel safe and comfortable? Life events and experiences can be distressing, feel overwhelming and sharing these problems can feel daunting and anxiety provoking. I am an accredited, experienced psychodynamically trained psychotherapist/counsellor with some additional CBT training, that could offer you a confidential and non judgemental setting where we can work through any personal or relationship issues. You may be considering a short term focused therapy or some longer term psychoanalytic therapy?

The reasons that people give group psychotherapy a try are uniquely subjective. Most of the time this wish to try something new involves some type of recognition. Noticing something that feels tangled, elusive, and a struggle. Group psychotherapy has the exciting potential to take that initial recognition and develop it into understanding. In group psychotherapy you come to know yourself in ways that may have eluded you before. Group psychotherapy can help with figuring out options for change and hope for the future.

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.
