Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship, or sexuality issues? Do you feel stuck and lacking support? Do you feel overwhelmed by difficult situations or struggling with low self-esteem? Are you going through a life transition and finding it difficult to cope? Many of us may face hardships in life at some point and such times can be stressful, frightening, and lonely. Seeking help or support is not always easy. Talking to friends and family may be difficult, if not impossible as we may experience rejection, shame, guilt when we are most vulnerable.

With all the complex challenges of modern life, anxiety and depression are on the increase. Seeing a psychotherapist/counsellor can provide a calm, safe space where you can find the support you need. Whether you are seeking short term counselling, or longer term psychotherapy, together we can explore whatever may be troubling you. Perhaps you are in need of a sympathetic person to talk to, someone who will listen without judgement to any difficulties you are experiencing in your life or relationships. You may be suffering from low self-esteem, or unexplained panic attacks. I will work with you in the way that suits you best.

Anxiety, depression, conflict with others, workplace issues and life events can stop us from feeling good about ourselves and achieving our goals. If you’re feeling stuck, you’re not alone.

Thank you for looking at my profile. You may have experienced an event or relationship which has left you feeling distressed, anxious, lost, or any number of feelings that can seem overwhelming or unmanageable. You may be feeling some of these things but have no idea where they have come from. Perhaps you are feeling held back by negative or self-critical thoughts and as a result feel unable to do the things you want to. You may have a sense of having lost control over your own life or you might just feel really stuck.

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.
