I believe that we tend to access therapy when it’s no longer possible for us to travel alone on our journey, hidden from ourselves and others, stuck in familiar and/or unfamiliar patterns that can no longer contain us, and when the way in which we are relating (or not relating) to ourselves, others and the world around us, is no longer making us feel fully alive. Something tells us it's time to look inwards. Looking inwards can feel daunting but it is necessary in order to instigate meaningful and lasting changes ( both external and internal ).

Sometimes life can become overwhelming and every day can feel like a challenge. One can feel “stuck” in relationships, a career or with life in general. There can be moments where both personal and professional development feels obstructed and the joy of life is missing. Then one might need help to find a way through these difficulties. Psychotherapy is an opportunity to explore the difficulties in a confidential, non-judgmental and supportive space. In this exploration one can not only gain support and understanding, but also start noticing things about one's self that may never have been noticed.

It's entirely reasonable for us all, at some point, to be anxious and confused by life, challenged by relationships, family life and or the direction of our career. Life can be difficult, there's no denying that, you just don't have to suffer in silence. Really, the only qualification in seeking therapy is to be a normal human being. I could go on 'selling' the benefits, but ultimately I assure you, if you try, things will change, and quite possibly for the better.

Death brings up complicated feelings as you move into a life without a loved one. Do you feel lonely in your grief, unable to share your true feelings as you worry that you won't be understood, or it has been a long time and you feel like you should be over it? Are you finding it hard to sleep and concentrate at work or on the family? Are you worrying about how your kids are coping? Do you feel that you don't have the time to work through your grief? Are you wondering if all your worries and concerns are normal? Would you like to feel happy and find joy in your life again?

You may be struggling with overwhelming emotions and have various ways of coping, which are not helping. It might be because of a current relationship or difficult relationships in the past. You may have suffered childhood abuse or been bullied at school. Perhaps you are struggling to cope with work pressures and are experiencing stress and anxiety. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support and empower you in that journey.

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming and hard to handle. I provide a space to talk through the things that are making you feel anxious, sad, stressed or perhaps a bit lost. Setting aside time to focus on yourself and talk about the things that are causing you distress can really help to bring new perspectives and ease some of the anxieties that can hold you back from living in a happy and fulfilled way. I aim to work with you through some of these things to help bring clarity and insight, which in turn can help improve how you feel day to day and allow you to take charge of who you are and how you navigate the world.

In life we all go through challenging times, whether it be disappoints from people, struggles, confusion, feeling alone or being trapped with uncertainty of a better tomorrow. Though some have support to tackle the issues, others have to face it all alone. Sometimes you find that having a listening ear and the support with what you are going through matters. I am DBS checked and offer counselling services to - Adults, young people and older adults to overcome what they are going through as well as for them to seek the tools that will support them in the journey and post counselling.

I am an older woman with a rich and varied life experience - as a teacher, a mother, a fatherless child, and have a harsh inner critic. I have learned about death, loss and bereavement and about my inner critic. Learning about these aspects of my life brought about a new understanding of who I am. Learning about you will bring you a new understanding about who you are and how you became ‘you’. I will actively listen to you, ask questions which will help you express the person who is hiding and help you see yourself as unique and strong. My questions may sometimes be challenging but I will also use humour.

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.
