You may be experiencing feelings which are leaving you distressed and confused. You may be feeling anxious or alone - unsure of where to turn or who can be there beside you. Coming for counselling may initially feel daunting, however it is a courageous step forward in enabling a time of self reflection. It is important that you feel that the space I offer is a space where you can speak openly and freely, and that the warmth, empathy and non-judgemental space will enable you to feel listened to in a unique way where you feel able to express your emotions, empowering you to understand any negative feelings you may be experiencing.

Psychotherapist, MA, MBACP
Most of the people I work with have found themselves stuck in difficult patterns of feeling, thought and behavior that they find to be out of their control, preventing them from fully enjoying their lives. We use words like 'anxiety' and 'depression' to describe these painfully repetitive experiences that we feel we cannot escape on our own. As a therapist I aim to help introduce a sense of freedom and control over one’s own life. First and foremost, this is accomplished by providing a space to speak about oneself in a context of confidential, compassionate understanding, where moral judgments have no place.

Psychotherapist, MA, HCPC-Art Therap.
I am a HCPC and BAAT registered Art Psychotherapist. Art Psychotherapy integrates speaking psychotherapy with expression through the art materials. This allows to communicate unconscious information and gives space for whatever might feel difficult to be communicated verbally, to resurface. I use a psychodynamic approach, which focuses on building a trusting client-therapist relationship to process difficult experiences. I facilitate a safe space, where we seek the root of unexplained behaviours and patterns.

Psychotherapist, MSc, CPsychol
Hi, I am Valentina :) my therapeutic style is creative, evolving from my psychoanalytic training while also considering the importance of finding balance in the emotional, spiritual, and physical realms. I focus on your uniqueness, promoting a sense of safety, connection, hope, and a gentle reminder of your intrinsic power to heal. Freud said that 'psychoanalysis is a cure by love'. I believe that humans can be helped by fostering heart-to-heart connections by tuning into one's emotional needs. Your psychological state holds the key to what is preventing you from being free and connected, and how to get it.

I have worked with people from a wide range of backgrounds from business professionals to students to people in the public eye. What is universal is the need to feel heard and understood, to have a confidential therapeutic space as well as a hope for meaningful change through therapy. The reasons people seek help are varied. At times, life situations can trigger distress (perhaps a traumatic event, difficulties conceiving, the end of a relationship, the loss of a loved one, unemployment, becoming an expat, or transitioning into retirement). At other times, distress can arise seemingly out of the blue.

Right now, life is supposedly back to 'normal', however life still feels unmanageable, and those never-ending obstacles has now become more intense. You may be feeling overwhelmed with all the pressures at work, whilst trying to juggle the constant demands of being a parent. Let's not forget about the strain this may be putting on your relationships with others, and no one truly understands that things are day by day spiralling out of control for you
Counsellor, MA, UKCP Trainee

I work with dedicated, highly-sensitive professionals who are looking to make sense of their childhood trauma and life experiences. I will journey with you to the depths of your heart and bear witness to what might be there. I'm interested in looking at the shadow (and, yes, we all have one!) and bringing it into the light. You are a high-achiever, hard worker and dedicated to your job/friends/family and usually put other first. You might be experiencing burn out because of this and need to reconnect with your mind and your body. Or you describe yourself as a "people pleaser" or find it hard to put yourself first.

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.
