Issues, needs, goals - what do you want and why do you want it? Are you feeling numb, or confused, experiencing insomnia, disturbed sleep, distressing dreams, or distressing thoughts? Are you suffering from physical complaints - migraines, back and neck pain, IBS, prolonged and ongoing pain, skin problems? Do you have feelings of dread, loneliness, emptiness, or a general dissatisfaction with yourself or your life? Seeking a different path? Entering into counselling takes courage and commitment to yourself, for yourself. Trust in your intuition to find a counsellor you can bond with. I will walk beside as you journey and explore.

Life can be tough sometimes and we can easily find ourselves stuck in cycles of unhelpful thinking or behaving. My aim is to help you to become unstuck and access a healthier, happier version of yourself. You may not know exactly how or why things aren't working, so an initial assessment can help us to figure this out together. I believe that we all possess the knowledge and resources to address our problems - I see my role as helping you to unlock this knowledge, access these skills, and acquire some additional tools along the way.

I focus on helping clients become empowered through self-awareness. Sometimes we need assistance to discover hidden parts of ourselves. We may want guidance to work out the underlying causes of the issues we are struggling with and to understand the meaning we give to our life events. I will assist you in exploring the motives behind behaviours, unhelpful thought patterns, and overwhelming feelings. Who would you be without the thoughts that upset you? Who would you be if you could feel free from the emotions and situations that weigh you down?

Hello, I’m Chris, a qualified and experienced, registered BACP psychotherapist and counsellor. The decision to seek therapy often comes at a point in life when you’re wanting to create change. I understand how daunting it can be to reach out and make contact, which is why I offer a space that is non-judgemental, interactive, and confidential. It’s a space for you to discuss whatever is on you mind. I am trained in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, which underpins my theoretical framework. Together, we would work like explorers, talking through your thoughts and feelings, looking at behaviour patterns…

Hello, my name is Jodie. I have over 15 years experience working within the NHS and charity sectors. I specialise in work with adults and young people and really work hard to ensure each of my clients is offered thoughtful and individualised support. Within the NHS, I have worked in a number of settings which has allowed me to work with anxiety disorders and depression, trauma, psychosis, bipolar disorder, personality disorders and relationship difficulties across the life-span. Life can be hard and I believe that everyone could benefit from therapy at a number of points in their life, not just at the point of mental health crisis.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in London?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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.
