I am a qualified Psychodynamic counsellor. My training and my personal experience have led me to believe humans are connected with and influenced by their past, cultures, and families. By forming a safe and trusting relationship in therapy, we can see how past and existing connections unknowingly impact you and gain a deeper insight into your problems and a greater awareness of your own self and your way of relating. Discovering self can be scary and I strive to go along with you at your own pace. Being a woman and a therapist with an ethnic minority background have deepened my understanding of isolation and marginalisation.

I believe that psychotherapy is more of an art form than a science, however, my degree is in social science and as such the theories and concepts used in forensic and social psychology influence my practice.

Do you have entrenched habits of thinking or behaving that have become problematical or seem to be holding you back? Therapy provides a containing space in which you can think freely about the issues that affect your life and relationships. I understand it can be hard to make the first step: to find the hope that someone quite new to you could help. These are just some of the situations where therapy can help you: Feeling anxious or depressed; Deciding it’s the right time to think about something that you haven’t been able to face before; Feeling that you are repeating patterns in relationships and life choices.

Maybe you feel lost in life, or unable to achieve certain desires. It can be hard to sort through difficult feelings or thoughts. We can often feel a sense of shame in our experiences, but I am here to express that you are not alone.

People can come to therapy for all sorts of reasons: they might be struggling at work or feeling dissatisfied in a relationship or coming to terms with a traumatic childhood. They might need a different approach depending on their goals - so a more structured, goal based intervention might be suitable for someone who wants to be more effective in the workplace. The person affected by a traumatic past might want to develop a stronger abiity to self-soothe - this could be through guided imagery, relaxation, breathing or just through experiencing the therapeutic relationship as safe and accepting.

Hello and Welcome, Life has indeed become complex. Many of us are now struggling with our mental health in ways that are no longer manageable. Our past and present hurts, our unprocessed feelings have risen to the surface. We find ourselves thinking, feeling and acting in ways that do not reflect who we want to be. Some of us have Grief, Trauma or Addiction that we just can’t seem to work through. As a Senior Accredited Psychotherapist with a Master Degree and EMDR qualified, I've seen thousands come through my door, with various presenting issues and undergo genuine transformation, healing and leave with hope for the future.

Hello, I'm Beth. Starting therapy can feel daunting, but it also offers the opportunity for an enriching and even transformative experience that connects you back to purpose and joy! Perhaps you feel clear about what you want to work on in therapy, or maybe you just know you're not feeling good and life's a struggle. It may be that you've noticed a part of you is very unkind to yourself, or you're feeling overwhelmed by emotions or stress. Maybe past events keep repeating in your mind, or you're struggling with chronic pain or fatigue. As the struggles go on, you notice you have less energy to give to the things and people you love.

People seek therapy for different reasons, life issues, trauma due to mental or physical events, loss of a loved one, or a breakdown of a relationship. Choosing therapy can be a route to discover better ways of managing moments of anxiety or depression. As well as working with individuals, I am experienced at working with couples who are struggling to stay together or trying to part amicably. I also work with couples and individuals who experience issues on becoming parents (fertility/adoption) or with those who find it difficult to make the decision to parent because of their own past experiences.

There are times when even the strongest people need help and support to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Overwhelming emotions and thoughts can feel like they take over and impact our wellbeing and relationships. We can’t get “rid” of emotions or symptoms; however, we can learn to better manage them and change the dissatisfying aspects of lives in productive, healthy ways. Have you found it difficult to make changes, heal or find meaning on your own? Maybe you experience symptoms of anxiety, negative self-talk stress, overthinking, ruminating, Or feeling stuck, empty? If not now, when ?

As a holistic, trauma-informed counsellor and healer, I am privileged to work with humans from very different walks of life, circumstances and ages. Some of the most common struggles people come to me with are related to the fields of relationships, boundaries, self-acceptance, self-trust, authentic self-expression and navigating difficult emotional states, like anxiety, loneliness, confusion, grief and overwhelm. I love supporting people in these areas. It brings me a lot of joy seeing my clients explore the previously scary terrains, discover their strength and develop a loving relationship with different aspects of themselves.

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.
