Are you struggling to communicate with your partner? Feel like your partner doesn't understand you? Do you wish you could turn the clock back to happier times in your relationship? Many couples face difficulties in their relationship at some time or other, and this can often be a stressful experience, leaving one or both partners feeling hurt, lonely or rejected. Relationship counselling can help you re-connect with each other, reduce conflict in the relationship, and regain the closeness and intimacy you once had.

Are you going through a difficult period in your life and/or feel that you would like to develop a better understanding about yourself in order to overcome personal challenges? I offer you a confidential space of trust, empathy & respect, where you can bring issues that concern you, unlock unhelpful patterns, find relief & be empowered. Difficult periods may include life-changing circumstances, change of jobs, separation, family issues, going through loss or coping with illness. Sometimes feelings of anger, sadness, fear, demotivation may appear without reason. The exploration of these in therapy may help & enable positive change.

As a family and couples psychotherapist I believe that relationships, both past, present and future, are important resources for healing psychological difficulties and improving emotional health. I work with both individuals, couples and families to help people think through their connections and help to improve their lives. Using a range of systemic approaches, including attachment, narrative and solution focused ideas, I aim to offer clients a different way of looking at their problems, and support them to create new ways of communicating and create meaning within their relationships.

The journey through problems and challenges is often a painful one but I will always be there to help you find understanding.

I have worked as a psychotherapist for over 25 years in the NHS, voluntary sector and privately. I trained as a Freudian psychoanalyst having worked in the mental health charity sector for some years. I like to work with a range of people, usually on a once weekly or more frequent basis. I work with people who are seeking to understand themselves better - their relationships with others as well as with themselves. I hope that I can help them make sense of difficulties or challenges in their lives in order to live more fully and creatively.

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.

Hello, I’m Chris, a qualified and experienced therapist. The decision to seek therapy often comes at a point in life when you’re wanting to create change. I am trained in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, which underpins my theoretical framework, but I also draw on some techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and the Dual Process Model when working with bereavement. Psychotherapy is about exploring your thoughts and feelings and unhelpful patterns of behaviour that gives life to your internal world. Working in a psychodynamic way means taking a closer look at your childhood relationships and experiences as these serve as a…

My initial interest in Existential therapy was informed by my personal and professional experiences. Throughout the years I have explored diverse ways of supporting my clients, looking to improve their emotional and spiritual balance. Existential therapy encapsulates all my core beliefs about the therapeutic process and the powerful therapeutic connection between psychology and philosophy. It is anchored in the lived experiences (not their theoretical representation) and their relational context. It relates to human existence and predicaments, our choices and responsibilities, meaning and purpose, freedom and limitations.

Having mental health needs is a challenge for anybody. Unfortunately, more and more individuals are suffering from mental ill health despite various programmes and access to psychological therapies. Most common problems I have seen and dealt with are anxiety and depression. Anxiety forms the basis of many mental disorders. My clients approach me to help them deal with their anxiety and low mood as it has become so debilitating they they are not able to function well in the society and they struggle to carry out their day to day tasks.

Sometimes things in life can start to seem overwhelming; the useful strategies of the past may not be as helpful as they used to; we can find ourselves lost and unsure. This can often lead to added, despair, anxiety, and self-criticism. It can often seem hard to see a way out or to ask for help. You may need someone to listen without judgement and provide insights into understanding patterns in your life. You may also desire strategies to change your actions and the way that you think about things. The way to a fulfilling and valued life is available without a life-long commitment to therapy.

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.
