Hello, my name is Andrew and I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist based in South West London. Usually working on an open-ended basis, I provide a safe and accepting environment where clients can look to find a deeper understanding of themselves, exploring areas where they may feel stuck, uncover repeating patterns in their relationships or confront and overcome negative behaviours, thoughts and feelings that may be getting in the way of them achieving a happier, more contented life.
Stephen James Linnane
I works as an integrative counsellor, encompasses humanistic, and Psychodynamic therapy. This simply means I put the client needs at the centre of the work together, by being empathetic, genuine, and non-judgemental, with what the client brings. Within this approach, sometimes I help a client explore past events, as this can shape there current view of the world, or created a feeling of stuck-ness in ones life. I has been able to help a number of clients overcome, or live-through difficulties.
Counsellor, UKCP Trainee
If you are feeling low, anxious or stuck and unable to change things yourself, or repeating difficult or destructive patterns of behaviour, working with and talking with someone not involved in your life can really help. If you are struggling to cope with how life is at the moment or with something from the past, then getting support from me is the first step to feeling supported and heard and looking at how we can work together to help you make changes in behaviour, relationships, communication and ways of thinking and processing what you are facing. Your emotional and mental well-being matters and you don't have to struggle alone.

There are many different reasons why people experience emotional challenge, upset or dissatisfaction. We can become overwhelmed by situations that are out of our control, end up being trapped in familiar but unproductive patterns/unsatisfying relationships, or simply reach a point in life when things are not feeling quite alright. Whether you are faced with an emotional storm or a sense of being stuck, there are ways to move forward. I can help you get to know yourself better, which will guide you in making meaningful choices in your life long after our work has ended.

Counsellor, MA, MBACP
Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious, maybe depressed, frustrated or under pressure? Is the current pandemic time additionally affecting you? You may not understand why you’ve been feeling the way you feel. You might be lonely, misunderstood and unable to find any solace or solution to your difficulties. You probably know you would benefit from professional help and talking about and explore aspects of your live that may be causing you difficulty will be helpful. Whether you're going through a significant life change or are facing a challenging situation at work or personal life, therapy can help you to overcome those difficulties.
Henrietta Rose Whitfield
Counsellor, DCounsPsych, MBACP
Life and relationships are not easy to navigate, and if you’re experiencing anxiety and depression, or going through difficult times, things can feel overwhelming. I understand how difficulties cause you to lose your sense of control, your overall wellbeing and even your sense of who you are. These are normal experiences, but if you’re struggling to feel a basic sense of joy about being you, or if your relationships are causing you more pain than pleasure, then it might be time to seek help. It can be difficult to imagine how talking therapy can help, but together we can work towards symptomatic relief and the freedom to be youself.
Hello and welcome. I am an experienced and accredited psychodynamic psychotherapist having worked in both organisations and private practice. I have experience of working with adults across all age groups, from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. Working together and at your pace, I offer a professional, confidential, non-judgemental, safe space for you to talk about what is troubling you, where you feel heard, and where we can explore your experiences and begin the process of opening up possibilities for lasting change.

What if you could be kinder to yourself? What if you could experience less anxiety and low mood? What if you could be supported in healing from past traumas? What if you could become more assertive and set healthy boundaries? Perhaps you don’t know what’s wrong but you’re feeling unsettled, sad, anxious, confused, or stressed. You might have put on a happy mask for too long and you’re exhausted. I invite you to imagine how things could be different and, with this hope - no matter how small the hope might be-, I invite you to get in touch with me.
I believe that the 3 most common reasons leading people to seek therapy are Anger, Sadness & Belief System. This belief system could be one you were taught by somebody else or one you have created that is not serving you, for example feeling that you are not enough or that you are unloveable. I offer safety and support with the unbearable. I provide guidance in your discovery and unpacking of baggage. I use creative methods: art, body work, play therapy and nature.
I work with genuine care, empathy and am non- judgemental. I am very passionate about helping and offer a warm and nurturing space for you to explore your presenting issues which you may be finding challenging and distressing.

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.
