I specialise with the LGBT+ community, including their family and friends. I can offer a non-judgemental, gentle, accepting confidential space for you to share your issues and concerns, knowing you will not be rejected or discriminated against. I have lived experience of transgender identities, as my son is transgender . I have witnessed the high mental health conditions, suicidal ideation, including self-harm, and loss faced by LGBT+ individuals that I have counselled, along with the hurdles my son has encountered during his transition. I would like to walk with you along your pathway, and consider myself privileged to do so.

I have experience of supporting people with many issues, including; anxiety, depression, postnatal depression, OCD, relationship difficulties, sexuality, identity, gender dysphoria , self esteem, self harm, abuse, trauma, bereavement and loss.
You may be reading this as you’re finding things in life difficult at the moment. You may feel as though you’re struggling with thoughts or certain circumstances, maybe you can’t pin point what you’re going through; you just know you need some support. I offer you a safe and non judgmental space to explore what is happening for you, and in turn, help you to understand why you’re feeling the way you are. I personalise my work with you and provide tools to support you to work through the difficulties you are experiencing. You may be searching for the right counsellor, or you may be the parent/carer of a young person who needs support.

My particular areas of experience are in working with depression (including clinical, OCD, post-natal), survivors of sexual abuse, trauma, transgender issues, sexuality and relationship problems, addictions, loss and major life changes.
As an empathic therapist, I am comfortable working both with people in crisis or with longer term problems. Perhaps you feel it is time to look at your life in depth and to understand yourself better. Or you may simply wish to access support and to unburden your worries, in confidence. I am particularly interested in working with complex cases and those looking to question taboos. I have worked for nearly twenty years with individuals fostering a happier, healthier mindset and for six years in a solely psychotherapeutic capacity.  I work in university counselling and previously as a psychotherapist in the NHS as well as privately.

I work with a range of issues including: anxiety, addiction, depression, chemsex, gender identity, gender dysphoria and transitioning, pain and chronic illness, psychosexual issues, forensics/sexual offending, sexuality and sexual identity, suicidality and self-harm.
I’m interested in what works. For you. So I take a pluralistic, integrative approach and don’t limit myself to one particular way of working. Whether you’re seeing me for counselling, schema-based therapy or psychosexual therapy, I'll tailor my approach to suit your needs. And it’s the relationship between you and I which will be central to the work. Because I’m not a friend, colleague or family member, you can think the unthinkable and speak the unspeakable in a judgement-free space. You can rely on me to be honest with you, and bring into your awareness your blind spots, and things on the edge of your awareness you might missing.

I offer counselling to people who are in some sort of transition in their lives. Often people come to me when they're feeling stuck, isolated or low. I often work with people in their twenties, thirties and forties who are facing some sort of mid-life transition. You might be weighing up what is important to you, and how to take the next steps in your life. I work with people who are often from marginalised groups, for example, LGBTQ+ people and/or people from Black and ethnic minorities. You might want to find out a way to live your life that feels authentic and unblock energy to achieve your goals.

Albion Psychotherapy By Barbara Ocello
Psychologist, MSc, HCPC - Couns. Psych.
Verified
I am a psychologist and Jungian psychotherapist offering therapy to individuals and couples of any kind (romantic relationships, business partners, parents and adult children, in-laws etc). If you are thinking about therapy, it is probably because you're struggling; it's painful, and change feels necessary and yet very difficult. You've tried to fix things, but nothing has worked, or it's not worked for long. You might be feeling at the mercy of your inner states, or reacting in a way you don’t like. Perhaps you feel at war with life, or work, or other people, or even your own self.

Right now you may feel desperate, lost, empty, stressed, anxious or fed up. Whatever difficulty has prompted you to seek Counselling does not define who are you are and the journey you want to take in life. Together we will explore your feelings of being stuck, alone or in darkness as you strengthen your own resources to create greater wellbeing, resilience and satisfaction. No person is the same or brings identical experiences but frequent issues I work with include depression, anxiety, loss & bereavement, trauma, suicidal thoughts, work or school stress and relationship tensions. I work with clients aged 13+ and with Couples.

Hello, my name is Michelle, As a counsellor and psychotherapist, I am all too aware of just how daunting taking that initial step towards counselling can be. The mere fact that you are reading this now means you are just a phone call away from putting that right. While we sometimes turn to a friend or family member in our hour of need, it is when the problem lies with our nearest and dearest that we should consult with a professional.

Do you feel like you live in a world that doesn’t accept who you are? A dear friend of mine once summed up this feeling beautifully: “Being LGBTIQ+ is not my issue, it’s living in a world where others take issue with me being LGBTIQ+”. When we live in a society that does not see or respect our difference we internalize a lot of messages and beliefs about who we should, or should not, be. Trying to shape ourselves into an image that doesn’t fit isn’t just exhausting - it’s traumatizing! Hi, my name is Gavin and I identify as a gender non-conforming Queer person.

Transgender Counsellors
We should make clear that not all the counsellors listed here are transgender themselves. Rather, they specialise in helping with aspects of being transgender in London and transgender identity. They help with trans life and trans relationships.

If you're transgender or are looking for help with transgender issues in London or for a London transgender counsellor these professionals provide transgender counselling and transgender friendly care.

Transgender people in London may meet the criteria for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria (historically called gender identity disorder (GID)) "only if being transgender causes distress or disability." This distress is referred to as gender dysphoria.

The professionals listed here include transgender friendly therapists in London, transgender friendly counsellors in London, transgender friendly psychologists, and transgender friendly therapists.

Counselling for transgender issues in London can help those living a transgendered life or transgender relationship; or family members coming to understand the life of their transgender child or sibling.
