Hi my name is Pauline and I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist (full member of BSCH) and Counsellor (registered member of BACP) specialising in Addictions and the issues related to the addiction and the probable cause. When we are at the stage where we are googling Counsellors then this is usually because we are hoping to get the right person we will gain rapport with. The right Counsellor will allow us to open up completely about issues that we have been bottling up inside us for whatever reason. We want to be able to talk freely and easily without being judged by that comment or look that straight away makes us close up and squash those unwanted feelings and thoughts back down into their box again because, maybe, we feel ashamed and guilty. We want the issue to be dealt with in a non judgemental manner. We want that someone who will enable us to feel that we are OK. That it's not all our fault and will help us find a solution.

When life feels out of focus it's good to talk. My name's Carolyne and I'm a trained integrative counsellor. I can support you to restore your self-confidence, work through your issues and help you recognise you matter too! Everyone’s unique as are our experiences. Something that is overwhelming or difficult to process for you may not be the same for those around you and that’s ok. I’m here to help you unpick what is going on for you in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment. So, rather than ignoring the elephant in the room, lets invite it in and talk.

Counselling provides a safe and confidential space in which you can explore whatever is troubling you. Our first meeting will help me to make an initial assessment of your situation and will also give you an opportunity to gain a sense of whether you feel comfortable with me in order for us to work together. This session will additionally give you an opportunity to explore what you would like to gain from counselling and give us a chance to establish whether you would like to commit to a short-term or potentially an open-ended basis. This will ultimately be your decision and can naturally change over the course of therapy.

Maybe your sex life or life, in general, isn't going how you would like it, preventing you from reaching your full potential. This may have plagued you for a while, and you want it to stop.

Do you feel the need to talk to someone? maybe you feel alone and helpless to deal with life right now. I offer a non-judgemental, confidential space, where you can talk about whatever it is that’s brought you to therapy. I am ready to accept you unconditionally and provide you with a safe space to express yourself. A natural connection will begin to grow between us once we feel comfortable together and this will be nurtured. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the most important part of therapy and once it is in place you will begin to grow as a person, to accept yourself and the difficulties you face.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

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.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

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.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
