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.

Life can be tough and it can sometimes be difficult to know where to turn to. I offer a warm and confidential environment to talk and express how you feel. I will support you with challenges you are facing and help you to explore the aspects of your life that you would like to look into to help you move forward. I work in a way that is entirely client focused and am friendly and approachable. As an Integrative Counsellor I use a range of therapeutic approaches depending on you and what you would like counselling for.

Maybe your life isn't going the way you would like it which is preventing you reaching your full potential. This may have have been going on for a while and you want it to stop. I can help.

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.

Hello, my name is Alison and I am a qualified, BACP registered Counsellor. My approach is integrative which means I am trained in several theories so that I can tailor my work with you specifically to your needs. I work with children (5+), teens, and adults and adapt my work to the individual based on age and issues that you would like to work with me on with you. My work with children is generally play-based and creative but I will happily bring creativity into sessions with teens and adults.

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.

Life can be difficult at times, with highs and lows, as well as times where we feel stuck, unsure of our feelings or why we are feeling a certain way. Feeling low in mood and depressed, or anxious and worried may be new to you, or it may be a problem you feel you have always experienced. Either way, I would like to support you through your journey by helping you learn how to understand your difficulties, as well as support you in making changes and reaching your goals.

Are you finding your emotions overwhelming? Are you fed up with feeling like you are not good enough? Maybe you have trouble speaking up for yourself and feel like you don’t have control over your life. We all go through ups and downs in life but sometimes we feel like we are stuck in a rut. Sometimes a series of events take their toll, or a life event will trigger those feelings of vulnerability. ​ I can work with you to help you get back on a path where you feel more comfortable with who you are, and you no longer feel lost.

Hello there, I understand that this can be an apprehensive place to start, but I would like to offer you a warm welcoming, safe, supportive, and non - judgmental space where you can be heard, reflecting and working together any underlying issues or any difficulties that may have affected you. I am a qualified Integrative counsellor, which means that I use different therapeutic approaches to support your needs. Counselling allows me to put myself "in your shoes", understand the way that it is affecting you, then by working together we can achieve those barriers to fulfil our lives to the fullest.

You’re an expat who is feeling stuck and overwhelmed, like you’re lacking a sense of purpose and direction. Moving abroad either for work or studies is harder than you anticipated? You thought this transition would be smooth, but instead, anxiety, stress, worries, and loneliness holding you back. Struggling to adapt to the culture, wondering if you should stay or return home? It doesn’t have to be this way. Together we can explore your needs, likes and dislikes, question old beliefs, learn and practice new skills. I can give you the tools you need to get through the hard times of expat life, feel confident and live with less stress.

The most important thing I can do for you is to help you understand yourself better, to know why you do the things you do and find certain situations difficult. I work with people who want to understand why they can't assert themselves, find enjoyment in life, make friends, recover from bereavement or the end of a relationship, why they get so angry, have addictions, obsessions and intrusive thoughts or why they don't know what to do about a partner who is controllling or abusive. Alternatively, I can offer EMDR, which is a treatment for trauma and other experiences from the recent or distant past which have adversely affected you.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Sidcup 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 Sidcup 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 Sidcup, or Child Psychologists in Sidcup.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Sidcup 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 Sidcup 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.
