If you are experiencing anxiety and depression whether it is due to events in your life or if you simply don't know why you are feeling like this, it can be very difficult to reach down within yourself and seek out your own resources to manage these feelings. Imagine being able to manage your own anxiety or depression in a way that gives you more control over these emotions rather than them having control over you, how liberating that would be. I feel that everyone has the power to do this but struggle to find their own resources for this. Taking that step in reaching out for counselling could be your first step towards this.

It takes tremendous strength and courage to reach out and finally say - something's not working. It can be easy to put aside our doubts, worries, traumas and behaviours, and let our busy lives take the lead. Yet as you know, these feelings don't just disappear, and one day something builds up within us that makes us say - 'ENOUGH, I need to deal with this.' Naturally, our first step is to reach out to friends, family, or colleagues, and although we respect their opinions, do we truly allow ourselves to be vulnerable within these relationships?

Life doesn't get any easier does it? Juggling work, relationships and family can be stressful and confusing, leaving us feeling emotionally drained. Sometimes the harder we work to please others, the tougher we are on ourselves. This can make us feel less than good enough. Deeper feelings of anxiety, sadness and anger can be painful and scary, so we become very good at burying them until they build up and overwhelm us. If you are experiencing feelings that are hard to manage I can help you.

Hi I am person centred counsellor, this means I accept and support you to explore ways to help you overcome any uncomfortable or traumatic emotions you may be experiencing. Sometimes we have experiences in life that can be overwhelming or we just can’t make sense of the events that may have happened to us. Many people may need answers from others and this may never happen, therefore exploring these questions within in a safe place can allow us to have acceptance to help start the healing process and give us back a sense of empowerment.

Life can be challenging and overwhelming at times, making us feel lonely, sad, anxious and stressed. Our thoughts can become unclear, tangled up and sometimes we just cannot stop overthinking. We can even isolate ourselves and feel like there is no way out. Counselling can be a safe and non-judgmental form of relating that might bring a positive change, more clarity and a deeper understanding of our feelings, thoughts and the ways we behave.

Hi, I'm Linda. Taking the first step toward positive change can feel hard at times; Not knowing where to turn can leave you feeling anxious and alone. Climbing the mountain feels an impossible task. But, you've already found the courage and strength to start the process. Navigating our way through life's ups and downs can feel stressful and confusing. The effect on our anxiety levels can impact how we manage our everyday lives. I understand because I too have navigated some difficult paths along the way. Talking things through can help you find direction, reduce anxiety and low mood, and helps us view things with a renewed mindset.

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.
