Counselling offers support and help for a variety of issues. There may be events from your past or childhood you would like to understand and discuss with support from a counsellor. Perhaps you are feeling dissatisfied or unhappy in your work life, or family life and could use some guidance and a different perspective to help you find what the root issue may be. You may have experienced a life changing event; such as divorce, child birth, becoming a parent, or losing a loved one. Whatever is making life feel difficult, counselling can offer a space to feel heard, understood and help you find the courage you need to move forward.

I am a BACP Accredited Person-Centred Practitioner and Supervisor with more than 20 years experience and 20,000 hours of clinical practice. When we are thinking about accessing counselling therapy, it can be tricky to know how to proceed especially if we have had a poor prior experience or if this is a new venture. Practitioners need to be mindful that each person is an individual snd need to feel valued as such if they are to find - through therapy - what it is they would like to achieve for themselves. It can be difficult to know what we may want from this process but, often having such a want is enough to spur us on.

People come to counselling for many different reasons. Usually, they've tried to deal with their issues and problems by themselves and managed to get by or cope. Sometimes, these burdens feel too much to bear and what used to work no longer does. If you are feeling stuck, powerless, and exhausted maybe counselling can help. "You can not heal what has not been revealed" as the saying goes - so being in an environment where you can express your thoughts and feelings without humiliation, shame, or guilt is the first step in ridding yourself of the burdens that are holding you back.

I am a transpersonal therapist, working in private practice in Suffolk online and in person. I also teach at The Psychosynthesis Trust in London. My journey to psychotherapy began in the field of grief and bereavement. After having worked for a number of years in palliative care and running bereavement groups, I wrote Speaking of Death, a collection of real life experiences of grief. My model of therapy works with the whole person – thoughts, feelings and the body. Its focus is also not just on the presenting problem but holds a space for what is trying to emerge through that problem.

Are there relationship issues with family, partners or friends? You may have just had a diagnosis and are unsure what this means for you? I offer an individual tailored therapy known as integrative therapy which incorporates person centred, CBT and DBT online.

People who are keen to re-orientate their lives in the direction of their values - towards what gives them a sense of meaning and purpose. Having a clearer idea of what really matters helps people motivate themselves - even to the extent of accepting the difficulties it may entail - to either change or persist - in behaviours that will move them in their valued directions. Typically, this approach can be powerfully effective in dealing with the pervasive problems of stress, anxiety and depression and other chronic issues where rigid patterns of avoidant behaviour have developed.

HG psychotherapy aims to restore that control in the shortest time possible by working with effective tools and modern knowledge to resolve most difficulties, whether expressed as trauma, anxiety, phobia, depression, addiction, or other obstacles to well-being.

People seek therapy for different reasons and at different stages of life. Usually therapy is sought when stress has outweighed the ability to cope, or usual ways of coping have become less effective. Common reasons for seeking therapy include work stress, relationship problems, anxiety, worry, low self-confidence or depression. Some people will have experienced feelings of distress for many years before feeling able to seek help.

Welcome! As an integrative counsellor, I draw upon a number of theories and styles to support you, enabling me to work in the best possible way to suit your personal needs. Despite, however, different theories and styles, it is the 'relationship' between us which has been found to be the most important factor in facilitating change. I aim to provide a warm, non-judgemental and empathic relationship, which is based upon trust and sensitivity, to help you to explore your concerns and to be able to gain awareness and understanding of yourself through the process.

I believe experiencing difficulties is part of being human, something we all encounter at various points during our lifetime. What gets in the way of living life more fully - relationships with friends/family/partner becoming strained; experiencing a traumatic incident; growing up in an environment which didn’t feel nurturing and supportive or which hurt you physically or sexually; someone you loved or cared for has died; living with chronic illness; feeling stressed at work or as parent; reaching a pivotal age and being unsure about the future; needing to make a decision but finding it hard; feeling ‘off’ and not being sure why.

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.
