A situation may occur whereby you experience a crisis, bereavement, family/relationship difficulty, trauma or deep sadness making life very unsettled. This imbalance sometimes means that people seek out support through counselling to share concerns and feelings. Reaching out can be a massive step for many people, but it is such an important step.

Both my own experiences of OCD from an early age & my clinical training have led me to deeply understand OCD, & how to recover from it. Because of this, I know that it’s so important to have an OCD therapist who really understands you. And now, you are no longer on your own with OCD - you have found a private OCD specialist who has been where you are now, & has successfully recovered from OCD. I understand the nature of your intrusive thoughts, obsessions, compulsions, struggles, & distress, & how to guide you out of your OCD labyrinth. My service is for adults (18+). Please explore doctorpointer.com

Therapy is not a casual undertaking. It requires a sincere commitment on your part to prioritise yourself and your personal growth. Together, we will identify any blind spots you may have and we will take action by resetting those frames of reference and patterns of behaviour that are holding you back. Combining Psychotherapy, Psychology and Coaching, I practice from an integrated approach, which involves selecting techniques from different therapeutic orientations best suited to a Client's particular problem. I mainly work with Polyvagal theory, the Person-Centred approach, Transactional Analysis, CBT & Psychodynamic theory.

It may be that you have a current issue that you are looking to gain clarity of, or you may be aware of wanting to let go of a difficult past experience and the effects that it still has on you in the present. I believe that our pasts affect our current ways of being, and whilst we can instinctively want to distance ourselves from difficult memories, I have witnessed how healing it can be to work through them in the safety of the therapy space. However you choose to focus your sessions, I will work alongside you offering insight, gentle reflections and support.

You might be seeking therapy for a number of different reasons. Perhaps you’re finding the world a very uncertain place right now and are feeling overwhelmed. You might want to talk to someone who won’t judge you. Or you might find yourself in a crisis which is difficult to move on from. Perhaps you are looking for a space to have time to reflect on where you have got to in life and provide fresh impetus for personal growth. If you find yourself distressed, confused, seeking a change in direction or simply wanting someone to talk to, I can help. My own experience of therapy has shown me that struggles can be a catalyst for change.

Everyone is different and counselling is not a 'one size fits all' approach. Managing life's difficulties thrown upon us can be challenging in many ways, but I will be alongside you every step of the way. Through our relationship I will help you unravel your thoughts and feelings but I ask for self-compassion; it may be bumpy.

We all go through periods in our life where we feel sad, anxious or overwhelmed by our difficulties and struggle to find a way forward. Perhaps you are going through a life transition, relationship breakdown or feeling stuck and lost as to how to make changes? Often these feelings can be linked to experiences from our childhood. Unlocking this can help make sense of what we are experiencing in the present. I can help you move forward by giving space and support to work through these feelings, make links and look at any challenges you face from a different perspective.

Life is challenging. Many times in our lives we will be able to take on these challenges and find our own way through, but sometimes we can feel stuck or overwhelmed and they can feel like mountains. Perhaps you’re struggling with persistent anxious thoughts, feelings of hopelessness, relationship issues, navigating loss or trauma, experiencing addiction, or fertility or family difficulties…..please know you’re not alone. Together, and at your pace, we can explore the challenges you are facing now, gently turn over the stones of experience, with patience and compassion, to bring about new awareness and balance in your life.

Sometimes it can feel as if nobody understands us or our challenges. I wonder if a particular change, loss or relationship has left you disconnected from others? Perhaps you are facing a crossroads, feeling stuck or uncertain? If you are experiencing a sense of prolonged anxiety, low mood or find yourself trying to navigate through a mixture of unsettling thoughts, taking the time to share your story in a safe space may help you find a way forward. I endeavour to provide a supportive listening relationship to enable you to explore aspects of your life causing worry, sadness or stress.

Looking for a counsellor for the first time can be daunting. However, suffering ongoing emotional pain is miserable. We are all entitled to lead a fulfilling life. Maybe you have a specific issue, or maybe you or aren't sure what is wrong , but you feel low or anxious. I have 20 years' experience of working in the mental health field, and set up my practice as a counsellor in 2014. I work with adults of all ages and young adults (16-18). Talking to a professional who is not involved, that you can trust, who is not going to judge can help you to make sense of what is happening for you.

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.
