Psychologist, HCPC - Couns. Psych.
Do you feel that no-one understands you or the distress you are feeling? Are you anxious, or depressed, or experiencing difficulties with family and/or intimate relationships? Have you experienced loss or bereavement? Did you experience trauma in your past which is affecting your present? Are you or someone you love and/or care for, living with a chronic or terminal illness? Are you stressed at work? Do you feel overwhelmed by something in your life, or just by life itself? You may be feeling completely alone, or ashamed, or powerless. You may feel as though no-one hears you, or can understand what it is like to be you.
Counsellor, MNCPS Prof Accred
Life is overwhelming at times. It’s hard to feel you are dealing with it alone. Every journey begins with a first small step. I hope to be able to help you through difficult times to see change and a way ahead. Finding the inner strength to cope can make all the difference. You have the power within you to find the best you and you deserve to. You are the only person who knows your life, challenges, self , feelings and emotions. Don’t struggle in silence. I will be there with and for you each step to hear and listen to what you want and need. You are in control of each session.
Counsellor, MA, MBACP
I'm Kai, an individual and relationship therapist, specialising in gender, sexual, erotic and relationship diversity (GSERD). Issues that you want to bring to therapy can be focussed on this diversity, but I also work with a range of other issues, and your GSER diversity may not be the primary focus. However, working with someone who is sensitive and alert to the complexities of diverse expression can still be useful, and foster a feeling of safety and understanding in the therapeutic relationship.
Psychotherapist, MBACP Snr. Accred
I am an experienced psychotherapist working with people of all ages, to help them towards finding a more fulfilling way of life. My style of working is based on the building up of a trusting and open relationship between us, which is the basis for all our therapeutic work. I believe our experiences as children, whether good or bad, affect us throughout our lives; and by being given the time and space to 'tell our story', we develop more insight into why we are the way we are. These insights then guide us towards finding ways to change what we want to change, and value those qualities in ourselves that are beneficial.
Psychologist, PsychD, HCPC - Clin. Psych.
I'm a HCPC registered clinical psychologist, accredited EMDR practitioner and am Level 1 IFS (Internal Family Systems) trained. My career spans over 2 decades in both the NHS and independent sector. My main focus is on helping people heal from childhood trauma and become their best selves. I have a particular interest in working with neurodivergent individuals, who have often experienced more than their fair share of these. Although my main modalities are EMDR and IFS, my broad training enables me to work flexibly by drawing upon the best psychological theory and models for your circumstances and personality.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
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.
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.
