Life can seem difficult or even overwhelming at times. When we feel this way counselling can provide the space for you to share the difficulties you're experiencing. And by understanding these problems more clearly, you can start to make changes to your way of life and start to live more fully. As we explore your worries and the underlying issues, you will gain insight into your emotional reactions and behavioural patterns and begin to build a new self-awareness

Are you seeking therapy because you want to make your life better? It feels like life has always been and uphill battle for you and never felt easy. Anxiety and fear seem to be constant companions that you live with. Maybe you work offshore, a traditionally male environment where feelings and emotions are a sign of weakness and could harm your career. Perhaps your relationships have always been difficult, you struggle to express your feelings and have your voice heard. Perhaps the trauma that you experienced growing up has left you unable to trust people and what they say. You feel stuck and overwhelmed. You would like answers?

At certain times in our lives, we all need support. I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where I will work closely with you to explore feelings which are holding you back or causing difficulty in day-to-day life. Being properly heard will allow you to find answers and together we will find a way forward. I trained as a Person-Centred Counsellor at the University of Strathclyde from 1995-7. After working purely in counselling for 2 years, I went on to train as a teacher and have worked in education for 24 years. My background naturally led me into the role of Guidance Teacher. I returned to one-to-one counselling in 2022.

Hello I'm Gulli, I wish you a warm welcome. Perhaps you are grappling with a situation or behaviour that feels out of your control, or struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction or past trauma; perhaps you have lost your spark for life, and feel a deep inner home-sickness for more meaning and a sense of purpose. Whatever your unique story, seeking help takes immense courage, and at least a flicker of hope that you have the inner resources to make it through. I believe that you do.

I have been a client as well as counsellor and therefore aware of that trepidation of taking those first steps towards therapy. I'm glad I did because it empowered me in my desire to do what was right — for me. I am passionate about supporting those struggling with issues which is why I keep my prices as low as possible.

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.
