Counselling can be a profoundly self-changing experience but taking that first step may feel daunting. The thought of talking through emotional turmoil or difficult life experiences can be overwhelming, but what would it be like to talk to someone who will listen without judging you or offering you advice? Someone who can be a thinking partner? Doing this in a safe environment, at a pace that suits you can help you gain clarity and a better understanding of yourself.

Hi, I'm Dr Hannah Ryan, a Clinical Psychologist. Are you a parent of a teenager who is struggling with mental health difficulties, anger, low mood, self-harm, school refusal, or challenging behaviour? Are you feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, disconnected or burned out? If so, you are definitely not alone, and reliable help is available. Having worked with many parents in similar situations I can appreciate, but never fully understand, how incredibly challenging and all-consuming it can be to parent a young person with additional emotional or behavioural needs.

Many people come to therapy feeling low, anxious or lost, and I offer a space to explore those experiences and identify opportunities for doing things differently. I welcome people from all backgrounds and experiences, and usually start by working with you to understand who you are and what is important to you. I draw on a range of approaches (e.g. narrative therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and compassion focused approaches), with a particular focus on values and identity. I am experienced in supporting adults of all ages with a range of issues, such as low mood, stress, anxiety and shame.

We all have times in our lives where we might be experiencing conflict, or unhappiness. You might need help having experienced trauma, grief, loss, with conflicts in beliefs, ideas/ ways of parenting, or struggles we can have with unsupportive families . You might need help with freedom from shame, stress, have problems with trust, anger, conflict or rejection, help as a couple to communicate or as a parent. Most people I work with want to be loved or understood, to have agency, to have (and give) attention, to have freedom, to create, to belong, to win or to connect. Wherever you're at, we can work together towards your goals.

Hello. It can be daunting to take the first step to find the right kind of help. Some people seek help for specific reasons, or diagnoses. However, many people also come because they feel stuck, struggle with strong emotions that threaten to overwhelm, have a past loss or bereavement, low self- esteem, lack confidence or sense of self or have a loss of meaning in their lives, dissatisfaction in work or an inability to form satisfactory relationships. All of which make it hard to function at your best or feel that life is fulfilling. You don’t always need a diagnosed condition to access therapy.

Making the first step to accept that things aren't working can feel daunting. Perhaps you know exactly what you want to change or perhaps you have lost sight of what you want along the way. I specialise in working with clients who are making adjustments in their lives; perhaps after illness, into parenthood or retirement or to a new place. My clients often say that having a supportive space to process difficult feelings balanced with an active method which empowers them in their recovery is what is most helpful about therapy. My approach begins with the assumption that we all have strengths that we just may need support to uncover.

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.
