Counselling doesn’t have to be due to trauma, a major disaster or tragedy…Sometimes you just need to know somebody cares. Whatever it may be, if it creates feelings of dissatisfaction, disillusionment or pain, You may hear yourself saying ‘Help’. Help is the beginning of not giving up, a place where sometimes if we are honest, we all find ourselves. Asking for help permits someone to help you to reveal your own solutions. Because only you knows what is right for you. I believe that the client always knows what is best for themselves. However, sometimes we all need a little help to find out just what that is.

Choosing to come for counselling is a big step and understandably you may feel anxious about how this will work for you. In our first session we will begin to get to know each other and I will explain how we will look together at the issues that are important to you. The person centred counselling that I offer puts you right at the heart of the process. I am able to provide you with a safe and supportive environment, where you will feel able to express your feelings without fear of being judged ...everything you say will be carefully listened to and treated in confidence ... if it matters to you then you are free to say it.

Do you ever feel stuck, helpless, and disconnected? Are you afraid of making decisions? Can you say an honest yes and an honest no without fear of being judged or rejected? If you can relate this could indicate unresolved trauma and a nervous system that is stuck in the fight/flight/freeze response.

Sometimes it all just feels too much. Maybe you are overwhelmed with anxiety and exhausted with trying to be someone you are not. You might be a parent, struggling to help your child through mental health issues and seek a different way of being, in order to feel more calm and focused. You might be looking to learn more about what being neurodivergent means for you, or be wanting to heal from a painful past that did not celebrate who you are. If so, counselling may be a path to help empower you, to make the changes you need and rediscover your sense of self. I want to help support you

There is a quote by a lady called Anaïs Nin – “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom" – a quote in which I firmly believe and embodies how vulnerable people feel when considering contacting a Counsellor for the first time. It is always helpful to talk to someone, especially when that someone is trained to listen and help in a specialised and interactive way. A counsellor is not there to judge you, nor are they there to tell you what to do. Instead counselling provides a safe and respectful environment to express and explore your feelings and troubles.

Are you feeling constantly overwhelmed with life's challenges? Maybe you feel as though you need to "just try harder", though no matter how hard you try, you always seem to be having to play catch up with the rest of the world. I wonder if you are left feeling unworthy and different, and if you find yourself being criticised for this, either by yourself or others. I am a qualified Person-Centred therapist, who works with a range of issues, though I do have a special interest in ADHD and chronic illnesses, having experience with both in my own life.

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.
