Why see a counsellor or psychotherapist?
A professionally trained counsellor/psychotherapist can help you better understand your experiences. You may be dealing with stress, experiencing depression, anxiety or facing relationship difficulties. You may have self-limiting or destructive behaviours, such as compulsions, addictions or a troubled relationship with food. Sometimes there may be nothing in particular and everything in general that seems to be the problem and you can't quite put your finger on what's wrong, except for feeling low, anxious or having a sense of lack of direction in life. These are just some of the issues I work with on a daily basis in my psychotherapy and counselling practice.
What happens in a therapy session?
At the heart of the therapy is our relationship. We sit and talk and our relationship develops organically through honest communication. We can also work creatively (with drawing and movement), explore your dreams and include meditation and visualisations in therapy sessions if this feels helpful for you.
Research indicates that the relationship between client and therapist is the most important factor in a positive, successful outcome from therapy. I place great importance on this, making sure that you feel comfortable with the way we work together and go at your own pace.

How I Work
My approach is integrative and draws on a range of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive (CBT), Psychodynamic, Existential and Humanistic (Jungian and Transpersonal). How we work together is part of the unfolding process of our therapeutic relationship and my foremost consideration is use the approach that feels most effective for you.
My aim is to help you identify what needs to change in your life in order to resolve current difficulties and achieve optimal wellbeing. I will support you in making those changes and encourage you connect to your strengths and innate capabilities, so that you can experience a greater sense of autonomy, happiness and personal fulfilment in life.
As a transpersonal counsellor and therapist, the overarching aim of my counselling and psychotherapy services in Kings Cross and Harley Street is to facilitate self awareness, positive change, personal growth and spiritual unfolding.

Counselling or Psychotherapy?
I offer both counselling and psychotherapy at my Kings Cross and Harley Street practices. Clients are sometimes unclear about the difference between these two (and often there is very little difference) but put simply:
Clients contact my psychotherapy and counselling practice for many reasons and I have particular experience in the following areas:
I offer individual psychotherapy and counselling, couples counselling and clinical supervision for qualified and trainee therapists. You can find me at Harley Street Therapy, on the Counselling Directory and BACP Directory.
I provide EMDR therapy as part of my psychotherapy and counselling practice at Kings Cross and Harley Street and online. EMDR is suitable for trauma/PTSD, anxiety, early relational attachment/relationship problems and has also been proved effective for a broad range of other issues.
I also offer BodyMind Integrative Therapy as part of my psychotherapy and counselling at Harley Street, which places more emphasis on body-oriented approaches.
Humanistic psychology uses the term 'bodymind' to refer to a unified system in which mind, body and spirit are dynamically interrelated. This means that changes in one area ripple through and affect the individual’s whole system (psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual dimensions).
Developing greater body awareness and tapping into your body’s innate healing potential can enable more vibrant health and improve mental clarity and emotional resilience. You can read about my dedicated yoga and mindfulness work at vivid yoga.

"I initially went to see Elizabeth for counselling in Harley Street to sort out some relationship difficulties. What I thought would be a few weeks of counselling turned into over 2 years of work on myself. I made a big career move, relocated out of London and made significant changes to practically all areas of my life and I’ve never felt happier! I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone wanting guidance in moving forward with their life.
The most helpful part of the counselling process was understanding how my childhood affected how I felt about myself.
I’ve just finished a course of online therapy using EMDR for anxiety and OCD which got worse during lockdown. This has been really helpful. Highly recommended therapist.
