Counselling and Psychotherapy in Kings Cross, Euston and Harley Street.
Welcome to my Central London Counselling and Psychotherapy practice website. I am a psychotherapist, counsellor and a clinical supervisor registered with BACP and UKCP. I am also a qualified EMDR therapist. I see clients for counselling and psychotherapy in Kings Cross and Harley Street.
I work with individuals and couples and offer therapy as a safe, non-judgmental and empathic space in which to talk in confidence about whatever is troubling you. For clients unable to make face to face appointments, I offer sessions by Skype.
To arrange an initial session or ask any questions please email me or contact me on 07805 404811
Why see a counsellor or psychotherapist?
A professionally trained counsellor/psychotherapist can help you better understand and heal from emotional pain or mental confusion. 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. Sometimes we may just sit and not talk for a while, which is OK too.
Research indicates that a good therapeutic relationship is the most important factor in a positive, successful outcome from therapy. I place great importance on this, ensuring 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), Existential, 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 beneficial 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. 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.
“Trust yourself and you will know how to live” ~ Goethe
"A friend recommended Elizabeth to me and at first I was sceptical that therapy would help. I thought my depression and anxiety were just part of who I was. Elizabeth helped me understand why I needed to control everything in my life because I didn’t feel safe. I no longer have intrusive thoughts and I’m better at trusting people and coping with change."
"Looking back I can see how badly my anxiety was affecting my life. Understanding why I avoided dealing with my feelings and learning how to change this was probably the hardest part of the therapy but worth going through as I now feel lighter and happier."
"The most helpful part of the counselling process was understanding how my childhood affected how I felt about myself."
