Counselling Psychologists at Harley Therapy™ London
We all need someone to talk to
Sometimes life throws us a curveball and we find ourselves facing difficulties or issues that we simply can’t deal with on our own. Talking is important, but if you don’t have anyone you can confide in, or you’d rather not share your problems with someone you know, then where do you turn?
Counselling psychologists can help. They are experts in supporting people dealing with all sorts of issues from anxiety and stress, to depression and even relationship problems.
What does a counselling psychologist do?
Harley Therapy is made up of a leading group of counsellors, psychotherapists and chartered counselling psychologists practising right here in the heart of Central London.
Counselling psychologists work across a diverse range of mental health issues and significant life events including anxiety, stress, depression, relationships, work/career, self-esteem, anger, eating disorders, trauma, bereavement, phobias, addictions, obsessive-compulsive disorder, sexual problems, and self-development.
They are trained in counselling skills but also have degrees in psychology, which gives them a more scientific understanding of the human mind and behaviour compared to a counsellor or psychotherapist. Unlike psychiatrists, psychologists do not prescribe medication but instead focus upon counselling and therapeutic techniques (such as cognitive behavioural therapy, for example).
Harley Therapy counselling psychologists integrate psychological theory and research with therapeutic practice to help you examine your emotional problems and explore the underlying issues that may be the cause.
Your counselling psychologist will support you to make the necessary decisions to improve your sense of personal well-being and deal with any difficulties you feel are holding you back.
Talking therapy - the Harley Therapy™ approach
If you decide you could benefit from talking to one of our counselling psychologists then the process begins with a general consultation to discuss your issues and background history to establish the focus of treatment, after which you will normally meet your therapist on a weekly basis.
Counselling psychologists at Harley Therapy use a range of proven therapeutic approaches including cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic, humanistic, mindfulness and others, depending on what you both feel suits you best.
We also know that the relationship between you and your psychologist is an important determinant in producing an effective therapeutic outcome. Our aim is to give you a safe environment in which to talk about your issues, and you can decide with your therapist how many sessions you would benefit from based on the severity of your concerns, as well as your ultimate goals.
