We all need someone to talk to
Sometimes life throws a curveball and you face difficulties or issues that you simply can’t deal with on your 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.
What does a psychologist do?
Counselling and clinical psychologists help you examine your emotional problems and explore the underlying issues that may be the cause. They then support you to make the necessary decisions to improve your personal wellbeing and deal with whatever is holding you back in life.
Trained in counselling skills but also holding degrees in psychology, counselling psychologists have a more scientific understanding of the human mind behaviour compared to a counsellor or psychotherapist. Unlike psychiatrists, though, counselling psychologists do not prescribe medication.
Psychologists at London's Harley Therapy use a range of proven therapeutic approaches including cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic therapy, humanistic counselling, mindfulness based therapy and others, depending on what you both feel suits you best.
What can a psychologist help with?
Psychologists work across a diverse range of emotional health issues and significant life events including anxiety, stress, depression, relationships, work/career, self-esteem, anger, eating disorders, trauma, bereavement, phobias, addiction, OCD, sexual problems and self-development.
Psychological therapy - the Harley Therapy™ approach
If you decide you could benefit from talking to one of the psychologists your process will begin with a general consultation. You can discuss your issues and background history with your therapist, establish the focus of your treatment, and decide with them how many sessions you would benefit from. You will then normally meet your therapist on a weekly basis.
The relationship between you and your psychologist is an important part of your therapy being effective. At Harley Therapy we are committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for you to talk about your issues.
