I am an accredited psychotherapist and qualified counsellor who is based in the Bayswater area of central / west London and do some work online.
I meet and talk with people who, maybe like you, want to change how they feel. There may be something specific that you are aware of (depression, anxiety, bereavement), but often the specifics of the difficulty might not be apparent, but the unhappiness is. My work with my clients is about surfacing what's going and helping clients process their feelings to reach a happier, more settled place.
I have worked, amongst other subjects, with trauma, anxiety, sadness, stress, depression, trauma, family issues, relationship difficulties, life changes (bereavement, retirement, loss or change of job), sense of identity, bullying, abuse (violent, sexual, emotional), neglect in upbringing, dissatisfaction, and a feeling of being numbed, out of touch with one’s emotions. Often clients just feel there is something wrong, without knowing exactly what it is.
Looking for help can be daunting. I would encourage you to maybe explore with a counsellor (call them, have a session) to see how it might feel for you, rather than try to make a decision about counselling without experiencing how it might feel for you. A bit like getting into a water, it can feel a bit daunting, but once in it can be feel life changing and lovely.
After a business career (I still do some work with companies and individuals in them), I have worked as a counsellor for MIND, EACS, and MCPS who are all charities providing therapy. I still do some work for mental health charities alongside my private practice.
I do have a number of early morning appointments.
My Bayswater location puts my therapy practice in reach of both central London (Westminster) and many residential areas, being minutes away from the Bayswater / Queensway stops on the Circle, District and Central tube lines plus many bus routes, and is walking distance from Hyde Park. Kensington and Chelsea, City of Westminster and Hammersmith and Fulham, the West End are all within easy reach. It is also near Paddington train station.
You are most welcome to contact me by e-mail or phone to explore counselling and if I could be of help to you with your search for counselling and therapy in the Kensington, Bayswater, Westminster area of central / west London.
