Personal Counselling in London

Our therapists in Oxford Circus, Soho, Bloomsbury and Kensington are experienced in helping our clients with a range of personal, emotional and behavioural issues.

We have been providing therapy in London since 2006. Our clients are of all ages and come from many different backgrounds. Our counsellors are open and approachable and each therapist brings a wealth of training and professional experience to the counselling services we provide.

What happens at your first appointment?

There are many ways that counselling can be useful and there is no limit to the kinds of issues that can be addressed in therapy. Our counsellors have been trained in the UK and each therapist creates a supportive, confidential relationship with each of their clients.

Our approach to your well-being is based on what you need at the moment and we can support and assist you in a number of ways.

At your first meeting with one of our therapists, we will ask about your personal hopes in therapy and we will talk through what you can expect in therapy with us. This initial consultation will provide time to discuss any concerns you may have about counselling. Your psychotherapist will be able to answer any questions for you.

You may have a preference for the kind of therapist you would like to see and your personal preferences can be discussed at this first meeting. You can also choose your own therapist, depending on availability.

Appointments with your therapist will be held weekly until you decide to end therapy. Weekly therapy is the most effective type of counselling or psychotherapy, and seeing your therapist on a weekly basis is important. Like most counselling services, we do not offer fortnightly or monthly therapy.

Your past, your present, your future

Get in touch with us to arrange your first chat with one of our therapists. You can reach us by phone, email or by using our online messaging service. Feeling better starts as soon as you’ve taken the first step.

You’ll find your first appointment with us easier than you might think and at the end of this first meeting you will be able to decide if you would like to continue with further appointments. Information about fees for our counselling services might also be useful.

For those considering online therapy, more information about counselling online may help.

Client Testimonials

What types of personal and behavioural issues can individual counselling help with?

People seek counselling or psychotherapy for many different reasons. Help is available for all types of life issues. Though counselling can be used to discuss anything, these are some of the more common personal issues we have helped our clients explore and resolve:

If you are experiencing problems in your relationship, you may want to consider couples counselling.

Online therapy is also available with our London-based counsellors

It is not always convenient for some people to attend face-to-face meetings at our offices in London. Therapy is available online using platforms like Zoom, FaceTime and WhatsApp.

If you would prefer to have therapy from your home or office, most of our therapists are experienced in providing online counselling and psychotherapy. We have offered online personal therapy and online couples counselling for many years.

While most of our clients prefer to meet their therapist at our offices in Oxford Circus, Soho, Kensington or Bloomsbury, some of our clients prefer online sessions or a combination of both face-to-face and online counselling.

Therapy can be short or longer-term. Some people come for a few sessions while others continue longer. You may end therapy at any time, just by letting us know.

We understand that therapy is a private and very personal experience

Discussions in counselling are confidential. We operate a policy of non-discrimination — we do not discriminate on any grounds. Your therapist will not judge your behaviour, personal choices or past experiences. In therapy, you may discuss anything that’s on your mind.

For those individuals from other countries who are living in the UK, One Therapy London is experienced in providing culturally-sensitive counselling that takes into consideration different ethnic, religious and cultural beliefs. We have worked with people from all over the world.

Counselling is a unique personal experience that evolves from the relationship between you and your counsellor. Everyone experiences therapy differently. A first meeting with your counsellor or an online session with us can be arranged here. You may also want to read our client testimonials.

How does therapy help?

Over the years that I’ve worked as a therapist, I’ve been asked numerous times by prospective clients, “How does counselling help?”  And I’ve yet to come up with a satisfactory answer. Not because I’m in any doubt that it helps, but because the ‘how’ bit is so hard to articulate concisely…

What do I talk about in counselling?

One of the most common worries I hear expressed by people starting counselling is that they won’t know what to talk about. Some people think their problems aren’t significant enough. Others fear they have too much to say, that they might overwhelm the therapist…
