Why choose Harley Street Counselling and Training?

1. Our therapists listen to your needs and place you at the centre of the work.
Harley Street Counselling and Training have the desire to understand your wants, needs, aspirations and goals. We are interested in how you want to work with us, which gives us the best chance of working collaboratively. Our work is underpinned by the person-centred approach, whilst integrating potent ways of working that is largely dependent on what you need from us. We hope that this gives you the sense that you are working with someone. As we offer a private counselling service, we are not pre-occupied by weekly form filling that eats away at your session time.

2. We recognise and accept that everyone is unique.
Therefore, we do not encourage manualised therapy where one size fits all.

3. Each counsellor works within their level of competence.
Although we offer many areas where we can help, we do not profess to work with every conceivable mental health issue. If what you are looking for falls outside of our remit, we will signpost you to alternative services where possible. If you are unsure, feel free to ask.

4. Our therapists are fully qualified and have the expertise to work within their counselling approach.
This means that the therapist has undergone significant training in a particular area as part of, or as a main component, of a recognised course. A Logotherapist, armed with a weekends worth of training is not a Logotherapist.

5. Continuing professional development is an ongoing requirement to ensure we offer high standards.
We undertake a minimum of 30 hours additional training a year. Our preference is to exceed this number during an academic year.

Harley Street Consultant Supervision

I have 12 years’ experience as a qualified supervisor and practice the theoretical, philosophical, and practical aspects of clinical and counselling supervision. I work with supervisees of different counselling modalities and experience levels. Past supervees have included: psychiatrists who use counselling interventions, counsellors working in independent schools, external consultant supervision for West Kent YMCA and private practitioners of counselling and psychotherapy.

Currently I provide consultant supervision (supervision of supervision) to several NRCPD sign language interpreters (who as a profession are relatively new to the concepts of supervision) who are studying supervision practice. I also currently work with cognitive behavioural therapists and humanistic counsellors. I am open to working with new supervisees in Harley Street, central London.
My research interests include: Boxing and psychotherapy, critical thinking in counselling, and humour in psychotherapy.

Online and phone counselling.

Welcome to our online and phone service by appointment only. Online sessions take place via a face to face online platform such as Skype. You will require a high-speed broadband connection, webcam and microphone. This can be tested between you and the counsellor in advance of starting a session.

Who is suitable for therapy online?
The counsellor will include you when assessing the suitability of working together. It is not safe or appropriate to work online if you are in immediate crisis, at risk of serious harm to yourself. It is also unsuitable if there is a mental health issue that is outside of the counsellors level of proficiency and/or where a G.P would need to be the first line of contact.

How does confidentiality work online?
In order to work safely with your counsellor, you will need to ensure that you reasonably minimise the risk of interruption and intrusion. Threats to confidentiality can come through 'others' having access to your passwords, online history and data. Therefore you might need to consider if this is a possibility that requires attention.
