Private Psychologist in London

Are you struggling to cope with life? Help is at hand.

Everyone goes through bad patches in life, but sometimes we need a bit of extra help. Friends and relatives are important at times like these, but when things become unmanageable it is often beneficial to seek out the advice of a trained professional such as a clinical psychologist who can offer both coping strategies and an unbiased outsider’s view of your situation.

If you are looking for the best psychologist in London, look no further than Harley Therapy Clinic, where you will find expert advice at competitive rates.

What is a psychologist?

psychologist is a practitioner trained in helping people with a range of mental health care problems by talking through a patient’s issues and helping to identify root causes. Psychologists generally have a degree in psychology, meaning they can offer an in-depth, scientific understanding of a patient’s mental state. Psychologists do not prescribe medication.

There are two main types of psychologists: clinical psychologists and counselling psychologists.

Clinical psychologists typically work in a more scientific way than counselling psychologists and often deal with more serious mental health problems, employing methods such as psychometric tests. Counselling psychologists focus more on therapeutic practices, typically helping patients with less acute emotional problems.

How can a psychologist help me?

Harley Therapy Clinic offers clinical and counselling psychology to help with everything from addiction and anxiety to bereavement and relationship problems.

Harley Therapy Clinic psychologists are trained in a variety of therapies including Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Schema Therapy. Your psychologist will help you decide which of these approaches is most suitable for you.

Psychologists can assist patients with many different problems, often in cases where antidepressants have not worked or simply do not provide enough support on their own.

There is a common misconception that only those who have suffered an extreme breakdown need to visit a psychologist. This is not, however, the case. If your life is being affected negatively by your emotions in any way – and to any extent – a visit to a psychologist could well be the answer to getting yourself back on track.

How do I know if I need to see a psychologist?

Stress, mood changes and issues with work and relationships are normal and affect most people. It is when they begin to make life unmanageable that these problems require professional attention. If you feel your quality of life has noticeably deteriorated and that you experience low moods for longer periods than normal, you may benefit from seeing a psychologist. There is no shame in admitting to yourself that you need help and you do not have to be diagnosed with a serious disorder in order to use the services of a psychologist.

How can psychological therapy treat my problems?

By looking at symptoms such as decreased appetite, addiction, social anxiety and anger issues, psychologists can help a client determine what caused them. However, the process requires dedication from both the therapist and the client.

Changes do not happen overnight and patience is crucial when undergoing a course of treatment. Harley Therapy Clinic prides itself on its team of caring, trustworthy and dedicated psychologists, who place client satisfaction at the heart of their work.
