Charlotte McLaughlin MA (Hons), MA, UKCP, HCPC
I am an experienced and fully accredited psychotherapist working with clients in my London clinics, and internationally through my online practice. I support people with a wide range of issues, and have specialist experience in working with people with eating disorders and body image issues. I work from Harley Street [W1] and the City/Old Street [EC1].
Prior to expanding my consultancy and practice full time, I was working as a senior therapist for a leading eating disorder outpatient service. I have extensive experience of working in NHS mental health services, including working as a psychotherapist at Maudsley Hospital and an arts psychotherapist in two different NHS Trusts.
I trained as a psychotherapist for 4 years and hold an MA in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy from the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education. I am accredited with UKCP and HCPC as a psychotherapist and arts psychotherapist.
As an integrative psychotherapist, I draw on a broad range of theories and styles (Gestalt, Psychoanalytic, Transpersonal, Attachment, Cognitive Behavioural, Mindfulness) in order to create the right therapeutic approach for each individual. My approach is active, empathic and relational.
My specialist clinical training and experience gained in different mental health settings coupled with my personal beliefs and interests have enabled me to develop my own unique approach to working therapeutically; a holistic and creative one which addresses the whole person.
I am passionate about my work and supporting people to heal, grow and thrive in their lives.

Choosing the right therapist is really important. If you're interested in working with me, we will set up an initial assessment consultation. This will give you the opportunity to meet me, find out more about the way I work, and for us both to get a sense of how it would be for us to work together.
I also offer a free 15 minute telephone conversation to answer any questions and queries you may have before booking the initial consultation. Please get in touch if you'd like to arrange this.
MEDIA AND PRESS: I regularly speak to the media about psychotherapy, personal development, mental health and other related issues. I am passionate about this profession and a positive view of therapy being widely promoted; so I'm available to be consulted.
