About me

Noel Bell, Psychotherapist,London close to More London SE1

Making the first step to contact a therapist can be daunting. However, it can also be the initial step in a journey of transformation and liberation from self-limiting issues holding you back in life. I have sought help from a number of therapists as part of my own journey of personal therapy over the years so am fully familiar with the processes involved as a client.

What you may expect to achieve from working with me is meaningful insight, greater clarity and the ability to develop your inner wisdom. I have helped people with occupational stress, anxiety, infertility, sexual abuse, trauma, depression, relationship difficulties, addictions and life transitions.

I work with individuals in one to one personal therapy as well as with couples in relationship counselling. I can help you to bring awareness to the relationship between what you think, what you feel and your consequential behaviour so that you will have greater insight into the cause of your suffering, or present difficulties. I host a blog about health and well-being and you can read my posts from this link: http://noelbell.net/psychotherapy-blog/

I have spent the past 20 years exploring and studying personal growth, recovery from addictions and inner transformation. Check out my podcasts on my website: http://noelbell.net/podcasts/

In my work, I draw upon a broad spectrum of psychotherapeutic knowledge and tune my approach to match the uniqueness of each individual I work with. I am flexible in my theoretical approach depending on your particular needs. I can draw upon the most effective tools and techniques from a number of schools and traditions including Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Humanist (Person- Centred and Gestalt), Existential and Transpersonal.  This, for me, is what it means to be an integrative counsellor so that I may best meet the needs of my clients.

You can obtain a better understanding of my integrative approach from my video interview with Brant Cortright PH.D which contains some of the most effective recent research findings into brain health and general well-being.

I am registered and accredited as a clinical psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I trained at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE), the largest training centre for integrative transpersonal psychotherapy in Europe, based in London. The five year postgraduate diploma programme is accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). The CCPE is also a member of the (UKCP). I abide by the UKCP Ethical Code of practice. The training was integrative in nature combining elements of psychodynamic, existential and gestalt within a depth transpersonal approach.

I undertook my psychiatric observational placement at South West London and St. George's NHS Mental Health Trust which gave me an insight into the provision of secondary care services in the NHS. The Trust works in partnership with primary care, social care and voluntary organisations to provide high-quality mental health services in South West London and nationally.

I believe that it is essential that you feel comfortable and safe with your therapist so that you can start an open and frank dialogue. Research has indicated that the working alliance (how you get on with your therapist) is as important as any other factor in successful therapeutic outcomes. I am happy to have a telephone chat in the first instance if you feel that this would help you to decide whether you want to meet me.

My previous life experience has involved management consultancy, financial trading and broadcasting. Prior to qualification as a psychotherapist I was a management consultant in London and have personal experience of working in pressured and stressful corporate environments. I see clients in London SE1 close to More London SE1

I also offer online counselling from the comfort of your own home. I hold a current enhanced criminal record certificate from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), formerly the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).

I can also offer tailored training to your organisation on ways of working with addicted clients (drugs, alcohol, internet, sex/pornography, gambling and social media/smartphone) as part of a CPD programme.
