Cath Carless - Psychotherapist and Counsellor registered with UKCP & BACP
I am a professionally qualified and experienced psychotherapist and counsellor registered with the UKCP and BACP.
People come to see me for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes there is no obvious cause for the way they might be feeling but, it is apparent that life is not as enjoyable as they would like.
Some feel anxious and depressed. Others are concerned about their lack of confidence and self esteem or, there are relationship difficulties at home, work or, socially.
It may be, that something happened quite a long time ago, but it still causes upset.
Voicing thoughts and feelings with someone non judgemental and trained to listen in a particular way does bring some peace of mind.
It may be that you also want to learn more about yourself to understand why you act or, react in a particular way and to look to make some changes in your life.
The Next Step
To gain an idea of what it might be like working with me and to decide whether the way I work feels like the right approach for you it can be very helpful to arrange an introductory meeting.
I work from two locations in central London:
My London Bridge practice is located in a calm pedestrian mews off Borough High Street, close to Borough Market.
My practice in Bloomsbury is close to Tottenham Court Road at the top of a late 18th century townhouse, a light airy room overlooking the rear garden.
It is worthwhile taking time to consider the times/days of the week that you could set aside for therapy which would least impact on preferred routines and activities as I tend to meet with clients at the same time and on the same day each week.

I abide by the code of ethics and practice established by these organisations.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked as a counsellor in the charity sector, with WPF therapy and Sutton Counselling.
I began training as a therapist in 2004 having been appointed in various roles in the charity and public sector where I supported parents and carers of children with learning difficulties and physical disabilities.
I have also worked on a voluntary basis with children on the autistic spectrum and with children who have profound and multiple disabilities.
I recognise the strain which caring can bring to a family and the issues which can affect adults and children/young people with a disabled family member.
