About us

Help's aim is to provide high-quality, affordable counselling to anyone living in the Greater London area. We want to make your contribution manageable and counselling affordable.

We typically support people who are experiencing a range of wellbeing and mental health concerns including anxiety, stress or depression and we offer one-to-one weekly counselling online and face-to-face in West London.

Your appointment will be at the same time each week and all sessions are 50 minutes long. Sessions are offered during the following times:

09:00am–09:00pm Monday–Friday

Your first appointment will be an Initial Assessment which can be booked directly via our website. This will help us to get an overview of your situation and to determine whether counselling at Help is right for you. It is also a time for you to assess if you want to take up counselling.

If counselling at Help is suitable for you, the wait time for a counselling slot is up to 2 weeks, and our contracts are ongoing which will allow you the time and space to work through the issue at hand.

To book an Initial Assessment, submit a self-referral form, or to read more about us, please visit our website

Please note that Help is unable to work with you if you are under the age of 18, have an active addiction or if you are receiving care for a psychiatric condition.

Training, qualifications & experience

Most of our 55 counsellors are in the final years of a 5-year training in psychotherapy, and are supervised according to BACP/UKCP guidelines.

Member organisations *

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Other areas of counselling we deal with

General counselling for a variety of issues. If you require a specialised service, Help will endeavour to refer you to the appropriate provider.
