Luiza Neumayer - Chartered Psychologist, Trauma therapist, EFT Couples Therapist
Hello and welcome
I’m here to help you find the inner strengths and resources you need to unblock what’s troubling you and move on with life. I’m a chartered psychologist, also qualified in Jungian psycho-dynamic counselling and experiential psychotherapy, working with individuals and couples.
My clients tell me I’m warm, kind and insightful – which is good, because my main aim is to offer a welcoming place where you feel it’s safe to open up. With every client, I believe it’s important to build a strong, trusting relationship so you feel willing and able to consider making changes.
My way of working is safe, relational, experiential and reflective. I give you the chance to work through difficult emotions and traumatic life experiences in a deeply personal way, with an experienced helping hand at your side as you grow stronger and heal.
Where to find me?
My office is based on 162-168 Regent Street, Linen Hall Building, very close to Oxford Circus tube station. I also offer private counselling services online (via Zoom) and telephone – whatever works for you.
How did I get here?
Before training, I worked as the CEO of a charity for children diagnosed with terminal and critical illnesses. The therapeutic relationships I built with children and their parents helped me develop a great sense of patience, perseverance, compassion and belief in the human capacity to heal.
To help me help you, I’m immersed in my own therapy, as well as in continual professional development. My knowledge of many approaches keeps enhancing my expertise and experience. In turn, that means I understand how to help you with a wide range of difficulties, from anxiety and depression to isolation, bereavement and loss or trauma.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
