Lune Hadfield CPsychol, MSc, PGDip, Dip, BSc
As a Chartered Counselling Psychologist using an Integrative approach with a strong emphasis on Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I can help and support you devise solutions to problems and teach you new skills and techniques, working with you to develop resilience and a more positive attitude towards life's difficulties.
My approach to treatment is tailored to your individual needs and my training as a psychologist allows me the flexibility to draw on a wide range of psychological theories and therapeutic models.
My aim is to create a compassionate and supportive space where you can openly consider and discuss concerns, problems, aspirations and goals, thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
I offer safe and confidential therapy at my private practice in Central London. An initial consultation will be an opportunity for us to talk about your problems and how the therapy can help you.

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.

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.
