About me

Hello, I'm Toby Burton, and I am a psychotherapist and counsellor working in the private sector and NHS in London. I work with adults and young people from all walks of life, on a range of issues, including:

  • addiction (including drugs, alcohol, porn)
  • anger
  • anxiety
  • depression/low self-esteem
  • relationship problems.

​I have worked in addiction for 27 years, and helped a multitude of drug and alcohol dependent people with their substance use problems and underlying emotional issues. In recent years, I have also helped many people struggling with the use of pornography and other compulsions.

I am able to offer counselling in-person, over the telephone or by video call.

If you have any questions about psychotherapy, counselling or addiction counselling, then I would like to welcome you to get in touch with me either by calling or texting me on 07785 340 781 or click here to send me an email.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Further information

I am an ‘integrative’ psychotherapist, which means I believe that a single therapy approach will not help you with all issues that arise for you, and that there are many different therapeutic ways for problems to be explored and worked on. Consequently, I draw techniques and ideas from different ‘schools’ of therapy, depending on the needs of the people I see.

At the heart of my work, however, is helping you see how when you avoid the experience and expression of your emotions, and your physiological anxiety, you create your problems. For some people these 'defences' against feeling are easier to see and let go of, while others find they are deeply ingrained in the way they operate and see themselves, and so can be harder to renounce.
