Williamina Baillie MBACP - Holborn Bloomsbury City Central London
You may be reading this because you are experiencing some difficulties and need to talk to someone, need someone to listen and understand you. You may not know exactly what is bothering you. I am here to help and support you.
People come to therapy for many reasons: feeling stuck, depression, sadness, anxiety, panic attacks, addictions, bereavement, work, stress, relationships, identity, life changes, career, redundancy, painful emotional experiences – and this is only the beginning of a long list.
Therapy can help as it gives you the opportunity to talk in depth in confidence and safety with a qualified professional who will listen to you closely and help you explore freely and openly.
I work with adults: individuals, couples and other relationships on a brief or long-term basis.
I am trained in Rewind Technique (Closure without Disclosure) which is a 2-3 session therapy for traumatic events and phobias. I also offer psycho-education to my clients which can provide clarity and understanding.

From time-to-time I am able to offer concessions so please do not hesitate to enquire.

The initial appointment consists of an assessment to explore what brings you to counselling and your expectations.
It is very important to find a therapist in whom you have confidence and with whom you feel comfortable. The initial session gives us the opportunity to get to know each other and see if we can be able to work together for further sessions.
During the initial session, we can address any questions or concerns you may have regarding counselling and the counselling process itself.
Payment by cash, card or BACS.
