A psychologist can evaluate and treat your mental health problems, and may also offer counselling to help with your treatment. For both adults and children, psychologists can help you manage difficult times in your life.
Short term problems
Psychologists often help people with short term problems. These issues may include grief, trauma, or stress. Using a variety of psychotherapy and counselling methods, a psychologist can help you understand the root of your feelings and help you find a way of managing the negative effects of them.
Long term problems
Other issues might be long term concerns. Mental health diseases such as depression, bipolar disorder, and addiction often require long term treatment by a psychologist. In some cases, treatment by a psychologist is augmented by pharmaceutical treatment by a psychiatrist.
A psychologist will use clinical psychology to help you understand the causes of your problems. This involves taking an integrated approach, using both scientific and theoretical methods. In doing this, a psychologist can uncover the problems you are facing, as well as the best way of treating them.
At the base of any psychological treatment is counselling. Our counselling psychologists meet with you, giving you a safe and comfortable environment in which to express your feelings, emotions, and concerns. By listening to you, the psychologist is able to apply the appropriate psychological theories that will help determine the cause of your problems. In doing this, they can tailor your treatment plan to your specific needs.
The psychologists at Harley Street Counselling work with a variety of psychotherapeutic and counselling approaches. These include cognitive behavioural theory (CBT), psychoanalysis, and humanistic psychotherapy. In many cases, the best approach is a combination of several methods.
We also understand that not every person is able or comfortable visiting a psychologist’s office. We offer online treatment options, meaning you can speak to a psychologist from the comfort of your own home or wherever you may have to travel. Our online psychologist services give you the same expert counselling as in person appointments.
Online psychologist treatment is also helpful if you have to travel for work or family reasons. It allows you to continue your therapy even when you are not able to come to an appointment. This can help you manage stressful situations and long term issues.

We offer psychology counselling at locations around London, including Surrey, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Kent and Sussex, as well as online treatment.

Could my mental Health be linked to my addiction?
Absolutely yes, so many people are not even aware they have a mental health problem and many people don’t make the connection in children and mental health. The alcohol can become a ‘solution’ for a persons mental health. At the start it will seem as if the alcohol is quieting the mind, but in time as the addiction progresses it will only add to any mental health problems the person has. It is also difficult to diagnose a person with mental health while under the influence of alcohol.
Is it true that alcohol affects sexual performance and harm an unborn babies?
As well as being directly related to many serious diseases, drinking large amounts of alcohol can also lead to poor sexual performance, and it can harm an unborn baby. If you have an alcohol related problem, there are many ways in which you can get help to reduce your drinking, and there are also many services that you can use that will help you stop altogether. Definition The problems associated with alcoholism, or alcohol dependence, are wide ranging, and can be physical, psychological, and social.
Is rehab a cure for addiction?
There is no definitive cure for addiction. However, rehab can provide patients with the skills needed to successfully manage their addiction and remain sober. Recovery from addiction is never over and patients will need to work on their ability to avoid relapse for the rest of their lives. A high quality addiction rehab programme sets patients up for this process.
Am I an alcoholic? What is the difference between casual drinking and alcohol addiction?
Most people can enjoy a casual night out with friends, have one or two drinks and then stop, and they might not drink again for several days. They enjoy a drink, but they don’t NEED it.
