Steven Ricou
I am a fully qualified and BACP registered integrative counsellor with my core approach being Person Centred. This means that I work to understand your experience from your perspective. I will gently enquire about what is troubling you and support you to coming to a conclusion about how you would like to resolve your issues. The approach can help you to reconnect with your inner values and sense of self-worth, this will enable you to find your own way to move forward and progress. As an integrative counsellor I will also use techniques from other approaches to help you from time to time. These techniques are selected with you in mind, to help further your empowerment. For the past 10 years I have been a Lead Keyworker working with clients on the Autistic Spectrum with secondary and higher education settings. Since 2018 I have been working in a local hospice as a volunteer bereavement counsellor.

Emma West
Hi my name is Emma. I have a non medicalised approach to counselling which means I see mental wellbeing - how we think, feel and behave - as being the result of people's life experiences [What's happened to you?] rather than as a medical diagnosis [What's wrong with you?]. My background of working at the BBC and being a writer means I have a lot of experience of putting people at ease and developing a good rapport. I aim to offer a warm, friendly approach to counselling, which most importantly includes listening without judging. So whatever you are struggling with - stress, low mood, anxiety, relationship issues, problems at work, loss, low self esteem, anger, trauma - I will support you in exploring what is going on, help you work out what you would like to change, and work with you to find ways to make those changes. Because I believe information and understanding can go a long way to resolving problems I often use psycho-education in sessions this starts with understanding the natural ['Monkey brain'] reactions we have when life has been, or is, difficult. To this end I've developed a series of mind maps to help explain common issues eg anxiety, depression, low self esteem, sleep problems, and which also identifies potentially useful solutions for you to try out. Potentially useful solutions include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy [which is about recognising and challenging unhelpful thinking], [long out breathe] breathing techniques, mindfulness [which is about being in the here and now / accepting thoughts], and various written exercises - these are just some examples - really it's just a question of finding what works for you. Whilst I can't give you medical advice I can help you source information and support you if you are thinking about taking prescribed psychiatric drugs, are already taking psychiatric drugs but want to consider your options, have decided you want to stop taking them, and/or you are in the process of tapering already. I also have specialist experience and knowledge of disability, discrimination, health, carer, student, LGBTQIA2S+, and gender dysphoria issues, and lived experience of carer issues and rare disability. If you have a hearing impairment we can use captions on Zoom. Please just get in touch if you have any other access requirements. Finally, I'm experienced in doing long and short term work - even one off sessions - having worked in a variety of different settings including in the NHS taking referrals from the local Depression and Anxiety service, for an NHS Specialist Gender Identity Clinic [for individuals thinking about, or in the process of, transitioning], and at the University of Exeter, as well as counselling GPs and trainee doctors [via Employee Assistance Programmes], and private individuals. NB Please message me if you'd like a session on a day/time that doesn't look available on my calendar because I could have availability and/or I can create a session slot for you.

Sarah Hudson
My aim is to empower you to get to where you want to be. To help you discover your potential; to overcome your personal obstacles and issues; to improve your relationships. I have been a therapist for 27yrs and qualified up to masters level. I've worked in various settings including the NHS (hospital and doctors surgeries) and large national charities. This has given me a breath of experience in for example addictions, depression and anxiety disorders, relationship and family issues; self-harm and suicidal behaviour; trauma and bereavement. Humanistic Person Centred approach has guided my training towards Integrative Psychotherapy. The philosophy that we are all unique fits this model; it recognises the value of you as a unique person and combines elements of other approaches to help you grow and flourish. The years have taught me that I don't have all the answers although I do have the skills to help you discover yours. I also know that I can sit with you and be with you in your felt sense of anxiety, fear, depression, anger, chaos or loneliness. I strongly believe that you can be empowered to find your own answers. My passion is in the evolving research of neuro-psychotherapy or brain based therapy. This approach is based in cutting edge brain science - how the brain works, the connection with mind and body, our social interactions and our environment and how we experience all of this - emotionally and behaviourally. Maybe that sounds a lot but basically it just means that it helps me to see the whole of you rather than just one part of you. Together you and I can work towards discovering ways that help you to arrive at where you want to be. As we adjust to the presence of COVID19, online and telephone sessions offer unique opportunities for you and I to explore and experience how we work together. Contact me by telephone, text or email to learn more about me and or to explore what you feel you need. Together we will work on strategies that help you to address the root causes of your issues and build your resilience.

Ann Allega
Hello, my name is Ann and I am a registered member of the BACP. I have significant experience in online counselling and as a result I firmly believe in its benefits. I have done online and phone counselling myself and I found it to be effective. I've worked with lots of people who have never experienced counselling before and I am aware that this can be an anxiety provoking and nervous experience. However, based on my experience I am of the opinion that the release of speaking about something which you may have kept private for a long time is extremely cathartic. If you've come this far, I can offer you confidential and encouraging support through whatever it is you wish to work through. You may not even know what that is! Just that it might be time to talk to someone. My previous career was in the corporate world where I worked for over fifteen years in the beer industry. I'm an American expatriate having first moved to London in 2004. One of my special areas of interest is helping American expats (or any expats) adjust emotionally and psychologically with all the differences they face in the United Kingdom. I know because I faced the same challenges. In addition, I can work with any issue you wish to bring to me. As a registered member of BACP, I am committed to my continual personal and professional development and also work in accordance with their ethical framework for good practice.

Ruth Leaney
I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist (BACP registered) offering individual on line and telephone counselling to adults, the work can be short term or on-going. My way of working involves thinking about the link between past and present experiences, such as your relationships or how you respond to situations in your life.There could be patterns of behaviour that you have become stuck in and unaware of. There may be something specific that you are struggling with or a general feeling of unhappiness where feelings and thoughts are troubling you and have become overwhelming. I offer a non-judgemental space where we can explore whatever you bring together, at your own pace and in a way which feels safe. Having this space to recognise and make sense of your experiences can lead to positive change, more freedom and self awareness.

Stefania Santoro
Winner of the Private Healthcare Awards 2021 for Most Dedicated Online Counselling Service - London, by GHP Magazine www.ghp-news.com/winners/counselling-here-and-now/ Hello and Welcome to my profile! All the experiences we encountered since childhood have shaped our beliefs system and play a big part in the way we relate to others and ourselves. Counselling offers the opportunity to review unhelpful thinking patterns while holding a space where you can find your own narrative and give meaning to your struggles. Counselling is a process that facilitates inner discoveries and enhance self-awareness. Counselling can be of invaluable support in getting in touch with inner needs, wants and desires. My mission is to facilitate the exploration of any issues you want to offload creating a safe and confidential space where there is no pressure to perform or to meet external demands. I work holistically, acknowledging the complexity of being human, as I believe that everyone can heal and thrive in any area of life they wish to focus upon. Within my professional practice I always demonstrate sensitivity to individual differences when working with clients of diverse ethnicity, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation and cultural background, treating all people with unconditional positive regards and respect. I am a MBACP registered Counsellor specialized in Trauma work. I belong to the accredited register recognised by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. I am also accredited by the National Counselling Psychotherapy Society (NCPS). I possess more than 23 years of working experience in Mental and Trauma throughout a variety of settings such as NHS, MIND, Drugs and Alcohol for London, Carers Centre as well as EAP and Universities. Within my Integrative counselling style I use a variety of psychological interventions drawn from Gestalt Therapy, Person-Centred Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques, according to the specific needs of each client in any particular moment. My approach is collaborative and relational. The first session aim to explore what your current needs and desired therapeutic goals are, as well as giving you a confidential space to talk about anything that is a concern for you. Please feel free to drop me a message if you have any further questions. Thank you for taking the time to read this, I hope somehow this information may be helpful to you. ​

Ashley Horsley
I have worked in the field of mental health for over twenty years and I do this work from a place of love, passion and vocation. As well as a thorough and in-depth professional training I also bring the important often difficult learnings from life, relationships, parenting, loss, ageing: any such central components of being alive. My central thrust is towards connection, authenticity and trust: to offer this and thus encourage the same from you. I create a safe space in which you can feel ready to unburden yourself from the weight of whatever you are carrying alone. Whether it is your anxieties and fears or your anger and dissatisfaction; whether it is haunting trauma or crippling self-doubt: whatever it is I am there to accompany you on the journey to the bottom of it. The work is all about communication and expression, through listening to your story and through working with your body where so often tension is trapped and tormenting. The timing of your arrival in therapy is always the right timing: when your need wells right up to the surface and sends you to me I am here. It is vitally important that we do not feel locked away in solitary confinement; that hope, trust and safety are accessible human resources found in contact with others. As your therapist I will work hard to sustain or recover these for you.

Andrea Gavin
A warm welcome to my profile, For me, therapy can benefit everyone. It offers the potential for a metaphorical spring clean or MOT, space to process, reframe and recalibrate or rehearse the possible. Importantly, it can provide holding during those difficult life experiences. Psychotherapy, enables us to understand our relational ties and dynamics and step towards our relationships with fresh eyes. I love that therapy gifts us a helicopter perspective, a zooming out and shift in viewpoint. Across the years, I have been fortunate to build vast experience working with clients and patients in the NHS, Employee Assistance Programmes, within universities and also private practice. My ethos, is that therapy needs to be accessible, flexible and tailored to each persons individual needs. I have a love of culture and languages having been raised cross culturally in England and Portugal. My journey into psychotherapy happened by chance - through my work as a translator - I discovered the transformative power of psychotherapy programmes in street projects in Brazil. This took me on a new path leading to a psychology degree and professional training in psychotherapy completed in 2008. Every year I complete new training and in 2017 completed training in online counselling. As a psychotherapist, we are required to undertake a client journey ourselves - this is across many years. Undoubtedly, this helped shape my approach to my work - exposing me to working with body (concepts like character armour/self-protection), Psychodynamic (attachment and relational bonds), Gestalt (foreground/background and flow) and TA approaches (drivers, dynamics). I am an integrative psychotherapist - I look at how things regulate together or indeed where there is incongruence. Together we might explore pressure or choice points in your life or way of living within the context that human beings have a natural tendency for balance and wholeness (i.e. self-regulation) . Naturally, this happens when the right conditions are there - not dissimilar to growing plants - sunshine and water being essential. Clients' inform me that I am compassionate, warm and honest. I am also told they appreciate my ability for gentle and/or direct challenge as/when we agree this as an approach. In my practice I work with emotions ranging from connecting to these, labelling feelings and expressing them in a choiceful way. I am able to work with apathy as well as depression. I have experience of working safely with anger, fear as well as excitement and joy. Also, I am able to draw on basic CBT concepts to work with worry, anxiety and panic. I have accompanied individuals through their journey with grief and loss, adjustment at different stages of their lives. I have interest, experience and specialist training in working with emotional intensity in relationships and associated experiences such as gaslighting, power and control dynamics and domestic violence. I also have experience of working with families of prisoners. In addition to supporting clients and patients I have supported therapists in training through therapy during training as well as clinical supervision and reflective practice. I am interested in emotional and psychological well-being, personal development and growth, polarity work with emotions, motivation/goal setting, relational bonds and trauma. My availability can change so do please message me for my current availability. I hope this provides a glimpse at how I work and who I am as a therapist. Naturally, do reach out for more info. Andrea

I have been practicing as a therapist for 20 years; working initially with substance misuse within a community addictions programme. I then spent three extremely challenging but rewarding years working in a residential drug and alcohol rehab. I have also worked for Cruse Bereavement Care, in a GP surgery and for two years taught on an undergraduate counselling course at the American University in Richmond, Surrey. For the past twelve years I have worked part-time in a psychiatric hospital, providing both individual psychotherapy and running therapy groups on both the addictions programme and the general psychiatric programme. Alongside this I have developed and maintained my own private practice. In my spare time I enjoy reading, music, cinema, running, travel and cooking.

Our online therapy philosophy


The goal of E-Therapy is to provide the best private online therapy in the UK, delivering emotional, psychological and behavioural therapies to improve the quality of life for those across the country and worldwide.

The problems we set out to solve


Owing to the complexity and difficulties of our everyday lives, there is a rising demand for these therapeutic services in order to help with our emotional, psychological and physical difficulties.

Sadly, stress, depression and anxiety are now common symptoms of our fast-paced modern times.

We also know that not everybody has the time or resources to find a suitable therapist, and attend face-to-face sessions. Additionally, the stigma of experiencing and dealing with emotional and other difficulties may also prevent those who would benefit from therapy or counselling from using the traditional approach.

We firmly believe that having access to therapy from the comfort of your own home, office, or wherever you choose can help with the problems outlined.

How we strive to help you


We are passionate about helping people live peaceful, joyful and harmonious lives. We also understand that this progress is constantly hindered by the complexities of daily living.

For therapists and counsellors, E-Therapy is a secure, confidential and effective platform through which they can deliver psychological and behavioural therapies. And because it is an online medium, our experienced therapists can reach out to a wider audience.

We strongly believe that with the appropriate guidance, a significant proportion of the population in the UK and across the world can be in a better position to deal with life’s complexities and not feel exhausted or overwhelmed in the process. We strive to improve the quality of life of our clients and assist them in achieving happiness, prosperity and fulfilment through the best online mental health services possible.


Our mission statement


Assisting mankind in the alleviation of psychological and emotional conflict, thereby enabling humanity to progress a step further in its quest for fulfilment, purpose and happiness, in essence creating a more sustainable and harmonious world.
