What sort of practitioner do I need?

Not sure what the difference is between a counsellor and a psychotherapist? We’re here to help you choose the right practitioner for you.


Counsellors work with clients experiencing a wide range of emotional and psychological difficulties to help them bring about effective change and/or enhance their wellbeing.


Psychologists study and help treat people’s cognitive, emotional, and social processes and behaviors.


Psychotherapists use talk therapy to help you manage with general emotional unrest or acute trauma or illness.

Our therapeutic approaches

Specialist approaches

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a behavioural approach to therapy that helps people improve their emotional regulation so that clients have an alternative to risky coping strategies such as self-harm. Therapists include techniques from mindfulness, as well as practical exercises.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

A relatively new therapy, EMDR helps you talk very gradually about an experience of trauma in a safe, controlled environment, then uses eye movements to help ‘desensitise’ the memory of the experience.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT can help people develop awareness of how they feel, and create a stronger sense of control over their thoughts and actions. This can make it easier to question, slow down or divert behaviour and develop skills in self-awareness, self-control and self-acceptance over time.

Other approaches

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCBT)

A new variant on CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), MBCT uses mindfulness to help people recognise their thoughts, feelings and behaviours in order to give them more control over how to think and act.

Integrative Therapy

In integrative therapy, the therapist uses several approaches together to find the right approach for the client. For example, they may start from a person centred position, listening to why the client is in therapy and what they hope to achieve; then draw on CBT tools, such as challenging automatic negative thoughts, to help them tackle these obstacles in a different way.

Solution-Focused Therapy

Solution-focused therapy describes any work that starts when the client and practitioner agree at the beginning of therapy to work towards a specific goal. Solution-focused therapy can be ‘brief ‘ or limited to a certain number of sessions, which is sometimes called ‘solution-focused brief therapy’ (SFBT).

Art Therapy

Sometimes it can be easier to express feelings by showing them through creative work, rather than talking about them. Art therapists train specifically to help people use art techniques (painting, drawing, photography, sculpture or collage, for example) to explore responses to the challenge that brings them to therapy.

Person-Centred Therapy

Person-centred therapy focuses on the ‘actualisation’ of the client – that is, for the client to become as much themselves as possible.


Psychodynamic psychotherapy focuses on creating insight into the unconscious, subconscious or ‘hidden’ feelings, thoughts, memories and experiences that might affect how a person thinks, feels and acts.


Psychotherapy is a relational form of therapy that helps people gain insight into their feelings, memories and experiences , in order to help them reach their own conclusions about how to cope with changes in life, including mental health problems.

How do I choose a ProblemShared talk therapist who is right for me?

You can filter our list of accredited or registered practitioners by gender, speciality, type and price.

Take a look through their profiles and biographies. Feel free to send an email to the ones you feel may have the right skill set to help you and have a brief discussion with them in advance of booking a session. They will be more than happy to talk about their approach to therapy and whether this would be appropriate for you.

How do I get the most from my ProblemShared Talk Therapy sessions?

Choose your therapist carefully – feel free to send an email in advance of booking your initial session to a therapist you think may be right for you and discuss.

Remember that your therapist is here to help. If you see therapy as a collaboration, you will improve your likelihood of benefitting from it.

Arrange appointments at times that suit you, when you have an uninterrupted hour and will be in a quiet and private space.

Therapy is a confidential process. You must feel free to speak your mind.

Set goals and markers for change. This will help you chart progress and feel in control of the process.

Do any work set during sessions, outside your sessions.

Can you prescribe medication?

Our Psychiatrists can prescribe medication for certain conditions if they think this is the appropriate treatment.

Our Specialist ADHD Nurse Prescribers can prescribe medication for ADHD following an assessment with ProblemShared if the client chooses to go through our ADHD medication service.

Our prescriptions can be dispensed at any pharmacy.

Is online therapy effective?

Yes! There has been a lot of research into this question and although the majority of it comes from the US, it holds true for the UK as well. The following resources should give you an idea of the efficacy of telemedicine and counselling when compared to more traditional consultation methods:
