Psychotherapy for individuals in a safe, comfortable and private setting
There is no one particular point in life when a person turns towards therapy. however, there some common reasons why people decide to seeking psychotherapy. Such as; loss, bereavement, trauma, depression, confidence building or an inability to recover from certain events and relationship issues.
My name is Lola Barbour, I am a psychoanalytical psychotherapist, counsellor, Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN) and executive life coach. I have been working in Belgravia, Westminster and South West London area for the past 10 years. Offering a safe and confidential space to explore and hopefully find meaning to some of your current challenges.
I offer counselling, life coach and psychotherapy to individuals , adolescents and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. The less aware we are of our motives, feelings, thoughts, actions, perceptions, the more they control us and the more we stay stuck in old patterns that don’t work anymore.
Relief from symptoms lies in discovering and incorporating into our constant, every-day consciousness that which is being masked, distracted from, or indirectly "acted out" in symptoms. Psychotherapy as a process can us to accomplishes this.

“The opportunity to express myself and explore my thoughts and feelings in a safe space was so valuable. It helped me better understand the place I was at emotionally, and to make a clear decision to move on from there.”
“I was nervous about starting counselling and a little scared at what might find myself saying! Lola was a supportive and understanding guide through therapy, and her trust and solidarity were very important. I would recommend her very highly as a counsellor.”
RICHARD, ONLINE COUNSELLING
“As a parent I think most people feel nothing is ever going to be perfect - we struggle on, day-to-day, as best we can. Talking to Lola I realise that there’s much more to it than this, current stresses and also past experiences that shape how I behave as a family member, and that I have the power to change the way I deal with those things. Thank you Lola for helping me get to this place of understanding.”
“Lola is a very warm and understanding counsellor. She helped me explore different aspects of my life and relationships without hurry, and let me take things at a pace I was comfortable with. I am so grateful for our work together, and for having her as a guide.”
