I am a Licensed counselling Therapist in the UK. I have a vast amount of experience in social services settings/mental health as a therapist working with a variety of individuals, children and families from different backgrounds presenting issues ranging from Stress, anxiety, addiction, depression and other various mental health issues. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where issues, thoughts, and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.
I believe that beginning where the client is at in the treatment process is key to a successful and beneficial therapeutic experience. My goal is to build upon what is working in the client's life and collaborate with my clients to address the needs that they feel should be addressed in a way that they feel comfortable with.
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Ian Smith. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Ian's fantastic! He really helped me get through a pretty rough patch. I quite enjoyed his style - he's easy to talk to, and knows when to listen and when to challenge. There were moments where he'd say something that seemed fairly innocuous at first, but were ultimately quite profound and had me looking at my life from a completely different angle. I'd happily work with him again any time!
Ian’s great at helping you get through difficulties while keeping the conversation light and focused.
Happy I met you Ian ;)
Working with Ian definitely helped me sort some things out, he was always very responsive and understanding and put a lot of effort in to understand my problems or guide me through options to work on it.
Ian is a patient, understanding, and kind individual with expansive experience in substance abuse. I cannot more highly recommend him as a therapist.
Ian is very easy to talk to, non judgemental, creates new challenges to old patterns and knows what he is talking about. He shows empathy and compassion at all times.
