My name is Vanessa Williams and I am a BACP registered Psychotherapist. My undergraduate degree is in Developmental and Educational Psychology that I obtained in the UK, and completed my Masters is in Counselling Psychology in California, US. Currently, I’m a practicing psychotherapist and I also teach Psychology within the Higher Educational sector part time.
Having practiced psychotherapy within the UK and the US, I have varied experience working with clients of various demographics, in the context of couples, families, individuals and children.
I see clients through a blend of psychodynamic and humanistic lens, as I share the view that childhood experiences have a substantial impact on our adult lives and personalities. These events can cause problems as adults if they remain in our unconscious minds. My work often involves aiding the process of bringing those unconscious feelings to the awareness, and helping you to use therapeutic tools to fulfil your potential in yourself, and also in your intimate relationships.
My background involves working clients currently experiencing depression, anxiety, self esteem/ self image, Abuse and emotional stressors that come with Life changes such as bereavement, divorce/ separation, Families dealing with critical illnesses.

Vanessa is honestly so helpful.
Vanessa has quickly got a good grasp of me, my issues and my personality. She is warm, understanding, a good listener and asks great/perceptive questions…but also pushes me and is firm when I need it. She has helped me enormously after just a few sessions.
I worked with Vanessa for 3 months. She provided a safe space to be heard and asked the questions that provided me with some perspective on things. I felt that she was in my corner and understood my issues as well as challenging me where needed. I would definitely recommend Vanessa.
Vanessa was amazing to work with, she offers a safe and welcoming space. She gives insightful perspectives and poses important questions that helped me in my journey. I would highly recommend her!
