Counselling in Oxford Circus, London Bridge, Clapham and Surbiton

Hi, my name is Yingli. I am an experienced counselling therapist with a private practice in Central and Southwest London, where I provide personalised one-to-one counselling sessions for women seeking help with emotional, personal or relationship issues. I work face to face and also offer online counselling sessions Via Zoom/Skype/Facetime. I offer sessions in English and Mandarin.

I understand reaching out for support and finding the right therapist is not always easy, so I hope the information provided here will help you see whether my background, experience and training is likely to meet you needs.

Setting “feeling good enough” as my main therapeutic aim is because, I realise the importance of having healthy self-worth and self-esteem, and its specific manifestation is feeling good enough about ourselves, which allows us to remain calm and resilient in the face of inevitable difficulties in life. I believe that feeling worthy – to recognise and embrace our own uniqueness and innate self-worth is our birth rights, which can be attained through supportive ongoing counselling relationship.

During our journey together, my aim as a counsellor is to help you to develop, improve and strengthen your sense of self-worth and self-esteem, so you will thrive in all kind of relationships. No matter what your current challenges are, I can provide you a warm and non-judgemental space to hold you and your problems. In this space that is free from judgement, your self-love and self-worth will be nourished, and you will feel better and better about who you essentially are and begin to thrive to reach your true potentials in life.
