Psychotherapy and CBT (Certified) in London and online

Anuk Teasdale

A confidential space to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life

Welcome, and thank you for visiting. I am a psychotherapist and certified CBT therapist providing both short and long-term therapy to adult individuals in London and online.


Are you struggling with an issue in your life? Do you suffer with anxiety, OCD or depression? Do you often feel overwhelmed by your emotions?

Life can be challenging and sometimes we need professional support to help us work through the difficulties we are facing. Reaching out for professional support in the form of psychotherapy can be daunting. But you need to see it as a positive step, a way for you to find ways to work through your struggles towards a brighter future.

I am Anuk, a BACP registered psychotherapist and CBT - Certified Therapist based in London and online, working with individual adults and children on a long term or short term basis. I also work with groups either in person or online. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore what’s troubling you and work towards a greater understanding of the challenges you are facing.

I can help with issues such as ADHD and other neurodivergent conditions, such as Autism, OCD and Tourettes.

I am also experienced in helping clients with grief and loss, trauma, anxiety and depression.

For a full list of issues please see my ‘Issues I help with’ section. For more information about how Psychotherapy and CBT in London and online can help, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Group Therapy

I offer online or in person DBT Group Therapy for people who are suffering with acute emotional distress and anyone with multiple diagnoses. Initially designed for people with borderline personality disorder, complex post-traumatic stress disorder or suicidal behaviour, DBT has proven effective in helping with a variety of other issues. Please contact me for more information.


I have experience in working with young people with ADHD and ASD. This includes young people who have ADHD or ASD traits but do not have a full diagnosis. I have enhanced DBS to work with young people on their challenges. Please contact me to enquire about working with your young person. For more information about my approaches, see my ‘How I work’ section.


Psychotherapy gives you the opportunity to explore your past experiences, how they have shaped your life so far and how they influence your current thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I recognise the lasting impact of trauma, so I listen with warm empathy and compassion, giving you the time and space to explore your experiences and emotions.

Through psychotherapy, you will gain a deeper understanding of yourself and the issues that you are facing. It will help you heal past trauma and bring any unconscious feelings you have to the fore so you can find ways to change the way you think and behave.

As your psychotherapist, I am not here to fix you. I am here to offer you a fresh perspective to the challenges you are facing so you become more self-aware and find your own answers from within. I take the time to create a strong working relationship with you, so you feel comfortable and confident in sharing your personal experiences so that you can work on ways to move forward in your life.

Integrative Psychotherapy

An integrative approach to psychotherapy just means that I will draw on a range of different approaches to help you gain a fresh perspective on your struggles. Everyone is unique and everyone’s experiences are personal to them, so by drawing on a range of approaches, I can tailor your therapy to you. I can draw upon psychodynamics, CBT, motivational interviewing, or dialectical behaviour therapy to help you work through your problems, reach your goals and achieve your full potential.

Having completed post-graduate studies from the University College London in IAPT Therapy, I worked for three years in child and adolescent services (CAMHS) in East Surrey. As a result, I am able to treat both NHS child, adolescent and adult patients for OCD/BDD, complex post-traumatic stress and borderline personality disorders.

How I Work

Initial Consultation

The first session that we have together will include an initial consultation. This enables me to find out as much as I can about you, your background and the challenges you are facing so I can tailor future sessions to your needs. This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about psychotherapy and what it entails so you feel comfortable and confident working together. This initial session usually takes about 1hr 10 minutes and after that, all sessions are 50 minutes long.


As an integrative therapist who offers Psychotherapy and CBT in London and online I draw upon a range of approaches, tailored to your specific needs. So you feel more informed about the process, below is a quick description of the main approaches I use in psychotherapy sessions.

Solution Focused Therapy

Solution Focused Therapy, as the name suggested, is goal oriented, short term therapy focused on a specific issue that you are facing, rather than just exploring your thoughts and feelings. This therapeutic approach helps you change by creating solutions rather than exploring problems. We will work on what you can do in the future to overcome specific challenges, coming up with ways to achieve and sustain your desired behavioural change.

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy

DBT is based upon CBT but it is useful for people who are struggling with intense emotions. Like CBT, it helps you change the ways that your thing and behave but it also focuses on accepting who you are at the same time. DBT group therapy helps you understand that accepting yourself and trying to change may seem contradictory, but it is possible to achieve both. There are also practical strategies for you to work on in between session to help you progress towards achieving your goals.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

CBT is a solution based talking therapy to focuses on your current behaviours and emotions, helping you find practical strategies you can use to break a negative pattern of behaviour and thoughts. Through CBT, you will break your issue down into smaller parts and use a range of techniques to help you change certain thoughts or behaviours. Between each session, there will be techniques you can work on so you can create positive changes and achieve your goals.

CBT E – (Enhanced CBT)

CPT – E or Enhanced CBT is a highly structured form of CBT is used to treat all forms of eating disorders in adults and young people, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. It is a highly individualised program, usually taking about 20 – 40 weeks, depending on the severity of your condition, and going through four stages to enable you to take control of your eating disorder and the thoughts and emotions associated with it. After our initial consultation, I devise an individual map of therapy, so you we can understand your eating disorder and help you move towards a healthier future. It is also particularly effective for people with complex post-traumatic stress disorder, borderline personality disorder and OCD.
