About William Smith (he/him)

Hello, I’m William, a BACP accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor offering online support to adults across the UK, Europe, and beyond. I want to help you find greater clarity, self-understanding, and positive change in your life.

My path to becoming a psychotherapeutic counsellor wasn’t straightforward. After years in successful yet unfulfilling careers, I felt adrift, unsure of what would bring meaning to my life. Through my own journey in therapy, I discovered the transformative power of self-awareness and self-compassion. This inspired me to help others on their own paths of self-discovery.

My therapeutic training is rooted in my diploma in therapeutic counselling, providing the practical foundation for my work. Additionally, my studies in psychology (BSc) and gender studies (MSc) offer a well-rounded theoretical understanding of human behaviour and how identity shapes our experiences. This allows me to provide an informed and sensitive approach, tailoring my support to your individual needs.

I blend various therapeutic approaches (including psychodynamic, humanistic, mindfulness, and CBT) to adapt my support to your individual needs. I’m also deeply interested in helping clients explore how their diverse identities (gender, race, sexuality, etc.) can shape their experiences.

As a BACP Accredited Member, I work within a strict ethical framework to ensure your well-being is at the centre of everything we do. I firmly believe online therapy is a convenient and effective way to get the support you need, no matter where you’re located.

Therapy with me offers a non-judgmental space to be heard and understood. Together, we’ll explore your experiences, unlock greater self-awareness, and find ways to help you grow and create meaningful change.
