Psychology in the UK: Introduction

Who is a psychologist?

TYHO psychologists in London can help you manage your emotions, improve your confidence, help you adjust to a new change in life (eg quitting your job) and treat several kinds of mental health issues. 

Some people might see a psychologist because they feel constantly low (eg always feeling emotional) and irritable, while others may want help to improve their social skills. 

Similarly, people seek a psychologist’s help if they feel overwhelmed by their work or have communication and intimacy issues with their partner. 

The reasons for seeking therapy in London are different for everyone. That is to say that no matter what you are currently going through, you can overcome them with the help of our psychologists. 

Rather than only helping with emotional distress, TYHO psychologists can also help you with certain physical health issues that make you feel hopeless. 

For example, you may have issues such as lack of good sleep, difficulty concentrating or paying attention or experiencing chronic muscle pain. 

Although the above problems may have a medical origin, sometimes, you may also face them due to psychological triggers. 

What does a psychologist do?

To check the source of your problems, your psychologist may conduct tests and diagnostic assessments to identify why you cannot sleep, what causes you distress, why you’re unable to focus, and so on. 

Diagnostic tests may include assessing and observing:

  • Intellectual skills
  • Strengths and weaknesses in thinking and reasoning (known as cognitive abilities)
  • Personality traits 
  • Career preferences and aptitude

Psychologists at TYHO conduct psychotherapy (or ‘Talk Therapy’) and use evidence-based approaches to help improve your life. 

Some common types of therapies used by online psychologists in London include:

We provide several therapy services, including care for individuals, children, couples, and families. 

Your psychologist will work with you to develop a management plan based on your presenting problems and goals and your need for therapy. 

How long should psychotherapy take?

Psychotherapy is usually not a lifetime commitment. Some people may feel relief after only a few sessions of therapy. In contrast, others may feel like they are progressing only after several sessions over the years. 

There is no rule as to how long therapy should take. The duration also depends on your issues and your therapy goals. 

If you wish to find a solution or relief for a temporary and immediate problem, such as adjusting to a new country, you may prefer short-term therapy. 

On the other hand, if you would like to explore how your childhood experiences may have affected your present life or need help with a mental health condition such as chronic depression or anxiety, you may benefit from long-term therapy.

TYHO psychologists in the UK provide both short-term and long-term therapy. 

Remember that it is okay to seek help at any time, regardless of what kind of issues you are facing. 

Similarly, try to attend therapy long enough to give it a chance to have a positive impact on your life. 

You will work with your psychologist to decide when you are ready to terminate therapy sessions. 

Why TYHO psychologists?

Note: On TYHO, we use the term ‘Therapists’ to collectively refer to psychologists, counsellors, and psychotherapists in London

TYHO psychologists are all qualified and have a minimum of a master’s in counselling or psychology. 

You can book a session with our psychologist if you need help:

  • Managing a mental health condition
  • Receiving a diagnosis
  • Improving your lifestyle and habits
  • Understanding your life, emotions, and experiences

Our psychologists are skilled in using psychological assessments and tests. While selecting professionals, we also make sure that the psychologist aligns with TYHO’s core values: empathy, open-mindedness, and inclusion of diverse cultures.

Rest assured, your psychologist will not cloud your judgement or influence your decisions during therapy.

We offer online therapy in Manchester, Birmingham, and London.

How Can Therapy Help?

What issues can psychologists help with?

What a psychologist can help with depends on their specialisations and training. Please visit your shortlisted psychologist’s full profile and see the ‘What Therapist Can Help With’ section for a full list of issues they can help you with. 

Below are some of the behavioural, psychological, personal, and workplace issues TYHO psychologists in London can address:

  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Work-related stress and burnout
  • Lack of communication skills
  • Job insecurity
  • Heavy workload and deadlines
  • Lack of social skills
  • Loss of joy or satisfaction in daily activities
  • Improving performance and habits
  • Anger
  • Problems with eating and body image issues
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Bipolar disorder

  • Stress and chronic pain
What questions to ask your psychologist in London?

Preparing questions for your psychologist before starting therapy is a great way to check if they are a good fit for your needs and requirements.   

You probably want to talk to someone who can clarify all your doubts and provide the best treatment possible. Online UK psychologists at TYHO are experienced with several mental health issues and will be happy to clarify your doubts about therapy. 

In fact, asking questions will help build a positive therapeutic relationship with your psychologist in London. 

Below are some questions you can ask your psychologist: 

  • What types of therapy do you have expertise in? – Being informed about what types of therapies are available can help you set your expectations. For example, if you need help with trauma, you could ask your psychologist if their approaches are trauma-focused and what other alternatives are available for you.
  • What are your specialisations? – Knowing your psychologist’s specialisations could help you find the right fit. For example, see the ‘What Therapist Can Help With’ section on a psychologist’s complete profile to see the list of issues they can help you with.  
  • How do you determine my therapy goals? – You can work with your psychologist to determine goals together. However, asking this question can help you gauge if your psychologist is open to collaborating with you during therapy. Additionally, this question will also help you decide on a timeframe for therapy in London.  
  • What is therapy with you like? – It is a good idea to understand how therapy would work with your psychologist. You can ask about the Therapeutic Plan, what style you can expect, and what kinds of therapeutic exercises you can look forward to.  
  • What should I do outside therapy sessions? – Asking this question will help you judge if your psychologist is willing to help you become self-reliant to solve problems in the future. TYHO psychologists may also provide you with therapy homework that you can work on outside therapy.  
How to get the most out of therapy?

To get the most out of therapy, there are two very important points to work on:

  • Developing a strong therapeutic alliance
  • Participating actively during and after therapy

You can develop a positive and healthy relationship with your psychologist by asking them questions about the therapy process (as seen in the previous section) and by sharing information about you as honestly as possible.

The more you share about yourself, the better your psychologist will be able to help you. TYHO psychologists are empathic and will also work along with you in building a good rapport. 

To make you comfortable, your psychologist in London may also ask you several questions about your goals and expectations of online therapy, your presenting issues and your medical and general life and family background. 

The second most important aspect of getting quality care is participating actively in the sessions. For example, your psychologist may assign you therapy homework, which you can view on your TYHO profile dashboard. 

Try to finish the homework on time for your next session and apply the tools you learned in therapy in real-life situations. Practically using the tools you know will help improve your progress at a much quicker rate. 

In fact, recent research found that both client and therapist-rated therapeutic alliances were associated with engagement in therapy and a reduction in global and psychotic symptoms.

Hence, all the above elements are dependent on each other. Working on one point will also positively impact other areas of therapy!

What to Expect at the Psychologist

Knowing what to expect from a psychologist in London can help ease your nervousness surrounding therapy. 

In this section, we provide information on what kind of services you can expect at TYHO and how therapy can help you in the short and long term. 

During therapy, you can expect to receive a personalised plan and support. 

Your psychologist in Birmingham may use a specific therapeutic tool, such as cognitive restructuring from CBT, to help you replace negative and unhelpful thoughts. 

On the other hand, your psychologist may draw from several modalities, such as dialectical behavioural therapy and grief therapy, to help you cope with issues such as:

The type of therapy will depend on your issues and your psychologist’s specialisations and recommendations. 

At TYHO, we provide short-term and long-term support for any problem you may face at any stage of your life. 

If you have issues in your relationships or want to become more assertive at work, short-term therapy can help you find quick and effective solutions.

On the other hand, if you would like to explore your childhood negative experiences or need help understanding your thoughts and emotions, long-term therapy can help you.

We have online psychologists at TYHO who offer both short-term and long-term therapy. 

You can either attend a session through a phone call or through an online video session. Please be assured that all therapy sessions at TYHO are confidential and private. 

At TYHO, you can seek help for your personal issues, relationship issues, and family conflicts. 

For example, TYHO couples counsellors use approaches such as Gottman's method to help you deal with the following:

  • Conflicts in the relationship
  • Frequent arguments with your partner
  • Lack of intimacy and emotional bond
  • Differences of opinion in several areas, such as politics and finances

Similarly, if you face issues and conflict in your family, our family counsellors can help you.

TYHO counsellors in London may use approaches such as systemic family therapy to help you with issues such as:

  • Arguments in the family
  • Misunderstandings due to generational gaps
  • Lack of open and honest communication
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Parental stress
  • Caregiver stress
  • Coping with ageing and chronic health issues

We aim to help you become self-reliant and cope with any problems that may arise in your life – even long after therapy has ended. 

Hence, through therapy sessions, you can create short-term and long-term goals that you want to achieve. 

The most important thing to remember is that progress looks different for everyone. You may achieve some of your goals after just a few sessions, while other goals may take more time. 

However, after a few sessions, you will begin to notice the positive changes in your life and in the way you think and feel. 

TYHO psychologists in London prioritise you above all else and will celebrate all your milestones along with you. 

If you feel like you are not progressing, you can openly discuss it with your psychologist. 

Being honest will help the professional tailor the therapeutic plan more effectively!

During therapy, you can gain benefits such as:

  • Improved confidence and self-esteem
  • Improved skills in coping with and managing interpersonal issues
  • Improved self-awareness and self-acceptance
  • Improved habits and practical thought patterns

Psychologists:

  • Education: Psychologists at TYHO have a minimum of a master’s in psychology. 
  • Approach: Psychologists in London use several therapeutic modalities such as motivational interviewing to help you manage issues such as grief or loss, depression, mood disorders, addictions, depression etc. 
  • Prescription: Psychologists are not doctors and cannot prescribe medication. However, your psychologist may focus on providing psychotherapy, conducting psychological testing, diagnosis, and treatment planning.

On our platform, you can watch each psychologist’s short videos to learn more about them. Remember that the key to getting the most out of therapy is to find someone you can truly trust!

Reach out to us at [email protected] if you need help selecting a psychologist in the UK.

Psychiatrists:

  • Education: Psychiatrists are medical doctors (MD or DO) with specialised training in psychiatric care.
  • Approach: Psychiatrists may use a combination of medication and psychotherapy to treat mental health conditions such as schizophrenia.
  • Prescription: Psychiatrists are licensed to prescribe medications as part of the treatment plan. The psychiatrist’s role can sometimes be more clinical, focusing on managing the symptoms through a medical lens.

You may need the help of a psychiatrist if you require medical intervention. 

Oftentimes, psychiatrists collaborate with other healthcare providers, such as counsellors in London, to provide holistic treatment.
