Welcome to

Counsellor & Psychotherapist | For better mental health and well-being | Counselling & Psychotherapy for Adults | Wembley, Harrow, Greater London | Online, Face-to-face

It's time for clear thinking and self-reflection

Hi. My name is Anna-Maria DiLieto and I am a BACP and NCS Accredited Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor offering National Online Sessions and In-Person Face-to-Face Sessions at my practice in Wembley, London.

There are many reasons why people come for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Some people come for very specific mental health challenges and others because they need to talk to someone about how they are feeling or wish to explore a particular life challenge they are facing. Talking to friends and family isn’t always an option and so having a safe confidential space where you can talk without fearing judgement, just be yourself and feel truly understood can be life-changing.
