Making you better
If you've found this, you're probably affected by an anxiety disorder, have depression or anger management issues, for all of which CBT is the treatment of choice or perhaps you have one of the range of conditions where CBT is evidenced as being effective, and you're looking for help.
I have good success rates at counselling and healing people with anxiety disorders, especially those with social anxiety, agoraphobia, worrying, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and with anger management problems, with depression, and with procrastination.
I'm Andrew McLellan and I am a CBT counsellor – a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist - in Streatham, London SW16. I work mainly with people who have anxiety disorders, depression or anger management issues. I work one-to-one (either face to face or online using Skype video) and with groups.
I counsel in private practice from home in Streatham, which is readily accessible by car (free parking!) and by tube, rail and bus and is convenient for Balham, Wimbledon, Brixton, Tooting, Norwood, Clapham, Lambeth, Merton and Wandsworth. (February 2018: Streatham High Road is open again after the emergency sewer repairs, but Mitcham Lane and Riggindale Road are closed because of the planned sewer repairs. I can offer daytime and evening sessions. Unfortunately, I live on the first floor so there is no wheelchair access, but try me to see if we can find an alternative that works for you.
Apart from working in private practice, I have worked for Mind in Croydon and Mind in Kingston, one-to-one therapy and group sessions for Anger Management; I have been the well-being counsellor at Brent Mind.
I have trained as a counsellor in a number of methodologies as well as in CBT; I work by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists' code of ethics (BABCP) and am also a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

If you think CBT might be suitable for you, or if you'd like more information about counselling then contact me. If you think counselling would suit you better than CBT, you can find a counsellor at the BACP's website. If you'd like another CBT therapist, then you can find more at the BABCP's website. If you want to wait for treatment by the NHS, consider the benefits and drawbacks.
