Couples Counselling Chingford - East London

My name is Bola. I am a fully qualified, registered and accredited psychotherapist and is a member of the professional body of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I have worked in the field of counselling and psychotherapy for over 20 years, starting out as a volunteer in a mental health charity.

I initially worked within the NHS in a complex care clinic seeing individuals with very complex psychological and emotional issues such as Borderline Personality Disorder, Extreme Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress, Depression, Sexual and child abuse and many more.

I have also worked for charities over the years until I set up in private practice, where I work with clients that present with a wide variety of difficulties and issues. I treat individuals and couples from diverse socio economic backgrounds, age groups, genders and ethnicities, to help them heal and understand themselves.

If you would like to know more or book an appointment, please send me a message.


Online therapy

I work remotely by Skype, Zoom as well as over the phone.

Statement concerning the coronavirus pandemic

Due to the Covid – 19 I moved my practice from a location which served a large number of therapists and patients to a Covid – 19 compliant space where the patient and therapist are seated 4.5 metres apart. There are two doors which are at opposite ends of the room as well as a large window which ensures more than adequate ventilation. I provide hand sanitizer and sanitise the furniture after each in person session. I have a separate toilet facility at the rear of my consulting room.

Qualifications and registrations

I qualified at MSc level in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy.  I am a registered and accredited member of the BACP.  I continue to develop as a therapist with continuous professional development.


I have provided therapy in high profile cases that have been featured on national news. I provide therapy for individuals in various countries including Hong Kong and the USA, Netherlands, France, as well as the UK. My practice receives enquires and referrals from across the globe; especially in a post Covid-19 world.

I have been approached by the BBC to be part of a team of therapists that would be taking part in a program on BBC 4. I have guested on BBC Radio 1 Xtra and other media channels speaking on numerous mental health issues. I have also appeared on the My TV channel on Sky talking on issues to do with couple relationships and has also given talks on various mental health issues.



Couples therapy is £100.00
Individual therapy is £85.00
