Rupa Lal


Hello, I am Rupa a practising counsellor and psychotherapist based in North London.

Many clients I see feel emotionally overwhelmed which impacts their mental and physical

health. Managing alone can be extremely challenging and draining. 

The current pandemic may have increased the intensity of simply trying to cope.

This is where I can help.

We can explore the changes you would like to see together.

Talking freely can help to loosen the hold of anxious and unwanted feelings. 

Clients often share how counselling has offered them safety. A place where they felt truly understood and connected. 

Experiencing a sense of balance, hope, and resilience when they needed it most. 


My key areas of interest are in supporting adults in recovery from substance misuse and working with 

carers who are struggling due to the demands of their role. 


Arranging a Session

The sessions can take place using audio only (telephone), webcam (via Zoom) or face-face. 

(I also offer a 15 minute complimentary phone by way of an introduction to briefly discuss how I can be of support).  

We begin with a 50 min consultation so we can get to know one another

and discuss your expectations from therapy. 


There is no obligation to continue after the initial consultation. 


If my skills are not suited to your needs I am more than happy to try and help find the right support for you. 

The cost for the consultation and subsequent sessions are £60.00 for 50 mins. 

(Reduced fees depending on individual circumstances).

Individual Sessions

The consultation session allows us to discuss the challenges you are facing and how I can be of support.

This helps us both to know what we can expect from one another in the process.

The first few sessions can feel strange and this is perfectly normal especially if this is your first experience.

I will ensure not to overwhelm you and take it at your own pace answering questions as we go along. 

I can offer either short-term or long term (open-ended) sessions.

The consultation and following sessions are 50 minutes and take place weekly.

The cost of one session is £60.00 and is paid in advance.

Payment options are via Paypal or bank transfer. 

If you have a specific goal in mind we can explore this together as a way to map progress.

There will be trying times in therapy as difficult feelings and emotions can surface.

We can talk about how you are experiencing the sessions.

Your feedback is a key part of ensuring I am tracking your needs.
