Simeon Vellani

COVID-19 Update: I am currently only working online but hope to return to face to face sessions in the June to July 2021 timeframe (conditions permitting).

Enquiries can of course still be made via my website or by phone see links on this page.


Sometimes the fear of being judged can hold us back from seeking help and advice, and in resisting we fail to be true to ourselves and embrace the possibilities a positive practical step like Counselling or Psychotherapy can offer.

Whether you know what brings you to seek help, or simply wish to explore things that concern you and just feel something is not quite right, I invite you to take a moment to take action and consider a change.

I am a Psychotherapist, Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Certified Transactional Analyst. Transactional Analysis (TA) is integrative and draws upon Humanistic, Relational and Cognitive Behavioural approaches, this permits me to tailor therapy to your individual requirements. The key TA belief being that we are all capable of change.

I was professionally trained at the Metanoia Institute in London, which has a heritage in training spanning 30 years.
