This is an extraordinarily difficult and uncertain time for much of the creative industry. Many of you have experienced a loss of work and income, and might be experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression or a crisis of identity. Others will be struggling with isolation, or relationship issues heightened by close and constant contact.
The following therapists and life coaches have agreed to provide some pay-what-you-can or low-cost online therapy to our community at this difficult time. 
Please browse their profiles, visit their websites, and contact anybody that you feel drawn to, with a brief description of what you are looking for. They will reply as soon as they can.
Be well,
Angel Comedy.

Gemma Latimer

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and BACP member, currently offering online sessions. As a counsellor I work creatively and holistically paying attention to what both mind and body are saying to support new awareness. I believe we all have innate potential inside us and sometimes need help finding and awakening that energy. As a warm, curious and authentic counsellor, I offer a safe and supportive space to help my clients identify their self-limiting beliefs, habits and live their most satisfying version of themselves.

I offer short-term and long-term counselling, tailored to your needs. Training in Gestalt, means I work person to person, observing the present moment with curiosity. Unlike approaches which focus on the individual working through issues, the Gestalt approach encourages working together through your problems as a shared exploration.

My approach allows me to work fluidly with various issues, including; anxiety, depression, bereavement, low self-esteem, mood and confidence, trauma, anger issues, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, stress, creative block and lack of motivation. With a background in the arts I have a particular interest in working creatively and experientially with clients, bringing experiences to life in the here and now.

Whether you need healing, empowerment, or just someone to listen in a safe and non-judgemental place; come along and have a session with me and let’s see if I can help.

I have worked as a Gestalt therapist for nearly 20 years now. The German word ‘gestalt’ means ‘pattern,’ ‘form’ or ‘constellation’ and is loosely translated in English as ‘the whole picture‘. Gestalt therapy is therefore a way of exploring the psyche in a way that sees a person’s feelings, body and mind as a whole – it’s a holistic approach.

Whether the therapeutic journey is explicitly body-oriented, spiritual, experimental or practical – or a combination of all these approaches, I work differently with each one of my clients as each person is a unique individual. In every case, I completely respect and honour a person’s values and beliefs. From my perspective, therapy is about two people engaging each other with their personal experiences and beliefs, their gender, sexuality, age and cultural backgrounds to grow and move together towards peace, aliveness, healing and happiness.

For the last few years I have been working in the entertainment industry myself, so I have some understanding of what the performers go through.

Fees concession (unwage /low income – daytime only) £20-30

Regular fees (depending on income – anytime) £40-60


Sarah Pearce


I am offering confidential, weekly online counselling sessions, providing a safe, non judgemental environment to explore issues that might be troubling you.

Sometimes life can knock us off our feet, and things feel unclear. We tell ourselves what we need, but feel pulled to do the opposite. Or our circumstances – particularly right now – do not allow us to support ourselves in the way we are used to. We might want something to change but we’re not sure what.

I will support you to take some space – some stillness – for exploration. Together, we will look at what you’re experiencing in your mind, body and soul in the here-and-now, and how past events, current circumstances or future worries might be impacting that.

I’ve been seeing clients since 2015, and am about to complete my Msc in Gestalt Psychotherapy. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, loss, chronic illness and trauma. Using a compassionate and creative approach, I work collaboratively with clients towards greater understanding, self acceptance and fulfilment. 

Please get in touch if you are interested in working together and I will email you with further details:

NB: Because I am also involved in the comedy industry, I would unfortunately be unable to see stand up comedians. 


Anjali Puri

This is a difficult and uncertain time for many of us, and you may be feeling the impact of this. If you feel you could do with some support to find your balance amidst this crisis, please get in touch.

When life goes off the rails, it helps to know that we aren’t alone in how we’re feeling. Counselling and psychotherapy help us navigate through challenging times and process painful experiences. It can put us more deeply in touch with who we are and release our capacity to live authentically and wholeheartedly.

I use a flexible, empathic approach that is tailored to what my clients need. I especially have experience in working with bereavement and loss, anxiety, depression and issues of isolation and loneliness.

I have a BA (Hons) degree in psychology and a Diploma in Transactional Analysis Counselling. I am a member of UKCP, BACP and UKATA and am currently working towards a Masters degree in psychotherapy, specialising in Transactional Analysis.

I am offering up to 8 sessions free of charge during the Covid-19 crisis. Please get in touch with me via text 07483265088 or email and we can set up an initial call to discuss your needs.

I work with people like you to explore the complexities of being human, untangle the messy bits and find new ways through. In our weekly sessions, we will take time to process what’s happening for you now and understand the impact of your early experiences, current events and future concerns.

Sushila Barton-King

There are times in our life when we can feel sad, anxious, overwhelmed or unfulfilled. Therapy can provide support through challenging times, or space for the exploration of patterns that cause us to feel stuck and unhappy. I offer a warm, open and non-judgemental space where we can explore your unique needs together at your own pace.

I am an integrative psychotherapist which means I employ various therapeutic models to inform my work. I believe that each person has a unique experience and therefore requires a unique style of therapy. I am completing a doctorate in counselling psychology which enables me to draw on different psychological theories to help us explore in more depth.

I have over 15 years’ experience working with adults and young people with severe anxiety, depression and trauma. Prior to my work within the field of psychotherapy and psychology I worked and trained as an actress in New York and London. I have experience in the world of performance and the specific challenges that may arise.



I offer a free initial telephone consultation.

During Covid-19 – £20 – £40

Normal rates £50 – £70

Hey there! 

I’m Chris, it’s nice to make contact with you. 

I’m a Humanistic Therapist with a passion of working with artists. I work at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), supporting artists in their craft and mental health.

COVID-19 has temporarily (I hope) changed the way the world is. Many of us now face difficulties, be it in your day-to-day life, relationships, depression, loneliness, or your artform.

Humour and sensitivity are a big part of who I am as a person, and I believe that comedy and tragedy are closely linked. I find thinking in depth with another person stimulating, rewarding and refreshing. I have common sense and can see the irony in a situation. Through years of personal therapy, I’ve developed my emotional intelligence and I’m happy to share this with you.

I aim to offer a calm environment where together, we can work to create a personal plan which best suits you.

Feel free to contact me, and I’ll do my best to assist you. Go well, Chris
