Dr Haneyeh Belyani,

PsychD, Bsc (Hons), BPS accredited, HCPC reg.

Chartered Counselling Psychologist
Counselling Central London

 I offer my clients a range of psychological therapies which I tailor to meet their individual needs and goals.  I work with adults, children, families and groups on a short-term or on-going basis.

Professional Profile

My private practice is split between London, Liverpool Street and Essex, where I work with diverse clients. In addition to working therapeutically with clients in private practice, I run and manage a school based counselling service, whereby I work with children and young people, as well supervise and manage a team of trainees and qualified practitioners.

Due to my extensive work with children and young People, I also provide training and consultation to residential and fostering agencies.

Until recently I was a senior lecturer on the professional doctorate in Counselling Psychology at the University of East London and I still teach on that programme as a guest lecturer.

Qualifications & Training

Following my BSc in Psychology, I completed a professional doctorate in Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Psychology at the University of Surrey.  This integrative training involved becoming competent in using a range of psychological models and therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Mindfullness.  The teaching on the programme was strengthened through clinical placements in NHS settings.

I am committed to professional development and continually invest in building on my skills and knowledge.  I am also trained in using Eye Movement De-sensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) and using Compassion Focussed Therapy.


My training and education have given me a sound foundation to working as a psychologist, however would not have been enough on their own.  In addition to my training, I have extensive experience in been working with people in distress in a variety of settings.  As well as working privately, I have worked with people experiencing severe and enduring mental health difficulties in the NHS as well as charities.

Within these settings, I have worked with a range of clients from different backgrounds and with different difficulties and struggles including clients diagnosed with specific or dual mental health issues. The various settings have allowed me to work with adults as well as children and families, deepening my understanding of working with individuals of all ages across the lifespan and from different backgrounds and cultures.

I believe that my work with children and young people gives me a unique insight and understanding into how childhood experiences can shape and impact adulthood and later life, enhancing my work with adults and families.

My experience and training have equipped me with the skills to assess and draw on a range of theories and modalities when working with clients.


I speak English and Farsi.
