Arlette Correia

Therapist & Coach

Whether you’re trying to overcome anxiety or depression, you’re striving to take your personal or professional life up a gear, or you’re needing help to ease chronic pain or the effects of past traumas, embarking on psychotherapy can help you live a more authentic, balanced and fulfilled life. As a therapist, my aim to support you and work with you to identify problems, to give meaning to your experiences, and to discover what really matters to you, so—together—we can overcome obstacles, define meaningful goals, and build confidence in exploring new possibilities. I also have experience working with adult clients with ADHD, social anxiety, and moderate OCD and I am committed to working collaboratively with my clients to tailor treatment to their specific needs.


My professional background started in Corporate Business with more than 15 years supporting employees through programmes of change as well as coaching them through career and personal development. It was then when I notice that people struggled throughout different areas of their life and relationships, sometimes feeling stuck, unhappy, or anxious and struggling to make sense of their experiences or how to overcome them. As a therapist, I will work with you through a journey of self-discovery facilitating a new sense of awareness and understanding, of how experiences, relationships, thoughts, and emotions —from the past and present alike— influence the way you feel, the way you act and the way you live. I support you on developing strategies that allow you to identify and address the root causes of your present difficulties and how you can transform yourself to lead a more authentic and fulfilling life.


Everyone’s walk in life is unique and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for therapy. My approach to therapy is existentialist, I believe each person’s journey is unique, I see my role as therapist, as your companion, facilitating and supporting you through your journey. Together, we will look to make meaning of your experiences, ascertain what matters to you in the world, define priorities and build your confidence to explore new possibilities. Success in therapy is based on trust, I aim to create a confidential space in which you feel heard and safe to be able to share what is troubling you. I bring warmth, sensitivity, humour, a genuine interest in people and candid approach to the exploration of issues.


I have an MA on Psychotherapy and Counselling from Regent’s University. I have worked with clients of all ages and ethnicities, seeking help with a wide range of problems including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, bereavement, compulsive or suicidal thoughts, trauma, abuse, and/or relationship difficulties. I have worked extensively with expats and refugees, clients struggling to adapt to life in the UK after relocating from their home countries. I also have significant experience working with clients suffering from chronic pain and long-term health conditions, clients recovering from life-changing accidents or going through the offset of degenerative diseases like arthritis or blindness.
