Welcome to the personal website of Noel Bell.
I have spent the past 20 years exploring and studying personal growth, recovery from addictions and inner transformation. In my work, I draw upon a broad spectrum of psychotherapeutic knowledge and tune my approach to match the uniqueness of each person I work with.
I am available for both short and long term psychotherapy or counselling in London. I can see clients in Sydenham, SE26, serving Crystal Palace, Penge and Dulwich or Paddington, West London, serving St Johns Wood, Marylebone and Bayswater. I am in the final year of my postgraduate training so can see clients for reduced fees whilst I am working towards professional accreditation. Call me on 07852 407140 to discuss how we could work together.
I am flexible in my theoretical approach depending on the particular needs of the client. I can draw upon several tools and techniques from a number of schools and traditions including psychodynamic, humanist, existential and transpersonal. This, for me, is what it means to be an integrative counsellor so that I may best meet the needs of my clients.
I have trained at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE), the largest training centre for integrative transpersonal psychotherapy in the UK, based in London. The five year postgraduate diploma programme is accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). The CCPE is also a member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

I undertook my psychiatric observational placement at South West London and St. George’s NHS Mental Health Trust which gave me an insight into the provision of secondary care services in the NHS. The Trust works in partnership with primary care, social care and voluntary organisations to provide high-quality mental health services in South West London and nationally.
Are you looking to find a counsellor or therapist? My section on finding counsellors and therapists can help you find the appropriate service. It is important that you feel comfortable with your therapist so that you can build trust and enter into an open and frank dialogue. Research has shown that the working alliance (the rapport between client and counsellor) is as important as the skills base of the counsellor or the theoretical orientation of the therapist. Check out also the section on free guides for counselling and psychotherapy.
You may contact me by calling my mobile telephone number 07852 407140 We can have a confidential chat which will give you an opportunity to check if we might get on with each other.

I am a psychotherapist in training, working towards professional accreditation. I, therefore, do not provide psychotherapeutic services via this blog. If you are experiencing a crisis, call your personal therapist, go to your local hospital accident and emergency room or dial 999. I wish you all the best.
