Welcome to Vera Bellamy’s imaginative and caring space for mental health counseling and psychotherapy
Vera Bellamy is a licensed psychotherapist, LMHC, in Delray Beach, Boca Raton, and Palm Beach county, FL. Her therapeutic work focuses on helping people to expand the immense potential of their inner resources and to learn to live fulfilling lives.
The tenets of therapy are personal commitment to healing and developing a trust in the process. Calling a professional counselor is a sign of courage and determination. Research shows that a healthy therapeutic rapport is the most important predictor of successful therapy outcomes. Healing of the mind helps people cope better with personal challenges and setbacks. Personal empowerment and confidence in one’s resources leads to building a joyful and healthier version of oneself.
If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, divorce, relationship or other mental health issues, please know that you’re not alone. Therapy can help you to create new shifts and perspectives, and achieve well-being and transformation.
- Calm yourself on a daily basis
- Begin to trust yourself for better decision-making, well-being, and creativity
- Gain wisdom, integrity, and compassion.
Your outer world will start reflecting the beauty and harmony of your inner healed self.
How do I know if I need therapy?
I feel down and alone
I don’t get any joy out of life anymore
I feel sad most of the time or all the time
I feel overwhelmed and anxious
No one understands me
If you can identify with these feelings, working with a professional therapist can help you make lasting changes in how you feel about and see the world.
As a licensed therapist and meditation teacher, I offer innovative tools to help you manage and overcome feelings of overwhelm, hopelessness, sadness or depression, no matter what the cause.
What clients are saying…
Vera is a wonderful therapist, I’ve been seeing her for over 6 months now. She’s very easy to talk to and has helped me immensely with improving my communication skills. I find her to be very insightful and recommend her to friends and family.
Vera is an extremely talented individual. She is empathetic while forcing you to be extremely honest with yourself and help you understand the root of your issues. Her knowledge and expertise in several different areas of psychology have allowed her to really hone in on what makes her patients tick. I am grateful for our sessions and always look forward to them, even when I know I have to look inward and face some harsh truths. Thank You!

How counseling works
We start with a phone or Zoom consultation. I will answer your questions and get an idea of your situation and how I can help you. We’ll discuss next steps and schedule a counseling session.
At our first session, we’ll make a plan for your therapy together. All of our sessions will be in a safe, confidential, completely non-judgmental atmosphere, conducted with compassion and empathy.
Counseling sessions may be held online or in person, depending on your needs and location. You will always receive reminders about an upcoming session. You can see my payment and cancellation policies here.
