Is there any way to get a job lined up in London before I go? What are the chances of finding a live-in job? What are the chances of finding a psychology/counseling related internship or job?

My experience is that it's impossible to line up a job before you arrive in London. Your employer wants to see you in person and does not want to wait for you to arrive, settlie in, etc before you can start work.

Hiya,
I arrived in London and spent a good few weeks looking for a job. Granted, I was a bit slack & wasn't out there every day, took a bit of time to adjust & settle - but I did do lots of internet trawling - and it can take a while to organise appointments if you're going thru recruitment agents etc. You could at least fwd them your CV and organise appointment times before you arrive. Apply to as many as possible!
Make sure you've got enough money to get you through a couple of weeks of settling in and taking the tube to different interviews etc, and a bit spare to socialise with your new friends.
It's not a cheap place and you don't want to be on house-arrest because you have no money.
