Pamela Lawson UKCP Registered Psychotherapist
Highgate Consulting Rooms
West Hill House
6 Swain's Lane
I offer brief therapy (6-20 sessions) for clients requiring targeted support on specific issues and longer term psychotherapy for clients wishing to explore issues in greater depth. In either case, I work in accordance with the client’s goals and stated needs. Together we plot a path towards an improved sense of well-being.
