Dr Steven Coen (BSc Hons, PhD, CPsychol, DClinPsy)
I am a qualified and experienced Clinical Psychologist (DClinPsy) and Chartered Psychologist (CPsychol). I provide evidence based support to people who are experiencing emotional and psychological difficulties. I am trained in a variety of psychotherapy approaches (cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), systemic therapy and psychodynamic therapy) and experienced in supporting individuals at all stages of the lifespan (child to adult). I specialise in the treatment of depression, anxiety problems (e.g. panic, phobia, OCD), long term conditions (e.g. chronic pain) and managing the long term effects of psychological trauma (e.g. emotional, physical, sexual abuse). I use my clinical experience to employ evidence based psychological therapy tailored to each individual to support clients to overcome difficulties, manage and cope with their experiences. Each person will undergo a thorough assessment before agreeing together which approach would be best suited to their needs.
In addition to my clinical work, I also have a wealth of experience in clinical research culminating in a number of publications including journal articles and book chapters. I continue to pursue research into mental health and clinical mental health practice which keeps me up-to-date with guidelines on clinical practice which compliments my work with clients.
I work predominately for the NHS so I am available weekday evenings only for face to face meetings although Skype sessions are possible at the weekends. Please feel free to email me with any questions.

What to do next:
Call or email to have an initial discussion about your needs and what you would like to get out of therapy, without any obligation. If you are happy to continue, we will arrange an initial session. I meet with clients at consulting rooms near Goodge street, central London.
We will then go through a more detailed assessment and arrange further sessions on a weekly or fortnightly basis.
