Vince Perri Dipl Psych, UKCP registered
Sometimes in life we feel disoriented and troubled, not knowing which way to turn. At those times, the gentle support of someone on our side can help bring clarity. Together, we will engage with your deepest worries and explore creative ways of dealing with them.
In our sessions, we will create a safe space for the expression of uncomfortable thoughts and emotions. We will facilitate a harmonious inner dialogue and listen to those parts of yourself that have long been silent or have never been heard. If you want, connecting to your inner world using “imaginative bridges” such as dreams can also be part of our journey together. The ultimate aim of our therapeutic alliance will be to help you find your own resources to deal with problems and life crises, as well as representing an opportunity for you to embark on a journey of self-discovery – what I call The Road to Yourself.
I am a fully qualified and UKCP-accredited therapist, practising in the Paddington area of West London. I provide short-term counselling or open-ended psychotherapy for individuals and couples in a very private and discreet space. I have experience of working with a variety of issues, including stress and anxiety, relationship and sexuality-related difficulties, low self-esteem, feeling lost, depression, loneliness and obsessive thoughts. I follow an integrative approach which draws on different therapeutic models to suit the specific needs and personality of each client or couple.

Please feel free also to read my article on intimacy, which I published on this Counselling Directory (see below). Hopefully, you will find it useful.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am accredited by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I gained my accreditation after completing 5 years of training - a foundation course followed by a 4-year PG diploma course in Counselling and Psychotherapy, at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in London.
I have undergone further training at the CCPE and have been awarded a Diploma in Couple Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I also hold a Certificate in Psychosexual Studies from the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships.
My therapy sessions follow the standards of good practice regulated by the UKCP’s Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct.
During my training and in my private practice I have gained experience in my areas of interest and specialism by working short-term and long-term with people coming from the most varied social and cultural background.
