Andrew Greenfield Walker
I begin by providing a calm, safe place where it is possible to say whatever needs to be said, but may be difficult to say (or even think) elsewhere. We are all unique, so particular methods for exploring any issues are selected and agreed to suit you and your own circumstances.
Solutions emerge and change occurs by a pooling of resources and joint effort. This approach works well with a wide range of difficulties from stresses and depression through to addictions, relationship difficulties, life transitions or crises, or where the problem is mixed or itself unclear.
I combine a pragmatic attitude with a sensitive listening ear and a creative imagination. I usually see clients face-to-face for 50-minute sessions, but different arrangements can be made, including phone sessions. The overall length of therapy can be fixed at the beginning or left open, as appropriate.

I have over 10 years' experience as a therapist in private practice, following a successful career as an academic and practising lawyer in the USA and London. I worked in the NHS for 8 years as a psychotherapist with the multidisciplinary Focus Homeless Outreach Team (Camden and Islington Foundation Trust), gaining experience with complex cases clinically categorised as severe or enduring mental illness in the community, including complex trauma, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and other conditions. I am an assessor at EACS in West London, one of the largest voluntary sector providers in the South-East, providing short and medium term individual counselling and therapy.
