Anthony Mellor - The Modern Psychotherapist - Central London & West London
I am a fully qualified (PGDipPsych) and registered (mBACP) integrative psychotherapist, specialising in person-centred therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and cognitive-behavioural therapy.
I utilise a wide variety of methods and expertise to help guide you through your own personal challenges, such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, low self-confidence, low self-esteem, and family issues.
We will work together to help you find greater understanding, and this will enable you to make better choices.
I know from experience that deciding to seek out a therapist can be a daunting and overwhelming task.
If my profile resonates, please write me an email or give me a call, and I will be in touch to discuss potential next steps, and how I might best be able to help.
There are moments in our lives when we can feel overwhelmed or lost, out of control or stuck, or that there is something off-kilter; that something needs to be acknowledged, reckoned with, and understood.
There is often a logic and a history to the discomfort we suffer, and whatever brings you to therapy, I hope that in a warm and confidential space, I will help you move away from anxiety, conflict and suffering, towards self-understanding and fulfilment.
My approach is contemporary, client-centred and tailored to your individual needs.
I work relationally and proactively. I provide a non-judgemental space where you will be heard and understood; and we will work collaboratively, as I offer insights and possible solutions to your dilemmas.
Through talking therapy we will start to understand and process feelings which you, or those around you, might have ignored. As you discover and articulate those feelings, your levels of emotional well-being will rise, your relationships with others will improve, and your professional potential will increase.
Getting in Touch:
After you have got in touch, I will arrange for us to have a call in which I would like to hear why you want to come to therapy. I am interested in your goals, and what you hope to achieve; and we can discuss how I might be able to help. If following that call you feel that you would like us to work together, we can arrange a first session.

'With Anthony we worked on understanding and expressing my feelings – a whole new vocabulary – something which now feels so simple, but which I never learned growing up.' Sebastian
Training, qualifications & experience
My passion for talking therapy was sparked in my early twenties after I undertook a course of therapy which was life-changing and life-enhancing.
Following graduation from university, I trained as a solicitor and practiced at a leading international law-firm for five years, before starting an advisory consultancy.
I subsequently undertook an Introduction to Counselling and Psychotherapy Programme at The Minster Centre; and studied for and was awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (PGDipPsych) at the University of Roehampton, a course which is accredited by the BACP.
I am experienced in working with a diverse group of clients, and a wide variety of personal challenges and mental health issues.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
