We are a London private practice offering a discreet, bespoke service to organisations and private clients in London, our office is a short stroll from Bank Station, Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations. All our therapists are trained at post graduate level in Personal Consultancy - an approach that integrates counselling and coaching that allows clients to have a deeper, wide reaching experience. Research has shown that Personal Consultancy has reduced post intervention levels when compared to another approach.
We specialise in offering help for stress reduction, depression, personal development, sexuality issues, HIV counselling, trauma, executive coaching and have an in house EMDR therapist. We have experience in working with charity executives. We also work with a renowned and well respected addiction specialist who has written programmes for Clouds and The Priory and is a well respected speaker in the field.
We also offer training on a wide range of mental health and personal development issues and can tailor workshops to suit your needs.
At Blackwood we work with forward thinking organisations and private clients to provide cutting edge support. We also help you match yourself with a therapist that meets your needs which we believe is important when faced with a confusing long list of therapists. We offer a sliding scale of fees based on income and have a selection of packages tailored to you.

Member organisations *
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.
