About us

We provide focused, short-term counselling and in-depth, long-term therapy at comfortable consulting rooms in Farringdon. We offer dedicated support to people facing challenges and can help treat most emotional and psychological difficulties. We work with adults of all ages, cultural backgrounds, genders and sexual orientations.

The relationship between counsellor and client (or therapist and patient) is a key element of the treatment we offer. For some people, we simply provide a much-needed opportunity to be heard and understood.

Our approach

Mindful of boundaries, we offer a safe, confidential and reliable place in which people can talk openly about themselves so as to help them understand what might have contributed to their problems. Exploring emotions, thoughts, dreams, memories, behaviour and relationships can help people to change the way they respond to situations. We aim to assist this process by being curious and attentive to links and patterns.

Our approach is based on the understanding that difficult experiences in the past can continue to affect the way we feel and behave in the present. Applying psychodynamic, attachment, humanistic and cognitive concepts and methods, we address both the causes and the symptoms of emotional and psychological distress.

Treatment plans

We respond to enquiries within one working day and we can usually meet within a week. We start with an initial consultation where the reasons for seeking help are discussed. Some background information is always useful too. This appointment gives both parties a chance to get a sense of compatibility and there is no obligation to continue working together. When an agreement is reached to move forward in principle, we recommend a treatment plan, which will either be for six sessions, sixteen sessions or open-ended therapy.

Once the specific terms have been confirmed, the work can begin, usually in the form of weekly, 50-minute sessions held at the same time and place every week. Towards the end of each course of treatment, there is an opportunity to review progress and consider either committing to a deeper treatment plan or working towards an agreed ending.
