Luke Row, MBACP
23 Austin Friars
Hello and welcome,
If you're here, chances are your previous ways of coping aren't working anymore.
- You might be experiencing unexplained anxiety and try to avoid it at all costs.
- In relationships you often second guess yourself and wonder why you are like the way you are.
- You could be thinking about ways of escaping your current situation; running away, relationship breakup, leaving your job, you might have even thought about suicide.
- You might be binging on Netflix, food, alcohol, online gaming or drugs to escape the reality you find yourself in.
- You may have always felt like you aren't "enough"; thin enough, attractive enough, a good enough child/parent, good enough at work - the list can go on.
I'm here to tell you that you don't have to suffer anymore...
Talking to someone who is trained to listen can help alleviate suffering and help you toward finding fulfilment in life. Often it is our autopilot that takes over the controls and counselling can help you garner greater self-awareness to help break the cycles of behaviour that may have been repeating from an early age.

"I was pleasantly surprised by my therapy sessions with Luke. At the start, I went in with the mindset that I had a problem to be cured and Luke would provide the fix. As it happened, that wasn’t the case and I learnt a great deal in the process. Sometimes you need to just get things off your chest, sometimes you need to understand the things that lead to your problem and other times it could be something totally different. The main thing for me is I have better self-awareness that helps me not only understand my own behaviour but enables me to appreciate different perspectives. I’m very grateful to Luke for his objectivity and approachability and would recommend therapy with him." - John 29, London
”I have spent the better part of 3 years seeing Luke for counselling and I’ve never had a counsellor that’s been quite so understanding. Even at my worst points he knew the right thing to say even when I wasn’t willing to hear it. I was able to open up and really explore certain issues with him and I’m really grateful for the support he gave me. If I need counselling again I’m definitely going back to Luke.” - Samantha 26, Surrey
"When I started my sessions with Luke, he tailored his approach to my needs and circumstances in a very professional way, genuinely looking to get the best outcome of our sessions. Our discussions were always very open and insightful and challenged me in a positive way. He is very reliable and understanding. I felt very good during and after our sessions, during difficult times as well; it was a space for sharing and reflecting. I would recommend Luke to people like me, who want to find a similar space and explore it with some guidance." - Ana 24, London
