Peter Klein - BABCP Accredited - BSc Psych (Hons), PGDip CBT, MA (Dist)
Welcome to my profile page. I am specialized in treating problems such as Stress,Worry, Anxiety, Psychosis, Depression and OCD. I emphasise the use of Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapies as these offer a wealth of scientific evidence backing their effectiveness.
When getting to know you, I very much emphasize getting an individual picture of your concerns in order to tailor a treatment program towards you. This entails that you will get to know psychotherapeutic principles and techniques that are adapted specifically towards you. The gained knowledge will greatly aid in helping you address your problems in a direct and pragmatic manner.
Due to the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, my clients very often notice a decrease of their problems after just a handful of sessions.
Next to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I also heavily incorporate Acceptance and Commitment- and Compassion Focused Therapy. In addition I also implement findings from Evolutionary Psychology. This amalgamation is very effective in combating problems such as generalized anxiety disorder, low self-esteem, panic disorder, addiction and relationship issues.
I am both based at the world famous Priory Roehampton and at my Richmond practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have BSc in Psychology and MA in Intelligence Research and have successfully completed numerous postgraduate courses in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Further to this I have partaken in many psychotherapy workshops and counseling courses.
I am also an accredited member of the BABCP, which represents the gold standard in the United Kingdom. The BABCP is known for having extremely strict accreditation criteria.
Next to my private practice work, I work at the world famous Priory Hospital in Roehampton and have created numerous treatment programs within the hospital.
I also run the Depression and OCD treatment groups at the Priory.

British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies
The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.
BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I charge £ 95 per hour for face to face and £ 75 for text / video / audio based therapy.
I am accredited with and work with all private insurers.
I am flexible in how to best accommodate individual needs and therefore offer the following services:
Therapy more than once a week (which in some cases increases well-being at a faster rate).
Therapy in German (I am of German nationality).
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have a unique therapy need or request.
The price of such customised therapy may differ from the standard session price.
If you are unsure if you need therapy and require some guidance, feel free to contact me and I can provide you with a free consultation (no strings attached).
