My name is Simon and I work as a Psychotherapist in Private Practice in London. I can offer therapy online or face to face at my office in Hammersmith on a short term or long-term basis depending on your goals.
We have all recently had to face the turmoil of COVID-19. For some of us it meant feeling the loneliness of extended isolation, the fear of uncertainty for the future or possibly anger at the effects it had on our close relationships. Therapy is a healing way of finding your true self and reflect on what's really important in your life post pandemic.
Clients who come to me for help usually have high levels of anxiety or depression and find themselves in repeating patterns within their relationships or at work that make them unhappy. I would offer you a safe, containing space where you could talk about and explore anything that’s difficult or overwhelming.
We all have emotional needs and problems often arise when those needs are unmet. I would carefully explore which of your emotional needs were unmet during your childhood and possibly in your present life. I would help you process any difficult feelings you may regularly experience whether that be overwhelming fear, persistent sadness, crushing pain, paralysing grief or problematic anger or rage. Once these feelings are accepted and integrated, healing can take place and your life can flow again.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as an integrative therapist and hold two diplomas in Counselling. This included training in Schema Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Person-centred Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I have also trained in Group Psychotherapy and Narrative Therapy for Addiction Treatment. I worked within a clinical team for 6 years delivering individual therapy as well as co-facilitating a number Psychotherapy groups helping clients with attachment issues, anger management and addictions. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and The International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST).
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Research indicates that the best predictor of therapeutic change is the strength of the therapeutic relationship. Everyone is different and has life experiences that are unique. I will work with you in a collaborative way so that you can feel enough trust and safety to talk about things that you may never have been able to previously.
