Simon Good Bsc. (Hons) Psychotherapist & Supervisor UKCP, BPC, CPJA, BAPPS,
Are you feeling stuck in the same familiar patterns and emotions?
Are you in a state of anxiety, or relationship issues?
Do you just need a little help right now?
Worried about alcohol or drugs?
As an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor with over 25 years experience, dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, general sadness and more deep rooted issues, I am aware of the need for people to find a therapist who can offer a discreet, confidential space separate to work and home life. My consulting room is separate to my house in Loughton, situated at the rear, on Spareleaze Hill, with parking outside - and is ideal for clients seeking a therapist near to North East London or South West Essex. I am only seven or eight minutes from Loughton tube station and ten minutes from the M11. I have some spaces during the day off Blackfriars Road, London SE1. 11am to 3pm Just four minutes from Southwark Tube.
As a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with over 25 years experience. I am familiar with most of the causes of human distress. By thinking and talking together with a trained psychotherapist, you may find it easier to understand how past experiences, current patterns of thought and behaviour, or anxieties about the future are causing difficulties in your present life. I have a particular interest and many years experience of alcohol and drug problems.
In addition to my private practice I am also a lecturer at various training organisations as well as a lecturer and supervisor at WPF Therapy, regarded as a centre of excellence.

Choosing a therapist
The key to successful therapy is finding the right therapist for you. However good a therapist is, it is the relationship between the two of you that determines whether you trust them enough, and they come to understand you enough, to help you explore and find solutions for your problem.
We can meet for a single session, to discuss what you are looking for from therapy. Only you can decide whether you are with the right therapist for you. Do not be afraid to ask questions or request further information before making your mind up.
Before agreeing to see a particular therapist, ask yourself:
- would you feel comfortable telling them intimate details of your life?
- do you feel safe with them?
- do you like their manner towards you?
- could you be completely open with them?
