Simon Ziff, PgDip (Addiction Psychology and Counselling),MBACP, Therapist
I am a qualified, experienced therapist, counsellor and BACP registered member. I work with clients suffering with addiction, anxiety, depression and relationship issues. I offer a warm and empathetic approach in a comfortable, intimate and confidential environment.
I both trained and subsequently worked full time at the North London Priory Hospital, working and learning from some of the most highly skilled specialists and therapists in therapy and treatment and I am trained in the Pia Mellody Post Induction Therapy model (from the Meadows for healing and resolving developmental and childhood trauma).
Life can bring its struggles which, for many can lead to the above issues. The impact of our behaviour and anxiety often tips from being manageable to suddenly interfering with daily life, affecting you, your family, your work and the people around you. Sometimes we may not even think we have a problem, 'i'm just doing too much right now' you might tell yourself. If you can relate to any of these situations, then let me help.
I specialise in helping my clients who are experiencing problems relating to drug addiction, alcohol dependency, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, anger, feeling sad, childhood trauma and many other addictions.
As destructive an illness as addiction can be, there is a way out of this dark hole and making that first call for help can be the beginning. Addiction comes in all forms, whether it be alcohol, drugs, food, sex, love, shopping, exercise, anger issues, work, self-harm, gambling, low self-esteem issues or co-dependency. It is an illness that can leave an individual totally powerless over their behaviour and thoughts. There is however, a way out!
If you are worried that you, a member of your family or friend is being affected by any of the above issues, then please contact me.

Individual Member BACP
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.
