Tony Thompson, MPhil, UKCP Registered
Therapy is a safe space where you can find your own voice. The thought of starting therapy can be frightening, which is understandable when you are sharing intimate details of your life with a stranger. As unsettling as it can be, being heard and seen can also bring much relief.
Therapy can be short or long-term. A few sessions (12) may be all you need to focus on a specific issue. You might need more time in open ended therapy to work through something which is more distressing. The process is unique for each person.
The best way to know if therapy would be helpful for you is to arrange a session. During the session you can tell me why you have come to therapy and ask me any questions that you have.
If you have any queries please contact me to discuss them.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified psychotherapist, a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy (AGIP). I am a member of AGIP’s Clinical Committee (I am part of a group of therapists that assess clients and refer them on to AGIP therapists, some to professional members and others to AGIP’s low fee clinic). I supervise trainee therapists at Number 42’s Reduced Fee Service. I was also a sessional therapist at the Refugee Therapy Centre.
My clients range from asylum seekers to middle class professionals. Whatever their differing cultural backgrounds and life stories, they share a common experience of finding aspects of their life difficult to cope with. I provide a haven where they can work through their problems at their own pace.
My work with AGIP and 42’s Reduced Fee Service helps to provide long term therapy to Londoners that need therapeutic help but cannot afford the going rate for therapy.
I adhere to the code of ethics of the UKCP and AGIP.
