A Group Practice for Counselling & Psychotherapy in Central London
Counselling & Psychotherapy in London. Individual & Couples Therapy. Our service is open 7am to 10pm weekdays, & 9am to 5pm weekends.
Who we are
Formed in September 2000, we are a group practice of 18 senior therapists and 10 plus junior therapists. It is modelled like a GP’s Practice, where all of the counsellors & psychotherapists are individual practitioners, and each has particular ways of working and special interests.
What we do
Our core is individual long and short term counselling & psychotherapy. But we also offer Couples therapy & CBT therapy. We meet with over 400 clients every week. The kind of problems that we deal with in counselling are anger & stress, confidence and assertion, sexuality, OCD, anxiety, depression, alcoholism, addiction, & life-decisions. Psychotherapy is at its best with questions about life & love relationships, and feelings of emptiness or lacking purpose.
Making an appointment
appointmentAt the heart of the website is the Counselling Online Application software. Our therapist’s diaries for the coming month are published there, and you can book yourself straight into their diaries for an initial counselling consultation. You can choose the therapist that you would like your first meeting with, and book an appointment on a date & time that is good for you.
Other paths: “Email Application” asks you for your contact details and when you can attend. The administrator will reply the next day with details of possible counselling appointments. If you have questions about therapy or about this group use the “Email Enquiry” form.
What we charge.
A particular concern for persons accessing private psychotherapy in London is the cost. Our fees are transparent and published. Because we charge according to your income, the counselling fee will vary from person to person. Before you book online, we ask you to declare your income, and the website will calculate and tell you how much your fee will be, so that you can be confident before you go onto make an appointment. This is the only counselling service in London that is this clear and upfront about fees, and we believe that this is fair and informative practice. See the research information here. We run a low-fee scheme fot those earning under £20,000.
