We have been providing successful psychodynamic psychotherapy and counselling for twenty years (previously known as LACAP), and have a reputation for providing positive and long lasting outcomes, for a diverse spectrum of clients. 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.
Coaching is different to psychotherapy and counselling in that it focuses on the future and encourages personal or professional development and confidence, whereas psychotherapy and counselling are concerned with emotional or mental health and well-being and pay more attention to what has happened in the past in order to deal with current difficulties.
You can book for an initial consultation by yourself online. Alternatively, you may contact us by telephone, SMS, or email to set up the first meeting. It can be booked for the next day if we have an available therapist.
The Koan Practice is a central London group of qualified and qualifying psychotherapists. The team is currently made up of twelve senior and over ten junior therapists, catering to a broad range of client needs. All of our senior therapists are fully qualified and accredited by major accreditation bodies in the UK. All of our junior therapists are working towards their professional accreditation. We have been providing successful psychotherapy and counselling for twenty years (previously known as LACAP), and have a reputation for providing positive and long lasting outcomes, for a diverse spectrum of clients.
Our therapists are committed to the individual. This means that your psychotherapist is able to offer to see you without having limits on the amount of counselling work that you can do or how often & how long you meet with your therapist. This is what makes therapy with us different from other funded services. In a climate that increasingly promotes brief interventions, our therapists wanted to deal with the question ‘What happens after brief intervention?’ This counselling group practice was formed as a response to the perception that current service provision fails some of those who could most benefit from a prompt, sustained therapeutic intervention.
While up in London, a friend of mine needed urgent intervention, I was very pleased with the speed of the referral and how keen they were to help somebody who did not have English as their first language, would definitely recommend them.

The reduced cost therapy scheme at The Koan Practice helped me out in the most difficult period of my life and I was very happy to have support when I was in great difficulties, on a financial level as well as mental and so on. It was really good to see every week the same therapist to build trust, and I found that rather than a therapy we were co-...

I have been working with your 4 for over a year and have found the sessions invaluable. The open, honest and supportive environment has enabled me to discover how to overcome anxieties and challenges in my life. I have been on a long journey from the first session and I can’t thank smego enough for the help she has given me and would definitely r...
The service I received was excellent and has helped me enormously. Most of the time I feel like a different person
When I met my counsellor I wasn’t sure if counselling could help me but I had nowhere else to go. The first few sessions where painful, I think I spent most of that time crying. But as each session passed I began to understand why I was feeling the way I was. Together we found solutions to why I felt the way I did. As something new surfaced, my t...
I am only three weeks in. But I needed to remark on the efficiency, politeness, and flexibility of these people. Although the first counsellor I met was not for me, I was quickly introduced again to another, and this is a guy that I feel I can trust and work with....
