Counselling and Psychotherapy at Central London
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.

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....
I’d been depressed for a long time when I started counselling and had a few times therapy before which hadn’t helped all that much. It seemed to help just getting to talk about what depression is like for me. I didn’t know counselling would be like that. Sometimes it was hard to talk about it all and I wasn’t sure about all the feelings whi...

Since the beginning, the Koan Practice has helped me to regain my confidence and trust. They are very supportive people. If someone lacks confidence or trust, as a client I would strongly recommend this service to others. It is nice to feel understood and to be accepted for what you have gone through. I have been down many roads, and this is the be...
