Initial consultations

We aim to make counselling and psychotherapy a possibility for everyone who wants it. You can book for an initial consultation by yourself online. The initial consultation is for you to discuss directly with one of our senior therapists whether a counselling or psychotherapy is right for you. The Koan Practice tries to offer an immediate response, as we believe that this can relieve distress. The online booking lets you meet your therapist the next day or arrange to talk to the therapist before the meeting.

Committed to the Individual

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.
