About Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods, particularly when based on regular personal interaction, to help a person change their behaviour and overcome problems in desired ways. Psychotherapy aims to improve an individual's well-being and mental health, to resolve or mitigate troublesome behaviours, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions, and to improve relationships and social skills.


Type of Therapy

We provide one-to-one, open-ended or time limited psychodynamic psychotherapy to adults.

What we offer

The London Psychotherapist offers a confidential environment where your thoughts and feelings can be discussed. This safe and confidential space may enable us to understand the factors influencing unhelpful patterns in your life.

Experience tells us that exploring deep feelings can be painful and difficult but it can also be a source of relief and can generate change. However long you require, we are here to try and go on this meaningful journey with you.

Initial consultation

After you contact us, we will call or email you to arrange one or two initial consultations, where we can discuss your needs and the nature of your difficulties. This will help us decide if we could work together therapeutically. This means whether you feel you will be able to bring whatever you need to our sessions and also how our approach could impact your circumstances.

In the initial consultation, we will also talk about the length and frequency of sessions as well as confidentiality, fees and the cancellations policy.


Initial consultation(s) £ 150 (could last up to 90 minutes)
Consecutive 50-minute weekly sessions are charged at £120 per session
Special financial circumstances can be discussed during our initial consultation on a case by case basis
