Mansion House Counselling Practice

Compassion in times of crisis

Therapy is an effective way of dealing with personal problems. It provides a safe environment in which to talk things over and explore your feelings in a non-judgmental setting, often impossible to find elsewhere.

Therapy works by helping you understand how your life experiences are affecting you in the present, influencing the way that you think, and the way that you relate to yourself and others.

It's not easy. I will not tell you what to do. I aim to give you choices. To explore options that you may not have considered.

My approach is called Psychodynamic, which simply means that we work together. I am not limited by any one theory or technique. Instead I work with any and every technique that is relevant to the situation.

I am a professionally qualified and experienced therapist offering help for a wide range of problems and issues. My consulting room is conveniently situated 100 yards from Mansion House tube station.

Everything discussed is confidential. If you are willing to be honest with yourself and prepared to work, you can change your life.

  • What next?

    To arrange an Initial Consultation call me on 020 7760 7541 or email at [email protected]. Monday to Friday sessions are charged at £100 per session. Saturday sessions are charged at £150 per session. Payment is by either cash or cheque at the end of each session. Concessions are available and can be discussed.

    Each therapy session is a weekly 50 minute appointment between client and therapist at the same time, on the same day. The regularity and frequency of appointment is essential to the therapeutic process, so deciding to attend therapy is a commitment that will need careful consideration. The therapy process can last from a few weeks to a year or longer.

    The Therapy Room and my time are reserved for you and you alone at the agreed day and time every week until your therapy ends. For this reason there is a charge of £50 for cancelled sessions. This includes planned holidays. Sessions cancelled by me are not charged.

    All enquiries are treated in confidence. You will find further information on counselling, psychotherapy and my practice in the following pages which I hope you will find useful.


    Points to ponder before the first meeting

  • Why now? What brings you to therapy now and not 6 months ago?
  • What will successful therapy look like? Will you look different? Will you feel different? Will your life have changed, and if so, how?
  • A good therapist will be able to help you experience emotions you may not even know exist. Are you ready to begin what may turn out to be very difficult journey of self discovery?


  • Points to ponder after the first meeting

  • How do you feel about your counsellor?
  • Do you feel listened to?
  • Does your counsellor understand your needs?
  • Do you feel hopeful about the future?
  • Remember, this is about working through your difficulties, and it is important that you feel comfortable.
