Thank you for visiting the London Psychotherapist website. Professionally trained, qualified and UKCP accredited, I offer psychotherapy, counselling and coaching in London W1. I am also an accredited supervisor to therapists and coaches.

At this challenging time, with COVID 19 bringing unprecedented challenges to us all and making it impossible to offer face-to-face sessions in London, I am working with clients online, using Skype, Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp. These remote sessions are proving to be as supportive, insightful and creative as sessions in person. I am offering affordable rates to support people at this difficult time, based on your ability to pay. Please contact me for more information on Skype therapy / online counselling.

I am also offering online group therapy which can be a particularly effective way of working through your personal struggles and concerns with the support of others. Contact me for details of group sessions which are also priced depending on your ability to pay.

I incorporate different techniques and theories tailored to suit the unique situation of each client or couple. These approaches include gestalt therapy, with its focus on the present; CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy) to identify and challenge distorted thoughts and perspectives and psychodynamic therapy which examines the past and how it has shaped us. Mindfulness, visualisations, role plays and creative experiments are offered to enliven the process with experiential learning providing tools to use outside the sessions. This integrative approach enables the flexibility to work with many different issues and concerns.

Research shows that for therapy to be most effective, it requires a supportive, open and trusting relationship between therapist and client. This is something I value highly and strive to build from the start by setting out a clear path and timescale for the treatment.

Most of my clients are referred or recommended and come with a wide range of issues including:


The first step to finding out whether psychotherapy/counselling might be beneficial is to contact me on 07740 535399 or email simon@london-psychotherapist.co.uk to arrange an initial consultation during which we would discuss the possibility of working together. I will give you an idea of how therapy with me could be beneficial and how the process might unfold. Your call and any communication between us will be treated confidentially.

I’ve always enjoyed your creativity, your ability to go off the beaten path, your generosity. And most of all, I enjoyed your willingness to not just listen, but actively participate by sharing something about you in the process, which showed me the work was not just about myself, but – crucially – about relationships. Your sessions led, unexpectedly, to me taking a very different path in my career and in other areas. I now feel closer to myself, and equipped with a lot more tools to navigate the open sea of life.” Andrea F, London
