Therapy practice offering counselling & CBT to couples, families and children in Hampstead, North West London

Update: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Policy, Face to Face & Video Sessions continue in January 2022

Coronavirus is an ongoing global pandemic which has affected every one of us in many different ways. The COVID-19 crisis means that during this extraordinary time , many of us may have experienced high levels of anxiety, fear and uncertainty.

We are continuing to offer online video sessions for individuals, couples and families as well as online Mindfulness & Wellbeing Sessions for the workplace which are proving very popular. Thanks to many easily accessible video platforms, including Zoom, Facetime and Whatsapp there is instant access to online talking therapies as an increasingly comfortable and reliable alternative to face to face sessions.

We have a large team of Associate Therapists who are now offering face to face sessions in our Hampstead location as well as continuing to offer online therapy. All therapists will continue to offer online sessions as this is a consistent and reliable method of accessing therapy sessions. As a practice we feel that adopting this hybrid approach to offering therapy sessions is something that will allow therapy to be more easily accessible to everyone.

This is a time when therapy is needed more than ever, as we are all learning to live with Covid 19. The next few months will bring their own new set of challenges, including returning to working from home after briefly returning to the workplace. We will all have to constantly adapt to a constantly changing world with a lack of consistency and predictability.
The last few month have taught us that looking after our mental health is key to managing an ever changing world.
Please contact me by email or text or leave a message if you would like to book a 30 minute free video consultation. Video or phone consultations are with Mandi Simons. I will get back to you promptly to arrange an initial consultation.

Sessions with an Associate Therapist can usually be arranged at very short notice, following an initial phone or video consultation with Mandi Simons.

Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, it is often very difficult to take that first step and finding the right counsellor/psychotherapist may feel overwhelming . There are many therapists offering different services and approaches which can feel very daunting when choosing the right therapist to meet your own unique needs.

I hope I can make this process a little easier for you by meeting you online for an initial 30 minute video consultation (which is free of charge) to help you make the right decision when it comes to choosing a therapist. The consultation provides you with an opportunity to ask questions about different approaches to therapy which will hopefully allow you to feel clearer about the process. Please note that the initial online consultation is only with me, usually offered on a Monday or Thursday afternoon . Associate Therapists may offer a discretionary 10-15 minute initial consultation upon request.

Why are you considering counselling?

You may be considering psychotherapy or counselling for a variety of reasons; it could be due to depression, bereavement, anxiety, relationship difficulties, family issues, low self-esteem, mental health problems or any number of other issues. It may be just because you want someone to talk to in a safe contained space, who is non judgmental.

You may be considering seeing a therapist to seek advice, however therapy is about helping you come to your own conclusions than having the therapist make decisions for you. My role is to help you to gain the confidence and clarity to learn to make the right decisions for yourself.

How can counselling help?

For many people counselling is an opportunity to talk about and explore issues in a safe, contained and non-judgmental space. It is so important to find the right therapist to suit you. For this reason, I offer a 30 minute free consultation so we can meet face to face and you can have an opportunity to ask me questions in person about the way I work or to discuss seeing an associate therapist. Please also look at my 'About me' page to see a video of me, this is often a very helpful way of getting to know me and how I work.

Psychotherapy and counselling work best when you are able to apply the insights you’ve learned during the session to the rest of your week. I may set weekly homework ( if this is something you are comfortable with) this may include writing down important pointers and thoughts that may be troubling you in order to explore certain areas of your life further.
