We're delighted to be opening a student clinical placement for the first time. This is open to student counsellors enrolled on a Level 4 Counselling Diploma (or higher) that has been BACP, UKCP or NSCP accredited.

Our Mission

To do one thing: counselling. To do it as well as we can, and to do it forever.

We're a small team of independent therapists who believe in open-ended, Person-Centred counselling. We want to build a sustainable, ethical alternative to the NHS, third sector and private services.

Childhood Psychology
"I’ve had a couple sessions with Tom now and I can’t wait to do more. He is incredibly warm, kind hearted and clearly in this job for the right reasons. His passion is clear and his values are in the right place. This is also a far more affordable service than I’ve seen by far."

"Charlotte is an amazing therapist. She doesn't try to give me the solution, she helps me find my own. I have felt better in each session."

"Charlotte's such an amazing therapist, she will listen to you and never judges you with anything, you can be yourself around her, she will give you all the time in the world just so you would say anything in your mind, she will not tell you what to do or what not to do but she will give you some advices, she’s also such a sweetheart and she gives you positive energy."

"I never knew how much I needed therapy until I started it. After a few months in I’m extremely happy I took this journey, and very glad I found a great therapist. Whom has helped me with problems on the forefront of my mind and those I had repressed or not even acknowledged."

"I looked forward to my weekly sessions with Charlotte. She gave me great advice and pointers how to get things back on track. I'm putting her advice into my daily routine and so far the results are uplifting and very positive."
