When life is difficult, therapy can really help.

Welcome to Clinical Partners Counselling and Psychotherapy Services

We all face challenges in our lives from time to time, and therapy can help.

We love talking therapies. A successful course of therapy can and should be life changing.

The evidence says that more important than which therapy you have, is who you have the therapy with. It’s so important that you see someone that you trust, and that you believe can help you find the answers that you need.

We choose our therapists because they have a lot of training and experience, but also because we like them, and we hope that you will too.

If you’re having difficulties and you think that therapy might be helpful, then please call one of our advisors on 0203 326 9160 to discuss how we can help you.

Does psychotherapy and counselling help?

Research has shown that talking therapies are hugely effective and many studies have shown they are as effective as antidepressants and more likely to help long term.

Therapy can work in different ways. Sometimes it helps set you free from difficult experiences you may have had in your past. Cognitive therapies are more focussed on how you process thoughts and feelings now. Either way, successful therapy should help you to reduce difficult thoughts and feelings, and replace them with a happier outlook.


What to expect from a therapy session

Clients normally meet their therapist for 50 minutes or an hour every week, for several weeks. The number of weeks depends on the individual, for some 6 sessions may be enough, for others 20 and some people stay in therapy for several years. Your counsellor or therapist will guide you on this.

The content of the session will differ depending on the type of therapist you see. You may spend the time talking through problems, you may work with your therapist to develop coping mechanisms and strategies or you may use art, drama or music to work through difficulties. You can read more about the types of therapy we offer here and our clinical advisors are available for a friendly, informal chat to help you decide which is best for you.


What is the difference between psychotherapy and counselling?

Lots of people get confused about this and no wonder as there is much debate on this subject between psychotherapists and counsellors themselves!

Psychotherapists tend to train for longer and as a result often work with more complex clients or those who want to have long term therapy (a year or more). However, many counsellors also work with complicated cases and work in depth as well.

Choosing a therapist

One of the most important aspects of starting therapy or private counselling services is choosing the right person to work with as you will need to place your trust in them.

In order for you to feel comfortable enough to talk about difficult things, you need to find someone you feel safe with. But how do you know who is the right person is?

  • Man or woman? You may instinctively choose someone of the same sex as you, but often working with a person of the opposite sex can be really helpful as well.

  • The first session – an initial appointment will allow you to get to know your therapist and get a feel for whether you can build a relationship with them. At Clinical Partners we will help you select someone who is right for you and very rarely do we find people want to change, but if you do, that’s fine – we can help you choose someone else.

  • Ask questions - Don’t be afraid to raise any concerns you have.

  • What type of therapy? Therapists train in different modalities, for instance psychodynamic, humanistic or CBT and finding a modality you are happy to work with is an important step in choosing a therapist. Read our guide on the different types of psychotherapy and counselling to find out which might be right for you.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.

  • SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).

  • I would like to thank the Clinical Partners staff for asking about us. I like to let you know that M's physical and psychological health is great. With my best regards and respect.

  • You have been fantastic at helping T see the help he can get and I am so grateful. Again thank you so much, I really do appreciate the efforts you have put in.

  • Thank you for setting us (and me in particular) off down the road. I will always be grateful to you, and I do feel that you spent a lot of time on my case without much reward.
