The Brixton Practice

The Brixton Practice is a new counselling and psychotherapy service situated in the heart of Brixton. We offer individual, couples and group therapy. All practitioners, whilst varying widely in background, experience and training, work from one consistently supported research outcome:

IT IS THE QUALITY OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE THERAPIST AND CLIENT THAT PREDICTS SUCCESSFUL OUTCOMES

This aligns with the fundamental psychological principle,

AS HUMANS OUR MOST PRIMITIVE AND IMPORTANT UNIVERSAL NEED IS TO BE IN RELATIONSHIP

The practice is a one-minute walk from Brixton tube station at Tunstall Studios, 34-44 Tunstall Road, SW9. There are 4 consulting rooms of various sizes which provide appropriate and confidential space for the different services offered.

If you would like to book an appointment you can request a free initial consultation where your needs will be assessed and next steps discussed, including offering therapist recommendations. Alternatively, you can go to Practitioner profiles and book directly with your chosen therapist.

Testimonials

After 10+ attempts to find a therapist that I felt comfortable with, a friend finally recommended Nathan, and I'm so glad they did. I attended regular sessions with him for over 3 years, and he helped me understand and work through my problems. Friends and family say I'm like a different person, and I've never been happier.

Testimonial 3

I have worked with Nathan for over two years and it has been a profoundly healing & growthful experience; I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking Counsel.

Nathan's compassionate professionalism has helped and guided me through some troubling times, it is a great relief and comfort to know he is there each session.
Working with Nathan is one of the most sensible and rewarding decisions I've made in adult life.

Testimonial 2

I have been meeting with Nathan weekly for nearly four years. He has helped me through a very difficult time following a traumatic event. Building on that process we then began to explore a number of issues that had been ‘hidden’ for a long time and finally started to surface.

Nathan is extremely empathetic and easy to talk to. I am now in a position where I feel grounded, content and resilient. Perhaps most importantly, I have developed a very good relationship with myself and feel confident with the tools I now have to deal with life challenges. I’m grateful to Nathan for guiding me through this process and making positive change happen.

I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say the work that we have done, and continue to do, together is having a profound and life-changing impact.

Coming to Therapy

You might feel the need for therapy for a wide range of reasons, but fundamentally it is our relationship with ourselves, others, and the world around us that lies at the core of our psychological well-being. Coming to therapy can help you better understand how to improve these relationships.

It can feel frightening and anxiety provoking to seek out professional support. After all the idea of speaking with a stranger about your vulnerabilities is an unusual concept to imagine.

Taking the step to talk to a therapist can be an extremely relieving experience that offers an opportunity for growth and change. You will be received non-judgementally with compassion, underlined by the fundamental idea that:

EACH AND EVERY HUMAN BEING IS VULNERABLE AND REQUIRES SECURE RELATIONSHIPS TO PREVENT VULNERABILITY FROM BECOMING OVERWHELMING.

You may require a short-term therapy; perhaps to process a recent difficulty or situation, or longer-term support to work through deeper engrained complexities.

In all circumstances therapy is offered open-endedly, with you deciding when you are ready to finish.

Typically, therapy is weekly or fortnightly. Click below to find out more about individual therapist offerings or to request an initial free consultation.
