In crisis and need to seek help right now?
Don't hesitate in accessing key support services
I try to arrange a consultation for therapy as soon as possible; however, in the event that you may need immediate support, please consider the following services:
If you are feeling suicidal, there are people you can talk to who want to help you find some breathing space:
• Call Samaritans 24-hour support service on 08457 90 90 90
• Go to, or call, your nearest accident and emergency (A&E) department and tell the staff how you are feeling
• Contact NHS 111
• Make an urgent appointment to see your GP
Seeking therapy. How I can help you find your way
If I am not able to accommodate you in my schedule at London Marleybone W1, London Victoria SW1 or London Moorgate EC2, I have a close network of psychotherapists I can refer you to.
I may also refer you to other support services like CBT ie. if you have a phobia, which may be more appropriate for your needs.
I am happy to discuss problems around 'addiction' and the possibility of working together alongside your attendance at a recovery programme.
