I’ve been going to Philip for almost 6 months now and couldn’t recommend him enough. He instantly made me feel comfortable and put me at ease as soon as I walked through the door. Philip has helped me tremendously with both my professional and personal life. He’s given me small assignments to do between sessions which has really helped me moving forward, he’s even lent me some of his own books that he thought would help me. I look forward to growing more as a person, with Philips help!
I was very sceptical to begin with, as i’d never had therapy before. Philip provides a completely non judgemental environment where i could relax and be completely open. He has helped me manage, control and understand my emotions much better. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking help!
During my time spent with Philip I found his help invaluable. His style is very relaxed and 'current'. Speaking to Philip on a weekly basis was like chatting to a good friend in a pub, but a friend that listens intently and is able to give perspective to your own thoughts. Throughout my sessions I never felt like I was pressured into continuing for the sake of it, and only when we both agreed that the time had come to cease was that option exercised. The door has been left open should I wish to continue in the future. Thanks for all your support and advice, your guidance has helped me feel positive about the future, and given me a place of solace during turbulent times. I wish you all the best.
I cannot recommend Philip enough. I initially contacted Philip expecting a quick fix to help me navigate a tough period in my life. He not only helped me identify and overcome that initial problem, but I have come to understand and explore more areas of my life which were hindering me and through working with Philip, I am able to implement lasting change which has changed my life for the better. Philip provides a friendly, safe and non-judgemental space unlike any other. After being sceptical of therapy and seeking a quick fix, two years later I still see Philip to maintain my general wellbeing and to continue to better myself without feeling pressured to stay. Philip offers no ‘quick fix’ solutions, only hard work, understanding and dedication to his clients.
I have been working with Phil at Therapy in London for over a year for coaching. Phil has provided an excellent service in that time. I have made steady progress with my personal and professional development, which is in no small part due to Phil’s patience and flexibility using different coaching styles and different (integrated) therapeutic approaches, in a safe and comfortable environment. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an effective business coach or therapist.

How Therapy Helps
You likely live in a way that is comfortable, but sometimes that ‘comfort’ can be detrimental to your happiness. This originates from years of past experiences which may have been helpful growing up, but are now outdated.
These outdated models can lead to feeling disconnected, confused, anxious and depressed. You may think ‘I used to be happy and nothing’s changed, so maybe it’s my fault?’
Counselling helps by uncovering the models established throughout your life so that you can start to assess if these ways of living are helping you live in the present. We can then start to look at new ways to live which are more congruent with who we are now, rather than who you were years ago.
Therapy can help to relinquish issues in your life by getting to know your underlying thoughts and feelings. Promoting lasting change, resilience and a happier, more content life ahead.
