Professional face-to-face & online Therapy in London

City Road

Welcome. We are a community of experienced psychotherapists, counsellors and coaches providing talking therapies to individuals, couples and families across the UK.

Come to us for a safe and confidential space in which to navigate life’s challenges and improve your mental health, be it online via Zoom / Skype or face-to-face from our comfortable rooms in Islington, North London.

You can either choose the therapist yourself or you can let us help you find a good match.

Who we are

Like our clients, our therapists come from all walks of life and like us, they value individuality, diversity, compassion and integrity.  All are richly experienced in supporting people with current stresses or longer term struggles.

Our therapists are trained to help you explore and better manage your thoughts, behaviours and relationships.  While lots of people have heard of CBT, we offer many styles of therapy to suit the different personalities of clients that contact us.

You can read about each therapists’ training and approach in our therapists directory and contact who you feel most drawn to.

Who we help

We are generalists, which means we are trained to help with a wide range of issues – personal, relationship or work related.

We offer therapy to adults, couples, children and families on a short or long term basis.

Anxiety, depression, loneliness, life transitions and relationship issues are some of the most common reasons people seek our help. But we also see people for reasons that are harder to define; feeling unhappy, stuck or general concerns about wellbeing, for example.

Find out about other common issues we help with.

Services we offer

Online Skype / Zoom therapy so wherever you are, you can have access to therapy.

What is therapy for?

You may know exactly what it is that’s troubling you, but some things are harder to put into words.  They might include:

  • A feeling or behaviour that won’t leave you be and it’s causing difficulties in your life and relationships
  • You feel lost or confused about your identity and your place in the world
  • Something traumatic may have happened; it could be the end of a relationship, an accident or assault, bullying or a bereavement, and you’re struggling to overcome it
  • You are turning to unhealthy behaviours, like drinking or overeating, perhaps to numb a feeling or memory.

Looking for a therapist but not sure where to start? We can help

If you want to find a therapist but you don’t know where to begin, you’re too busy or you’d just appreciate some guidance, we can help you refine the search.

Tell us more about what you’re looking for and give us an idea of days and times of day you would, ideally, like to see someone. (As well as evening, we are open for early and mid morning sessions, afternoon and weekends.) We will do our best to match your preferences and we will send contact details of City Road therapists for you to consider. Occasionally we will offer alternatives if we can’t provide an exact match, as many of our therapists run busy private practices.  We will respond to your request for an ’email response’ on the next working day.

Please be aware that City Road Therapy is not a crisis service. If you do need immediate support, please contact the Samaritans who offer a 24 hour support line.  You can call them for free on 116 123 or email

Because our building is a period property, we are sorry to say that the space is not wheelchair friendly.
