We are a practice of qualified psychologists, counsellors and coaches supporting individuals, couples and families with current or longer-term personal, relationship or work-related issues.
Co-founded in 2011 by experienced psychotherapists Ellie Spruell and Rob Finley, our centre moved from King’s Cross to its present location on the City Road in Islington, North London, in 2013.
Our practice is a spacious Georgian townhouse with high ceilings, meaning our rooms are lighter and brighter than your average therapy rooms. We’re only a short walk from Angel tube station and in a convenient location for clients and therapists alike.
We are ideally located to numerous transport links. For further information on how to get to City Road Therapy, please click here.
About our founders
I’m Rob, a UKCP and BACP accredited humanistic psychotherapist with more than 15 years’ experience as a counsellor. I trained in transactional analysis psychotherapy and graduated in 2002. Since 2008, I’ve also practised mindfulness meditation and this influences how I work with my clients.
I’m a UKCP registered integrative psychotherapist and, since 2005, have been working with adults and teenagers in schools, universities and private practice. I have a warm, non-judgemental and philosophical approach, and help my clients make more sense of their experience, feel better able to cope, sidestep old patterns and identify new possibilities.
As well as being a psychotherapist I am a trainer of other therapists, and I run writing groups for people interested in using writing to help them explore and expand their lives.
