Change is possible

Spectrum, established in 1976, is a London-based centre for psychotherapy providing space for personal enquiry in which people learn to manage all aspects of their lives, develop self-knowledge, resilience and the capacity and skills to solve problems.

Individual Therapy

One of the most common statements people make about their time in individual therapy is how important it is to have somebody there for them over time and on a regular basis. This is an important experience to have and in itself can have a positive influence on our self-esteem and confidence

Couples Therapy

Relationships are always in a state of flux and the process requires new behaviours in response to change taking place. Our goal is to help couples form a basis for relating through cooperation, caring behaviours, understanding, respect, tolerance, resilience, thoughtfulness and a willingness to communicate truthfully.

Family Therapy

Spectrum’s family work involves working with the whole or parts of the current family or the family of origin, as well as parental coaching and dialogue. It provides a safe forum for family members to have their experience of living in the family heard and witnessed.

Group Therapy

Groups offer participants an opportunity to come out of isolation with their issues and to share and compare their experience with others.
