Adult Therapy

What we can help with and what others say about us.




Me and my colleagues see adults with a range of issues related to their mood, work or relationships. We use a range of skills and therapeutic approaches to provide therapy which will enable a person to reflect on their situation, find ways of expressing or understanding the things going on in their life and to develop new skills to help them cope with their situation.

If you decide to see me or my associates, sessions usually start with an exploration of the reasons you wanted to come to therapy and how you would prefer your life to be. We might ask you to fill out a brief questionnaire at start of session to understand your mood better and repeat it again at the end to see how things have progressed in therapy.

If you would like to work on change in-between appointments recommended books to read or skills to practice can be suggested. We will work together to build your confidence and self-esteem with a view to developing hidden strengths to make positive changes happen in your life.

I’m very happy with outcome of my therapy, I feel like a different person now
Miss JA, Bromley

I’m happy I can now see the positive side of life rather than all the negatives. I have also learned not to relate everything to happen back to past events
Mrs TK, Pimlico

I saw several counsellors before seeing Siobhan and you don’t get this sort of therapy from them. I don’t think I would have come through as quickly, or even at all, if it wasn’t for this therapy“.
Mr LK, Clapham

The strategies that were put into place for me helped me to deal with difficult situations. I knew I could always talk to Siobhan when I needed help or advise and she would always understand where I was coming from“.
Ms BJ, Dulwich

Thank you so much for all your help, I’ve finally got my life back
Mr MD, London

I can not recommend Dr McCarthy enough, she has changed my life. She has given me the confidence to move forward and skills which I continue to use every day. Every one around me has noticed a change in me, I am more at ease and a lot less anxious. I have accomplished things I never thought I would be able to. The ‘therapy room’ is comforting and secure, I felt very comfortable talking to her from the first session. Thank you!
E. Jones

I can’t recommend Dr Siobhan highly enough. I wasn’t sure what to expect but over the course of 3 months the transformation has been incredible. I understood that I had one or two issues which I didn’t know or understand how to deal with and move forward. It’s not short of a complete 180 for me in terms of my outlook on life and how I handle situations. Thank you
Mr Holliday
