How can talking therapies help?

Talking therapies provides professional psychological support for adults across Merton who are experiencing difficulties.

Following the latest government advice around the Coronavirus, we have had to make some temporary changes to how we operate. Please see our Coronavirus response page for full details. 

Talking Therapies remains open, both for our current and newly self-referring clients. We are changing the way we work to telephone only in order to protect our clients and staff.  We ask that clients do not come to Guild house. 

We are taking referrals for talking therapies from Monday 11th May please see below our new telephone triage times.

Based in central Wimbledon close to transport links, we have a team of therapists who are either fully qualified and experienced or at advanced stages of counselling/psychotherapy training.

We take referrals by phone between 9.30am - 12pm on Mondays, 9.30 - 11.30am on Tuesdays, 9.30am - 12.30pm and 2pm - 4pm on Thursdays.

We have been providing professional counselling and psychotherapy services for over 40 years.  We are accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. (click here to download)

We aim to make our Talking Therapies services affordable and subsidise them, charging a sliding scale of charitable rates. We charge from the assessment onwards with the cost of this first appointment being non-refundable.

Please contact the Talking Therapies reception team for more information on current fees.
