Group 9

Carefully tailored therapy

From everyday worries to more complex psychological difficulties, our team is here to help you find the right therapist and treatment approach for you. We take great care matching you to a psychologist who we believe is best aligned to your needs.

Group 11

Best treatment outcomes

We only offer therapies that are proven to be effective so you get to experience relief from your symptoms in the fastest possible time.


Whatever support you’re looking for, we can help. Our psychologists and psychiatrists are trained to treat a wide range of issues from low mood, stress and anxiety to more complex mental health difficulties. We can provide sessions on an individual basis, for couples, groups and families, alongside offering a range of specialist assessments.

Children & Adolescents

Just like adults, children and young people face challenges from time to time. If you’re concerned about your daughter or son, our team is here to help. The sooner they receive the right support, the better their chances of making a speedy recovery. Our child psychologists and psychiatrists are able to provide a wide range of specialist services for children and young people including individual therapy, family therapy, psychiatry, educational psychology and specialist assessments, depending on your child’s needs and age.
Therapies & Treatments
Therapy comes in lots of different shapes and sizes. Certain approaches to therapy are better suited to certain issues. Likewise, some people naturally resonate with some approaches more than others. All of our psychologists are trained in multiple therapies which means that they can adapt their approach according to your needs.
Clinical Outcomes
We always strive to improve the experience of our clients and the care that we provide. To help us achieve this, we regularly collect clinical outcome data from our clients to assess their experiences and the impact of their therapeutic journey with us. Clinical outcomes allow us to measure changes in health, function and quality of life from our care. Constant review of our client focussed clinical outcomes helps establish a standard against which we continuously evaluate and improve our clinical care.

If you’re currently on medication, have been on medication in the past or we believe you could benefit from it, we may recommend that you have a consultation with one of the psychiatrists at the clinic. There are a range of medications that can be prescribed to help relieve your symptoms and support your recovery.

Therapy can be delivered either in-person or online, depending on what works best for you. You may start having your sessions online but decide that you’d like to have the occasional session in-person – or visa versa. Either way, we will always work to accommodate to your needs and wishes.

Athena Lazaridou

Athena is a Pilates instructor with 8 years’ experience in the field. After completing a Power Pilates Mat Certification in Athens, she went on to complete the Full Comprehensive Classical Pilates Certification with Equinox in Kensington.  She has been teaching Pilates at Equinox for the past 6 years in addition to her own private clients who she trains both face to face and virtually.

Athena has a passion for helping people get stronger and fitter as well as helping those recovering from injury regain their strength and mobility.  Over the years, she has worked with athletes to incorporate Pilates into their training and improve performance. Athena has also worked with prenatal and postnatal women who may be experiencing depression or other mental health difficulties and used Pilates to facilitate a positive impact on their mental health.

Athena is very passionate about improving physical and mental well-being and has recently incorporated Sound Healing into her work, as she believes it to be one of the best ways of ‘letting go’ and releasing stale energy whilst increasing greater self-awareness.
