People have all kinds of reasons for coming to therapy. Usually, they are suffering because of a challenge or difficulty. Therapists at The Grove believe in high-impact therapy. We believe in harnessing our clients’ inner power to adapt and grow; becoming truer to their authentic self. People who dig into their therapy often go through a process of transformational change. We see this happen time after time. We provide a safe container where you can bring your struggles, so you can thrive in a challenging environment – just like the cactus.
Is The Grove right for you?
Therapy at The Grove won’t be right for everybody – nothing ever is! But we’d love to work with you if:
You passionately want to change
You’re prepared to work for it (with our support)
You’re willing to take the time to make it happen
The Grove specialises in therapy for smart professionals in central London. So if you’d like to see someone and talk things through, we are here to help.
Your insurer could pay for your counselling at The Grove. We are registered with the major health insurance companies including Allianz, Aviva, BUPA, Cigna, PruHealth, Simply Health, Standard Life and WPA. We will explain how to gain authorization, so the bills go directly to your insurer.
Our clients are some of the most interesting, awesome and talented people in the world. People with the imagination, guts and vision not to settle for second best.
If you're based in London, you'll know that working in a city of 15 million people can be a pulverising experience. You could be in finance, management, law, property or media and communications - but what's important is that you need to be on top of your game at work and in your personal life.
Whoever you are, you've reached a crunch point in your life. A time to make changes. If you're reading this, you're in the right place. We can help you deal with the problems that you're facing.
Our advice is simple. Before you make a decision, before you quit your job through stress, get stuck in a cycle of anxiety attacks, end your relationship, or spend thousands more on drugs or sex - let's talk first.
Don't view counselling as a distress purchase. See therapy as something that clever, professional people do to be at the top of their game. As one of our clients recently said "I've invested in my education, equipment, even my professional wardrobe – so why wouldn't I invest in my mental wellbeing too?".

"Just sitting by myself in the sun thinking about stuff and feeling such a surge of happiness that I had to share it with you. You're the architect of this feeling and I'll forever be grateful to you. Nothing I could write in a testimonial will get close to the real thing."
"I wanted to write and thank you again for all the help you have given me over the last year. I feel so much happier and together as a person and your guidance has been crucial in this transition."

"My sessions at The Grove have allowed me to begin to accept myself and to regain a sense of power over what happens to me, and what I can make happen. I have realised that the big, hopeless mess isn't so big, and that with a bit of reflection and open discussion I can untangle it. I find myself being interested by patterns in my behaviour and challenges ahead, rather than scared by them. I leave my sessions with suggestions and approaches to put into practice, and a sense that I can deal with whatever lies ahead. I can focus on enjoying my life again."
