About The Grove Practice

Founded over 15 years ago, The Grove Practice is based in the heart of London’s West End, offering counselling and psychotherapy for smart professional people who are facing some kind of difficulty in life – when solutions seem hard to find, emotional resilience is depleted and the usual coping mechanisms just aren’t working any more. We specialise in therapy for couples and individuals – although some of our team are also experienced in therapy for adolescents and families.

If you’re troubled – whether in your personal life or at work – or if you are looking for a way to develop your potential to the full, you may find therapy helpful.

We’re conveniently located near Harley Street in central London W1. The Grove’s premises at 4 Wimpole Street are a five-minute walk from Bond Street and Oxford Street tube stations or buses, with meter parking also available. Our fees reflect a discreet service provided by talented therapists at a convenient and pleasant location in the West End.

Management Team

Robert Rees and Sarah Paton Briggs are directors of The Grove Practice. Before training as psychotherapists, they each held high-level executive positions in international business. So they have a deep understanding of issues that arise in commercial life, as well as a profound grasp of how psychological therapy supports clients in developing a more fulfilling perspective on life and relationships.

When you come along for therapy at The Grove, you can be assured of confidentiality and of the professional standing of our team. All our therapists are affiliated to at least one professional body with a binding code of ethics.

You will also be dealing with a professional therapy organisation which has a legal entity and company registration: The Grove Practice Limited, registered office: 4 Wimpole Street, London W1G 9SH. Company registered in England and Wales: 04597773. VAT registration: 835964683.

Corporate and insurance work

We also work with a number of corporate clients, to bring greater engagement among their senior management teams, or to provide psychological support for senior managers facing personal difficulties or professional challenges. As part of our corporate services, we provide tailored responses to critical incidents such as a traumatic death at work, or the provision of trauma therapy where a high number of employees or members of the public are affected. For these services, a bespoke response is tailored to the specific needs in each case, where The Grove draws from our network of psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, specialists in treating children and families, as well as a team of traumatologists. Therapists and clinicians speaking languages other than English can also be provided.
