William Conant

I have years of practice working as an Integrative, Psychosexual and Relationship counsellor, with a wide breadth of experience including working within the NHS, the charitable sector and in private practice with individuals and couples. 

My original training at Roehampton University in Integrative counselling has given me the skills to integrate psychodynamic, existential and humanistic principles in helping to best create a secure and safe environment in which to create a therapeutic alliance. Thus allowing a safe space in which to work through difficult emotions and feelings in order to help clients to overcome their issues.

My own personal interests have led me to complete the London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship therapy. This has allowed me to work with individuals and couples struggling with communication, relational and sexual issues. 

I have spent two years working as a psychosexual and relationship therapist at Dimbleby Cancer Care within Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. This has given me a particular interest in working with individuals and couples whose relationship has been negatively impacted by illness.

Qualifications and Memberships include:

BSc Integrative Counselling (Roehampton University).

London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy.

Registered Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

Tasha Colbert

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist with 16 years experience of working with clients. I also supervise therapists, as well as coach professionals privately and within organisational settings.

My approach is integrative, meaning that I draw on a range of approaches with a special interest in working with the body, which is often a barometer for our emotional and mental state. I believe that psychotherapy can help draw out our hidden strengths and resources and I have found that working with the body – alongside verbal therapy – to be an effective way to uncover solutions to our problems, often in direct and surprising ways.

I offer an intial session to clarify what you want to gain from therapy, and whether my approach is right for you.

I have extensive experience of working with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Body Image issues
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Parenting challenges
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • balancing demands of home and work life

My approach is non-judgemental, supportive and creative, and rather than telling you what to do, I will work with you to overcome challenges you are facing.  As I do not believe that ‘one way fits all’, I will tailor my approach to meet your needs. I draw from the following approaches, but do not use all of these with all clients: body psychotherapy, mindfulness, gestalt work, psychodynamic approaches, movement psychotherapy, somatic experiencing, systemic NLP and CBT. 

I have also worked for many years within school settings, where I provide counselling and coaching for parents, and a supportive space for teachers. 

I am registered with UKCP (United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy) and abide by their code of conduct. I regularly attend training courses to further my skills, as part of my continued professional development.
