Counselling and Psychotherapy Team

Our Ethos

We understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help and also find the right help. Our shared passion is helping people with their psychological wellbeing and we know how important it is to know you will be meeting with a therapist who understands and has experience of the concerns brought to private therapy.

Team members are fully qualified and accredited with at least one of the UK's professional bodies and we also require them to have at least two years private practice therapy experience; Senior Associates have either been with us for at least four years or have over ten years private therapy experience.

Finally, we actively keep our team size between ten and fifteen team members, this  enables just the right amount of knowledge sharing and support ensuring we can offer a consistently high level of expertise.

Our History

Nicholas Rose & Associates was created by Nicholas in 2009 to meet an increasing demand for counselling, psychology ,couples counselling, psychotherapy, adolescents and family therapy services in West London.

Nicholas, as with a number of our team, balances clinical work between private practice and working in a charity. Private practice work enables therapists to provide therapy to those in our society who would otherwise not get help, meanwhile the experience therapists get from working with complex psychological concerns is hugely beneficial for informing private therapy practice.

At the current time our team members work with non profit organisations providing therapy to victims of sexual and domestic abuse, torture and survivors or armed conflicts and those living with HIV. Please see the links to the following: GARAS, STOPSO, HELIOS and Jewish Womens Aid Centre.

Today our patients and clients come to us from the immediate areas of Chiswick and Kensington/Earl's Court, West London and online in the UK. With a growing number of clients coming from Chiswick, Central London and the surrounding areas of Ealing, Brentford, Richmond, Acton, Hammersmith, Kensington and Earl's Court. 

The team is able to provide a comprehensive portfolio of professional counselling and psychotherapy services for adults, couples and families with a choice of male and female therapists experienced in working with a broad range of concerns both in face to face and online counselling and psychotherapy. 

The booking calendar is managed by Lynn Forrester and Renato Cristini and they will arrange the initial assessment.
