Windy Dryden
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Private CBT Sessions

I have a small private practice in Central London where I see adults in individual or couples therapy. The following are my specialities:

  • The emotional disorders (i.e. anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, hurt, unhealthy anger, jealousy and envy)
  • Relationship problems (e.g. difficulties in forming or sustaining relationships, dealing with conflict in relationships)
  • Self-discipline problems (e.g. procrastination, difficulties in maintaining  healthy lifestyle patterns, problems in persistence)

How Do I Make an Appointment?

You can telephone me on 020 7486 3034 and leave a message on my answer machine. I will call you back as soon as possible.

Are You Accredited as a Therapist?

Yes, I am. I am accredited with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), the Association of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (AREBT), and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am also registered as a Counselling Psychologist with the Health Professions Council (HPC).

What is Your Referral Policy?

I am happy to take referrals or self-referrals. If you are covered by private health insurance you will need a referral from a GP or a psychiatrist and it is always advisable to check with your insurance company first. As my contract is with you, direct settlement of fees will be made and you will need to seek reimbursement from your insurance company.   Receipts will, of course, be provided.

How Long Do Sessions Last?

Sessions last for 50 minutes.

How Long Does Therapy Last?

While this is a frequently asked question, it can only be answered after I have met you and found out what problems you are seeking help for and what you want to achieve from therapy.  I am happy to discuss this issue with you after I have carried out an initial assessment.

What are Your Fees?

Fees are available on request

Do You Have a Cancellation Policy?

Yes, I do. Like most therapists, I have a 48 hour cancellation policy which I adhere to strictly with the exception of a personal tragedy.
