How We Work:We are currently only offering virtual therapy appointments. During our first meeting will be to look at your history and needs/goals/expectations to see what will work best in your specific case. Our approach is to start with immediate crisis management treating symptoms to stabilise the functioning and reduce distress. This is followed by a formulation of your particular needs and planning ahead. The meeting will be with the person/s needing support; that is those suffering or a family member that wants to know how to support them. It is essential that couples sessions need to include both parties in each weekly session. It is not possible to change clients during a process; from carer to sufferer or change partners. The first meeting is to assess the issue and their needs to develop an individualised approach. If we decided to work together, we usually agree to a further 3 sessions to see if we work well together. During this review process, we formulate a future plan around the difficulty and what is realistic to achieve. Usually, we would meet weekly at the same time in person initially, but this can vary as the therapeutic process develops.
If there is not currently a regular time available, there is usually space for a first meeting to assess your needs and if our service is a good match for you. It is crucial to ensure that our expectations are well aligned and that you feel we could build an effective working relationship. We will then let you know as soon as a regular time becomes available. Historically, waiting for a time to become available can take several weeks, depending on your flexibility.

- I started therapy with Kael nervously due to experiences I’d had in therapy previously. He was able to ease me into the process at the right pace for me.20/04/2023
He also appears to build a good rapport with the service users he works with, and I have seen them benefit.
Kael very professional and has a lot of experience in the field of psychology. I observed his work and he is outstanding with service users.
I can always trust his clinical opinion. I saw closely huge number of clients improving in his systematic care. I have no doubt referring him new clients again.
Kael Cockcroft had been my mental health team colleague for several years. I value his professional approach, reliability, perceptiveness and capacity to think.
Kael is an inspiring clinician, and I would have the utmost trust in his ability to facilitate others in their journey towards change and growth.
I worked with Kael as part of his mental health team. He has a robust knowledge-base which he uses with great consideration and thought for his clients.
He is skilled in and works in the specialist approaches of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness Approaches, Mentalization Based Therapy and Schema Focussed Therapy.
Kael is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist skilled in Pyscho-dynamic Psychotherapy and coaching. Kael also saves and enriches lives.
I no longer fear life, I no longer wake frightened by the thought of the day ahead, of who I am or who I may have hurt with unkind and cruel words.
I am in my 60’s and it is the psychotherapeutic time with Kael that has enabled me at last, to regard myself with kindness and understanding.
Kael’s empathy, insights, and skill in recognising and determining the essence of my fears and my sadness, have meant that through kindness, open-mindedness and clarity, he has allowed me to explore and understand those fears.
Kael has enabled me to find myself and to become the person I could always be from the muddled, angry and frightened person I was.
I am happy to highly recommend him as a counsellor, especially for those working in creative fields.
Kael’s methods draw from various schools, he is especially adept at knowing when to step in with a strong point that can resonate with you at exactly the right moment, something i found more general humanist counsellors lacked.
My time with Kael has been really transformative. From the first time I spoke with him he was making such accurate predictions of my behaviour I immediately understood that this is someone with a great depth of knowledge and experience working with artists and creatives.
I came upon Kael as I was looking for someone with more expertise with my condition and an understanding of how the functional life of an artist/creative can be radically different from other people’s and thus requires a specific kind of counsellor who understands this.
I am an artist who suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder, which can be frighteningly complex for many therapists to deal with. Previous experiences with humanist person-centered counsellors had found me going round in circles.
Kael is very professional and highly recommended.
Whether meeting face to face or telephone appointments, Kael has always been able to successfully get me unstuck and move me forward in ways I would never have imagined.
I have worked with Kael at various stages over many years when I needed to overcome or understand many issues or obstacles I was struggling with.
I always appreciated his perspective and he knew the subject matter much better than most.
Kael provided me with fantastic support during a very difficult time in my life.
Kael is was kind, patient and warm, and I felt safe talking to him, and I haven't felt that way with other therapist before.
I honestly wish I could have seen him more often. Having tried for a long time to find the right support, I feel really good knowing I could reach out to him again if I felt I needed that again.
As a twice exceptional man with pretty intense childhood and early life trauma and felt I was able to open up more and more over time and work through different aspects with Kael at my own pace.
Working with Kael was really wonderful. I felt very supported and helped by our work together.
Dr Alecia works with a broad range of psychological conditions, we have participated in Mentalisation training, supervision and programme delivery together confirming her expertise in working with people struggling with disorders of personality.
Dr Anderson has consistently proven to understand the needs of her clients as well as effective directions for treatment.
I have worked closely with Dr Anderson for a number of years in different therapeutic contexts. I can recommend with full confidence her professionalism, skill and caring.
Each session feels like a safe space and I can’t imagine not going to these sessions because they have improved my life considerably.
I’ve seen progress from the first session and I have breakthroughs pretty much in every session.

I appreciated Kael's support and guidance, and particularly him taking the time to walk me through explanations of the theory behind what I was going through. I felt able to be vulnerable, but also responsible for my own growth and emotions.
He is very sharp and knowledgeable in how to deal with gifted patients. He was of great help in sorting out a number of work, family and relationship issues.
