Nick CaldecottIntegrative psychotherapist
I am an experienced psychotherapist in private practice. Previously, I was in-house therapist in a large GP practice in north London.
I tend to think of therapy as an active process. Clients often come with the need to address unwanted thoughts, feelings or behaviour. Change - or the possibility of change - can be approached in two ways that work together: 1) a profound understanding of the underlying context that a client brings to therapy, and 2) close attention to how therapist and client are communicating in the session.
My practice is integrative, meaning that I draw on ideas and principles from a variety of practitioners. But no theory or concept supersedes the learning I derive from sitting with an individual. This is what therapists mean when they talk about tailoring the work to each client.
Prior to my psychotherapy training, I worked as a theatre, radio and television actor. I am interested in working with clients who seek to engage (or re-engage), personally or professionally, with a creative life. I have also worked as a consultant to the market research industry, and my practice includes clients seeking to address impairments in work/life balance.
I recommend a minimum of 12 sessions; I also enjoy working with longer term arrangements. I am registered with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy and adhere to its ethical principles and professional codes of conduct.
OnlineI also provide my services online.

Types of therapy
Face to face fees are £70 per session; online fees are £60 a session. I offer a 30-40 minute initial assessment via telephone, which is free of charge. This allows me to understand more clearly what brings you to therapy, and gives you the chance to ask any questions.
