Simon Imrie Psychodynamic psychotherapist , E1

Hello, I’m Simon Imrie, Senior Clinician at East London Mental Health. East London Mental Health operates from Shoreditch High Street and specialises in men’s mental health; helping men understand their feelings and so change their lives. Appointments are available weekdays and a variety of times, including evenings.


*****COVID-19 - Initial consultations and ongoing sessions are currently exclusively online or on the telephone. Confidentiality and privacy remain vital and are assured. When social distancing restrictions are lifted or are eased, I will explore with you if you wish to remain working remotely or if you would prefer to meet in person.*****


I offer Psychodynamic Psychotherapy working both with open ended contracts or fixed-term sessions (normally 6-8).  Open ended work allows you to explore your feelings and your behaviours in detail and so come to a deeper understanding of what makes you who you are.  Fixed-term work focuses on one aspect of life with which you might be struggling so greater attention can be aimed at alleviating specific distress.


“I believe men often struggle to ask for help especially help with how they feel and the problems they might face.  It shouldn’t be like that and it doesn’t have to be.”


It’s not always helpful to try and categorise your difficulties with a label and i do not believe in working to understand a diagnosis but in working to better understand a person.  You might group your challenges under a heading and i can help you in the following common areas:


Depression, Anxiety, Relationships, Sexuality, Bereavement, Addiction, Stress.


Training and qualifications

I have extensive experience working with a wide variety of patient groups as I worked for many years for the East London Foundation NHS Trust as well as with Charity and third sector mental health organisations. I am a qualified and accredited Psychotherapist working with East London Mental Health. I have a PG Dip in Psychotherapy from the Westminster Pastoral Foundation, underwritten by Roehampton University and a Clinical Supervision Diploma from the highly regarded Minster Centre in North London.


I am a member of and operate under registration with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).  I also am registered with the Foundation for Counselling and Psychotherapy (FPC). These registrations ensure published ethical standards and the BPC complaints procedure are operated at all times.  


Initial Consultations are for 1.5 hours and cost £80.  

Ongoing sessions last for 50 minutes, take place at the same time each week and cost £65.

Time-limited work costs £70 per 50 minute session.
