Do you have a particular life obstacle that you would like to overcome? Sometimes, seeking help from a qualified therapist who has been trained to actively and attentively listen to you is the best way to put things into perspective. I believe in healing the whole person which includes mind, body and spirit. I will guide you through all of life’s challenges with the attention and care you deserve.

My name is Effie Hicks, a qualified psychotherapist based in Herne Hill, South East London.

I have a Masters degree in psychotherapy and healing and I am a registered member with BACP. I hold private and voluntary sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist with adults, couples, and children.

I work as an integrative psychotherapist providing therapy in a friendly and supportive environment. My approach is psychodynamic, focusing on understanding unconscious processes.

I can offer help with the following:

  • Depression

  • Anger management 

  • Anxiety and stress 

  • Cultural issues 

  • Personal development 

  • Relationships 

  • Self esteem 

  • Abuse 

  • Trauma 

  • Bereavement 

  • Sleep problems 

  • Jungian dream analysis

  • Play therapy (children)

It was the experience of having been a client myself and seen how much I gained from my own therapy, that inspired me to train and qualify as a psychotherapist. Even though making that first step is hard, it is undeniably a step towards healing. I will work with you and support you with an open mind, warmth and understanding as you heal, change and grow.


Get in touch with me today for more information.

I implement effective psychotherapy methods to gradually establish self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that requires participation and investment from the client and therapist alike. Making small changes to self-defeating behaviour and learning to manage and cope with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.
