London Counselling & Therapy Service is based on the work of Dr. Werner Kierski, who is a counsellor and psychotherapist with over 15 years experience of clinical experience. He is a senior accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) as well as a member of Britain’s leading association for cogntive behaviour therapy. Dr. Werner Kierski is registered with most major private health insurers.
Dr. Werner Kierski draws from a wide range of professional experiences. He is a longstanding member of the therapy team at London’s leading private mental health clinic, the Capio Nightingale Hospital (link). Prior to that he has worked for a range of other organisations, including the Medical Foundation, which is a highly specialist service to support people who have survived torture. He has worked in residential addiction treatment, with survivors of childhood abuse and in other service settings. Like all therapists, who want to offer highest service levels, he is in regular supervision with a supervisor who has many years of experience.
In addition to his clinical work Dr. Werner Kierski has held a number of teaching posts at several leading institutions, including Anglia Ruskin University, the Open University, the Minster Centre for Integrative Psychotherapy and others. He is currently offering academic supervision to doctoral students. Apart from that he has also held the post of editor-in-chief with Contemporary Psychotherapy, the leading international online journal for psychotherapy.
Outside of his activities as a psychotherapist and counsellor he works with wolves. This work helps him to understand much better how questions of anxiety, survival, communication with others and resilience are interconnected.

Medication and Hospital Treatment
Although psychological therapies do not rely on medication, we are able to refer you to a trusted consultant psychiatrist to discuss any medication needs. Additionally, should you feel that you need more intense daily therapeutic support, for example, when you are experiencing a severe crisis, then we can refer you to London’s leading private mental health hospital for day care or in-patient support
Our service also offers phone and Skype-based support.
