The Grove Practice

There is a talented team of therapists working at The Grove, each running their own private practice.

Each of our directors shown here is an Accredited Therapist – Sarah Paton Briggs – Robert Rees – Elliot Davis. Psychotherapy appointments are available at The Grove with Sarah or Robert or Elliot, click here to see availability and make an online booking for an initial appointment.

We can also make a referral to the other therapists listed below.

All therapists working at The Grove are accredited, which means they have attained a high level of professional recognition reflected by their significant attainment of  therapy experience.  They are skilled in working with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, obsessive or compulsive behaviour, addiction, problems with eating or sleeping, work stress and family problems.

To become accredited, the therapist qualifies as a first step and then they work towards accreditation as an additional mark of professional recognition. Accreditation is a status awarded by their professional association, such as British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or College of Sexual and Relationship Therapy (COSRT); or chartered by the British Psychological Society (BPS); or registered with United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) .

In working at The Grove, every therapist adheres to the strict code of ethics and are committed to working professionally and confidentially with you. They are equipped to deal with a range of issues that may be troubling for you.

If you have private health insurance, your therapy would be provided by an  Accredited Therapist who is recognised by your insurance company to provide funded therapy. Please contact us directly if you have private health insurance, so we can be sure to arrange an appointment with a therapist who is recognised as a provider by your insurance company.
