In collaboration with our neighbours Lambeth and Southwark Mind two events will be hosted in January 2016. The talks are being held to mark the launch of a much needed inner city psychotherapy service by Lambeth and Southwark Mind. All proceeds will be used to provide free long term psychotherapy based on need.

On 16th January from 10:30am – 12:30pm Lambeth Mind Director Ajay Khandelwal will be in conversation with psychotherapist Anouchka Grose.


Grose will talk about her family, influences, and how she came to train as an analyst in conversation with the Director of Lambeth and Southwark Mind, Ajay Khandelwal. The discussion will explore what its like to be an analyst, and the role of therapy today. Ajay and Anouchka will also examine the limitations of the culture of audit and measurement that is now dominant in publicly funded therapy services. Anouchka Grose’s recent books include No More Silly Love Songs, and Are you Considering Therapy?


On 30th January Darian Leader from 10:30am – 12:30pm will discuss, working with psychosis. Lambeth has the highest rates of psychosis diagnosis in UK. Rates are a staggering 9 times the UK average.
