Welcome to The Psychology Company

One of the first steps to making change is seeking help to get there

We understand that mental and emotional difficulties can feel overwhelming. We would like to support you in becoming the future healthy, happy person you’d like to be.

Let us help

We’re a team of experienced Chartered Psychologists with clinics serving the Godalming and Guildford area in Surrey, along with Petersfield and Southsea in Hampshire, and Haywards Heath in West Sussex.

We keep our team of Psychological therapists small so that we can give you the personal attention you deserve. We’ve worked for NHS and we’ve treated clients in private practice, so we’ve helped many, many people with different symptoms and conditions — and we can help you.

Psychological counseling and therapy available at our clinics or online

The pressures of work and family can make it difficult for you to travel to visit your therapist in our offices. We offer therapy online so you and your therapist can see each other for your session.

See what therapy is right for you

Our psychologists have extensive experience with a number of therapies:

All our psychologists are Chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and we’re accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Those of us who practice Schema Therapy are members of the International Society for Schema Therapy (ISST).

We are also registered with leading private health-insurance companies, including BUPA. (Many insurance companies pay for online therapy, too.)

Call us or use our contact form to get in touch

We treat patients ages 18 and older. Because many people don’t have a clear sense of what they want to accomplish with therapy, we help you set goals with:

  • Short-term therapy, with a small number of sessions to help you cope with your immediate stress
  • Medium-length therapy, for more challenging needs like repairing relationships and building new ones, or developing your coping skills
  • Long-term therapy, which lets you and our psychologist explore at a much deeper level some of the patterns or routes to your personality or difficulties. This can help lead to a deeper level of change.
