About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Ben, a mindfulness-based therapist. I'd like to begin by acknowledging the current impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The world is experiencing an unprecedented moment. Have we ever been so acutely aware of our interconnectedness, while at the same time required to separate ourselves from one another. 

You may be experiencing many different emotions right now. From fear to fascination, anger and frustration, loss and sadness. Whether that be directly related to the virus, or its impact on you, your loved ones, or society more widely. You may also be apprehensive about self-isolation and worried about how you will manage.

My intention is to continue to support others in this present moment. Please note I am only offering online therapy (video-call and instant messaging) to new clients at this time.

If you have questions about online therapy, please feel free to drop me an email or give me a call.

My approach to therapy

As part of my therapeutic approach I draw on my experience of Psychodynamic and Person centred theory, Acceptance and commitment therapy, and Mindfulness based cognitive therapy. I have experience of helping people with difficulties including: generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), panic attacks, depression, low self-esteem or confidence, and relationship issues. For a complete list of areas I can help with, please see the 'What I can help with' section below.

I also work as a Teacher on the meditation and sleep app Insight Timer, producing free audio content for the millions of meditators who use the app. You can follow me @ www.insighttimer.com/bendouch

Practice description

I work from my home in De Beauvoir, on the border of Hackney and Islington in north-east London, while being accessible online to those who cannot attend in person. 

For those who wish to work with me via online therapy, we’ll connect using a secure communication platform, using either VSee or Zoom. These are free to download and relatively simple to setup.

My first session

Each session is 50 minutes in duration.

In our initial session we'll find out more about each other. I'll let you know how I can best help, allowing you to decide whether you'd like to book a regular appointment.

  • £30 (for online therapy via instant messaging)

Each session after the initial consultation is:
