Tom Mercer, Hackney Therapist, East London

I am a passionate believer in the transformational power of creating the space in our lives to explore our hopes, fears, aspirations and attitudes. The psychotherapeutic relationship offers a unique opportunity to be heard, seen and received in an environment without judgement and in complete confidence.

Over a long career encompassing senior leadership positions in a number of large organisations, I have encountered and worked with many people who appear to have everything, yet are deeply discontent. My own exploration of the areas in my life that felt unfulfilling, or somehow unresolved, led me to therapy. In the therapeutic relationship I experienced for the first time what it is to feel a shift in areas of life that had previously felt completely stuck.

I trained at the Karuna Institute, the home of one of the original mindfulness based psychotherapy training programmes in the UK. I am currently completing an MA in Mindfulness Based Core Process Psychotherapy and am a trainee member of the UKCP, the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.

At this time of uncertainty, when many people are trying to mitigate risk to themselves and their families, I am able to offer virtual sessions for those choosing to self isolate or to limit contact.

Finding the right therapist is a critical start to your journey. In our initial meeting we will explore how we might work together and whether I am the right person to support you on the potentially transformational path ahead. If you have any questions, or would like to arrange a free introductory session, please do get in touch by email.
