A good friend is in a real mess, is sacrificing everything to his ambition, he believes he is better at work than he is at being a father. We are all frightened he's going to jack in the marriage. He does feel prepared to talk to someone about all this, but he wants it to be practically-based (which is what I believe CBT is). Can anyone recommend a private therapist in London who might be able to help?
I can give you the names of two very good psychotherapists - one in Notting Hill/Holland Park, one in Islington. But, I don't know any cognitive behavioural therapists. If you want those names, you can CAT me.
think it's just an area (like many) where there is a real range of quality - there must be loads of good people on that site, but hard to know withotu a personal recommendation. I just know how dispiriting it wsa for my friend (no, it really is my friend, not me) when she had a bad time with the therapist from that website (which i had found for her as she is computerless)
GhostofNatt, yes please, do CAT me the name, thankyou. I don't know where to start with those sites, though I have emailed him the links (thanks to those who posted them): I'm not sure if he will follow through in any case.
Personal recommendations would help.
I saw one at the Maudsley a few years back whom I wasn't absolutely sure of at the time but did seem to do the trick (as in, I'm here and I got better). The Maudsley is a generally pretty good outfit if you want me to follow up in some way.
