Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service

Faculty Head of Research, Strategy & Innovation: Dr Biljana van Rijn


Metanoia Institute Counselling and Psychotherapy Service (MCPS) is open for face to face sessions.

Our low-cost clinic moved online during the COVID 19 lockdown but is now able to offer face to face sessions and continues to offer a much-needed service to the community.

At the time of increased uncertainty, our mental health is an essential resource in living through the crisis that may affect our health, as well as our relationships, our livelihoods and our wellbeing.

MCPS therapists are working professionally and creatively in finding solutions to continue seeing clients face to face.  We are proud to be fully supporting them with training and advice.

In recent years, counselling and psychotherapy have been increasingly recognised as effective in managing the problems of modern life. We live in times of rapid and sometimes unexpected changes, which can cause stresses and may be very hard to cope with. Counselling and psychotherapy offer a safe place to find ways of dealing with these issues, as well as other emotional difficulties such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems and other concerns.

Metanoia Institute is one of the largest counselling and psychotherapy training organisations in Britain.

We provide a high standard of training in different approaches to counselling and psychotherapy and all our training is accredited.
