About The Therapy Hour


The Therapy Hour is a psychotherapy and counselling practice offering a range of services from telephone, online and face-to-face individual counselling, to work with couples, groups, teens and organisations.

Based just outside Ashford in Kent, The Therapy Hour is the product of 25 years experience of person-to-person work in statutory, voluntary and commercial organisations as well as with private referrals.  The practice was established and is directed by Erika Lawal, a UKCP registered psychotherapist,  a supervisor and trainer. No less important are our small hub of counsellors and psychotherapists, all of whom are fully qualified and accredited with either BACP, UKCP, or BACAP, the three foremost counselling and psychotherapy professional associations in the United Kingdom.

Health Insurance-Recognised Providers

The Therapy Hour psychotherapists are approved providers of medical treatment for some of the UK’s leading health insurance companies, which means the costs of any treatment provided by us can be met by your insurer if you have private or company health insurance.

Our Work at The Therapy Hour

Derived from an integrative approach to psychological work, our aim is to shape our practice and methodology to the unique needs of each client, rather than attempting to “shoehorn” people into a pre-determined way of working. The formulation of an individual package based on feedback from the most recent research starts from the very first moment you contact us, when we begin assessing what you might require.

Integral to our work is the need to practise in the context of a real world outside the therapy room. We work with an awareness of the importance of identity and culture in helping to shape a sense of self and therefore welcome work with women, Black people, people with disabilities, lesbians, bisexual, gay and transgendered people.

We provide a wide range of psychological therapies and services for individuals, couples groups and organisations. Learn more about our counselling, psychotherapy and consultancy here
