Getting to the root of issues

We work with families to help understand the cause of conflict, anxiety and discord. Looking both at things that have happened in the past as well as expectations around future behaviours and attitudes, we uncover what is happening in family dynamics and give families tools to heal wounds and restore relationships.

Empathetic communication

Improving our understanding of how family members experience different behaviours and actions helps clients to identify improved ways to communicate their feelings and needs. However, getting to a point that can create a receptive environment often requires the stewardship of a skilled therapist to overcome, sometimes years of hurt feelings and trauma.

Addressing issues and building up support

Through the gentle guidance of one of our team, families find that they can get to the core of the problems they are facing and start to re-build the support they need. Where conflict continues, regular sessions, help families to address problems in a timely manner, and if everyone is motivated to change, be held accountable for the improvements they are seeking to make.

You are not alone

Family conflicts can be incredibly challenging to navigate and isolating for those caught in the maelstrom. Portobello Behavioural Health's team of therapists, coaches and case managers can implement solutions that bring people out from their loneliness and restore damaged relationships.

Depending on what services we recommend the next step is a formal assessment either with a clinical psychologist or a member of the therapy team.

You’ll meet the team working with you and chart a plan to help tackle the problems you are facing. The length of time you work with us will be driven by you and your needs – we will support you every step of the way.

Some common questions about family therapy

Do you accept medical insurance?

We do not accept medical insurance.  In some instances, clients are able to reclaim the cost of our services from theirinsurance companies but we do not deal with insurance companies directly. If additional information is required by a client in making an insurance claim an administration fee is payable.

Do you do therapy online?

Yes. We have a number of therapists who specialise in working with clients online. Get in touch and we can match you up with the most suitable member of the team.

What do I do in an emergency?

Dealing with mental health problems is turbulent and characterised by repeated crises. PBH is not an emergency service. If you find yourself in a situation where someone needs medical assistance or there is an imminent danger you should call emergency services. If the situation is contained and you require rapid response in the form of case management or coaching please get in touch.

Where are you based?

We operate from two offices, one in London and one in Guildford, Surrey. However, we provide support to clients across the world through case management, coaching and therapy. This may include remote or online support or it may mean our coaches travelling to clients in their home country.

Are you CQC registered?

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) oversees clinical and medical support in the UK.  Portobello Behavioural Health doesn't provide clinical or medical services and so we are not CQC registered. Therapists are registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, The Heath and Care Professions Council or a similar accrediting body. Case management and coaching are unregulated, non-clinical services. As such there is no governing or regulatory body that oversees this work. Any concerns, issues or complaints should be addressed to

Do you provide confidential support?

Discretion and confidentiality are our bywords. We protect our clients confidentiality rigorously and have processes in place to ensure that information is safeguarded. We pride ourselves on our discretion. Our flexible approach to support means that we can often work with clients in a way which suits their needs for privacy.
