Psychotherapy and Counselling
in Muswell Hill North London
and Waterloo Central London



    Professional Psychotherapy, Counselling and Supervision practice in:

  • Muswell Hill, N10 (North London psychotherapy practice)

  • Waterloo, SE1 (Central London psychotherapy practice)

  • Heartofthematter is run by Dianne Chipperfield and Doron Levene, two-experienced UKCP registered psychotherapists offering confidential, down-to-earth psychotherapy and counselling for individuals and couples.

    We offer long-term psychotherapy, which includes addressing processes that are not conscious as well as short-term psychotherapy engagements, which are more specifically focused.

Why Therapy?

    People want to find a psychotherapist or a counsellor for many different reasons. Some want help with specific emotional problems such as depression, loneliness or anxiety, or they may wish to generally feel more alive. Some may have difficulty coming to terms with a traumatic or painful personal history. Others may feel stuck in recurring patterns that prevent them from feeling fulfilled, from connecting with others, or from finding meaning in their lives.

    Sometimes people wish to find a therapist or counsellor for help during a crisis, such as end of a relationship, bereavement, divorce, redundancy resulting in loss of direction in life or other traumatic event such as rape, abortion or miscarriage.


Many of our clients tell us they seek psychotherapy in order to:

  • Talk things over in a safe and private environment

  • Improve their personal and professional relationships

  • Find release from emotional and painful symptoms

  • Have more control and choice in their life

  • Change old ways of coping that haven't worked

  • Gain deeper understanding of behaviours and feelings

  • End self-destructive patterns of behaviour

  • Resolve symptoms of trauma

  • Feel more pleasure and vitality


Our approach

    Our approach includes: relational and sensitive listening, open exploration, interactive engagement, respectful challenge and mutual participation in the process.

    In our work we honour the interconnected, participatory and relational dimensions of living in the world. This includes the physical, emotional, psychological, social, cultural and, in a broader sense, spiritual aspects of life.
