A Recent Testimonial

“My husband and I tried a number of counsellors in Fulham before we found The Harley Psychology & Therapy Group.  It was such a different experience to the ones we had had before and this time it actually seems to have worked!  I would recommend that if you are struggling in your relationship you should try them”.
