Hi, my name is Doug Foot, I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist and Acupuncturist based in Monument in the City of London and Forest Hill, South East London. Welcome to my profile! I hope you find the content interesting and that it gives you a feel for who I am and how I work. If you like what you see and have any questions, or would like a chat about how we could work together, then please drop me a line.
Many of my clients are seeking talking therapies and come for a course of counselling and psychotherapy if they are experiencing psychological distress such as depression, anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder & anger management issues or are not feeling in control of their lives. Some of of my clients are interested in making progress with relationship issues, whether they be of a personal or work related matter. Other people are interested to explore the next period of their life after a change in career, or even redundancy.
With my acupuncture clients I treat a complete range of conditions, specializing in psychological well-being. I regularly help people to manage stress, anxiety, depression, addiction or bereavement. I also work with all muscular skeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis, lower back ache, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder etc. Others choose to have treatment to help maintain good health, as a preventive measure, or simply to improve their general sense of well-being. Many people return again & again because they find it so beneficial & relaxing.
Whatever your situation, please give me a call if you would like further advice.
Always very happy to help!

I’d been siuffering from pain in my knee for some time when a friend suggested I try accupuncture.
I was a little nervous about it but Doug soon put me at my ease and got to work.
The pain cleared up within a few sessions and I am delighted!
