What therapists say about working in private practice at The Awareness Centre

I spent a year at TAC during my training, because of the diversity I was able to be my true self and felt so accepted and at home that I now run my Private Practice from their offices. Again I feel the same experience, if there is an issue, life does happen and things will go wrong once in a while, the issue is dealt with professionally, swiftly and in a person centred manner. The front of house staff are always warm and welcoming, as are all staff members that I have related with. There is a steady and consistent flow of clients. I now truly feel at home and comfortable in my practice. Thank you TAC for all the support I have received, its been amazing.

The Awareness Centre is extremely professional and well-run, and provides a welcoming and peaceful environment from which to see clients. The building and rooms are well maintained, well-furnished and comfortable, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

L.H

I have hired a room at Clapham TAC for a number of years. It’s a great location and a really lovely bright airy room always maintained to an excellent standard. I value the work of the reception team who provide a warm welcome to my clients helping them to have a good experience from the moment they arrive. I have particularly found the ability to hire rooms from 7am helpful to meet the needs of clients who are looking to slot in their therapy sesison before work.
