Our Commitment to Clients
Erko Psychology ensure that their psychology services are informed by the latest research. As such, our therapy is evidence based and adapted to the individual.

Our individual psychologists ensure that their own training is kept up to date through continuous professional development. We adhere to the professional ethics of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
Erko Psychology strongly believe that therapy should be determined by the needs of their clients. Accordingly, research shows that clients want a therapy that works, that helps them set their own goals and treats them respectfully and responsibly. Our psychologists use their expert knowledge and skills to provide you with therapy adapted to your personal needs and expectations.
