COVID 19 Policy

Erko Psychology hopes that you and your family are staying safe during this difficult time. The government has announced a new lockdown for England starting on the 6th January. Erko Psychology will continue to offer face to face therapy sessions throughout the lockdown in line with advice for essential services. Our therapists will also offer an online therapy service through Zoom or similar throughout the lockdown period. Our services are COVID compliant and we would ask that you do not attend face to face sessions if you have been asked to isolate or are displaying symptoms.


Our Commitment to Clients

Erko Psychology ensure that their psychology services are informed by the latest research and that therapy is evidence based and adapted to the individual. We collaborate with other independent psychology practices in supervision, teaching and training. Our individual psychologists ensure that their own training is kept up to date through continuous professional development and 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. 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 psychological knowledge and skills to provide you with therapy adapted to your personal needs and expectations.
