How are you managing with the Corona Virus


This terrible virus has come to change all our lives. It has changed how we meet each other , how and where we work and has changed in every way our financial stability and how we can manage financially.
I , like most people, can no longer meet my clients face to face in our Richmond Centre, but I can meet them on Skype or Zoom.
The internet provides a very safe way for us to meet. Confidentiality is assured and no one will interrupt our sessions.
Please do contact me if you wish to discuss these current issues or any other issues that have come to plague your life.
Please ring me on 07773 385 165 or email me or Skype live:tony_13219 to see how we can work together.

Counselling and Psychotherapy in South West London

My name is Tony Novissimo and I am a qualified psychotherapist and Counsellor and a Full Accredited member of the BACP. I have been a practising counsellor and psychotherapist in the South West London area for the past seventeen years and am committed to help my clients aim for their highest potential.

The way I work provides effective counselling and psychotherapy while ensuring safety and confidentiality.

Our conversations will explore ideas you that you may never have given voice to before. It may surprise you , the ideas that may rule you . Maybe you no longer need to be ruled by such ideas.
In the legal profession they talk about a "Prison Sentence". Well you may find that your ideas, expressed as sentences, "Imprison " you.

Where will we meet

We can meet in my Therapy Rooms at
London Therapy Foundation ,40 Lambert Avenue , Richmond ,TW9 4QR
I usually offer one session per week for an agreed number of sessions or until such time that the concerns you have are resolved.

My counselling clients will be individuals, couples or families, and I work with young people from the age of ten.
We will work towards enabling you to live your life more happily and more fully

My Approach and Philosophy

My personal Approach as a counsellor and psychotherapist is to use psychodynamic, Integrative and transpersonal (Spiritual) techniques. I use Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) whenever it is appropriate.

For the last 45 years I have been on a journey of self discovery , studying practical philosophy and seeking answers within. Regular meditation has had its rewards and brought great peace to the self.

Within my Spiritual techniques I use concepts of living in the present moment, stilling the mind , meditation, returning to stillness, and using the mind as a tool not as my identity.

I use Mindfulness , and more in my approach and I keep in mind also the wider philosophical approach of Advaita .

Areas of Counselling and Psychotherapy

Areas of counselling and psychotherapy I am particularly experienced with:

  • Stress, Grief and Anxiety
  • Panic attacks and OCD
  • Anger
  • Depression and Feeling sad and low
  • Family concerns
  • Couples and Relationship issues
  • Identity issues
  • Sexuality
  • Addiction or Eating disorders
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Redundancy

    Maybe you feel life is getting on top of you, or maybe your mind is spinning with unresolved thoughts that repeat endlessly?
    Let your therapy sessions be a place to take some time-out, to explore your thoughts and feelings and to get back your peace of mind again?

  • Considering Anger

    In my practice as a counsellor, I differentiate between three forms of anger. These are :

    Good anger
    Bad Anger

    Good Anger: It is important to use good anger to uphold the laws you make for your self and your home and other places that are within your jurisdiction. Good anger is designed, through conflict, to uphold your laws and educate those who might break them.

    Bad anger : this tends to be knee jerk reactions to things that irritate you and usually are in no way educational. They reflect badly upon you self control.

    Rage: is like a volcano, and is fuelled by years of previous injustice , bullying and abuse. Rage will burst out when a new event of injustice occurs when the flood gates of a lifetime collection of hurts explodes into the present moment.

    No Waiting and Appointment flexibility

    I realise that therapists may often put their clients on a waiting list , but I am available 70 hours per week and so am certain to be able to meet with you within a day or so of your call.
    Many of you may need flexibility around the date and time of your weekly meeting and I can arrange this with you to work around shift work patterns, travel and other commitments.

    Contact and Location

    If I can be of help please do get in touch. There is no obligation .

    We will meet at the Therapy Centre
    40 Lambert Avenue, Richmond, TW9 4QR.

    Call me on 0208 241 8245 or 07773 385 165 or email me on [email protected]

    The Region that I cover : Richmond and Warwick

    My practice is based in Richmond, within easy reach of Barnes, Mortlake, Kew, Putney, Isleworth, Twickenham, Teddington, Ham and Hammersmith ,all in South West London.

    But interestingly I have worked with clients who were living as far away as New Zealand and Spain while several clients lived in Wales and others on the South coast.

    So although places like Barnes and Twickenham are indeed local we can still work together either Face to Face or by "Skype" if you were living further afield.

    I have also opened a clinic in Warwickshire which has been running since 2015
    The Bungalow
    Lighthorne Rough,
    Moreton Morrell
    CV35 9DB

    From this centre I meet with clients as far as Leamington Spa ; Stratford; Warwick; and Banbury. The practice is growing well and I am available from Saturday afternoon till 10.00pm , until Tuesdays at 3.00pm
    For more details please look at my Warwick website

    It is a collective of about 80 counsellors and psychotherapists covering the widest spectrum of theoretical platforms.

    As the Founding Director it has been a privilege to meet and work with such a superb selection of colleagues, and to be able to learn so much from these practitioners.
