At present we are offering a range of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) based digital, telephone and video interventions, however we are unable to offer face to face appointments. Our other range of therapies is also more limited at this time.
If your preference is for face to face appointments then we would encourage you to refer to iCope when we resume support in person. At this time we are unfortunately unable to provide a time frame. You can keep up to date with developments on our website, or by calling us on:
Camden 020 3317 6670, Islington 020 3317 7252, Kingston 0203 317 7850.
We expect the service adaptions to remain the same for some time as we do everything we can to continue to protect our community and the vulnerable populations we support. Below we have detailed further information on specific support around COVID-19. This page is specifically for Camden & Islington areas. There is a separate page here for Kingston.
We would like to thank you for your understanding and patience at this challenging time.
At iCope we usually offer face to face one-off sessions called Workshops, which are usually run in a group setting. Due to the current situation we are unable to run our usual workshops. Instead we have created 2 online workshops that offer support around managing wellbeing during the pandemic. They are based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques which we hope can be helpful.
