Philippa Tuckman Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Counselling
in Hackney, East London & Online


I am experienced in psychotherapy and counselling through my years of work in private practice and as an honorary psychotherapist at the Guild of Psychotherapists and volunteer counsellor at Mind.

I draw also on many years’ work as a lawyer. In the East End of London, advocating for clients who were tangled in situations involving domestic violence, neglect and control, and then injuries in dangerous industries and housing, I learned about the complex interactions that exist between economics, culture, politics and mental wellbeing. My experience as a senior lawyer included leading a department which represented thousands of survivors of personal injury, medical negligence, racial and sexual harassment and discrimination, and my team specialised in cases on behalf of military personnel. It was through my work with soldiers suffering from mental health problems as a result of their service that I found my interest in psychotherapy . Further details of my work can be found at
