Yoko Otsuka Kirkpatrick - Psychotherapist

I am a practicing psychotherapist and counsellor, whose work is informed by my training in Lacanian Psychoanalysis.

I started in Private Practice well over a decade ago, in 1999. I was a founder member of the London Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (LACAP) in September 2000. The vast majority of my 7,000 plus client contact hours have been consulting for LACAP.

In addition to my own casework, I have particular responsibilities for the Low-Fee scheme. I manage the therapists that work on the scheme, and oversee the appointment arrangements and referrals. I take the vast majority of initial consultations (assessments) for clients coming onto the scheme, and handle the interviewing for student placements.
