Lifespan Psychology – The Diverse Practice® – is a Private Psychological Therapy Practice established by Founder | Clinical Director | Consultant Clinical Psychologist Dr. Esther Cole. Dr. Cole worked in the NHS for 12 years and joined the independent sector in 2017:

"As a third-generation British Jamaican Psychologist, managing long-term conditions whilst being a mother of three, I warmly welcome clients from all walks of life. I have a passion for men’s mental health, and for supporting people living alongside mental, physical or neurological difficulties and trauma.

"I am co-editor of Psychological Therapy for Paediatric Acquired Brain Injury: Innovations for Children, Young People & Families (Jim, J. & Cole, E. 2019. London: Routledge), and I am honoured to have received the Early Career Award 2020 from The British Psychological Society’s Division of Clinical Psychology.

"The team at Lifespan Psychology are also delighted to have received the Prestige Award for Psychological Therapy Specialist Provider of the Year in 2022... and again in 2024! We offer sessions online and in-person in London and Home Counties. Since COVID-19, the team also offer assessment and therapy sessions online nationally and internationally. To ensure we maintain face-to-face contact where possible, we also offer home and school visits for assessment, therapy and behavioural support for an extra travel fee."

Dr. Cole and Associates are from culturally and racially diverse backgrounds including the Caribbean, UK, Africa and Asia, offer a breadth and depth of skills and experience, and use a wide range of psychological therapies. They work therapeutically across the lifespan (with children, young people, adults and older adults) - those who are experiencing a range of mental health difficulties, trauma, emotional and psychological distress, physical and neurological conditions.

All psychological therapies and interventions are tailor-made to the uniqueness of the individual, child, family or organisation. The aim is to use the best available research evidence and to, therefore, be more effective at improving well-being within a specific timeframe.

“I came across Lifespan Psychology at a time when I was feeling low, confused and not my usual self. The therapeutic support I have received has given me a safe and understanding space to talk and think through this period of my life while having hope for the future.”
