About Us

The Chelsea Psychology Clinic was developed out of a passion to deliver high quality mental health care within a private setting. With 20+ years experience working within the NHS, our founders – Dr Elena Touroni and Dr Tom Pennybacker – are specialists in their respective fields. Their mission was to bring this same level of expertise to the private sector in order to offer high quality, evidence-based psychological and psychiatric care with the best outcomes.


At its heart, therapy itself is a human experience. We firmly believe therapy is most effective when it is personalised to fit the individual rather than the other way round. This is why all of our psychologists are trained in multiple therapy modalities and why we also offer a comprehensive assessment process.


But first and foremost, we want our clients to feel cared for from the first moment they enter the clinic and throughout their therapy journey. We’ve spent a lot of time creating a safe, welcoming environment where people feel held in mind and looked after. A place where you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing you’re not alone in it all anymore… We’re here to support and guide you to better mental wellbeing so you can unlock your full potential and become the best version of you.
