Getting here

I provide CBT counselling for anxiety disorders , depression, anger management problems and a range of conditions for which CBT is the treatment of choice. I'm accessible from much of London (and beyond), by car and by public transport.

27 Rydal Road, London SW16 1QF.

By car. Ambleside Avenue is one way going northwards. There is no entry into Riggindale Road from Mitcham Lane. You can turn from Tooting Bec Road into Thirlmere Road – not so much a road, more a gap in the pavement – you can see it if you zoom in on the map. (Coming from Tooting Bec, pass the Lido on the left, go over the lights and a railway bridge, and then just beyond the bus stop on the right is a gap – that's it. There shouldn't be any problems parking, and it's free.

By rail. Streatham is the nearest station (0.3 miles) and services trains from London Bridge, Victoria, Waterloo, Clapham Junction, Sutton, Croydon, Wimbledon, Mitcham, Thameslink to Farringdon, West Hampstead and up to Luton and Bedford. Streatham Common (0.6 miles) and Streatham Hill (0.8 miles) have trains to Balham, Wimbledon, Clapham Junction, Waterloo and Victoria. The shortest route from Streatham Common might be a bit scary at night as it takes you along a badly lit path. There is a cashpoint on the way from Streatham station but there's a fee (but Morrisons does cashback). There are no cashpoints on the shortest way from Streatham Common.
