What is Cornerstone?
Cornerstone is a London based ecumenical network of Christians, who provide professional counselling and psychotherapy.
Our service is open to all, regardless of age, gender, sexual preference, ethnicity, culture or faith. We also work with people who do not subscribe to any faith or creed. Some of our members have experience working with clergy and those in ministry. We offer counselling and psychotherapy, so do not offer prayer ministry or Bible study. All of us practise within Greater London and have a Christian faith. We all had a secular training and are registered as counsellors or psychotherapists with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) or the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) or are accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). These organisations have a professional code of ethics to which we subscribe. If you would like to contact one of our members please see details on the Find a Therapist page.
We hold an annual lecture that is open to the public and the wider psychotherapy community:
An exploration of shame and deception in both psychotherapeutic and spiritual relationships, where fragments of the true self can be discovered and redeemed.
