Ben is extremely easy to speak to and confide in. He makes the experience very comfortable and safe. He is understanding and has a great way of handling difficult sessions. He allowed me to come to huge realisations on my own, but slowly working through what was happening in my past and present. I could not have asked for a better experience.

Within 10 session I learned very useful skills of managing my own emotions, understanding roots of my problems and being more emotionally stable. Dr Benjamin is very understandable, warm and committed to what he does. I would highly recommend his help to anyone.

I suffered a head injury following an attack and I was completely broken by the time i saw Dr Piper. I could not look him or anyone in the eye when I was speaking to people, always on the verge of crying, watching over my back and could not even talk about what happened and thought I would get on with life. It wasn't until I had to record and listen back to one of the sessions that I realised how broken I was, it sounded like a completely different person. Ben was patient throughout, his calm easy manner, his explanations of each step meant I trusted him to guide me through the darkness. He has been a great help to me and I have recommended him to other friends. I have no hesitation in recommending him to other people

Ben was super welcoming from the very first session and managed to get me to open up and talk freely (which wasn't easy for me at the time). Ben helped me challenge my thought processes and to look at things from a new perspective which really helped me. Ben was always great to talk to and sessions became enjoyable (both through his approach and noticing my progress). Ben has a great sense of humour which helped me a lot during the sessions, we used this to help me progress and get over my anxiety. I genuinely feel so much better and enjoying my day to day life so much more after going to Ben. I'll always be thankful for this. Highly recommend going to see Ben.

Working with Ben was the best decision i made after suffering with my phobia for 12 years - triggered by a traumatic event. Ben was quick to diagnose my symptoms and construct a treatment plan which we worked through methodically. His humanistic approach was excellent and he always strived to achieve results at each meet. Communications were discreet, so there were never any details exposed. What we achieved in a short time improved my relationships and amplified the healing process i already started. If you have a long term issue then reach out sooner than later, help is available if you take it and this guy is good!

I had about 10 sessions with Dr Benjamin to address issues of anxiety and panic attack that I experienced. Sessions woth Dr Benjamin were not only healing, but educational and re-assuring. I learnt new techniques and tools to cope in the moments of panic attack which have subsequently led me to not experience those anymore. I also learnt to listen and address my thoughts and find coping mechanisms within and around me. I am very thankful for the sessions and will definitely recommend Dr Benjamin to my family and friends.

I only have praise for Ben's work. I have found him to be supportive, objective and very tactful. His approach is both empathetic and solution-focussed. Ben expertly draws on inference and supports individuals in making connections and finding perspective. I am incredibly grateful for his help.

I truly value the time I had with Ben, I think that he was absolutely exceptional and extremely professional at all times. Ben helped me to understand things about myself that I was not aware of and helped me in a very difficult period of my life. As I reflect on the work we have done together, I feel so positive about the progress and changes in myself, which I believe I could not have done alone (or with another therapist). I believe I will carry this learning about myself for the rest of my life as I felt the experience to be so inspiring. Working in mental health myself and having tried several types of therapies, with different professionals, in different countries and in another language, I strongly recommend Ben as a therapist. I learned immensely as a client, person, student and as a professional. Therapy is something so personal and I am glad that I had the opportunity to have such a transformative experience with him. Words fall short of appreciation, thank you Ben

I cannot speak highly enough about Dr Benjamin Piper. A very experienced and professional doctor who actually spent the time necessary to hear me and make an accurate diagnosis. Benjamin will pay attention to your issues and understanding of how well you know your body too and his treatment options are really really good.

Following a break in of my home, I had a lot of trouble sleeping, massive amounts of insecurity and a lot of anxiety. I met Ben a few months ago and I'm so glad I went to see Ben. He is the loveliest, most calming, focused and rational person I've ever had the pleasure in meeting. Ben immediately put me at ease and allowed me to speak freely (along with the odd f word thrown in!). He has done wonders for me and I only had 9 sessions with him. He is a complete professional in his field of work, and I simply cannot thank him enough for all his help, support and guidance. He is so lovely, so nice and just a really nice chap. Would recommend at the drop of a hat. Thank you very much

First and foremost I was utterly surprised at how quickly and comfortably we established a therapeutic relationship. With half of the battle won, we set to work on addressing my issues and I am so grateful for the insight and tools I have gained from our work together. He made it seem so simple despite how difficult it felt at times. Thank you Dr Piper, I am only sorry that our paths did not cross sooner.

I came back after work the other day, I cooked dinner, ticked off a few house tasks and went to bed. A year ago, I wouldn’t have been able to do that. Ben helped a lot. He never gave advice but helped me find my own answers and challenged me to dig deeper. Beyond the professionalism, I felt Ben is genuinely warm on a human level and creates a safe space with no judgement. Wholeheartedly recommended.

From my first session with Ben, I knew I had been guided to the right person. I felt comfortable straight away and quickly opened up to him like I was talking to my best friend. His guidance took me from a place of darkness and fear to warm sunlight and summer meadows. I will be eternally graceful.

I came to Ben with a problem I couldn't understand, rationalise, and ultimately solve. I had no clue what was happening to me, I was completely baffled - I could only describe. Ben listened, took his time to do so, and created a very calm and welcoming environment for me to elaborate. Already after the fist session I came away feeling relieved, even happy at having been given such an assured description of what was happening to me, and such a confident way of slowly treating this. Ben is incredibly incisive and knows when it is time to let the patient talk and then give advice, a verdict or suggestions for solutions. With Ben's descriptions of what my mind was doing and the tasks he set me, using different simple but very powerful tools, I quickly saw a difference in my everyday: I became stronger, more aware of how my mind works, and therefore became much more stable, happy, confident and assured - and not just in relation to the specific problem I was experiencing, but in other aspects of my life as well. I now have tools that I regularly use that keep me and my life improving. In addition, Ben is a super warm human being that I enjoyed talking to, and I am sure he will make anyone feel welcome and confident as I was!

I had a number of appointments with Ben during a difficult and stressful period of huge transition in my life. Despite my nervousness and embarrassment to seek help, from my very initial appointment I felt welcomed, at ease and treated as an individual. Ben helped equip me with a number of techniques to better identify, understand, and manage my issues, in an open, safe and confidential environment in which I was able to channel and challenge my thoughts and feelings. I occasionally revisit Ben for top up sessions when needed and know that a patient, professional, friendly approach will await and that I will leave the session with a constructive practical positive output to move forward with. I would not hesitate to recommend Ben.
