Dr. Lawrence is the third psychiatrist I have seen in my life and I found him to be very professional and obviously very experienced compared to the others I've seen. He was able to understand, empathise and explain things in a way that I could easily understand. His advice and 'homework' as he calls it have been effective in helping me manage my situations. He also has very efficient and friendly staff under his employment which always makes for a pleasant experience. I have since recommended Dr. Lawrence to others I know that needed help and would recommend him any day.

Dr Robin Lawrence has been exemplary in every manner, considering I should think I’m not so easy to manage. He provides an unbelievable balance of understanding, care and warmth with science, history and development.. intelligence coupled with the ability to break it down to the immediate need to just listen and soothe. I can not recommend this wonderful doctor enough.

Dr. Lawrence is both warm and caring with a long standing record of experience in his field. He came highly recommended to me by one of the UK's leading specialists in another field of Psychology and behaviour therapy. I have always felt that I have been listened to and that both my concerns and progress have been taken onboard and are a priority to Dr. Lawrence - He really does want the best for his patients and that sincerity is very apparent when you meet him in person. The location is convenient for central London and his staff are both courteous, kind and well humoured when appropriate, after all, what's the point of seeing a Psychiatrist if not to be happy! On many occasions, they have gone out of their way to assist me with scheduling, prescriptions or any queries I have had. I would highly recommend Dr. Lawrence and his staff at 96 Harley Street to anyone in search of a reputable practice in central London.
