About Capes Haven Ltd 


Capes Haven Ltd means "A safe place of refuge". Capes Haven Ltd Counselling Services is a place where clients can come and explore their inner self in a safe setting, without judgment, where we see you as a unique individual and allowing your autonomy. 

Capes Haven Ltd was founded in 2001, as a Counselling Service to help anyone who in distress irrespective of race, sex, age or gender. 

With years experience in counselling, which was mainly gained while working within the addiction agencies, homelessness sector, asylum and refugees agencies and in private practice, we know that we all need some connection with another being, to be seen and being treated with compassion.

Being an integrative therapist means that we pride our work on the integration of the following modalities: Psychoanalysis, Humanistic ( and personal growth) Psychodynamic (predominantly early life development and experiences), Existentialism and Phenomenology (the what if? and why? questions we ask ourselves).

Lavern Thomas is a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Practitioner and Supervisor based in North London. Her work also involves being a Counselling Lecturer in London and Mentoring freelance trainer.
