Opening its doors this Autumn, The Soke is a new, private cognitive health centre changing the face of outdated mental health care. Situated in London’s Chelsea, they acknowledge that looking after your mental health shouldn’t be an afterthought when a problem arises, but rather an important factor in maintaining a positive lifestyle. Clients of The Soke will have access to a full spectrum of best-in-class, non-acute outpatient services including psychotherapy, psychiatry, counselling, and Leadership Development services. Recognising the importance of providing mental health care in a non-clinical, client-focused environment, The Soke provides a calming and healing atmosphere for those battling with mental health issues or those simply wanting to improve their quality of life.
The Soke encourages all individuals to aim for the best levels of cognitive health in the same way they may seek to achieve peak physical fitness. Mental health care is equally as important as our physical health and by nurturing both, we enable our bodies and minds to function to the best of their ability. The aesthetically considered design of The Soke couldn’t be further away from typical mental health care clinics. Featuring beautiful interiors, it feels almost hotel-like, luxurious, yet still providing the utmost privacy and safest of spaces.
Details have been added throughout the building aiming to evoke thought, emotion and nostalgia, which are all helpful in enhancing therapeutic outcomes. There are multiple low-lit ‘Quiet Pods’ dotted around the building for clients to use for up to 45 minutes following their appointment to take some undisturbed time to relax and recharge. Clients can choose to enhance their relaxation time using the Alpha-Stim devices, which are clinically proven (and approved by the NHS) to treat anxiety, insomnia and depression in as little as 20 minutes.
Services on offer to clients include Psychotherapy, Psychiatry, Leadership Development, Child & Adolescent Therapy, Family Therapy, Couples Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Hypnotherapy, High-Performance Coaching, Group Therapy, Corporate Psychological Health & Assessments, as well as workshops and talks.
Battling stigmas around mental health, The Soke is shifting expert-led mental health care into the 21st century. The bespoke services on offer aim to improve clients’ wellbeing as well as promote a more positive outlook on life providing tools to combat daily stresses and issues that may cause mental health issues to arise. The Soke sets out to normalise and improve mental health care for clients, ensuring their individual needs are met at every junction, enabling them to become the best version of themselves.
