Dominic Merchant

About me and my practice

I am a experienced practitioner based in London specialising in helping people with addictive behaviours of all kinds. My goal is to help you relate to your thoughts, your behaviours and yourself in a more helpful, realistic and compassionate way. Change comes more easily with context and understanding.

Outline of offer

I only use approaches which are rigorously grounded in the best research. These include metacognitive, behavioural and mindfulness-based techniques.


Before starting my private practice, I held roles in the prison system and the luxury private rehab sector. I am confident working with people from all backgrounds and have experience with a wide range of both drug and behavioural addictions. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Addiction Psychology and Counselling. Alongside my practice, I am completing doctoral research in addiction psychology, teach counselling skills and provide reflective practice groups for frontline substance misuse workers.
