About us

At London Cognition, we are committed to helping people to benefit from the many advances in modern brain and psychological sciences.

It is rare to find experts who can understand, communicate, and make useful the latest scientific knowledge. It is our mission to achieve these three things authentically with results that can be felt and measured by our clients. To achieve this we have put together a team of medical, neuroscientific, social scientists and coaches with experience in research, treatment and applications in the cooperate and personal spheres.
