About me

Hi, I’m Ben, a mindfulness-based integrative therapist - what does that mean?

At the heart of our struggles is often a wish for things to be different. In therapy, we bring awareness to your experience and, without judgement, learn to accept things as they are. This doesn't mean giving up! But rather we loosen the struggle, creating some space to notice the repetitive cycle we can become trapped in. From here, we create room to see the experience more clearly. This allows an opportunity to change your relationship to that which is leading to your struggle, and choose the change you'd like to see. If you wish, we can use mindfulness activities during the session or discuss goals for you outside of our work.

I am particularly interested in working with

  • The development of self-worth, through acceptance and self-compassion, to help those who struggle with feelings of anxiety and depression
  • The complexity of relationship difficulties, whether that be in creating, maintaining, or letting go

In person, or online

I work from my home in De Beauvoir, and also have a number of online services too. Including email, instant messaging, audio and video calls. These may be suitable if you:

  • Don't live in London
  • Prefer to communicate online
  • Have difficulties leaving your home

These online services are available through the following website, which I use to ensure secure and confidential communications:

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, with a foundation degree in counselling and diplomas in therapeutic counselling and relational mindfulness. I have been working as a therapist for more than three years.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). The BACP is the largest professional body representing counselling and psychotherapy in the UK. They set the standards, values, and ethical guidelines by which therapists work to.

As part of my therapeutic approach I draw on my experience of Psychodynamic and Person centred theory, Acceptance and commitment therapy, and Mindfulness based cognitive therapy.

Here are examples of some issues I have worked with:

  • Fear and anxiety, including generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) and panic attacks
  • Sadness and depression, including postnatal depression
  • Low self-esteem or confidence
  • Relationship issues and difficulties
  • Family issues
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Bereavement
  • Addictions
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • The end of a relationship, separation and divorce
  • Feeling confused, indecisive, stuck
  • Feeling chaotic, overwhelmed, out of control
  • A sense of un-fulfillment
  • Shame, guilt and anger
  • Feeling suicidal
  • Sexual abuse
