About me

Psychotherapy and Coaching in Bowdon, Altrincham, WA14, Cheshire and in South Manchester

I specialise in helping people with problems at work but that's not all that I do ...

It's sometimes not enough to talk to friends and family when you are unhappy, anxious, confused or when your career isn't going the way you want. This is where coaching and psychotherapy can be of use.

But who is best to help?

I'm not just a qualified psychotherapist and coach but also someone who runs his own business and who understands the complexities of corporate life. I coach some of the top executives in the UK. We are all human and most us need a bit of help now and again. You don't need to be in crisis to benefit from a therapeutic conversation. You can read more about my ideas in my book - Staying Sane in Business.

Therapy and coaching are private conversations with someone who isn't going to judge you or push you into making decisions about your life or work that you aren't ready to make. It's a place to think, reflect and in my view to move towards a life more fully lived.

My approach at the beginning is simple. I ask you what help you need and together we agree how this is going to work. You are in control from the word go.

You will have the choice about whether you want more listening than questioning, more challenge than empathy, whether you want to use tools and techniques or simply talk and even whether you welcome a bit of humour. Therapy and coaching are always respectful but there's no rule that says they always have to be deadly serious! You can choose to focus more on the past or the future and we can talk about what else you can do in your life to help you feel better, outside of our sessions.

The first step is for us to get together and explore this, so don't delay in giving me a call and setting something up. There's no obligation if you don't want to continue.

I'm looking forward to meeting you....

Convenient evening appointments available

Training, qualifications & experience

You are in safe hands. I'm a fully trained psychotherapist, business psychologist and qualified executive coach. You can see from my from my details that I'm BACP registered and I think that's important. Qualifications don't tell you if someone is right for you but they are at least a start point in helping you make the right choice.

What probably matters more is that I have over 30 years of experience in business and in providing help and support to people of all walks of life.

Member organisations


Accredited register membership

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I work not only as a registered psychotherapist but also a business psychologist and executive coach. So, if it's organisational life, tricky career decisions, your relationship with your boss or the thought of an upcoming assessment centre that is bothering you, I'm equally able to support you.
