About me

I can offer you the pause that you might need to work through anything that is upsetting you or causing you distress as well as traumas of all kinds This can be face to face , on line via text, instant messaging or video chat or a blended approach that suits you.

What’s important is the unconditional, non judgmental safe space I provide for you to say whatever you like where you experience reflections that while sometimes challenging are safe and led by you.

We discuss how counselling might help you and the issues which you might want to begin to talk about so that we can agree, between us, on a way of working, bearing in mind my person centred approach , with CBT interventions where you agree it is helpful) and the reasons that might bring you to counselling.

As an accredited member of the BACP you are assured that my practice meets the BACP higher standard as a competent , ethical and independent practitioner.

While often more than one issue can be present when someone is in distress, the kinds of issues clients have brought to counselling with me include depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), abuse, anger-management, dissociation, post psychosis recovery, self-harm and suicidal feelings. There are many more and I would encourage you to contact me initially to discuss your needs.

On line counselling

I also provide counselling services on line.  Online counselling is an alternative way to get support from a professional counsellor. It is an opportunity to explore difficulties, express feelings and untangle troubles in a safe, professional space without judgement. Perhaps you have difficulties with mobility or prefer to communicate by text or via skype live chat or instant messaging.  On line counselling can provide professional and effective counselling without meeting in person. You might even prefer a blended approach where some of the sessions are on line and some in person.

What Can On Line Counselling Help With

Online counselling may be able to help with a wide range of issues including, , abuse, anxiety, stress, depression, eating difficulties, loneliness, relationship problems, bereavement, self-esteem, sexual orientation, sexual abuse, discrimination, traumas and many more.

However not all types of issues can be resolved through online counselling and I will advise you if face to face counselling, or some other form of support might be more suitable for you. Where I consider that online counselling would not be the most suitable means of support I will make every effort to assist you in a referral to a suitable alternative source of support.


If you choose webcam sessions, we can meet on Skype but it is important to know that Microsoft cannot guarantee Skype 100% secure. An alternative , free and considered to be more secure video is available at and I can explain how to use that if you prefer.

If we work together on Skype it can be by text or live session as you prefer. We will agree an appointment time for you and I will meet you on Skype at that time for 1 hour.


It’s important to ensure you have sufficient privacy and safety when in skype counselling or composing a counselling email so I would recommend you choose somewhere that you are unlikely to be disturbed or that others can view your screen while typing.

Similarly, I will respect your privacy where no one can see my computer screen, I am the sole user of it and it is password protected with up to date anti-virus and firewall protection.

Workplace Counselling:

I am also able to offer one hour workshops for managing stress at work followed by an afternoon of individual counselling sessions for staff struggling with any issues particularly stress at work or trauma.

‘As part of our Employee Assistance Programme, the session that Dominic provided offered the opportunity for staff share their experiences, and really helped to raise awareness and understand some of the triggers and signs of stress and well being issues. Dominic handled this in a very professional, calm and open way. Many of the team commented on how useful the day was and this has helped us to develop our local plans for talking about, and tackling stress at work.’ Simon Humphries, Natural England Area Manager, Cumbria

Professional Membership:

I am a registered member of the BACP and work to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice, a copy of which can be made available or found at
