Training, qualifications & experience
Tony has a first degree in biochemistry wherein he studied the biochemistry of mood and behaviour. Whilst working in the City of London he gained a postgraduate qualification in business management and a postgraduate diploma in marketing.
After a successful career in finance he studied for a Masters degree in person-centred therapy. His PhD thesis was on 'The clinical effectiveness of the person-centred psychotherapies: The impact of the therapeutic relationship'. In this he studied progress through counselling of 321 clients of 27 therapists, including 137 of his own clients. He was awarded the British Association for Counselling and Psycotherapy (BACP) 2011 prize for Outstanding Research Project for his PhD thesis in which he showed that person-centred therapy was as effective as other forms of therapy, including CBT, and that a good therapeutic relationship predicted good counselling outcome.
Tony has a wide range of experience including working with younger and older adults, those facing extreme adversity and hugely successful individuals.
Tony has experience of supervising therapists from all the main schools of therapy.

Tony really enjoys doing this type of work and would welcome your enquiry. The research evidence is that getting on well with your counsellor (or supervisor) makes an important contribution to good outcome. His approach is to meet with potential clients/supervisees and find out from you 'do I seem like someone you can work with on this?' He charges for initial sessions. Tony sees clients Monday to Sunday and prefers to work with clients during the daytime, including weekend daytimes. He can usually arrange a mutually convenient time to meet up within one week.
