About me

The World today makes increasing demands on the individual and at times it seems as if it is almost shouting at us. Anxiety levels are at record highs, more than ever we need to connect to our unique path in life and articulate our own meaning. Not having this can lead to depression and unhappiness.

My approach is spiritual rather than religious but I feel we have to know ourselves on a deeper level in order to live to our full potential. This involves understanding our childhoods, being in touch with our dreams and above all living fully in the present.

Treading lightly in life and dealing with things gently as they arise is important. Mindfulness, meditation and quietness also help.

I have been a qualified counsellor since 1996 and BACP accredited since 2000. I aim to provide a safe confidential therapeutic space.

I am a gay man, I work with all sexualities and cultural backgrounds and try not to judge. I work with anxiety, depression, spirituality, alcohol abuse, relationships, OCD, grief, childhood trauma, sexuality and many more issues.

I am also a Psychological Astrologer and offer chart readings either on a one-off basis or as an aid to ongoing long-term therapy. My work draws on psychosynthesis, person centred theory, Jungian psychology, Buddhism and psychological astrology. Above all, I offer an empathic and friendly approach.

Please feel free to call me on 07905 588671 for a 15 minute discussion.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
