About me

Why counselling?

Everyone needs someone in their corner.

Do you
– Worry too much about what others think?
– Replay past conversations over and over?
– Have a hard time saying “no”?
– Feel like you’re never good enough?
– Take the blame to avoid “rocking the boat”?
– Avoid speaking your mind?
– Put off doing things that matter to you?

You can change.

– Let go of unrealistic expectations
– Develop self-acceptance
– Practice forgiveness
– Express your needs
– Set boundaries
– Get motivated
– Be more assertive

Here’s what clients say:

“I didn’t know what to expect from counselling other than what I’ve seen in movies, so I was up for a surprise. Alan provided me with an opportunity to improve how I connect with others by improving the stories I tell to myself and others, expand awareness and better connect to my emotions. Alan’s acceptance and soft approach helped me to feel safe when discussing difficult/sensitive topics. On top of that, Alan is reliable and always tried his best to accommodate any need for flexibility on my end. Alan’s relaxed attitude helped sometimes even to laugh at the difficult moments in my experience, so I’m very glad I decided to reach out to him in the 1st place.”–Vytas B., London, UK

“I’ve been attending sessions with Alan for the last 9 months and cannot recommend him highly enough. The relaxed environment coupled with Alan’s insightful comments have made a positive difference to my life.”–Matt R., London, UK

“Over many months of working together, Alan held a safe, non-judgemental, therapeutic space which helped me both develop a much better understanding of my self and implement practical strategies to deal with specific challenges. Highly recommended.”–Jamie G, London, UK

“I could not fault my experience with Alan. Arranging appointments was straight forward and Alan was always reliable. His supportive, understanding and non judgemental nature provided huge support. I would highly recommend Alan.”–Clare P., London, UK

“Extremely helpful in guiding me and giving me a sense of peace.”–Ayesha D. London, UK

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
