You can of course, call me Al! I’m an integrative therapist, I don’t practice one “Brand” of therapy, I bring many trains of thought from the therapeutic world, tailored to your needs. I am human first, therapist second. I love keeping myself active physically through fitness and sports as well as mentally through art and sometimes photography.

I can support with many issues including, Anxiety
Depression, Coping Skills, Stress, Trauma, Men’s Health, Suicidal Ideation, Grief/Loss, Bereavement, How to deal with Anger, Confidence, Relationship issues. This isn’t an exhaustive list and just a snippet of how I can support you. As clients you're all unique so please get in contact and we can talk through the support you deserve.

There are many ways you can contact me so choose which method is best for you, links to my website, email and the ability to book an intro call are all at the top of the page.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
