About me

I work in a professional, friendly and straightforward way. 
Life isn’t always easy. Things change, or end, or go wrong. Sometimes you can feel overwhelmed, hurt or confused. Sometimes you can get stuck or just not like yourself…
Whether you’re feeling anxious, depressed or sad; missing someone you loved; are worried by a family issue or you feel your self-esteem or your confidence is not all it could be...
Whatever it is, you can talk to me in confidence .

I will take the time to listen to you
As a qualified counsellor and an older man with a broad experience of life, I will take the time to listen to you - with kindness, curiosity and compassion. Whatever you’re going through it will help to feel heard and understood. 

We can work together
Together we can work to untangle your concerns, to transform them, and see things in new ways.

Counselling can help you
Counselling is a vital and hopeful connection.
It enables you to change. With the support it offers you will find you have the ability to move forward and flourish.

Your first session 
Your first session with me can be the first step to feeling better. You might feel a little nervous but it's a chance to sit down with someone who really wants to understand how you're feeling and who wants to help you make positive changes in your life.

You can talk to me about whatever is important to you.
 You can tell me about what's been going on for you or what you hope 
to get out of counselling, or maybe talk about some of the things 
which have been troubling you. 
Everything you say will be kept confidential and I will always be respectful of your feelings and experiences.
At the end of the session, we can decide together what happens next.

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.

Additional information

Meeting
I usually meet with clients for an hour once a week and this arrangement works well. However other arrangements are possible to suit your needs.

Zoom
Everyone has their own preferences when they seek support. I work primarily online although sometimes it’s possible to arrange to meet in person.
Working online offers a cost advantage, and the opportunity to be supported from the convenience and comfort of your own safe space. 

In person
If you would prefer to meet face to face please contact me to discuss.
