About me

Hello! My name is Andy, and I have been an accredited psychotherapist and counsellor for eight years. Before that I worked in the public and charity sectors, building helping relationships with people of all backgrounds for over ten years. It is my belief that counselling should be a flexible and supportive process; one that is firmly grounded in theory but also adapted to suit the strains and difficulties of modern life. My particular areas of interest are work around sexual and gender identity, trauma, relationship and sexual difficulties, anxiety and depression, sexual violation, bereavement and chronic illness. If I can help at all, or if you would like a brief and informal chat about what therapy involves and how it might help you, please do get in touch - I would be very happy to hear from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed the following training courses in psychotherapy and counselling at Regents University in London, which led to my accreditation with the UKCP:

  • Advanced diploma in integrative psychotherapy and counselling (2010)
  • Postgraduate diploma in integrative psychotherapy and counselling (2008)
  • Foundation certificate in integrative psychotherapy and counselling (2006)

I have worked as a psychotherapist, counsellor and helpline worker at several charities over the last 12 years, including Macmillan Cancer Support, Terrence Higgins Trust, PACE Health and SurvivorsUK. I am currently training in clinical supervision and have extensive experience of managing counselling and helpline services, and providing counselling in innovative ways, such as by SMS and online.
