About me

UPDATE 24 August 2020

Owing to pressure of work in my other roles (General Practice and Medical Education) I have reluctantly decided to stop taking on NEW patients until New Year 2021.  Please do check www.hgi.org.uk/find-therapist for other Human Givens therapists. 

Are you looking for effective help to recover soon?  Or wondering if you will have to wait months for therapy? 

The Human Givens approach may be the answer to a wide range of mental health problems including

  • Anxiety including Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Depression and Low Mood
  • Panic Attacks
  • Trauma
  • Phobia
  • Anger
  • Addictions and unwanted habits
  • Stress

During the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions I will be providing all the therapy that I can online via Zoom.  For the few occasions where face-to-face therapy would be required, that can be arranged.

In most cases, we can expect to have found a way out of the difficulties listed above in 2 – 6 sessions.

The average number of sessions for a course of treatment in my practice is 3.8. Improvements are such that at completion of the therapy 80% of clients rate themselves within the normal range for mental and emotional wellbeing.

20 years as a GP and my training in the Human Givens underlie my practical approach to getting your life back on track. My website describes more about my work, or you can simply contact me now to see we can work together. 

You may also benefit from my knowledge in the areas of exercise, diet, the micro-biome (gut health), and the links between physical and mental health where these are relevant to helping improve your wellbeing.

Please understand that I cannot provide a medical opinion, new medical diagnosis, medical investigation or prescriptions for medication whilst working as a counsellor/psychotherapist.

My average session number per client is 3.8.  At completion of therapy 80% of clients feel substantially better. 

In view of the low cost overall I do not offer concessions.

Wheelchair user access

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.

Chilcompton Surgery is not specifically designed for wheelchair access. The Therapy Room is upstairs. If you will need a ground floor room, please discuss this with me so we can find a suitable time to use one of the doctors' rooms downstairs.
