About me

My name is Anthony, and I am a fully qualified (M.A. Psych., PGDipPsych) and registered (mBACP) integrative psychotherapist, specialising in person-centred therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and cognitive-behavioural therapy.

In a warm, non-judgemental and confidential space, we will work together to help you find greater understanding and meaning, and in so doing, enabling you to make better choices.

I am trained in, and utilise, a wide variety of methods and expertise to guide you through your own personal challenges, which might include anxiety, social anxiety and panic attacks; depression and feeling sad; personal, professional and family issues; stress; low self-esteem and low self-confidence; and phobias.

I know from experience that deciding to find a therapist can be a daunting and overwhelming task.

If my profile resonates, please send me an email or give me a call, and I will be in touch to discuss next steps, and how I might best be able to help.

My Approach:

My approach is contemporary, client-centred and tailored to your individual needs.

I work relationally and proactively in a non-judgemental environment where you will be heard and understood.  We will work collaboratively, as I reflect upon and offer insights and possible solutions to your dilemmas.

Through talking therapy we will start to understand and process feelings which you, or those around you, might have ignored.  As you discover and articulate those feelings, your levels of emotional well-being will rise, your relationships with others will improve, and your professional potential will increase.

Getting in Touch:

After you get in touch, I will arrange for us to have a complimentary call at a time convenient to you, so that I can hear more about what it is you are looking for, and discuss how I might be able to help.  If following that call you feel that you would like us to work together, we can arrange a first session.

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.
