About me

"I believe that a different therapy must be constructed for each patient because each has a unique story." (Irvin D. Yalom)

Are you feeling depressed, stressed or anxious? Do you find relationships difficult? Would you like more self-confidence? My name is Tony and I can offer you support in a safe environment to help you to understand and overcome recurring problems or to help you to manage your emotions and anxieties during this challenging time of pandemic, social distancing, financial concerns and beyond.

I am a trained integrative counsellor and use a range of therapeutic approaches to meet your individual needs. I offer face to face counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental atmosphere enabling my clients to identify and understand their problems and empowering them to work towards overcoming them and improving their emotional health. Just as Yalom believes that effective therapy has to be built around his patient’s individual needs, I also adhere to this philosophy working with my client’s own experiences, and using the appropriate therapeutic models.

With social distancing and self-isolation still being advised, I am currently offering sessions via telephone or by video on Zoom, to provide emotional health support.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.
