About me

I am an experienced counsellor offering a confidential service to those seeking professional support through times of emotional difficulty.

As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), I am bound by their Code of Ethics and will adhere to their guidelines. This ensures I receive regular supervision and undertake on-going professional development.

I work using a tailored combination of different therapeutic models to meet the needs of individual clients; primarily combining Humanistic and Psychodynamic models to help my clients explore past experiences, life choices, values, how they perceive themselves and experience the world.

Many and varied things lead people to seek professional counselling; stress, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, bereavement, trauma, relationship breakdown, feeling lost, betrayed, lonely, or having general feelings of low mood or sadness.  Whether these feelings are attributable to an identifiable event or from something vague and elusive, they can be overwhelming and debilitating and negatively impact your health and well-being.

Through the therapeutic process you can achieve a greater insight and understanding of self, your situation and feelings, and see change in yourself and your relationships.

Whatever your personal situation, you will be treated with acceptance, calmness, warmth and sensitivity, in a safe, confidential space where you can talk and be listened to without judgement.

Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to find out more or book an introductory session.

Face-to-face sessions

I am available for face-to-face counselling sessions at Wokingham Therapy Clinic and The Therapy Centre (Reading), both well-established therapy and well-being centres in Berkshire.

Online sessions

I also conduct online sessions which can offer greater flexibility and convenience.

Online sessions will be conducted with the same privacy as you would expect in face-to-face sessions. A virtual therapy room will be created, free of interruption, where we can maintain confidentiality.  Just like meeting face-to-face, we will meet at an arranged time and for an agreed period.

Online sessions are conducted using Zoom, an online meeting platform using secure encrypted video. I will send secure login details to you for each session, and will be waiting to meet with you, just as though we were in the therapy room together.

You do not need to have a Zoom account to attend a session but will be prompted to download the app once you click on the meeting invitation.

Please telephone, text or email me if you would like to discuss this further.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a male counsellor, trained and qualified in Integrative therapeutic counselling and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), with full professional indemnity insurance.

My counselling experience began in the 1990s with the completion of a Certificate in Combined Counselling Theory and Skill. As well as professional counselling, I have some 30 years' practice supporting people experiencing bereavement, trauma or other life difficulties through my voluntary work with Victim Support, Samaritans, ARC Counselling, the Coroner’s Court Support Service, with homeless people through CRISIS, and working in a therapeutic residential setting for adults with learning difficulties.  This work has provided me with a wealth of experience, interacting with and supporting individuals from diverse communities and backgrounds through difficult and distressing times in their lives.

In my professional capacity as a qualified counsellor I have helped clients with varied issues, including:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • domestic violence
  • relationship difficulties
  • domestic abuse
  • sexual abuse
  • eating disorders
  • addictions
  • bullying
  • paranoia
  • low self esteem and lack of confidence

Member organisations

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.
