I'm a BACP registered integrative psychodynamic counsellor. I see clients as individuals with your own unique issues and life experiences, so draw on a wide range of humanistic, psychodynamic and CBT approaches to tailor therapy to your specific needs.
I work both face to face and remotely online or over the phone.
Integrative Psychotherapy with Ben
I provide a safe, reliable and confidential space where we can develop a trusting relationship to help you feel supported in therapy and free to talk about the issues affecting your life without fear of judgement.
Together we can explore the aspects of your life that are troubling you, helping you process and resolve difficult thoughts and feelings, and gain greater insight and self-awareness in order to live in a more satisfying way.
Before becoming a therapist, I worked for many years as a documentary maker across many different countries and cultures, so understand how empowering and healing it can be to have the opportunity to have your voice heard and feel truly listened to.
I’m a specialist in working with anger and anxiety, and have extensive experience working with depression, trauma, addictions, relationships & breakups, divorce, parenting, abuse, illness & injury, self-harm and grief.
I offer both open-ended and short-term therapy for adults. To arrange a free initial phone consultation, just send me an email or leave a voice message with your details.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
There is no charge for an initial phone conversation. This is normally about 15 minutes and is an opportunity for me to find out a bit about you and for you to ask questions to see if you’d like to book an appointment.
- £70 for an individual session.
- Some limited concession slots also available.
