About me

Hello, welcome to my page. My name is Ben and I am a Clinical Psychologist, Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) and Counsellor. I aim to help those who are struggling with low mood, anxiety and relationship difficulties / break-ups. During these difficult times, I've increased the number of video/telephone calls I offer. For video calls I use a secure, AES 256-bit encrypted line so you can be assured your appointment remains private. Any queries about what this means, please just ask (!).

I tailor treatment to my client: although I specialise in using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I also incorporate Counselling approaches, Eye Movement Densensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness based CBT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) if, together, we feel they could be of benefit. My extensive training and experience ensures I am able to help with a number of difficulties, including (but not limited to):

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Loneliness
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Panic Attacks
  • Post-traumatic stress (PTSD)
  • Relationship difficulties (including break-ups)
  • Social anxiety
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Work/exam stress

Typically, I practise out of two locations and also offer video calls. I practise in a calm and peaceful therapy room at Shere Surgery in the Surrey Hills on the outskirts of Guildford, and at a health centre on Epsom Road in the centre of Guildford.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information; I would be pleased to answer any questions you may have.

Health Insurance

I am an approved specialist provider with most of the leading health insurance companies, but equally able to see you if you will be self-funding.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited



Prior to the first appointment, I am happy to offer a free telephone consultation to discuss any questions you may have about my clinic and whether I could be of help.

Fee per CBT therapy session: £100. Each session lasts for 50 minutes.

I have good links with a number of Clinical Psychologists and CBT Therapists in the area: this means that when my clinic is full, I can recommend other practitioners who may be able to help you.

Further information

In addition to offering therapy, I also offer supervision to a number of Guildford based therapists. If you are interested in receiving supervision, I look forward to hearing from you.

Finally, if you would like any further information, about me or my clinic, you are more than welcome to ask. Choosing a therapist can be a really tricky decision so I am happy to help in any way I can.
