About me

I have been working as a counsellor since 2008 and have thousands of hours of experience in helping people overcome their problems and get back to living full and satisfying lives. If you are struggling to cope or want help to get the most from life then please get in touch.

I am also a fully licensed Thrive Programme coach. The Thrive programme is an evidence based 1 to 1 psychological training programme that teaches and empowers you to be the very best version of yourself and to make the absolute most out of your life. If you would like to learn how to thrive then please get in touch with me now for a completely free no obligation consultation and assessment. To find out more about the Thrive programme have a look at my thrivewithbobby Facebook page.

My office is located within a quiet business centre where your privacy is guaranteed. It is fully wheelchair accessible with private parking to the rear.

Daytime and Evening appointments are available as well as online options.

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.

Key details

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.
