About me

*Now providing phone and video appointments*

Thanks for reading my profile, I'm Chris and I provide integrative Psychotherapy, Counselling and Supervision.

Are you feeling as though your mental and emotional well-being isn't good at present?  Do you feel worried and/or fearful?  Are you experiencing relationship problems, or do you feel alone with no one to share your difficulties with?  Are you experiencing concerns such as bereavement or loss of a relationship?  Have you experienced traumatic events?  Have you experienced childhood abuse or neglect?  Or, are you a victim of domestic violence?  Therapy can help in the above and more.

Therapy can help you move beyond the limitations and hurts of the past.  Not only am I a very experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, I also bring a genuine wealth of life-experience to therapy.  And, as a PhD researcher I am also informed by current treatment options.  Also, my experience as a yoga and meditation teacher, and as a Realization Process teacher, means I have additional therapeutic options to bring.  I regularly incorporate mindfulness and embodiment exercises into therapy.  My various training in countless psychotherapy disciplines and my extensive meditation and yoga training provide an evolving yet complete tool-kit from which to help calm the mind and move beyond emotional and mental pain.

I welcome clients from all backgrounds and hope to use my experience to help you find greater well-being and to optimise your life in all ways.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to reach out. I am nonjudgmental - I do not discriminate, and am available to all who wish to take this brave step forwards.

Member organisations

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.

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.
