*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.

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.
