Thank you and stay safe
I am a qualified counsellor working form the tranquil environment of Imagine Wellbeing Clinic based in the David Lloyd Heath Club in Milton Keynes.
Prior to this I worked for 20 years as a Film Director and also as Chairman of a premier league sporting club during which time I achieved a deep understanding of how the challenges we face in the business world can build up pressure and stress that impact both your life and the lives of those around you.
I also gained an insight of the difficulties involved whilst balancing a full-time job and fufilling family commitments.
I am a member of and work within the ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy from the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP). A copy can be found on their web-site: http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/.
I also work with MIND (Mental Health Charity) based in Milton Keynes and enjoy helping people makes sense of their lives and empower them to move forward.
Please give me a call or send an email and I will be happy to arrange an initial free consultation where we can discuss ways I could help or support you.

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).
