About me

My name is Chris. I’m a vastly experienced, BACP-registered therapist. My aim is to provide a comfortable, non-judgemental space where we can safely explore whatever brings you to therapy. 

Things I can help with
I specialise in sexual abuse suffered as a child or adult, anxiety, and depression. I’ve also worked extensively with addiction, PTSD, anger, shame, and self-esteem. My work is in no way limited to these areas - below you will find a full list.

Free initial consultation
Before committing to a first session, I offer a free, 30-minute phone consultation. Phone, text, or message me now to access this.

Session formats 
All my sessions are done via video (Skype or Zoom), or over telephone. Please note I do not offer face-to-face, in person sessions.   

Session details
Sessions last for 50 minutes, and we will usually meet weekly. I offer longer-term work – for example when working with trauma. I also work shorter-term, offering coping strategies for anxiety, panic, or stress.

My training and way of working

Member organisations

BACP

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.
