About me

My counselling style is rooted in the Person-Centred Approach. I start with the belief that, with the right support, we all have the ability to move towards a more fulfilling and satisfying way of being and living our lives.

I am a Registered and Accredited Member of the BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework. In addition to being a counsellor, I hold a degree in Sociology and Writing and am an experienced Cooperative and Community Development Worker.

Although my core training is in the Person-Centred Approach, I have a keen interest in other approaches, including mindfulness, eco-therapy and existentialism, which may be helpful for some people.

Although counselling is traditionally provided as weekly 50-minute sessions I believe in offering flexible sessions ranging from 25 to 75 minutes in length. We can have one-off sessions to simply talk through a pressing issue, or arrange regular ongoing sessions to delve a little deeper.

As well as working privately, I have worked with GamCare (Gambling Addiction) and am the Managing Director and Senior Counsellor with the charity 'Counselling for Social Change'.  In the past I have also volunteered for Addaction (Drug & Alcohol recovery).

Beyond the counselling room, I am a father, musician and writer and have worked and volunteered for environmental and community organisations for most of my adult life.
