About me

Hello, my name is Dominic and I offer a calm, supportive and confidential space for you to talk about any challenges or difficult feelings you may be experiencing. I am here to listen to you, and to help you understand what is going on for you at the moment. Bottling up thoughts and feelings can affect the way we feel and relate to those around us, and talking to a trained listener can be immensely helpful in addressing these issues and starting to feel better.

I can help with difficulties such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship problems or other such issues that affect a lot of people over the course of their lives. I will not tell you what to do, but will support you if you decide you would like to make changes in your life.

If you feel that counselling could help you then do get in touch by emailing We can arrange a first session for you to talk about what has brought you to counselling, and experience a session with me.  If you decide you would like to proceed we would then book you in for a weekly 50 minute slot. The sessions would then last for as long as you find them necessary and useful.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and hold a Higher Professional Diploma in Counselling (with Distinction).

As well as working in private practice I also have experience of counselling adults and young people in various organisations and charities.  I have supervised other counsellors at Cruse Bereavement Care and also have experience running therapeutic workshops for young people at Body and Soul, a charity helping those affected by childhood adversity.  I also manage other counsellors at a counselling service in West Norwood.  Before qualifying as a Counsellor I worked in various roles in Central Government. I then moved into the charity sector following positive experiences of both counselling and volunteering.
