Hi I am Dominic, welcome to my page. I am a qualified therapist trained to address the past and present to help people deal more successfully with a range of issues.
Do you feel blocked by your past, are you experiencing loss, do you find yourself endlessly repeating harmful patterns of behaviour?
Working through the blocks that contribute to an unsatisfactory life helps clients heal and get in touch with that part of them that leads to happiness and peace of mind; the true self.
I work with clients on a range of issues:
- low self-esteem
- relationship issues
- depression and dual diagnosis (addictions plus mental health issues).
I have experience of short term work for the NHS and more in depth work in private practice.
I use a combination of theoretical approaches tailor made to the client. Notably the psychodynamic, that is looking to the past and providing clients with useful insight into current behaviours. And also, the person-centred approach which uses the humanistic skills of seeing the client as their own expert and utilising amongst other skills deep empathy to fully be there for the client in the here and now.
Where applicable I also makes use of CBT which can be helpful for erroneous and destructive core beliefs.
I am available online or in person.
If you are interested, send me an email, I shall arrange a telephone chat where we can look where you are at and what you would like to work on. My email is email@example.com

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I am a keen advocate of Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dsyfunctional families. (ACOA). This is a 12 Step Program which originated from Alcoholics Anonymous but was re-interpreted by therapists and looks at the whole system the person comes from including childhood and trans-generational trauma. Therapeutic support can be of great value and assistance during this work.

When I work
My practice is in a quiet home in Clapham South.
I create a safe, relaxing and peaceful space for my client to be. There is no pressure here. By fully being with clients I find we can easily more deeply discover where the client is at and what they would like to work on. I use a range of therapeutic theories as well as intuition and active listening with clients in the here and now. I am not here to judge or hold any opinion, I am here more often that not to guide clients back to themselves.
