About me

My name is Dominic, I am here to support you with whatever needs you have. I've helped lots of people from different backgrounds and ages with all sorts of problems. I am a warm, caring person and I'm ready to listen.

I can help you with a range of issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Bereavement & Loss
  • Trauma
  • Gender Dysphoria
  • Body Dysmorphia
  • Sexual Identity

The pandemic has created more stress and anxiety in many of us. Counselling is a way that you can work through whatever is troubling you in a supportive, non-judgemental and confidential space. You will be able to talk about your problems at your own pace and I am here to listen.

I can help you to understand how to manage and deal with difficult, sometimes overwhelming feelings and distress. I will help you move beyond the issues and live a more fulfilling life.

How can my approach help you?

As you are a unique person, I will work with you in a way which best suits you. I will help you to explore the things that are troubling you and bring about real change.

What is available?

I can offer face to face sessions at the Shaw Therapy Centre, Oldham. These last for 50 minutes. During your free consultation we will discuss how many sessions you feel you need.

Realising that things are difficult for you is a vital first step, so if you would like a free chat to see if this is right for you at the moment, please get in touch by phone or email.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Psychology BSc (Hons)
  • MSc Psychological Research Methods
  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Postgraduate Certificate of Education

I have experience of work with a range of individuals of all ages and issues, with helpful outcomes for all of them.

Member organisations


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.
