About me

It's easy to get stuck in a rut unable to find a way out, particularly when you feel you're dealing with it on your own. Talking to a trained therapist can help you look at your life and see it from a different perspective, so that you can make the changes you want to see. 

I appreciate that it's not easy to reach out to a stranger, so I offer a free 20 minute phone or video call where you can meet me before making a commitment. Just text "Therapy" to 07908 722459 and I'll aim to get back yo you within in 24 hours (Monday to Friday). 

As a qualified, registered therapist my practice centres around building an environment which fosters your sense empowerment, and an experience where you feel supported in what can at times be a difficult process. I work collaboratively with you to help you better understand yourself, your history, and your feelings with the emphasis that you are always in control. 

We aren't born with depression, anxiety, or low self esteem. We aren't born with compulsive or unhealthy thoughts and behaviours, and we aren't born feeling suicidal. They are the symptoms of how something is making us feel, how we've learned to cope, or what we think is our only option to relieve the pain we feel.  

Whether you're struggling with the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic, issues with self esteem, confidence, depression, or panic attacks. Or even if you have no name for what you're feeling, talking it through with a therapist in an environment which promotes your sense of safety and empowerment can help you make sense of your life and help you stop existing and surviving and begin living and thriving. 

Clients come to see me for many reasons, some of which are  childhood abuse and neglect, bullying, dealing with toxic work environments, dysfunctional families, shame, self image, self desteem, compulsive thoughts and behaviours, suicidal thoughts, relationship issues, traumatic events, imposter syndrome, self sabotage, and life crisis. 

I am based in Penenden Heath in Maidstone with good links via road and public transport. I also offer online sessions via Skype.

I am a registered member of the BACP (member number 384703), and I'm fully insured. I'm also fully vaccinated for Covid 19, maintain social distancing wherever possible, and perform regular lateral flow tests. 

If you would like any further information, or to arrange a free twenty minute initial meeting, either in person, via phone, or video call, simply text "Therapy" to 07908722459.

Best wishes

Dominic

Training, qualifications & experience

My practice is informed by my integrative training using humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitive models to work with the past and present, and how they influence our concept of who we are.

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.
