About me

Are you struggling with heightened anxiety, low mood, anger, addition or other emotional issues? I offer psychological therapy to help you on your way to improved emotional wellbeing. Engaging in therapy can help improve your day to day mood, your sleep, increase motivation and enhance your relationships.

I have 17 years experience providing psychological therapy in the NHS and is a lecturer in counselling and psychotherapy at the University of Leeds. Stuart works to help people overcome a wide range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, addiction and stress management.

Stuart received the 2016 Outstanding Research Award from the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and continues to publish his work in respected scientific journals.

Why I chose to become a therapist

My lived experience as a person with a disability fundamentally shaped my desire to help others. Being part of a marginalised group gives you a unique perspective from the fringes of society. Initially my motivation came from a place of a deep need to have meaningful connections from my position of isolation. Now, I have come to appreciate what it means to be on the edge of the mainstream in a new way through acknowledging my own capacity to be creative, adaptive and resourceful, qualities which I hopefully bring to my work when reaching out to others who know what it means to be isolated, marginalised and overlooked.
