My name is Graham, I am from Hull and have lived in the area all of my life and understand the culture and changing face of the City.
I have worked privately with clients for over twenty years since qualifying with Humberside University in 1997 with a diverse range of issues such as:
Stress, anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement, trauma, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, exercise therapy and many more situations.
I see everyone I work with as an individual and at their pace, while providing an individual approach with the person, allowing time to explore the difficulties. I value a non-judgemental approach and provide a safe practice in the West of Hull.

My therapy work covers a wide range of areas such as stress prevention and management, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work related stress, sexuality issues through serious illness, self-harm, bereavement, OCD and self-esteem issues. I worked within Humberside Police for over ten years delivering counselling and post trauma work on a one to one and group basis.

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.
