About me

Hi. I'm Aitch. I'm an integrative psychotherapist, and what is most important to me is that you feel safe to talk openly with me. We can work together to discover what feeling safe means to you, to create a place where you are comfortable enough to share your challenges. 

I provide medium and long term therapy for adults.

I specialise in neurodivergence (ADHD, autism & learning challenges), anxiety, depression, change & life transitions, but I'm happy to talk to you about any therapy needs. If I can't help you I probably know someone who can.

My approach
My approach is fundamentally person-centred, but I use different approaches and ways of working depending on what it is you would like to address. This varies with each person but can be anything from person-centred therapy to art therapy approaches, from storytelling to working with ways to connect with nature. I have also trained in therapeutic shamanism, so if that interests you, we can introduce shamanic approaches to look differently at what is happening in your world.

About me
I have had a somewhat meandering journey to psychotherapy, with many perilous mountains to climb, rivers to wade through, and beasts to battle. I came out as non-binary and was diagnosed ADHD with suspected autism in my 50’s. I’m now seeing more clearly the challenges others experience - in their work, their relationships, with their sense of identity, as a result of being neurodivergent.  I have worked with neurodivergent clients, but also with clients with eating disorders, long term chronic illness, depression, anxiety and with people dealing with the impact of domestic abuse.

I’m very creative, and interested in everything from psychology to physics, comparative religion to engineering. I adore animals and I relax by playing computer games or walking in the woods. I’m basically still the kid who was into everything that I was when I was little. But much older, and definitely wiser.

Please email me for a chat about your needs. I look forward to meeting you.

Member organisations

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.
