About me

I am more than happy to have a brief prior arranged telephone conversation with you to discuss any questions you may have. Please text or e-mail me to arrange a time: 07563241359 and herman@stamfordpsychotherapist.co.uk

Psychotherapy and counselling is more than a career for me; it's a passion. I regard myself as fortunate to work in the field after 25 years of varied experience.

Kind regards


Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a PhD in Systemic Therapy and a Masters in Online Therapy. My experience spans 25 years ranging from my role as a psychotherapist in an independent GP practice, a contracted couples and relationship counsellor with Relate, other institutional roles and private practice.

Online experience: Since 2010. My Masters dissertation (2013) was on the feasibility of online counselling. The indications are predominantly positive. I use whatever platform suits my clients, usually Skype, FaceTime, Whatsapp or telephone.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
