Hello, I'm Ian and I am a qualified male counsellor. My approach is to offer you a safe environment, free from judgement to discuss whatever you wish and together we can work towards your goals. I have a background of working in different environments, and worked with small to large teams for all my working life. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)
I work as a person centered therapist. This means I can help create an environment where you can bring whatever you like into the therapy room. I will not judge you, and you can speak freely. Together we can work towards your goals. We move at your speed and pace. I can offer short-term or long-term work, face-to-face or online. I offer weekend and evening appointments
Starting therapy can be daunting, I can understand that choosing a counsellor/therapist is a huge decision. How I work is I offer the opportunity to speak to me first, I have listed my contact details - phone, email and on social media, and we can arrange an introduction and first session.
I have experience of working with stress, anxiety, depression, work-related issues, loss and bereavement, low self esteem, and addiction.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
