About me

Hello, my name is Ian and I am a qualified male counsellor. My approach is to offer you a safe environment to be able to discuss whatever you wish, free from judgement, 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.

Member organisations

BACP

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 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.
