About me

I work with adults in my private practice  from my home in Stonesfield, offering both long and short-term counselling.

Counselling sessions are for 50 minutes and usually take place once a week.

The fee for individuals is £40 per session, Lower fees and counselling frequency can be agreed depending on personal circumstances.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, accredited register number 214367.

My clients have come from all walks of life and seek advice concerning relationship and other issues that are troubling them at the moment - or just to take time out to reflect on how their lives are, thereby gaining clarity and perspective.

I see clients from small businesses to discuss issues concerning their staff.

I do not offer couples counselling.

I employ a solution-focused counselling approach, which results in real changes in the individual's way of life, improved relationships and an ability to maintain personal centredness in the face of current problems and pressures.

My experience as a business coach in both small and large companies also helps me provide business related counselling in addition to personal counselling, coming as it does from an extensive business related history, including as Marketing Director for a large multi-national pharmaceutical company, and as Principal Lecturer and Head of the Marketing Department at the University of Greenwich.

Please contact me to arrange a free talk by phone to help you decide whether you wish to make a meeting appointment.


"I have had counselling from Ian in relation to one of my daughters who for several years has refused to be in touch with me to talk about her childhood. Her rejection affects all the rest of the family and she is clearly very upset and angry. She lives abroad and does not respond to calls, letters or emails.

Ian very skilfully helped me to explore the complex circumstances behind the breakdown. He has a warm, gentle, caring manner and is a very patient listener.

He asks sensitive, thoughtful questions which helped deepen my understanding of what happened in our relationship.

He is able to listen and take notes which he then reflects on and asks further questions. You have the feeling that whatever you say he is absorbing into his understanding of you and what you are going through.

Ian then offered a sensitive summary of where he thought I had reached in my painful journey.
I found the whole counselling experience extremely helpful and supportive."
