About me

Hi, I'm Ian, I've been counselling for the past 24 years in various organisations in South Africa and in the UK. As an integrative counsellor and mindful practitioner I combine different models of counselling together with mindfulness. I initially trained as a person centred/ humanistic counsellor and than later went on to become a trauma counsellor where I studied Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and worked with victims of violent crime, rape and domestic abuse. I developed my mindful practice around about the same time and over the years it has naturally become part of the work I now do as a therapist. My mindfulness practice encourages me to see ourselves more holistically, so taking into consideration how our thoughts, physical health, physical and social environments impact on our mental, emotional and physical well-being. Our past experiences have an enormous influence on who we become and how we move forward, so although my practice is focused on the here and now I believe that it can be beneficial to talk about past events in a confidential non-threatening environment. I support people of all ages with a wide range of difficulties.

I offer both short term counselling -usually 6 to 8 sessions, or longer term counselling depending on your individual requirements.

The easiest way to contact me is to send me an email or text with your contact details and I'll get back to as soon as I can.

I look forward to meeting you.
