About me

My name is Jeremy, I offer short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy for a range of issues, from day-to-day worries to complex psychological conditions. I am a BACP registered counsellor providing therapy for individuals and couples for over ten years.

I can help you manage anxiety and overcome depression. I have expertise in problems related to substance misuse and dependency, OCD, PTSD, BPD, sexual abuse, domestic abuse - low self-esteem - sexual dysfunction

I use the most up to date techniques of evidence-based practice to help people shift psychological blockages.

What can I expect to gain from counselling?

I will provide you with a safe space where you  can explore what is concerning you. I have helped many people understand the nature of their problems and guided them towards healing. I am confident that I have the ability to assist you with whatever you bring into therapy.

How do I know that the counselling I receive will be worth the money spent?

What price can be put on being rid of problems which are deeply affecting your life? What would it be like to be free of the issues that are upsetting you, and holding you down?

In many cases, the price of a single session can be far less than money spent every week maintaining a particular habit.

What value can be attached to personal well-being? An increase in mental health has profound implications for life improvement. Whether it is lifting depression, curtailing anxiety, ridding yourself of addiction, or coming to terms with loss.

Mission Statement:

I will provide confidential and private therapy. I ensure the best possible practice with the sole aim of assisting clients to improve the quality of mental health and well-being

As a client, you will receive a welcoming and a very safe environment for you to explore whatever is most important to you - You will be listened to sensitively and at no point will you be judged. Confidentiality is assured.

Together we will unpack the complexities of the things which brings you to counselling. We shall clarify your ideas and increase your understanding and greatly reduce any stress associated with these problems.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

More than ever before, people are discovering the benefits of speaking with a professionally trained counsellor. Communicating our hopes and fears will help us to get our ideas into perspective and gain more clarity. Talking seems a simple human act, yet the complex pressures placed upon individuals lives and the people around us, often lead to a breakdown in communication and cause so much misunderstanding. Counselling will help bridge these gaps for you.

There are many reasons why people seek counselling. Anxiety and depression are increasingly recognised as widespread phenomena which are treatable without the use of medication, in many cases more effectively. Counselling is now widely recognised as having far greater and more lasting benefits than the use of drugs. Understanding the underlying nature of our problems allows us to take control of the symptoms. Counselling provides a moment in time to reflect and explore the reasons we have arrived at our present.
