About me

THERAPY & YOU: Our lives are full of transition, and this process of change is inevitable and ongoing throughout the course of our lives. Transitional life experiences such as these can often lead us to reshape the way we think, feel, and behave. I have helped many different clients over the years overcome issues such as:

• Anxiety • Depression • Anger Management • Low Self-Esteem • Identity Issues and Transitions • Relationships and Family • Child & Teenage Developmental Issues • Addiction & Dependency Issues • Bereavement • Abuse • Bullying & Cyber Bullying • Work Stress & Burn Out • Trauma

I provide a free 10 minute consultation for us to discuss what you may be currently struggling with, and how I can help, after which of you wish to continue we can book a full 50 minute assessment to start the process at a time convenient to you.

Throughout our process together I will provide you with guidance and insight that will encourage you to reflect upon who you are today, and help determine where in your life you still seek some clarity or resolution. As your therapist I want to equip you with tools that help provide peace of mind, inner confidence and resilience, a greater personal sense of well-being, and increased self-awareness.

MY APPROACH:  My theoretical approaches includes; Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Attachment Theory, Child Developmental Psychology, Existential therapy, CBT, Transpersonal psychology and Psychosynthesis, Rational Emotional Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Mindfulness & Guided Meditation & Evolutionary Psychology.

TESTIMONIAL: " I came to meet Jonathan following an emotional and physical crisis. Through his caring, non-judgemental, compassionate approach, I have developed an understanding of my emotional history and why my current feelings and behaviour were so confusing. I have come to terms with past events and relationships and can now exist in the present without fear. For the first time in my life, I am in control of me. I cannot recommend Jonathan enough for anyone who is considering counselling or psychotherapy as a way to explore their behaviour and feelings to achieve a happy, confident, present self." (Testimonial -JS

EDITORIALS & BOOKS: I am  a published author with ‘Hodder & Stoughton’. I have been interviewed, quoted and written articles as an expert speaker for The Telegraph, The Independent, Readers Digest, Stylist Magazine, Stella Magazine, You Magazine & Daily Mail.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified CBT - SMART Group Facilitator, and certified in Motivational Interviewing, Rational Emotional Behavioural Therapy (REBT) & Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I have specialised within the field of addiction, anxiety disorders, depression, anger management and trauma work, including treatment centres, where I have worked extensively and diversely. This has led me to develop the U.N.I.T.E.S model, which I use additionally with Families, Couples Counselling, Group Therapy, Structureu Group Workshops and One to One Psychotherapy Sessions, with great success.

Member organisations


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.
