About me

Our lives are full of transition, and this process of change is inevitable and ongoing throughout the course of our lives. But, transitional life experiences such as these can often lead us to reshape the way we think, feel, and behave.

Over the years, I have helped many different clients successfully 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

FREE CONSULTATION: 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, we can then book a full 50 minute assessment to start the process at a time most convenient for 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, 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.

COST & SERVICES: All services below cost £100 per 50 minute session.

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 successfully published Author with ‘Hodder & Stoughton’. I have been interviewed, quoted and written articles as an expert speaker for The Times, The Telegraph, The Independent, Metro, Grazia, Readers Digest, Stylist Magazine, Stella Magazine, You Magazine & Daily Mail.

MEDIA: I have recently been part of providing Free Mental Health Advice & Discussions with Julia Bradbury called 'The Lockdown Sessions' and was asked to be part of her most recent series Cornwall & Devon Walks, as I am the pioneer of Walking Therapy, a model that is now commonly used as an alternative to sitting face-to-face in the therapy room.

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.
