About me

I believe we are born to grow – not just physically, but for our whole selves to develop into our potential. Things happen in life – past events or current circumstances – that affect us and seem to get in the way of us moving on with our lives.

By drawing on different theoretical approaches to counselling and psychotherapy, I offer gentle ways of working with these things so they are no longer such large obstacles. I like to call it ‘tilling the earth to prepare the ground for green shoots of new growth’.

Whether you are looking for shorter term counselling or longer term psychotherapy (or perhaps you’re not sure!), come along and meet me for a free introductory chat about how I can support you on your journey.

Feedback from recent clients include:

“I really appreciated your approach to me as a person.”

R from Teignmouth

"A safe space was provided."

"I felt very at ease and able to develop a relationship with Justin, something I struggled to achieve with other therapists."

C from Torquay

"I feel a lot better now and feel more positive about my future."

D from Brixham

“Justin’s approach is always caring and kind and full of grace.”

Further information

Here’s the jargon-y bit for people who are interested and for students of counselling / psychotherapy: I am an integrative therapist – more influenced by person centred, psychosynthesis, and focusing oriented psychotherapy than other theoretical approaches.

I operate from my permanent therapy premises in Torquay.

If you would like to meet me in my premises for a free, no obligation, introductory session, please call me or email to arrange a convenient time.
