The modern world can be a very daunting and stressful place with many challenges from family, friends, work and society. Psychotherapy provides the opportunity for people to explore issues, understand them and work towards a resolution in a holding, nurturing and non-judgemental environment.
Sessions available via phone/Skype/Zoom during the COVID19 lockdown.
I have been a practicing psychotherapist for a number of years and through this time have developed an effective approach that combines counselling techniques to develop coping mechanisms and improves short term symptoms coupled with a more in-depth psychotherapy approach that looks at the underlying cause. This dual process approach creates short term gains for the client, positive momentum in their chosen direction and ultimately a greater understanding of the underlying issues that have contributed towards the issue. I see therapy as a joint journey between client and therapist and whilst I have considerable theoretical and practical training to refer to I am conscious that the process is highly individual, as such my aim is to empower the individual.
I have recently added the PTSD/Trauma/Phobia rewind technique, guided imagery and NLP Master Practitioner (online course) and Couples Counselling (online course) to my repertoire.
I am a registered Member of the BACP and follow their ethical guidelines with regular supervision. I completed additional training upgrading my skills to a full Honours Degree and I have been a volunteer psychotherapist with exposure to a wide variety of relational issues that include working with over 16’s, substance abuse, relationship and general mental well-being issues with approx. 1,300 hours of client work.
My background is a successful 20+ year career in engineering management with a reputation for building successful and highly motivated teams. I also offer business coaching and executive coaching services for a very focused work related approach.

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.
