About me

Worried about your relationship?
Have your feeling towards your partner changed?
Do you have fears about being judged?
Unsure of why you keep repeating the same destructive patterns?
Do you feel you are not good enough?
Feel like it is going end anyway/They will leave me?

I am an experienced counsellor who specializes in relationship issues, self-esteem, and sexual difficulties.
I understand that it can be particularly difficult for men to undertake counselling and consider myself able to identify and support male issues
Equally, many female clients appreciate my ability to give a male perspective, which they find useful and refreshing.
If you would like to arrange an initial reduced consultation (£20), please contact me on the numbers/email provided

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
