About me

I’m an experienced counsellor working in Lewes and Brighton. Counselling with me is an opportunity to explore concerns, problems or worries in complete confidentiality. Many of my clients work with me long term, while others focus on a specific issue over a few sessions.

My counselling qualification is from the Re-Vision Centre in London, and I work in an Integrative style, crafting a therapeutic approach to fit each client. My approach is transpersonal, which is to say includes aspects of spirituality, meaning, purpose, ecology and culture that go beyond the individual. I am the author of a book on Eastern Philosophy, and have a lifelong interest in Indian spirituality. My first degree from Oxford was in English Literature and poetry and if you are someone who enjoys the arts then that can be an aspect of our work together.

Studies show that counsellors who continue to develop their skills provide a better service than those do not. I attend a number of courses and conferences each year, and I'm currently completing a three-year advanced training in Somatic Experiencing (qualifying in 2018), a body psychotherapy that is effective for trauma, emotions held in the body and PTSD.

I have special interests in relationships, trauma, depression, anxiety and personal development. I include within my approach body psychotherapy, movement, and spirituality.

I'm the father of three children, two grown up and a baby daughter. Previously I had a business career in sports events, and I'm a lifelong fan of Liverpool FC.

My practice is busy, but I can usually find space for a new client. If you would like a session to explore whether we can work together I would be happy to see you. Alternatively, please look at the blog on my website where you can get a sense of who I am and whether you might want to meet.

At any one time I have 25% of my clients on a reduced fee. If you would need an arrangement like this, please get in touch and I would be happy to discuss this with you.
