About me

If you are trying to do everything right in life but you just end up feeling worse about yourself, then keep reading.

Expectations to succeed in every area of life are everywhere. We have expectations placed on us from others in our life, and we place even more onto ourselves.

These expectations and trying to stay on top of all areas of life, can lead to neglecting the most important aspect: ourselves, our self-esteem, self-worth, confidence and resilience slowly erode, leaving us drained and feeling like we are failing. In response; we try even harder to stay on top of things, eroding ourselves further. It’s a trapped cycle!

Counselling can help pause this trapped cycle and give you a moment to reflect in a safe environment free from judgement or expectations. By exploring the issues you are having with a professional, you will develop insights and self-awareness, build new strategies and foster your resilience so that you can take on the challenges in your life.

I am not your stereotypical image of a Counsellor/Therapist. As a young, male Counsellor, I bring a differing experience and perspective to our sessions. If you are looking for a dynamic, proactive and engaging person to offer you both respect and challenge, we could be a good fit.

In counselling you will discover:

  • An environment where you will feel heard and acknowledged.
  • A greater sense of self-awareness.
  • Improved Resilience.
  • Increased self-esteem, self-worth and confidence.
  • New coping strategies to deal with or overcome issues.
  • Ways to prioritise and maintain your self-care.

I believe that you are the expert in your life, and so you are the best person to know what steps to take to address what you are going through. In sessions together, you have the chance to break out of these trapped cycles and work towards positive changes in your life.

So if you would like to take the first step out of these cycles, and towards living with your self-worth in mind, click the Message Me button at the top of the page to arrange a first session.

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.
