About me

My name is Kevin, I am a qualified Intragrative counsellor.I have a Bachelor of science degree and Diploma in Higher education, both in Therapeutic counselling which I studied at Leeds Beckett University. This teaching of the various theories and psychology added to my own life experiences to give me an insight into the human psyche and how we can be affected by so much through our lives. I am also a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy

For me, counselling is a vocation not a job. My own personal experiences and my counselling training has enabled me to understand myself better and my patterns of behaviour. It has also taught me counselling is an effective tool at giving understanding and obtain the skills to change and allow growth within us. My passion for counselling motivates me to always keep learning and understanding a person’s behaviour and thought process. To be able to apply coping mechanisms for the client to help create a positive way to help with their issues and discard the negative behavioural patterns we can adopt through our issues. Through this relationship we work together to give understanding, confidence and ways to see more than one path.

As well as private practice I am also Lead Clinical Director of a counselling charity. Through both I work with clients of all ages, adolescents and adults. I treat each client individually as I understand everyone is unique and needs specific therapy appropriate to them. In the charity I am also the Complex Clients counsellor where I connect with clients with severe issues that impact on their life such as ASD, anxiety, anger management, abuse (sexual, physical, emotional), bereavement, domestic abuse, self-harm, gender identity, psychosis, suicide as well as other issues. In my roles I work with other services such as the NHS, CAMHS, Gp surgeries, social services, schools & colleges & other mental health services.
