About me

In my practice I offer Integrative Psychotherapy, which I find to be very helpful for - anxiety, depression, loss, self-doubt, career concerns, relationship issues, family dynamics, addictions, stress, sexuality, LGBT issues, self-doubt and low self-esteem.

I have had a private practice for over 10 years now. Previously I worked as a Designer for over 20 years before re-training and changing direction. I continue to work creatively and art is a big part of my life.

Psychotherapy, which is also a very creative process, offers a unique opportunity to gain new perspectives that may not yet have been considered. This opens things up and anxious beliefs that may have been the cause of stress start to shift and change. As a result tension, fear, stress and confusion begins to ease as more possibilities and understandings arise.

What to expect

For individuals -

We aim to meet on a weekly basis and this can be for a defined period of time or on an on-going arrangement. Our work is confidential and I provide a safe space for you to talk about the things that are troubling you. These may be be current or they may be difficulties that you've been struggling with for some time. I ask all clients to keep a psychotherapy journal in which to make notes, record dreams and do some of the exercises I offer. It helps to have a record so that you can assess how things will have progressed and changed.

Below is what a recent client offered at the end of our work together -

“Therapy is not just about sitting and listening, it’s about actively choosing to make a change in the behaviors that are bringing you down. While this can be incredibly daunting, I have found that applying the techniques I learned in therapy have helped me immeasurably.” (2018)

For couples -

Often couples who come to work with me describe having lost connection with each other. This loss of connection is very painful and is often at the heart of most relationship conflict. I see much of my work as helping couples to find their way back into connection.

We aren't taught how to be in a relationship or how best to express our needs and fully understand the needs of our partner. What I offer is an opportunity for couples to learn new ways to communicate and as a result develop a deeper understanding of yourself, your partner and the relationship itself.

Here’s what a recent client said at the end of our work together -

“Couples therapy has been such a wonderful, life-changing experience for me. I think there is a taboo about seeking help if you are a young couple and are not yet married or have children. I am so glad we came to see Neil; he has given us so many techniques and created a space in which to really get to know each other and consciously decide how we would like too cultivate our relationship.” (2018)
