Welcome to my profile - I offer friendly and in-depth online Psychotherapy for individuals and couples. The areas that I work with include; anxiety, LGBTQ+, social anxiety, relationship difficulties, sex and sexuality, trauma and low self-esteem. My style is organic. We'll talk together and I'll ask questions in order for you to go deeper. This approach enables me to best understand what life is really like for you and how effectively to move forward in our work. I also offer a number of tools to help transform anxiety and deal with challenging and stressful situations.
The style of my work is integrative, which means I use different models depending on your needs and I have over 15 years of experience. Clients come to work with me for a variety of reasons, seeking support with; stress, low moods and feeling down, career changes, loss of confidence, loss of purpose and meaning, relationship betrayals and conflict and difficult family dynamics.
Talking therapy can help you better understand repeating patterns and whatever might be holding you back or keeping you stuck. You may have the feeling or desire to change something about your life but don't know where to start. Talking this through, giving voice to it with me offering an outside perspective enables insight, ease and clarity.
As a UKCP and BACP registered Integrative Psychotherapy I have a Masters Degree and Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapy. Prior to training as a therapist, I worked as a Designer.
“Therapy with Neil has helped me find some order during a very chaotic and difficult period in my life. Simply saying the words helped shine some light but the real benefit for me was putting structure to my thoughts and feelings. Being in an environment without an agenda and without judgment helped me better understand myself.” London, 2021.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
