About me

We're living through a strange and uncertain time. Know that I am available to support you using video and telephone. Help is available. My counselling practice comes from my belief in the unique transformative power that every human being possesses. I provide you with an open space for exploration and creativity.

I welcome any distress, confusion or pain you may be experiencing and will sit with you and provide support, reflection and new perspectives while you do whatever you feel you need to do. I also welcome your joy, love and self-acceptance. We will meet in an unjudging space and form a relationship which allows you to access new ways to express yourself and come to terms with what it is to be a human being.

I offer one to one confidential therapy sessions that last fifty minutes. Currently I work with adults who are 18 and over. This can be for a fixed period, decided by you, or we can work together indefinitely and end when the time feels right. Sessions happen at the same time and place each week, and I am open to discussing Skype or telephone sessions.

I am a humanistic counsellor and use Gestalt methods - please do ask if this language is unfamiliar to you. I identify as a gay man and I have worked extensively with the GSRD, queer and LGBTQ+ communities. Please do get in touch by email, which you can find above, or find out more at my personal website, link on the left. I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
