About me

About my Counselling Service

I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor working from a private practice in Great Waltham, Essex and from the City of London.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work with both adults and young people offering short and long term therapy.

I offer a confidential, warm, friendly, supportive, non judgemental environment. A space where you can feel safe to talk about your feelings, thoughts, fears and concerns.

My role as a therapist is to work with you to help you understand and clarify what it is that is troubling you and to help you find ways to work through your issues.

We can work together to help enhance your self awareness and resilience as we work towards achieveing a healthy, positive outcome.

My Counselling Approach

I have an integrative counselling approach, this enables me to draw upon a range of approaches and techniques, including person centred, psychodynamic and Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).  I tailor my therapy to meet my individual client's needs and I use these approaches to help my clients explore their issues.

Through my own personal experience I understand that it can be difficult to start therapy and to choose a Counsellor. I am aware that it can feel uncomfortable and challenging, therefore I aim to support you on your journey by listening to you, by having empathy and understanding, by creating a warm, trusting relationship and by sometimes challenging you when appropriate. We can work together to help you achieve your goals, gain confidence and moved forward.

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.


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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

As a male counsellor I have experience and understanding of working with men who are dealing with personal issues including, relationship problems, work related stress and anxiety, work pressures and expectations, sexual problems, sexual health, addictions, alcohol and drug issues. I am aware that some men are more comfortable talking openly about these issues with another man.

I have many years of experience of working with young people. I understand the difficulties faced during childhood, school life and as teenagers. How influences and past experiences, upbringing, expectations of others and the pressure to fit in can affect mental health.

I have understanding and experience of working with LGBTQ clients, I am aware of the difficulties Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning individuals face throughout life. I have worked with clients and groups struggling with issues including: coming out, family breakdown, relationships, homophobia, illness, health, HIV, AIDS, domestic violence, homelessness, drugs and alcohol, addictions, sex, sexual abuse, loss and bereavement, religion, culture, civil partnerships, marriage, self-harm and self-esteem, anxiety, depression, isolation, loneliness and peer pressure. I have also supported LGBT Q family members and children.

I provide groups sessions. A group can provide a support network and the opportunity to meet other people who are experiencing similar situations. As a therapist I work with the group to provide a safe environment where individuals can explore their experiences, interact, and work towards understanding themselves better.
