About me

It can be hard, starting therapy. Telling a stranger the story of your most painful experience or memory. Describing the darkness and crippling self-criticism of your thoughts. It might, for some, be the hardest thing they ever do... It's ok, I've got you.

Are you tired of living with self-doubt and anxiety? If you’re struggling with stress, anxiety or depression in your life and can’t, or don't want to just cope with it any more. I can help you get to the true cause. I work deeply with my clients to discover the origins of what’s going on for you, and what or who might be maintaining it. Depending on your requirement, I can be insightful, analytical and challenging. I also offer my easy going manner and sense of humour to help you feel comfortable, finding understanding and lasting positive change. 

Based in Whitley Bay, my professional training is of the highest BACP and UKCP standard. I’m a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor (Level 6 Diploma) offering online and face-to-face therapy sessions for those experiencing all kinds of issues from relationship and sexual difficulties, attachment, grief, depression and anxiety, all the way to complex PTSD from trauma and childhood sexual, psychological and physical abuse.

Are you suffering anxiety; Overwhelmed by a sense of worthlessness? Low self-esteem? I have in depth training and experience of helping people with issues ranging from grief, depression and loneliness, to existential anxiety, PTSD and suicidal thoughts. I can help alleviate stress and guide you through exploring your problems and emotions in a comforting, none judgemental atmosphere.

I'm an Integrative Humanistic Person Centred Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, which is a long-winded way of saying I combine many modalities of therapy including CBT, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, creative and analytical etc... But I also have a sense of humour, I'm creative in my style and have a flare for employing the use of metaphor, active imagination, Guided Imagery and dream analysis in promoting exploration of the subconscious mind. Sharing the journey to understanding and freeing my clients from unrealistic expectations and critical judgements of themselves is core to the way I work.

I'm a laid back guy, this helps my clients to feel relaxed and safe, vital for working in depth on issues such as historical trauma, sexual, physical and psychological abuse which require a strong therapeutic connection and trust.

Based in Whitley Bay, contact me to book a session or talk through your therapy options. We can talk about your problems, I’ll try and help you find solutions.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.
