Hello, I am Philip! I am a trauma and gender identity Therapist, working affirmatively with clients from varied life paths for the past two years. Surviving life adversities, often for many years, can leave us feeling confused, afraid, misunderstood and hurt. At times, we may resort in hiding aspects of ourselves we deem shameful, engage in critical self talk and disconnect from parts of life that get too much. We may feel stuck and unfulfilled. Finding the space we need to feel seen, safe and empowered may be hard, yet it is something part of us knows we deserve.
Together, we will strive to help you feel embraced and compassionate towards yourself, feel worthy and enough. Feel more you. Our therapeutic relationship will be one between equals and one where you will be unconditionally accepted, listened to and nurtured. Trusting people isn’t always easy; feeling intimidated and hesitant often makes sense.
So, get in touch to talk about your worries, concerns, questions, and together we can work on making sure this feels safe and meets your needs. Thank you for looking at my Counselling Profile. I am looking forward to hearing from you!
Training, qualifications & experience
- Counselling & Psychotherapy MSc, Bangor University / 2020

I have been working with clients for over two years now. Outside of my private practice, I have worked with the NHS, as well as various charities in Wales and England.
To ensure my professional growth, I undertake regular and ongoing training in a wide range of mental health topics.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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.

Having worked with people from various life paths, I am experienced working with a wide range of struggles. Specifically, I most commonly work with people experiencing the painful aftermath of surviving trauma.
