About me

*In reflection of the coronavirus and the government's recommendation, I am currently offering telephone or video counselling. It is more important than ever in these testing times for us to continue talking about our mental health. Stay safe.*

My name is Philip, and I am an established counsellor and Psychologist with offices in:

Shoreditch                            Central London                                Therapy Online

My number one goal is to help you to visualise and conquer what is holding you back. Helping you to grow and change the way that you relate to others, yourself and the world in general.

I practice a wide range of disciplines including counselling, psychotherapy and psychology. My unique approach allows us to uncover and understand the origins of your habits and mental boundaries. Through discussion and exercises, we can conquer these barriers for you to be able to choose your own paths, create a fresh start and with a much clearer mindset.

I specialise in achieving fast results and I want to help you to create permanent change throughout your life. Whether you begin therapy with clear ideas of what you want or wish to find this out, my goal is to take that journey with you. Helping you to complete a successful journey to more fulfilled and happier you

Member organisations


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.

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.
