About me

I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist trained in both Lancaster (FdA) and Staffordshire University (BSc Hons). Whether you prefer having therapy in person or online, I am committed to provide you a warm and non-judgemental environment, allowing you to be heard and understood, while, at the same time utilising scientifically-proven psycho-therapeutic methods to help you lead a happier and more satisfying life!

In my practice you will:

  • Discover and explore those conscious and sub-conscious aspects of yourself that are adversely impacting your life.
  • Practice powerful easy-to-use techniques to help you manage your thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
  • Acquire key psychological concepts of the workings of the mind.

My approach draws on many proven therapeutic theories, especially from humanistic and cognitive schools of thought. I have an interest in experiential psychotherapy drawing on the bodily felt immediate experiencing of the client's organism. This was also the topic of my most recent dissertation (The Client's Bodily Felt Sense: A Phenomenological Study -https://www.researchgate.net/publication/341941337_The_Client's_Bodily_Felt_Sense_A_Phenomenological_Study/stats)

''Philipp was so easy to chat to and he fully understood my issues and how to help me deal with them. I found the whole process to be very effective and I've been amazed by the difference in my quality of life. Philipp managed to make me feel at ease and relaxed to the point I talked more than I would ever to someone. With this kind of atmosphere and feeling so able to talk about my problems without judgement made me be able to see things more clearly and take a step back. Once I was able to talk about what was going on inside my head it made it so much easier to deal with the thoughts rationally. I wish I'd done this years ago..." - C.R.

"Philipp, Thanks for your support over the past few weeks. It has been so different from my previous experiences and is much appreciated" - D.T.

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.

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.
