About me

Hello, I am Robert and I am an experienced and qualified counsellor and psychotherapist.

What I Offer:
I can offer you a warm and empathic counselling approach, within a comfortable safe environment based in Cheltenham. I offer you a means of understanding yourself and finding solutions.

What I Believe
I am a strong believer that each of us ought to be the expert regarding our own thoughts, feelings, emotions and everyday processes. You may well have a strong sense of what you are currently struggling with, but you maybe cannot name or understand it right now. You know what it is that you do not want to feel or experience in your life anymore, but you maybe do not know how to go about making the necessary changes, or even where to begin. It is my fundamental belief that each of us has the potential to progress forward, to make positive changes and to gain a clearer perspective of ourselves and our lived. This goal is supported by the therapeutics relationship built and created between the counsellor and client. I will offer a safe, supportive, non-judgemental, professional approach that will value you as an individual.

How I Can Help, Have Helped
Sometimes, issues, events and situations from our past or present can stay with us and end up negatively impacting on our well-being today. Are you experiencing difficulties that are currently having an impact upon your relationships, job, happiness, well being and everyday life? I have helped adults survivors of childhood sexual and/or emotional abuse, individuals suffering form long and short term anxiety disorders and panic attacks, those struggling in relationships, sufferers from depression and hopelessness, victims of loss and individuals who struggle day to day coping

What's Important
It is important to have psychologically space without feeling judged, so that we can explore what it is that may be negatively impacting on our lives. My training and experience has taught me that I can help others by offering empathic, non-judgemental and non-directive approach. I will work with you at your pace and with the issues you feel comfortable sharing. I will support you by helping you to make sense of why you feel the way you do, and to discover what it could be that has triggered your current emotions, thoughts and feelings.

People I work with

“Nobody chooses to suffer mental injury or ill health. But I can honestly say that my life has been made richer for the time I spent with Robert in a way I don’t think I would have had had I chosen anyone else”.
G.S. Client
