About me

Hi, I'm Ross. I offer confidential, discreet, sensitive and non-judgemental counselling. I work from a humanistic perspective and appreciate each person as an individual.

I have several years of counselling experience and qualified through The University of Nottingham with a BA (hons) in humanistic counselling. Since that time I have continued to train and develop exploring many differing aspects of mental-health and counselling.

I have trained and worked in a range of approaches from short-term work to more in-depth therapy. I have experience of solution-focused therapy, nutritional aspects and much more. I believe my way of working is tailored to your needs with a steady base of being kind, supportive and encouraging.

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.
