About me

Hello my name is Scott, I'm a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working out of East Grinstead, with experience of working with adolescents and adults. For me therapy is about focusing on what enables and empowers individuals to be who they are. I believe passionately that this is possible by opening ourselves up to a process which encourages the client to explore what individuality means to them in relationship with other. It feels important this is considered alongside the backdrop of the social constructs that influence their understanding of who they are as human beings.

Finding the right therapist can be daunting, especially if you're unsure as to what you want out of therapy. One of our greatest needs as human beings is to be noticed, to feel heard and valued for who we are and the first steps to bringing about this change is through greater awareness and knowledge. If these ideas mobilise something inside of you and you feel driven to get more both from your intimate and professional relationships then give me a call or send me an email.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP registered therapist who has a Post Graduate Diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling from Brighton University. I subscribe to the BACP and their Code of Ethics and Professional practice. For ten years I worked as a senior manager in special education, specifically working with adolescents and children who have educational statements around emotional and behavioural difficulties. I am an accredited mediator with CEDR (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution) and have worked as a behavioural consultant with various organisations around improving their dispute resolution processes. As well as having a private practice in Lingfield and East Grinstead I work on a voluntary basis as a psychotherapeutic counsellor for two NHS medical centres in South London. I have a passion for working alongside and with difference and diversity, specifically with individuals and groups that feel marginalised and disaffected with society. This has led me to develop a particular interest and focus on Anger Management and Conflict and raising individuals awareness as to how they make contact with people both in their private and professional life.
