Who am I and why come to therapy?
I am Scott and I am a Humanistic and Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. Challenges that life brings can at times make us feel that we can't move forward. Therapy gives us the chance to reach out to someone who can help us. Sometimes we want to change but don't have the tools to do it by ourselves. Therapy enables us to discover who we truly are, to heal old wounds, and move on to the next stage in our lives, becoming who we were meant to be and allowing us to live our lives to our full potential.
What I believe and how I can help you.
I fundamentally believe that all of us have the ability to change to become the best version of ourselves, whatever that may be. Each of us is beautifully unique and I embrace that uniqueness. I believe that true change occurs when people are offered a relationship that is different to what they have experienced before. This is why I offer my clients a relationship based on empathy, understanding and that is non-judgmental, where you can explore your feelings and experiences safely and where we face them together. I am trained to integrate different theories of psychotherapy so that we can gain a greater insight into what you have experienced and what is going on in the present moment.
I can work both long and short term depending on what issues you would like to bring to therapy.

I understand that taking the first step and approaching a therapist can be daunting, but please know that my priority is you and you getting what you need, there is no pressure. If you would like to know more about how I work then please contact me either via phone or email and I will answer any questions that you may have and if you are happy, we can then book your initial therapy session.

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.
