About me

Hi, I’m an experienced therapist with fifteen years working in the NHS and independently. I love helping people to overcome their problems and have an excellent record of doing that with a diverse group of clients. 

I can help with a wide range of issues, such as symptoms of anxiety and depression and the vulnerabilities which can sometimes under-pin these. These issues can include low self-esteem, eating disorders, body image issues, perfectionism, addictions, relationship issues and past traumas or abuse, to name a few. 

I will bring a warm, engaging and collaborative spirit to our work to meet your needs flexibly. We might start by understanding any patterns or experiences that have led you to feel distressed and then draw these together into a visual map that explains what’s keeping you stuck. We will then work together to find the steps that work to release you from these old familiar patterns. These might be drawn from your strengths and life experiences or from some of the powerful techniques for ‘head and heart’ change that I have used to help people countless times. 

The ideas and techniques that I use to help come from a range of different therapies. Many of these come from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Schema Therapy but I also have training in other approaches including Interpersonal Therapy and Mindfulness. Within all of this the biggest resource is often our relationship, providing a safe place to step back and begin to see things in a different way. Techniques to change unhelpful behaviours, challenge unhelpful thinking and transform your ‘felt sense’ are often also essential to the work. Many of these become tools that you can draw on beyond the sessions as you learn to become your own skilful helper. 

In a later phase of therapy we might start to meet less frequently, focussing on strengthening the progress you have made in our work, as well as making a plan for coping if things change. 

If you are curious about us working together, please get in touch so that we can talk about how I can help you make the changes you need to start thriving again. 


"Speaking with Seth was incredibly helpful in helping me to challenge negative thought patterns. The focus of our sessions was quite practical in terms of techniques I could use to change these. I would highly recommend working with Seth. I sometimes have top-up sessions and whether it's been a few months or even a year, it's always helpful to get me back on track."

"Thanks to Seth, I have re-discovered the person I was 35 years ago and I like her. I’m very happy now and despite more challenges having come my way, I feel better equipped to move forward. If I have an off day, I continue to use the strategies offered to me by Seth. I used Zoom for my sessions and this was very effective."

"I achieved outcomes from working with Seth that exceeded my expectations. He was effective in helping me to deal with the thoughts and feelings that were troubling me, but also enabled me to look beyond them to a much deeper change in my life, based on much greater self-awareness and self-compassion. Seth has empowered me to build more loving and authentic relationships with my family and with my self."

"My therapy sessions with Seth have been a game-changer. Seth is welcoming, non-judgemental and I really valued his flexible approach to how and what we worked through each session. Working through my challenges with Seth has given me clarity, helped me see some of my blind spots and given me more confidence using healthier coping mechanisms moving forward. I'd recommend Seth to family and friends who were struggling and wanted someone professional to talk to. I can't thank him enough for his support in a tough time!"

"Seth helped me understand and manage an issue that had troubled me for many many years. I appreciated that he created a therapy environment that was open and collaborative. By working with Seth, I have seen improvements in my general wellbeing in addition to the specific issue I came to with him. Thank you."

"I reached out to Seth based on a friend's recommendation when I was facing a challenging family situation and felt like I was spiralling. Seth helped me work through these issues in a compassionate, kind manner and equipped me with tools and frameworks I used to challenge unhealthy thoughts and beliefs. However, I was especially impressed with the fact that Seth was also able to identify how these beliefs might be affecting other areas of my life, including work, friendships, and relationships. By addressing these as well, I came away with a much deeper understanding of myself and the ability to navigate life in a more level-headed matter - without relying on unhealthy coping mechanisms. On a day-to-day basis, it feels like a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders, and when issues do arise, I'm able to bounce back way more quickly. I'm truly grateful for the work we have done together and would highly recommend Seth."

“I had a year of weekly sessions with Seth.  It was very productive and I learnt a helpful set of Cognitive-behavioural techniques to assist me in coping with a late life depression.  He always listened very carefully and his insights and comments were always  pertinent and useful.  He proved a trustworthy support in the occasional severe crisis and I am indebted to him for helping me get back on a better path in life.”
