About me

My name is Simon and I work as a Psychotherapist in Private Practice in London. I can offer therapy online or face to face at my office in Hammersmith on a short term or long-term basis depending on your goals. 

We have all recently had to face the turmoil of COVID-19. For some of us it meant feeling the loneliness of extended isolation, the fear of uncertainty for the future or possibly anger at the effects it had on our close relationships. Therapy is a healing way of finding your true self and reflect on what's really important in your life post pandemic. 

Clients who come to me for help usually have high levels of anxiety or depression and find themselves in repeating patterns within their relationships or at work that make them unhappy. I would offer you a safe, containing space where you could talk about and explore anything that’s difficult or overwhelming. 

We all have emotional needs and problems often arise when those needs are unmet. I would carefully explore which of your emotional needs were unmet during your childhood and possibly in your present life. I would help you process any difficult feelings you may regularly experience whether that be overwhelming fear, persistent sadness, crushing pain, paralysing grief or problematic anger or rage. Once these feelings are accepted and integrated, healing can take place and your life can flow again. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as an integrative therapist and hold two diplomas in Counselling. This included training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Person-centred Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I have also trained in Group Psychotherapy and Narrative Therapy for Addiction Treatment. I worked within a clinical team for 6 years delivering individual therapy as well as co-facilitating various Psychotherapy groups helping clients with attachment issues, anger management and addictions. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

Research indicates that the best predictor of therapeutic change is the strength of the therapeutic relationship. Everyone is different and has life experiences that are unique. I will work with you in a collaborative way so that you can feel enough trust and safety to talk about things that you may never have been able to previously.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
