About me

Hi I'm Simon, I would describe myself as a congruent, honest, empathic individual who is passionate about helping people through difficult times in their lives. I myself needed the help of a counsellor a number of years ago, as I was experiencing some difficult times in my life, but can honestly say it was incredibly helpful to explore my feelings and reflect on the interactions I had with my counsellor, leading to me gaining more confidence and self-esteem

I thoroughly believe it takes a lot of courage and strength to ask for help and access a service like counselling, and have the upmost respect for anyone walking through my therapy room door. I predominantly practice the person-centred approach to counselling as I believe everyone deserves to be truly heard in an unconditional manner. We can live our lives thinking and feeling concerned about what other people think of us and what judgements are made, but I strive to help people identify their own and strengths and make autonomous decisions based on them and their own personal needs.

I have worked with both children and adults as both a therapist and life coach in many areas such as bereavement, anxiety, depression, trauma, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, victims of crime/violence, unemployment, identity, divorce etc giving me over 7 years experience of working with people on a 1 to 1 basis. Pryor to that I worked within the homeless sector for three years and family support services for 5 years.

My therapy room is based in the centre of Scunthorpe within easy access to three car parks that offer 2 free hours parking during the day and free parking after 6pm
