About me

Hi, I'm Simon. Thank you for visiting my profile page. I would describe myself as a, calm, open, honest, friendly and empathic individual who is passionate about helping people through difficult times in their lives.

Whatever it is that brings you to counselling, I will strive to offer you an environment and platform that is tailored to your needs as a person, after all  counselling is there to help you build upon your strengths and find the answers you have within yourself. My job is to help you make sense of the challenges that life has conjured up for you.

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 who does. 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. 

I predominantly offer outdoor counselling, as I believe the natural environment is an incredible therapeutic space to enable people to explore their thoughts and feelings, bringing physical and mental health together. Being within the restrictions of a therapy room isn’t for everyone, so why not try outdoor therapy. I work from various outdoor locations within North Lincolnshire

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.

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.
