About me

Hello,

Therapy isn’t a magic wand. It’s a process that only works when you feel completely at ease with your therapist.

Once you feel that relationship works, the possibilities are endless. My aim is not just to help you confront the immediate challenge or fear that has lead you to seek therapy, but to help you understand and grow. Ultimately, I want to help you facilitate lasting change.

So please contact me any time to say hello. There’s no obligation or fee to chat. We can decide whether to explore the possibility of a first meeting – be it in person, online, or over the phone.

I am trained in a variety of approaches and my role is to adapt them to you, your relationships, your background and your experience. My first job is simply to listen.

What I can promise is that I will never judge. Mine is an open space in which I celebrate diversity and difference. Our relationship will be unique. And you can introduce me to parts of yourself that may be hidden or that you may find embarrassing or unacceptable.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Simon

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in integrative counselling from The Minster Centre, London.

Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

Member organisations

BACP

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.
