About me

Safe, Confidential and Private space for you to talk, be listened to, to be heard, take time out. All about meeting your needs, working with you, at your pace. This time is for you, it is yours.

Many reasons to come to see me including depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, feeling sad, not sure what to do, etc. As an adult there are many things we have to manage that no-one ever said would cause me a difficulty. One that I would like to chew over. As a child, no-one ever gave me a manual to understand how to be a parent. There can be really difficult times; with no helpful answers. I would just like to take time out and think out this.

It is normal to need time to think, to talk with someone in ways you cannot talk to friends and family. You may be a man, NHS or forces, having time to think and talk could be useful to you.

My practice is based on a range of approaches that are person-centred, relational, systemic and focus on you. They include Transactional Analysis, Motivational Interviewing, coaching, cognitive, behavioural and Psychology. Our space is within my Therapeutic Garden, in a private room alongside puppets, toys, group campfire and others.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a psychotherapist in transactional analysis which for me is a way of understanding how we as people relate to other people and understand the world in which we live.

I have a degree in psychology which allows me to understand more of how and why we think, feel and behave in the way we do.

Also I have trained in a number of areas that help me work better and include approaches that support people to make decisions, understand themselves and others and make changes.

Further I have worked and continue to work with children and young people, families, couples, adults and groups in areas including addictive behaviours, being bullied and tantrums, etc.

Accessibility

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.
