About me

Hello, thank you for taking the time to visit my page.

There are many reasons that may bring you to therapy, these might be anxiety, depression, feeling sad, panic attacks or relationship problems. Other reasons may be you feel emotional and don't know why, confused or low in mood, perhaps you feel no one listens or understands or you simply feel you have lost your way in life. The way you feel may be from life experiences or could be a result of deeper rooted problems such as issues with sexuality, abandonment, bereavement, relationships or conflict at work to name just a few...

For therapy to be effective it's the quality of the therapeutic relationship we build together that is so important. To encourage this we will focus on what is important for you and work at a comfortable pace led by you. Working together, I will help you  uncover and access your inner strengths and resources to discover answers or a sense of release from the struggles you may be experiencing. Our work will be in a private, confidential, and safe space where you can feel heard, valued, understood and cared for.

If you would like to find out more about counselling and the way I work I offer a free 15 minute call at a convenient time and day for you.  You can contact me by telephone or text on 07827326035 or email me at steven@beunderstood.co.uk to book an appointment.

If I am unable to take your call please leave a clear message with your name and contact telephone number and I will call you back as soon as I am able.

I require a minimum of 24 hours notice to be given for cancellation of appointments as this helps to reduce any unnecessary costs.

Member organisations


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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
