About me

Hello. There are many reasons that may bring you to therapy, these might be Anxiety, Depression, feeling sad, panic attacks or relationship problems. For therapy to be effective it's the quality of the supportive 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 tap in to 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 confidential, calm and patient space where you can feel heard, valued and understood.

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. Please phone, text or email me to set up your free consultation.

You can contact me by telephone or text on 07827326035 or email me at steven@beunderstood.co.uk to book an appointment.

Why seek Counselling?

The invisible war we are currently fighting with Covid-19 has brought more uncertainty, more fear and more anxiety into our lives than most are used to coping with. As lockdown continues you may be experiencing heightened levels of fear and anxiety or depression. You may have suffered a bereavement or perhaps you have lost your job or business and feel hopeless and without purpose..... these are just a few examples of the negative impact Covid-19 has had on our lives. Reaching out and talking to a counsellor at this most unnerving of times can really help.

There could be many other reasons not connected to Covid-19 why you may be considering counselling... this could come from feeling sad or emotional, 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...

You can phone, text or email me to arrange your free 15 minute consultation.

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.
