Counsellor & Hypnotherapist, MPNLP GQHP GHSC/GHR CNHC MBACP

About me

I specialise in treating stress, anxiety and depression, including trauma, grief, bereavement and loss, providing individually tailored therapy for help and support with a wide range of personal issues.

People consider me compassionate, and sensitive to the needs of others, with a highly developed intuitive sense, and accompanying insight into presenting problems. I work patiently from your perspective, respect your confidentiality, and your right to be self governing, working collaboratively with you to achieve your desired goals.

How do I work?

As an MBACP registered Integrative Counsellor, Anxiety UK Approved Therapist, and GHSC accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist, I work utilising highly effective, brief strategic, evidence-based, and solution orientated interventions, that help with a broad spectrum of problems.

Moreover, the main idea behind integrative counselling is that you are unique, and what would work perfectly for you is not necessarily what would work for another person. As an integrative counsellor, I therefore work to make a program of therapy that suits your specific individual needs.

What is Integrative Counselling?

Integrative counselling looks at the whole person, taking into account your mental, physical and emotional needs. Your therapist will use techniques and tools from different modalities to tailor an individual approach for you.

An integrative counsellor aims to build a trusting and non-judgmental relationship that helps you develop self-awareness. When you understand the causes of your concerns or triggers for your behaviour, you can confidently set goals and develop new behaviours to improve your satisfaction with life (BACP, 2021).

What are the benefits?

Counselling can help you move forward in your life, by providing the time and a confidential space to work through any problems. It also helps you gain a different perspective on problems and issues by providing a safe, non-judgemental and respectful environment to talk openly in private.  It can help you to regain your well-being and a stronger sense of balance in your life. Counselling frequently helps people to think more clearly and make better decisions for themselves. Through counselling, people report feeling more motivated, confident and assertive, with improvements in their personal and professional relationships. Counselling can also help you realise your true potential, help you identify ambitions and goals, in a way that’s right for you.

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.

Generally I feel like a ten ton weight has been lifted off my shoulders, I am no longer claustrophobic and feel very relaxed and know that even if I didn’t, I now have the tools to implement and cope with it.

I feel as though a whole new world has opened up for me, whereas before my therapy I had to plan every single day and always be conscious and aware of anything that could spark a panic attack: trains, planes, buses and lifts were out of the question, even queues in shops could sometimes see me flee, leaving my shopping where it was, once again embarrassing myself and leaving me feeling very low for the rest of the day.

However, since my therapy, that is all in the past, I can’t believe I have suffered so much over the last twenty years and it is now over, thanks to you. I must admit that I was a little sceptical at first but my goodness was I proved wrong. The day I decided to book an appointment to see you was the single best decision I have made in my life so far. I will always be indebted to you and would not hesitate to recommend you to someone else or see you again myself should the need arise.

Thank you so much Tony

  • Liz, East London

I’ve had the good fortune of knowing Tony through my Yoga sessions. He is really passionate about assisting people to find their own solutions and empowers them. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking healing for past experiences, or freeing themselves from fears, and building courage to live life fully. Whatever your reasons, you will have an experience of total serenity during each one of Tony’s sessions.

  • Ramila Patel, Advanced Yoga Teacher and Well-being Mentor

Tony has been instrumental in helping me overcome procrastination with essay submissions. Without his support, I would have been unable to continue my University studies. Having lived the experience of learning disabilities which has inhibited progress in all aspects of my life, I now have a sense of renewed vigour and gratitude for life and learning.

  • University Student, East London

I've found Tony to be compassionate with excellent interpersonal and communication skills. He is empathic, diligent and sensitive to individual need. I also found him conscientious, truthful and highly principled. He demonstrates integrity, and is committed to alleviating suffering, empowers people, promotes personal growth, self-awareness, and independence. He has been instrumental in turning my life around, particularly in dealing with long standing issues around Generalised Anxiety, Social Anxiety and Panic Attacks.
