About me

Hello, my name is Trojan, I am an integrative therapeutic counsellor with over seven years of experience. I can offer affordable short and long term counselling in an environment that is safe, confidential, non-judgemental. A place where you can talk, be heard and to understand your emotions.

The main therapeutic approach I use is Person Centred, which is a humanistic way of working, however I do draw upon other models as and when they feel appropriate. The models that I use are Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic and Solution Focused.

Whatever your reasons for seeking help, therapy can help;

  • to reduce anxiety
  • to reduce depression
  • to address difficult family issues
  • to cultivate better personal relationships
  • to reduce low self-esteem
  • to improve your confidence and assertiveness

I work with children, young people and adults on a range of issues.

I am a keen advocate for the men accessing counselling and having safe spaces to talk.

I also have experience working with people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities.

I have experience working with and supporting the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer community.

I specialise in anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, anger management, issues of loneliness, identity, family and personal relationships. I am currently supporting clients via zoom and telephone but usually, work as a face to face counsellor.

If you would like to have an informal chat with me about your concerns and how we might work together or to arrange an initial session, please feel free to contact me either by telephone or email and I will respond to you within 24 hours. I look forward to speaking with you.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications is CPCAB Level 2,3 Certificate in therapeutic counselling and Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

Plus I have an enhanced DBS clearance.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
