About me

Hi there, I'm Will, and whatever brings you here today – welcome, maybe I can help. 

I'm a BACP registered counsellor offering short and long-term therapy to adults. I work in a way that is kind, thoughtful and imaginative. First and foremost, I listen deeply – to the content and the process. Over time, I seek to make connections between patterns in your day-to-day life, to patterns from your past, to patterns in the dynamic between us. The result is a growing space of awareness around these that, grounded in a supportive relationship, fosters clarity, meaning and positive change.

This involves a skilful blend of compassion and challenge, rooted in my integrative training and personal journey. For this, we may use parts, images, journalling, attention to the body, as well as explorations of your unique history. And we will always go at your pace.


I have quiet and comfortable rooms in Crystal Palace and London Bridge, and I also offer walking therapy in nearby parks if space and nature feel important. I sometimes work online, although strongly believe that working in-person yields better results.

Initial consultation

After contact through email, a short phone or video call, a session is arranged to help us confirm if working together feels right. During these, I will enquire about your situation – what brings you to therapy, why now, and what your aims might be – as well as to answer any questions.

Working together

To proceed, we create an agreement for our work. This could be open-ended or with a limited timeframe of 6-12 sessions, and will include my T&Cs around confidentiality, data protection, attendance and payment, as well as an understanding of your objectives. Periodically this will be reviewed, e.g. if moving from time-limited to open-ended work. We then meet once per week at a set time and place for 50 minutes.


You are under no obligation to continue, and can leave at any time. Endings are important though, and at least 1-4 sessions are recommended to integrate what has come up.


I practice under the BACP's Code of Ethics. I hold professional indemnity insurance, and also engage in regular supervision and CPD. Our work is confidential, and I manage your data in line with GDPR regulations. I stand for inclusivity across race, gender, sexuality and all forms of diversity.


Please contact me for a short phone or video chat where we can discuss working together. I'm very happy to talk through your circumstances without obligation and in total confidence – as well as to offer recommendations or referrals if I can.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP 404008). I trained at Re-Vision in Queens Park. Outside of private practice, I have worked for several years as a volunteer counsellor at the Psychosynthesis Trust in London Bridge.

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.

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.

Additional information

Therapy is an incredible investment in a happy future – that everyone deserves access to. This means acknowledging financial diversity, which is why I use a sliding scale of fees based on each individual’s situation. I ask clients to make an honest self-assessment from the following rough guidelines:

  • £80 – standard
  • £70 – supported
  • £50 – low-cost
