If you are a man or boy struggling with despair, anxiety or anger, I can help. Taking that first step can be scary, so if you'd like to see what I'm like here's an introductory video.
Call or email me to set up an initial session. We'll talk about what you want to get out of counselling and if you're happy we'll continue. Sessions are weekly for at least six weeks and can then be fortnightly.
Why boys and men?
Suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 because we don't talk enough. Often men can't articulate their needs and feel they must be tough, provide for their families and yet, increasingly, disown their masculinity. It's a recipe for individual and family breakdown.
I was inspired to train as a psychotherapist after a breakdown in my late 20s, brought on by the pressures of work and estranged fatherhood. Through counselling I learnt about what was driving my unhealthy behaviour, and this route of healing through self-exploration is my guiding principle because I know it works. I've seen inspiring transformations in my clients since I began practising in January 2017.
How it works
Learning to respond to our own needs is an indispensable life skill but one that has yet to be learned by many men and boys. I focus on establishing trust so you can do this important work on your own terms. You won't be judged and it's confidential.
