My therapeutic approach integrates elements of contemporary psychoanalytic psychotherapy with a Humanistic emphasis on a direct and real relationship.
Psychotherapy can help you with such difficulties as: relationship problems, life transitions, depression, anxiety, identity confusion, and anger. People who engage in individual therapy often speak of improvements in the quality of their relationships, increased confidence and a growing ability to take risks and make changes in their lives. Problems in partner relationships can be complex and sometimes destructive and limiting, with roots in childhood difficulties. Couples therapy seeks to understand the underlying issues and conflicts, resolve difficulties and find an agreed way forward.

I offer a safe & confidential place for you to come and talk about anything in your life that may be causing you distress or confusion. I believe that counselling can benefit anyone; it can really help to talk to someone who is objective & professional. Often people come to counselling with no clear idea of what they want or how they feel. There is no expectation from me with regards to the issues you bring; counselling is your space & it is common for people to feel confused or unsure. My aim is to support you through the process & help you to better understand yourself & your struggles, so that you can move forward with your life.

Welcome to my profile. There are various circumstances which might bring an individual to counselling. Some people may be aware of the cause of their distress e.g. bereavement or difficulties such as addiction that they would like to address. However others may have a feeling of unease but can't seem to put a finger on what might be wrong in their life. Whatever the reason you have chosen to seek help, I will provide you with a safe and confidential space where you will have the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings and we will work together to make sense of your experiences.

I offer a confidential space to help you to resolve psychological pain; to identify and initiate significant changes; acknowledge trauma and loss; negotiate life's transitions and to manage uncertainty. Therapy is a shared exploration of your deepest concerns: we work to discern possible meanings behind suffering and to fulfill cherished aims. By having individual sessions with an experienced clinician, or, sharing honest communication in a supportive, facilitated group, you can develop increased agency, greater self-worth and resilience, courage to discern a new life-direction, and, the confidence to explore relationships.

There are many reasons why people seek time and space to talk and reflect. You might want to talk about thoughts and feelings that are difficult to discuss with others, or consider what has happened to bring you to this point in your life. This can be a space for exploration and discovery, a protected hour in which you will be listened to. My focus is on listening openly, without judgment, to whatever you bring. I will listen to your experiences and your point of view and together we can look at different perspectives which can help you to live more freely.

Perhaps you're feeling trapped or blocked by the past, confused knowing there must be more to life but feeling stuck in survival. Maybe you feel in the depths of despair with feelings of stress, depression and anxiety or recently grieving from a bereavement, a loss of some kind or simply can’t make sense of a general flatness and loss of meaning. You know changes need to be made and seeking a safe supportive space to work through your process to find greater balance and meaning to life, allowing you to really live your life fully.

I believe in the power of opening up, and while I will draw on theory and knowledge to support each individual client, I am led by the client and their individual needs. An ideal client is someone who wishes to build a therapeutic space alongside me, allowing me to facilitate safety and build trust. I am experienced at working with complex mental health needs, therefore I begin by creating a formulation of the problem with the client, and collaboratively establish their needs and personal goals. i am interested in helping others to learn about themselves through relational dynamics they experience.

You might seek help for a specific problem such as obsessional behaviour, social anxiety or psycho-somatic symptoms. Or you may have more general feelings of anxiety or depression associated with dissatisfaction in work, the challenge of forming satisfying relationships or issues with money, food or sex. You may feel unfulfilled, bored or creatively inhibited. All of these difficulties affect the quality of your life. Psychotherapy and counselling provide an effective treatment for just such disorders and concerns and can contribute significantly to your mental health, sense of well-being and to managing your life more effectively.

I am a BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor and mainly practice Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). ISTDP is an emotion-focused, trauma-informed and attachment-based approach with very positive research outcomes. Some people begin therapy clear about what they want help with, others need some assistance in understanding their difficulty. I provide a safe space for clients to better understand their behaviour and experiences by making links between the present difficulty and the past. We also work together in the session to help you explore new ways of relating to yourself and your problem.

I am part of the LGBT+ community and identify as a cis gay man. As a consequence I have seen how life can throw many diverse LGBTQ-related challenges at us: loss, crisis, change - that cause us to question our sense of self. Yet I believe within these challenging times we have the ability to grow and develop - even flourish - through the untangling of our internal and external worlds: who we are, our authentic selves, others’ around us as well as the world in which we live.

Psychoanalytic Counsellors
Psychoanalysis is an in-depth form of therapy. The client learns what conscious and unconscious wishes drive their patterns of thinking and behavior on the theory that, by making the unconscious conscious, they will make more educated choices over how they think and act.
