From childhood we are given messages about the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ ways to feel, think and behave – messages that can teach us that we must hide or supress aspects of our authentic selves in order to be acceptable to others. If you’re an LGBTQ + person, your sexuality and gender might completely unrelated to what has brought you to counselling, but you still want to know that your therapist will affirm these parts of you. In my online therapy room, you are invited to be your whole uncensored self in the company of somebody who values you unconditionally and really listens. I am a queer therapist with trauma informed training.

My scope includes training around LGBTQ + community and their families.
You may be finding life tough, finding it hard to put your finger on what’s causing distress. General feelings of sadness and low self-esteem may be making it difficult to see who you truly are. Your sense of purpose may be ebbing, or indeed gone altogether. Instead, there may be a constant, nagging feeling of wishing things were different. But not knowing what that different looks or feels like. Whether or not it even exists. Do you feel your voice is being smothered by work pressures, or your personal aims are being crushed? The overwhelming anxiety that seems to dictate your every thought and move...

My counselling service is for both men and women, with a conscious focus toward men offering a space to feel safe and supported to work through their issues. It's often a misconception that 'men don't talk about feelings', rather that men don't know that counselling can be for them too. Some of the reasons to come to counselling include; Sex or Relationship Issues, Gay and Bisexual issues or struggling to come out, Work Issues, Bullying, verbal, emotional or physical, Anxiety, Depression, Coming to terms with loss and bereavement. I am a fully qualified Person Centred Therapist and registered member of the BACP.

Need a breath of fresh air? Change of scenery? Anxieties and problems have weighed heavy recently and it's been very easy for things to feel like they are getting on top of us, or maybe you've been meaning to get some support for a while and now is the time to move forward and feel better. Over the years I have supported all kinds of people with a wide variety of things they find difficult and we can decide together if I am the right person and this is the right thing for you. I offer a flexible approach to counselling and counselling supervision working outdoors, walking, sitting, with my dog or yours, or both, and online.

Counselling and self-reflection is the opposite of selfishness. It is a tool that helps us to be able to take responsibility for our own feelings and allow us to have better control over the direction of our lives. So that we can be better functioning and content for ourselves and those around us.

Psychoanalytical Psychoanalysis and Integrative Counselling: "The speed and accuracy by which Chris was able to work out our personalities and provide genuinely useful insight was, quite frankly, incredible.  This insight, hard as it was to digest, proved to be so profound to me that I was finally able to unpick what had being going on in my relationship.  His ability to sum up the relationship in one stark metaphor was a watershed moment for me.  Through his insight and continued support I have managed to start to discover myself again and to regain my confidence which had been systematically dismantled."  Mr. M, 2019, Canterbury.

Given the latest government advice all sessions will be offered online. I have ten years of experience of working in this way and I am happy to give you guidance to set this up. You will need an internet connection (preferably high speed), a headset and microphone. I can also offer telephone sessions but face to face via an online platform is preferable. Psychotherapy is about being listened to and seen in a particular way. There is nowhere else in life that offers a time and space to focus on your 'self' - your body and your mind. My Kent practice is in the village of Bridge near Canterbury and is easy to reach.

I don't have a typical client. Everyone is unique and complex and if you have found yourself drawn to the idea of counselling I will do my best to build a trusting relationship, offering a safe, non judgemental space and ring-fenced time just for you to talk about the issues you want to bring. I work with adults both short and long term to strive to help you reach the goal you had in mind from it. I have found these reasons can be very diverse, from dealing with past or present events, fears, traumas, anxieties, grief. My aim is to help you get a deeper understanding of yourself and help you bring about the changes you want to see.

Most of us will experience sexual and relationship difficulties at some point in our lives and yet it can still be very challenging and embarrassing discussing them. Talking to an experienced and qualified psychosexual and relationship therapist can help you identify the difficulties you are experiencing, understand and explore different ways you can overcome these challenges and move forward. I aim to create a confidential and safe place where you feel able to talk about these issues in a non-shaming way. I am a sex positive therapist and I am comfortable exploring alternative sexual interests.

Coming to counselling is an adventure! It can be immense fun and incredibly inspirational. It can also be hard and will certainly make you take a good look at yourself! If you want to make changes in your life then counselling is one of the most effective ways to do it... and I will help you along the way, walking alongside you, giving you support. It is a great privilege for me - and I deeply value the vulnerable person (within all of us) that counselling helps to find the courage to reveal. I work with kindness, warmth and respect, and our relationship will become strong - yet I will challenge you - but in a caring and gentle way.

Being a young adult in 2022 is not easy. From panic attacks, to a bad habit of browsing Instagram and Tinder at 4am - I specialise in helping young adults (age 18 to 30) build a healthier day-to-day life by talking about their lives, problems and thoughts. Do any of these statements describe you: "My coursework is just too much, I feel miserable, money problems, I lost someone I loved, I worry my girlfriend is cheating, I'm putting on weight, I suffer bad anxiety in normal situations, I'm having panic attacks, I need to understand myself right and get better now."

Our mind can be tricky and understand how it functions is not a simple thing. We can easily feel overwhelmed or drowning under negative thoughts, feeling stuck in this vicious circle. The core of my work is to do a person-focus therapy, adapting each of them to the needs of my clients, it is called "integrative therapy". Being trained in several types of approaches, I can jungle easily with the tools, to be able to create a tailored therapy : talking therapy, psychoanalysis, CBT, ACT, hypnosis, NLP coaching. My work is based on empathy, compassion and support. We talk openly and safely together about what is the best for your needs

Relationships can at times be a great source of distress and anxiety; sometimes it’s easy to feel stuck and unable to move forwards. You may be having difficulties with communication, infidelity, intimacy, sexual difficulties, or perhaps you just can’t seem to get along anymore and you’re not sure why. Whether you are experiencing difficulties within your relationship, or find it difficult to form lasting relationships, counselling can give you the space you need to explore and understand these issues. I offer sex therapy and relationship/couple counselling from my base in Canterbury (Kent) and online.
