With over 20 years experience working as a therapist and my own life challenges, I am still continually stretching myself and increasing my knowledge and skills, for the benefit of my clients. My passion and purpose in life is to challenge my own mind and passing that knowledge and experience on, helping you to do the same and ultimately feeling able to handle anything that happens in life, even through difficult times. Issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, fears, etc. are quite common in these times and together we may be able to help you with strategies and clear understanding at a deeper level, enabling you to progress.

Life can be extremely challenging, particularly in these current strange times! Anxiety and depression are more prevalent than ever at the moment. As an integrative counsellor, I draw upon a number of theories and styles to support you in therapy enabling me to work in the best possible way to suit your needs. However, despite these different approaches, it is the relationship which has been found to be the most important factor in facilitating change. I provide a warm, non-judgemental and empathic relationship, which is based upon trust and sensitivity, to enable you to explore concerns from the past, present or future.

I am an integrative counsellor as being able to look at a person as a whole is so important, to understand the past, present and future. It is really important for me that you feel safe and non judged so that we can truly explore and work on the problems that you bring. In the understanding we find from what is going on for you we can then look into what strategies and resources we can put in place to help you manage the present and therefore find a more contented present. It isn't about finding perfect as it doesn't exist but getting through life the best we can and counselling can help you do that!

Hello, I'm Jack. Most of us struggle at some points in our lives. Sometimes you might feel stuck and that you are repeating the same patterns making you feel anxious, overwhelmed or losing your spark. This is where expert psychological help might be needed to help you to remove psychological barriers to live a broader and deeper life. I’ve worked in the NHS and other mental health services for over a decade. So I have worked with most psychological problems and a broad range of clients.

Sometimes the world sometimes throws up huge challenges just as we're really struggling inside too, from debilitating conditions such as anxiety or depression. At times like this, our normal coping strategies may fail, dragging in heavy self-criticism and/or destructive behaviours. Some of us find ourselves moving from high anxiety by reaching for something big - food/drink/gambling/shopping//sex/porn/obsessive tidying etc - to get rid of it. The shame of the fix can quickly restart the anxiety and so the cycle starts again. But there is another way.

Sometimes we all need additional support to navigate difficult times and making a decision to seek help for our personal problems can be daunting. I believe in creating a safe space to work together, where you are the expert in your own experiences and I have the experience and expertise in psychological theories and techniques. I believe that by bringing together this expertise we can work together to enable you to achieve your unique personal goals. Some of the relationship problems I work with include communication issues, affairs and betrayals, family issues, parenting issues, separation and divorce.

Have you reached a point where you sense you just can’t carry on feeling this way? Maybe it’s a recent breakup, or a build up of feelings that’s just all become too much to cope with on your own. Perhaps you are carrying a silent pain that you wish the people around you could see. Maybe you are tired of not feeling understood by those closest to you. I wonder if you have lost your trust in others, and reaching out for help often feels impossible. I specialize in working with people to make sense of their past and how it is affecting the present. You are really not alone, and I would like to help, your feelings do matter.

Suffering low self esteem and confidence? You are feeling anxious, depressed, lonely, worried, ruminating, catastrophising, isolating, unable to say no, feeling stuck, hiding their feelings so others won't know. You would like to stop this behaviour, to be able to dream and fulfil those dreams, be able to go out without anxiety as to how it might be and ruminating afterwards and feeling you have said and did the wrong thing. You feel put upon by others as you can't so no for fear of someone disliking them, feeling resentful.

We are all able to agree that our physical health is variable, but it may be much harder to admit that our psychological health is in constant flux. All too often, we find ourselves buying into the idea of the "stiff upper lip": that "mental health issues" affect only other people - and "weak people", at that! It can be very daunting, therefore, to recognise that we need help and then to take steps to find a professional who will help things improve. I understand those concerns, because I've been there: and I also have experience of the positive effects of psychotherapy - from both sides of the consulting-room!

Counselling offers support and help for a variety of issues. There may be events from your past or childhood you would like to understand and discuss with support from a counsellor. Perhaps you are feeling dissatisfied or unhappy in your work life, or family life and could use some guidance and a different perspective to help you find what the root issue may be. You may have experienced a life changing event; such as divorce, child birth, becoming a parent, or losing a loved one. Whatever is making life feel difficult, counselling can offer a space to feel heard, understood and help you find the courage you need to move forward.
