As a counselling psychologist I will draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches to assist you in your healing journey. I see every therapeutic encounter as unique which is why I will work with you to tailor therapy to your individual needs and preferences. I approach my work from a trauma informed perspective with a heightened awareness of the specific needs that clients may have as a result of past or ongoing trauma. Due to my clinical and personal experience of trauma, I have first-hand understanding of the complex and pervasive impact that it can have on our sense of self, sense of safety in the world, and our efforts to cope.

I am a psychotherapist and supervisor and hold a master’s degree in Mindfulness Based Core Process Psychotherapy. Currently, I am also in the accreditation process for EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). One focus of my work is exploring the space where mind and body meet. I believe they are not separate. By listening to the body, we create pathways to our current and past experiences. This interest led me to EMDR and the idea that experiences can be ‘locked’ in our bodies. EMDR a method which is effective in treating individuals who have psychological difficulties arising from traumatic experiences.

As a dedicated CBT therapist I work with clients who suffer with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bereavement, emotional eating and more. With a person centered approach I empower individuals through self awareness to better understand their thought process, navigate their emotional landscape and express their behaviours differently. CBT is a talk based therapy that uses techniques to help clients trapped in negative thought patterns, emotions and behaviours move to positive ones to improve the quality of day to day life.

We all encounter difficult times in life. The loss of loved ones, relationship breakdown, difficulties at work, and poor physical health, for example, may have a huge impact on our ability to function. During these times we may find it difficult to cope and struggle to know what to do to feel better.

Sometimes life can feel like a losing battle. If you are looking for help I offer a safe, completely confidential environment, where we can think and talk together. I work psychodynamically, an approach underpinned by the idea that our present day feelings are powerfully influenced by our past experiences. When we remain conflicted in the present about events that happened in the past, we often find ourselves troubled in everyday life. These are the feelings that lead people to look for help to understand and resolve these issues.

My counselling journey started a decade ago, not as a qualified counsellor, but as a client. At the time I had recently come out as gay and was looking for a therapist to support me on my journey of self-acceptance. My therapist’s empathy and non-judgemental approach not only helped me to achieve that but also inspired me to start studying counselling. Now, I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have worked extensively with the LGBTQ+ community both as an activist and as a counsellor.

I was helped tremendously by my own experience of therapy, and have been influenced by a variety of approaches to it. I know a thing or two about depression, not caring much for oneself and struggling to understand one’s feelings; I come at it as one who has seen for himself that a better life and a better relationship with the self is both possible and worthwhile. If you would like to know more about me, how I understand therapy and how I work, you might want to visit my website, where I write about all at some depth. For the purposes of this profile, I will try to be succinct.

I work with clients struggling with anxiety, OCD and repetitive behaviours. Anxiety can often take over our lives and stop us from doing the small things that matter. Before we know it, it can start to take over our lives. Clients often tell me how difficult they find speaking about their thoughts and worries and how relieved they feel speaking to someone who understands these difficulties. I support clients in moving past the shame and guilt linked to anxiety and being able to live their lives, how they want to live them.

I offer a safe, supportive and confidential space to explore any concerns that you wish to bring. As we have all felt lost, alone or unheard at some point in our lives, I think that everyone can benefit from counselling. It is powerful to have a space just for you to talk through the issues that are affecting you and are important to you with someone who is there just for you. Counselling is not always easy and can bring up painful or difficult memories. However, we will go at your own pace and the rewards can be life changing.

Sometimes life gets really hard - complicated, confusing and painful. You're feeling anxious, down or depressed and you can't work out why. Maybe you do know why, but you've never felt able to speak about the reasons with anyone. The pace of modern life or past experiences can often make you feel that you have to try and deal with your difficulties by yourself, by sweeping them under the carpet or putting on a brave face. Perhaps it has seemed that if you just keep going, one day you’d wake up and your problems will have disappeared - but they haven't. So now you've decided to try something new, to seek some help.

Thank you for looking at my profile. I wonder what has brought you here today? Maybe you've thought about counselling for some time but not had the nudge you've needed to take the next step and actually seek out a counsellor. It's quite a big step, choosing to come to therapy, isn't it? So, let me congratulate you on coming this far. In these difficult times, reaching out can be so hard but is now, perhaps, more necessary than ever. If you feel that you are ready to explore your inner world, then you will want a therapeutic partner to journey with you.

I believe therapy can offer a safe space for self-discovery that provides you with an opportunity to creatively discover how you want to live. I am particularly inclined to listen to how an individual describes their world, as I believe each person experiences life in a unique way that can rarely be communicated to someone else. I have worked extensively with individuals facing challenges such as anxiety (towards a specific situation and generalised), depression, breakdown of a relationship, grieving, work issues, infertility and addiction. I also focus on the metaphysical meaning of physical illness to improve wellbeing.

If you are reading this then you probably have a feeling that talking to someone right now is important. Therapy is a way to explore what may seem difficult in your life at this point. You may not even know what it is that feels 'off' and that's ok; therapy can be used to explore that sense of unease, or lack of connection.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or postcode into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
