It may be that you are impacted by some past or current difficulties, are feeling stuck, unable to move forward, a lack of control over your life, or repeating old patterns. We all can form ways of coping throughout our lives that may have been necessary at the time, but are no longer helpful to us. I believe all people have the capacity to grow and flourish, given the right environment. I offer a confidential and compassionate space for you to talk about things that you are finding difficult, confusing, overwhelming, or simply want to explore further. As a therapist in late stages of training, I offer sessions at a reduced rate.

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.

My aim is to enable clients to find ways to feel peaceful, find courage and to overcome fears and challenges. Clients may wish to move on from unhelpful thinking or patterns of living , overcome anxiety and live a more enjoyable life . Some clients may not yet know what they want but accept that a change is needed . Starting counselling can be a big step and the decision can come from necessity , pain or simply a desire to see how things could be different. I understand that it can feel like a big step into unknown territory and I will do everything possible to help you feel comfortable with the process.

For the past nine years I have been helping individuals, couples and families with mental health difficulties across a range of settings. Typical problems that I have experience treating include depression, anxiety, OCD, adjustment difficulties, trauma/PTSD, stress and relationship difficulties. I see psychotherapy as a personal journey, a chance to get to know yourself better, a safe space to explore and to grow. My interests lie in a human, in embodied experience and in the process.

I have a proven track record with adults and young people who suffer with historical trauma and negative childhood experiences. I provide that safe space you need.

I am a very experienced and professional therapist with over twelve thousand client contact hours behind me in individual, couples and group work. I feel my experience coupled with my life experiences makes me the person and the therapist I am today. My training in the person-centred approach (three years) and in Transactional Analysis (seven years) together with continuing professional and personal development and supervision give me a strong theoretical and experiential focus to bring to my client work. I work very much in a relational way (research indicates that the therapeutic relationship is key to positive therapy outcomes)

Do you need support with what’s on your mind? Maybe you feel depressed, anxious or unfulfilled in your relationships. Or perhaps you can’t stop thinking about the past, or worrying about the future. Your feelings might feel overwhelming, or you might feel shut down.

I am a qualified integrative therapist who has worked for Mind for the last 3 years. The base of my sessions is always Person-Centred; to listen, offering compassion and warmth. I also offer stress and anxiety techniques, CBT, transactional analysis and mindfulness.

We all have times when we find it hard to cope. Counselling can help you understand why you think, feel and act like you do. It can help you develop positive strategies to get what you want out of life. How we think, feel and behave is part of being human. Problems can arise when we get 'stuck' in negative thought patterns; when our feelings are persistently overwhelming; when our behaviour is self-destructive and doesn't result in us getting what we need; when we worry about the future, dwell on the past and find it hard to live in the present. I believe the most important relationship we have is the relationship with ourself.

Do you feel frustrated, guilty, angry, fearful, anxious, discontent or depressed with where you are currently in your life, or are you struggling to identify where your life is going or who you are and what you want to do? Are you feeling a loss of self-confidence, confusion, worthlessness or helplessness? Do you feel like you are separated from the world and often feel lonely even though there are lots of people around you? Are you struggling with your personal or professional relationships? Would you like to achieve peace of mind, and the space to revitalise your life and to identify what stops you from achieving what you want?

Do you feel alone or unheard? Have you tried to speak to someone, but they don't understand? I can offer you a safe space to explore confusing or difficult feelings without judgement and with empathy. Working through your life experiences can help you to move forward positively and with a greater understanding of yourself. I know that no matter what you have been through, no one has experienced it in the way that you have or feels the way you feel. I understand that we are all individual and I want to help you in this process, to understand your feelings and to remember who you are and want to be.

I worked for many years, with complex trauma & PTSD at one of the UK's largest NHS Foundation Trusts. For the last 5 years I have been in private practice, mostly with diverse women who prefer not to keep explain issues around race or culture. However, my trauma informed approach is suitable for all groups.

My education and experience help me use various processes and collaborate with each person or couple to create their own unique treatment plan with the aim to cover, as much as possible, their own unique needs. Through these processes (e.g. through Socratic dialogue/questioning, Empathic Responses, and other Systemic and Cognitive-Behavioral techniques), I invite people to develop more self-awareness, to renegotiate key issues of their existence and to approach past traumatic experiences in a more constructive manner.

I think sometimes we just reach that place in life when we say 'enough is enough'. For some it can mean it is time to stop and face something, and to someone else it can mean it is maybe time to 'let it go'. There's no end to the potential meanings for reaching 'that point'. i think we've all been there at some stage or another. Does this sound familiar ? That's okay, i totally understand where you're coming from. What is important is acknowledging that you have had the energy and motivation to seek someone to support you through this - it takes courage and strength to take this step. Well done!
