I offer a safe and non-judgemental enviroment where I help people solve the problems that they are dealing with. I want my clients to walk away from our time together with the tools to maintain the changes they have worked for and a new found or rediscovered confidence in themselves and life. My therapy is practical, straight forward and it works. Cognitive behaviour therapy was designed for anxiety related issues from panic to OCD. It is perfect for depression or anger issues. As a qualified hypnotherapist I also teach relaxation and mindfillness meditation to those who want that extra dimension to their therapy.

Whatever you're going through, don't go through it alone. People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons: you may want support with a life event or transition, be experiencing anxiety or depression , be feeling dissatisfied in your relationships, or want to better understand yourself and what you want from life. I'm fascinated by the ways we search for meaning in our lives, and I know how amazing and transformative good relationships of all kinds can be, and how painful it can be when we struggle to find or keep them. I'm passionate about helping people learn to relate to themselves, others and the world in the fullest possible way.

How does behaviour affect yourself and others and potentially impact on your relationships? Are you carrying an issue, worry or fear which is now influencing yourself and/or others in an unhelpful way which you would like to change or improve? Are things currently ok but could be better, or are you fearful of a situation reaching crisis point if it is not addressed soon? If you can relate to questions like these then perhaps therapeutic intervention is the next step for you to consider.

Scrolling here - you are not sure where to turn and I imagine you need a safe space to speak freely and to be understood. I am here to listen. Finding a safe, none judgemental space to explore life events, thoughts or relationships can help to 'release the valve' and give some relief to the anxiety, low mood or depressive symptoms that can build up when you hold everything in. I offer a place of equality and acceptance. Without judgement I will listen carefully to you and look at life from your perspective, then together we can explore a route forward.

it's fair to say that I have had my own personal challenges in life, grew up the youngest of 4, dragged up on a council estate, joined the Army as a means to escape, during my ten years in a front line infantry battalion I served in Bosnia, Northern Ireland and was one of the Desert Rats that liberated Iraq in 2003. Upon leaving the forces I struggled with the transition back to civilian life, lost all my friends and family (due to my behavior), became isolated, alone, suicidal, unemployed, divorced, street homeless, bankrupt and more. It's going through all these challenges that has made me into the person I am today.

We all exist in relationship with others, at home and at work, and the health of these relationships affects our wellbeing. When we're going through a challenging time it can feel really difficult, and working with someone who has supported many others in similar situations is an important part of finding our own way to move forward. I can support you to take some time out of the same old experiences, to invest in yourself so you can be happier and enjoy what life has to offer. It's possible to work with me one to one, as a couple or in a family group.

I’ve been described as a kind, gentle and highly empathic man with a very calm and soothing energy. I imagine that you may think that what you or your family member might be bringing into sessions with me may feel overwhelming, intolerable or even embarrassing but I can assure you that I'll remain alongside with no judgement. I have wide, strong arms which can hold even the biggest trouble. Whatever the issues, I can work with you to develop a course of action in either short-term focussed or open-ended longer work, whichever suits you best.

I am committed to working alongside you and through mutual discussions providing you with the strategies and tools that are the best fit for you.

Struggling to cope with negative emotions can feel very isolating and, by the nature of some problems, guilt and shame can make us feel stigmatised and prevent us reaching out for support even when its not our fault. People come to counselling for all kinds of reasons from childhood trauma to life events as adults such as divorce, bereavement and stress and what they all have in common is a desire to feel better and begin to enjoy life. Some people find they use alcohol or drugs in an attempt to cope with their feelings but inventively this creates more problems.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
