The aim of sessions is to work towards an understanding of the challenges you face and the changes you wish to make. During sessions, you will be the focus of our attentions and I will value you without judgement, as a unique person, an equal. Having been in counselling myself, I have an understanding of the process. It can be a daunting prospect, and I will support you in that journey. I have listed many specialities and whilst I do have experience of working with them, I believe there is more to you than a "diagnosis" or an "issue" so the focus is on you the whole person, and whatever you choose to bring. NOTE - OVER 18'S ONLY

Counselling is about relationships with family, friends, colleagues and yourself. I create an environment where you are able to access and harness your own resources/strengths in a non-judgemental space to work towards your individual therapeutic goals. I will work alongside you and am keen to understand your personal values whilst working with difficulties such as stuck patterns and developing an understanding of what is maintaining them. I aim is to get to know you and your personal values so we can understand any issues and make sense of what is maintaining them.

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I'm an Integrative Relational psychotherapist and a supervisor in training. As a psychotherapist I use my experience of talking and relating to you in sessions to understand your way of being in the world, how you make sense of it and how you relate to others. Your journey is unique. Every time I've been listened to and understood I've come away feeling cared for and valued with a new sense of worth. I've learned that change is inevitable and that how I care for myself in the present affects my future.

We are told how important exercise is for our physical wellbeing, our mental health is no different. Therapy does change lives and for that reason, if you are unhappy, stressed and not sure what to do, you need to remember that life is short and you deserve to live the life you want. Put yourself first, and do what makes you happy! My approach is integrative, which means that I am trained in several different modalities, allowing me to work in a way that suits each unique client.

I especially encourage transgender , non-binary, and gender-questioning individuals to get in touch with me - as a queer non-binary therapist, LGBTQ+ experiences are central to my practice.
It can be exceptionally tough to start looking for therapy, and I'm proud of you for doing so today. As both a practicing therapist and as someone who has healed and grown in therapy myself, I know how it feels to be in both chairs in the therapy office. If you are looking for somewhere to create meaning in your life, you are feeling lost or hopeless, or you are seeking emotional support, please get in touch. I’m offering therapy exclusively through Skype, Zoom, and by phone, depending on your preference. While I plan to be back in the office to see people face-to-face when it is safe to do so, I am also excited to see you online!

Hello, I am Philip! I am a trauma and gender identity Therapist, working affirmatively with clients from varied life paths for the past two years. Surviving life adversities, often for many years, can leave us feeling confused, afraid, misunderstood and hurt. At times, we may resort in hiding aspects of ourselves we deem shameful, engage in critical self talk and disconnect from parts of life that get too much. We may feel stuck and unfulfilled. Finding the space we need to feel seen, safe and empowered may be hard, yet it is something part of us knows we deserve.

Do you feel ripped apart and shaken to your core? You don't want to be a burden to friends and can't talk to family, it is all so overwhelming. The deepest pit of despair and hurt, mixed emotions, anguish, anger, confusion, barely coping with intense non-stop life changes. Loss of family, partner or treasured friends, sudden or chronic terminal illness, loss of the person you used to be, ageing, guilty lifestyle, fear of a new job and moving, or the prickling heartache from loss of your pet. You don’t even have the strength to take the next step, to pull yourself through while trying to reach your old self. You need a safe space.

Have you ever been judged by just being who and what you are? Have you been disapproved of your sexuality, identity, gender identity, your life choices, and what and who you want to be? It is difficult to live our lives every day being questioned by our families, friends, or others. Maybe at times, even we started to ask ourselves, Am I “normal”? Am I doing the wrong thing? Should I just try to do what they want me to do, but can I? Am I passable enough or will I ever be? It feels natural to me, but why are they judging me for it? Most important of all, do I deserve to be happy by being myself and how could I ever achieve that?

Sometimes, life hands you a tornado that brings turbulence and instability and sometimes you are faced with issues which are difficult to handle alone and as a result, you need a little help navigating through life trials. When we are faced with tough times, it can be difficult to handle our feelings or locate what we are feeling and why.

Hi there :) Are you looking for support around coming out? Transitioning? Questioning your gender, sexuality or another aspect of your identity? Recovering from experiences of harm? Or perhaps need a safe space where you can feel understood and respected so you can get on with talking about what's going on for you? When we are unable to (safely) be our authentic selves we can experience great stress, anxiety, low mood as well as other challenges. Counselling and an exploratory listening approach such as the one I practice can really help to improve self relationship, reduce distress and isolation & increase well being.
