Specialising in Men's mental health. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work with all adults and young people who come to me with a diverse range of presenting issues, with a particular emphasis on addressing issues such as anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. My belief rests on the notion that every person possesses an innate drive to achieve their utmost potential, to grow, and to become the finest version of themselves. This belief serves as a guiding principle as I strive to create a confidential, supportive, empathic, and non-judgemental environment.

Our past need not define our future. If you feel stuck, unhappy and are struggling to change, I can help. When in life we encounter distressing experiences our whole focus may be on surviving them. We can form patterns of thoughts and behaviour which help us cope, but which often continue unnoticed into our later lives. When these patterns of behaviour and relating remain our defaults, they may become obstacles to our future wellbeing. I offer a safe means to explore your thoughts and behaviours, to identify those which are unhelpful and to change, leaving behind obsolete past beliefs and behaviours to live the life you choose.

Hi, my name is Jason. I offer you a supportive and kind space to experience healing, change, and to help you explore whatever it is you are experiencing. I work with all adults (18 & over). I have experience of working with autistic people. I am an LGBTQIA+ ally. Much of my work often involves supporting people with depression, stress, life changes, relationships, self-worth, self-exploration, and identity. My special interests include, but are not limited to, working with loss and grief, and depression. Ultimately, and, I think, most importantly, I am interested in the human experience and being with people.

Life always throws us difficult stuff to deal with; it wouldn’t be life without it. Sometimes we can shrug these things off, yet at other times they can have an extremely debilitating effect upon us. Sometimes things happen and we bury them, they remain hidden but still exert a force upon us and our behaviour. They can influence us in ways that we would rather they didn’t. Sometimes these things come roaring back at us, out of the blue, unbidden and unwelcome. We all pass through stages in our life where we question everything around us, our relationships, our work, our behaviour and ultimately ourselves.

In 2018 I retired from working for 36 years working in the military and the emergency services. During these 36 years I came to realise that people who work in these professions as well as people from all walks of life can find it extremely difficult to talk about some of the experiences they might have had, and how these experiences may have affected them and their families. In many cases the simple fact of being able to talk to someone could do much to make life more comfortable, the ability to talk about issues and concerns can do much to alleviate stress and anxiety. This is what inspired me to become a Gestalt therapist.

Why counselling - There are times where the pressures of life can leave us feeling overwhelmed. For many of us how we feel within ourselves is crucial in day to day life. Wherever we may find ourselves the process of counselling can give us the ability to sculpt and create a vision of belonging that is both true to ourselves and allows us to flourish. What I provide is a non-judgemental, warm and genuine approach focused on person centred therapy. This approach ensures that the client is held throughout the process and feels comfortable exploring experiences both past and present in a safe environment.

At times life can seem tough. Maybe you feel like you’re stuck in a rut or that you’re lacking purpose. Perhaps something has happened, everything has changed but you weren’t quite ready. It feels difficult reaching out to those around you; especially when you’re left feeling frustrated, unheard, and misunderstood. You don’t have to cope all by yourself; it’s normal to feel this way sometimes, and it’s OK to ask for help. Hello and welcome. I’m Ed and I can help you to explore the issues that impact your ability to live and enjoy your life to the fullest, in the hopes that you can begin to have more better days.

Male Counsellors

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
