Perhaps a specific issue has led you here today. Perhaps you would like to explore difficulties in your early life and how those are impacting on you today. We all go through times when some additional support could be useful. Perhaps I'm the right person to help. I have extensive experience of working in NHS and charity settings as well as abroad. Aside from my private practice I currently work as Senior Clinical Psychologist in an NHS service. I have worked with a wide range of difficulties and have most experience in working with complex trauma, interpersonal difficulties, mood management, and autism spectrum conditions.

If you've arrived here, you are already thinking about counselling. You might feel depressed, anxious or overwhelmed and finding it difficult to cope with the challenges of life. Perhaps you have experienced a recent loss, had a sudden change of circumstances or are struggling with relationships. Maybe you don't even know what's troubling you. Research shows positive change happens when there is a good match between client and counsellor. It’s difficult to choose a counsellor or know what to expect from counselling without having a face-to-face meeting. This is why I offer a free 30-min intro session where we can meet

Hi, I am Tom. As you are here I presume there things in your life that you feel the need explore. You may be trying to make sense of these thoughts and maybe together we can help you see things more clearly. I believe in working together in a non-judgemental way where I listen to develop an understanding your world from your perspective. In doing so, I hope it creates a safe space where you can talk about your thoughts and feelings. Hopefully, this will allow you to gain a clearer understanding of the situation you are currently experiencing and perhaps identify strengths and resources to help you cope in a better way than now.

I am an experienced BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, currently based in Phoenix Therapy Practice. I believe that no issue is too small nor too great to bring to therapy – if it causes you pain, you will benefit from opening up about it in the long run. I believe everyone’s internal world needs to be approached with curiosity and openness. My approach is rooted in traditional psychoanalysis but progressive in the way I practice it. It is suitable for adults of all ages and backgrounds and also LGBTQ/kink and poly-friendly.

Sometimes life is tough, and seeking help may feel unfamiliar and daunting. You may be struggling to cope with a variety of issues such as bereavement, loss, change (redundancies, separation, divorce), relationship issues (family, partners, colleagues, friends), childhood related issues, sense of identity or trauma, to name a few. Perhaps you don’t feel yourself and don’t know why. As a result you may feel dissatisfied, anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, stressed, angry, underconfident or lacking in self-esteem.

I can help people who don’t feel they are living their best lives due to anxiety, low mood, poor self-esteem and negative self-talk overcome these problems and manifest a life that is driven by values, aspirations and contentment. As humans, we all have a need to find a purpose and meaning, and this can be difficult if we allow our worries, fears, doubts and unhelpful emotions to take control of the drivers seat. Whilst we can never eliminate negative feelings, I can help you develop an accepting relationship with them so you take re-take control of the drivers seat and move forward in the direction you want with purpose.

Hello, I am a queer-identified therapist and I have been working with the LGBTQ+ community for a number of years. I can offer a safe and non-judgemental space for us to explore what is troubling you. Most of us experience mental health challenges at some point in our lives, and there is still so much pressure to appear like we have it all together. Often just feeling heard is the first step towards healing. There is strength in admitting that we can’t do it all on our own and that we need a bit of help to get through life’s difficulties.

There are different times in our lives when we may encounter challenges in our emotional world. Transition and change can sometimes trigger these challenging feelings. For example, moving home or employment, changing relationships or friendships; life changes such as going to university or reaching age milestones. Any of these can significantly affect the way we feel about ourselves. We react in different ways to what we encounter in our environment. We might become depressed or overwhelmed by intense emotions or we might feel anxious and unable to engage in social activities. It can all become too much to manage alone.
