About

Counselling for men who don't want counselling ... Many men see therapy as a waste of time and money, a one-sided converastion, solely focused on feelings, with little opportunity for you to fix things yourself. You want to go it alone.The very notion of discussing your private life with a stranger makes you recoil. You really want to be okay. You really want to just have your life together. But you cant' seem to stop being moody, angry, agressive, jealous and, sometimes even, suicidal. You may be drinking too much, using drugs or gambling too much. Deep down, you're suffering and so are the people around you.
I help men engage in therapy. Life's too short to be about rocky relationships, substance over sue, being controlled by trauma and feeling angry all the time.Research shows that men are more likely to drop out of therapy or feel suicidal. I work with you to build on the strengths you already have & identify obstacles & patterns that may be holding you back
For 6+ years I've helped people gain a greater understanding of themselves & build change into their lives.My approach combines Addiction Psychology & Counselling, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, Harm Reduction Therapy, CBT and Brainspotting. I offer 15 min free consultation, please click the link provided to see how I can help.
