About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor, a sex and porn addiction therapist (completing my training) and an accredited 5Rhythms movement meditation teacher. 

I work with clients of all ages who are tired of thinking and feeling that they are somehow not enough and with clients who are stuck in patterns of compulsive sexual behaviour. 

I support my clients to grow in self-acceptance, self-compassion, sobriety, authenticity and vitality.

The feeling of somehow not being enough lurks in the background of a whole range of presenting issues: low self-esteem, low mood, depression, relationship problems, lack of confidence, lack of certainty, lack direction in life, lack of purpose, anxiety, career problems, body image problems, addictions and obsessions, feeling lost etc.

Might you be harbouring beliefs of not being enough?

There are many versions of not enough:

  • not good enough
  • not smart enough
  • not clever enough
  • not attractive enough
  • not tough enough
  • not man enough
  • not big enough
  • not small enough
  • not pretty enough
  • not straight enough
  • not fit enough
  • not likeable enough
  • not successful enough
  • not rich enough
  • not important enough
  • not spiritual enough... [feel free to insert your own word here].

If you are ready to say goodbye to feeling flawed, inadequate and not enough and /or to stop reliance on compulsive sex or porn use as a way of managing your feelings, then don't go on struggling on your own, reach out and get the support that you need. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Practice description

My practice, The Counselling Shed, is positioned in a discrete location between Faversham and Canterbury in Kent. 

Counselling sessions are either face to face, online, or a mixture of the two: please call or email and we can work out a best way forward for you.

Appointments are offered daytime or evening subject to availability and sessions are 50 minutes long.

I am LGBTQ+ inclusive. 

Here's what my clients say about my counselling practice:

I was initially a bit sceptical about counselling and didn’t really have any expectations that it would make a difference but I have been surprised and amazed by how much it has helped and by how much I have been able to make positive changes in my life. Before coming to counselling I didn’t really understand what ‘unconditionality’ was all about but it has made all the difference. I guess I feared being judged and criticised for my past actions but it’s not been like that at all. Thank you Bradley. Thank you for all of your support. S, Kent.

I just wanted to let you know that I have passed my university degree. Your help and support has been incredible: the best counsellor I’ve ever had. I always looked forward to our sessions and I couldn’t have done this all without you. I, Midlands.

The only thing I keep thinking is why didn’t I do this 15 years ago. I waited so long and struggled on my own all that time. Ok so in the first few sessions I was a bit nervous and I didn’t quite know what to say but you quickly helped me to feel at ease. I then looked forwards to our sessions and the rest followed from there. Thank you Bradley. J, Kent.

Thank you very much Bradley for your help throughout the past few months. I appreciated your style and honesty greatly and I found the sessions to be really helpful. M, London.

Bradley, you have helped me no end. Thank you. This is easily the best thing I’ve done since moving to this country. A, Kent.

My first session

Are you feeling apprehensive about seeking Counselling support?

The initial step of deciding whether or not to contact a counsellor – the step that also involves admitting that we could use some support and that we cannot do it all alone – is often a nerve racking step. It is also a courageous step.

So if you are feeling fearful, unsure, worried or scared, then you have my full understanding.

But if you are reading this then you are reading this for a reason. So don't struggle on your own anymore. Reach out and get the support that you need. I look forward to hearing from you,
