About me and my therapy practice

I offer relationship counselling for couples and individuals.

My aim is to provide a safe space where life challenges can be explored and also, if appropriate, where we can create a solid treatment plan.

As an integrative counsellor I use a wide range of approaches as is appropriate to a particular client - however I do believe that past experiences influence the way we form and maintain relationships therefore in my practice I often use the attachment theory as a main theoretical orientation.

I help my clients become fluent in telling their own life stories so that the past no longer confuses and overshadows what is important right now in clients’ lives and their relationships.

In sessions I am unlikely to tell clients what decisions they should make but I will provide a safe base from which exploration becomes exciting and enlightening.

I recognise that contacting an appropriate counsellor is a daunting and anxiety-provoking task, therefore I invite you to get in touch with me to ask any questions you may have and if you feel I could be the right counsellor for you to arrange an initial consultation.

Some of the issues I work with include anxiety, panic attacks, depression, stress, anger, inner critic, work issues, loss, childhood wounds, intimate relationships, life transitions, male identity, and finding meaning and purpose. Addictions (this can affect both the user and their family and friends) is one of my specialisms.

Practice description

Currently I am taking on clients willing to work on-line via Zoom or Skype.
