About me and my therapy practice
I am a second-generation, Black British man of Jamaican descent. I feel fortunate to come from very diverse family backgrounds, including White, Indian and Chinese. This sense of richness has, I think, enabled me to gain a deeper understanding of the environments in which I have lived. For example, I have fond memories of visiting my grandparent's house in Birmingham, where one of their tenants - a charming Indian woman - gave me a memorable lesson in making chappatis!
I have travelled extensively, including South America, Africa and Asia, which has also helped me to gain a deeper understanding of the world in which we live.
I embrace diversity and difference, and I enjoy working with people from different walks of life, ethnicity, religion, culture and sexuality.
I work from a comfortable, purpose-built therapy room in a garden setting in Frampton Cotterell, South Gloucestershire. I offer a counselling environment that is safe, supportive and non-judgmental. I offer a free, 30-minute initial consultation for us to meet, discuss your concerns, and establish our relationship.
My therapeutic approach is Person-Centred, combined with elements of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). I will help you to reflect and explore the issues that concern you, working towards finding your own solutions to making your life happier, and overcoming challenges.
I am experienced in working with people from the LGBTQ community; difference does not have to mean isolation, misunderstanding or anxiety.
