About me and my therapy practice

I'm Simon, I love to work with individuals to build a trusting relationship and provide a safe and supportive space in which you can explore your concerns and find insight about your experiences. Through this exploration we can work towards the changes you are hoping for.

Practice description

I am a psychodynamic trained counsellor and so work to help you understand the unconscious expectations and drives that are an influence in your life.

For clients preferring face to face therapy, I work from a room in Brandside parish hall just south of Buxton - probably one of the highest (altitude) practices in the UK.

Alternatively, I am passionate about the benefits to clients of being in a natural (and sometimes wild) environment, with nature helping us in your therapeutic journey and so I also offer sessions in the outdoors. We can walk and talk while we explore your issues in one of the many naturally therapeutic locations around the Buxton area, with a variety of routes and spaces to suit your individual fitness or expectation.

I can also offer telephone or zoom video sessions, and have specialist training on the differences and challenges that working remotely brings.
