About me and my therapy practice

PG Diploma. MSc, MBACP (Accred). I am highly specialised in dealing with men's issues including violence, sexual trauma recovery, worrying of frightening sexual interests, pornography issues, fear of the world and fear of self. Men are still dealing with the message that emotions equal weakness; 'big boys don't cry'. I provide a respectful, unthreatening space where together we can counter that message. Limited lower cost sessions are available; Fees range from £35.00 for those on the lowest incomes to £70.00 for higher earners. I try to make counselling as affordable as possible for those on the lowest incomes and can be flexible around number or regularity of sessions to limit the financial impact. Home visits may be available in certain limited circumstances. Mens' therapy groups and mixed sex groups are available. Groups for those suffering with porn addiction or other sexual issues can be arranged. Working with couples can be considered certain limited circumstances. I have previously provided Counselling, Psychotherapy & Clinical Supervision with Mankind UK, Sussex & Surrey Probation Service, Brighton University and Brighton & Hove Council as well as in my private practice. My current practice is based in the Newington Area on Minto Street. I also teach on the Counselling Course at Edinburgh University and the HNC at Edinburgh College. My approach is mainly person centred and client led, however people come to therapy with goals and I keep focussed on those goals to help the clients get the growth they want. I invite clients to stay active in their growth and often invite them to undertake tasks and exercises outwith therapy sessions, but these are only invitations and not compulsory. Call me or email me (no SMS please) to discuss an initial assessment.
