About me and my therapy practice

Hi I'm Stephen,

I aim to provide an empathic and non-judgemental counselling space where you can feel free to discuss whatever is troubling you. Counselling offers the opportunity to be heard, and it can also help us to see problems from a different perspective and to begin finding ways of integrating difficult feelings and experiences. In doing so, we can live with greater authenticity. I work with an integrative approach which is client centred and adopts different ways of working according to your needs. In this way, the therapeutic relationship becomes more important than any particular theory of counselling.

I have worked in the NHS and in teaching and I am interested in work related issues such as stress and the pressures of the work environment. Working in different fields and changing roles has given me insights into the challenges of work and career change. Having lived and worked in various parts of the world, including Sudan, Egypt and Japan, I am interested in our relationship with our own and other cultures, and how we find meaning and a place in the world as an outsider.
