About me and my therapy practice

I specialise in helping other men with issues of anxiety, bereavement, chemsex issues, depression, relationships, LGBTQAI+ issues and men who have been or are currently victims of abuse.

Many men feel awkward talking about their feelings or asking for help when it comes to mental health issues for a variety of reasons. 

 My style is to support you through a conversation to look at what is currently going on in your life, what you want to change and where appropriate your past. You can then through exploration, choose the way that you want to change. That may include learning new practical skills. Counselling is not an advice service. I cannot fix you.

I also have extensive experience and training via Pink Therapy for working with clients of sexuality, gender and relationship diversities.
