About me and my therapy practice

New clients welcome.

I specialise in offering a face to face and online service specialising in helping other men.

I have extensive experience of helping clients issues of anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and with men who are victims/survivors of domestic abuse.

I have many years of experience of working with clients from the LGBTQIA++ community.

Session with me last 1 hour.

 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.
