About me and my therapy practice

Offering an exciting and optimistic approach and providing online therapy and face-to-face sessions throughout South Wales and the South West of England. Mainly shorter-term and goal-driven, I aim to set people back on track quickly and proactively.

I have over ten years experience in the field of general practice, and have also worked as an addictive behaviour specialist in both residential and community settings with individuals, couples and families.

I am trained to work with people in an integrative manner and have a Master of Arts Degree and Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Wales. This means that I am qualified to use a variety of therapeutic approaches and can tailor my work to meet the needs of each individual client. This is crucial, as I believe that every client has the innate capacity to make their life better; my job is just to help people relocate that spark. My aim is to make counselling a positive and optimistic experience; a case of making life even better rather than fixing what is wrong.

Please take a look at my recent therapy and training testimonials at www.stephengthomas.com. These should give you an idea of how I work and my exciting and optimistic approach to therapy and training. I am a registered and recognised therapeutic provider and trainer for BUPA, Aviva, PruHealth and all major UK and global Employee Assistance providers.

As an integral part of my practice, I also offer a limited number of therapy sessions at a reduced rate to counselling/psychotherapy students-in-training. I also provide supervision for practising counsellors and psychotherapists as part of their CPD requirement. Please get in touch for more details.

COVID19 UPDATE: ONLINE THERAPY SESSIONS ARE GO!

In response to current governmental instruction, we have decided to temporarily switch all face-to-face sessions to Skype with immediate effect. Skype sessions work really well and can take place at your home; a great advantage during this period of enforced isolation. Skype is free and easy to download via the following link https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/

Simply find a quiet and confidential space at home for your session and you're good to go! Your garden or your car can work as great alternatives if there are no quiet or confidential spaces within your home.

These are extraordinary times and online therapy will help us to help you through. I therefore invite you to embrace this opportunity and dive into therapy via Skype!

About me and my therapy practice

fightingandspirit believes in the psychotherapeutic power of martial arts training. We combine the two disciplines at regular training events to help participants find their inner warrior.


We believe the and is a crucial element in our philosophy here at fightingandspirit. Martial arts have always offered participants an amazing opportunity to learn to trust and develop as part of a group. Equally, as experts in the field of counselling and psychotherapy, we recognise the mentally transformative potential of the mat room. Consequently, we understand that many adult learners of martial arts feel a desire to train for reasons of personal development rather than competition. Our passion is to harness this collaborative and compassionate aspect to training and use it to help you find your inner warrior.

Although this journey is unique to each of us, fightingandspirit encourages participants to explore the shared dimensions of this journey at regular training days and longer retreats. These events offer a combination of martial arts training, physical training, teamwork and personal development groups.

fightingandspirit training events are designed to enhance the health and wellbeing of all participants. As such, we welcome all skill levels and martial art disciplines and actively encourage newcomers to come join us.

Visit our website at www.fightingandspirit.com to learn more and book your space on our upcoming CPD training events for therapeutic professionals.
