Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS19-08649

Location: London

Based in London, I support people to manage, or let go, the challenges life throws at us. Sometimes we cope well with these and sometimes we cannot which can lead to emotions such as anxiety (also shown as phobias, OCD, panic attacks and eating disorders), anger, guilt, shame and at times depression.
As a married father of two independent adults, I have experienced life's journey which is applied, where helpful, to provide practical and pragmatic ways forward for clients. After 35 years within complex roles in many companies, I also offer much insight into the workplace and its psychological challenges. Experience of what helped me thrive (and at times survive) is called upon where relevant.
Professional recognition includes being a Registered Member of the BACP and Member of the NCS. In addition, a degree in Biochemistry helps explain, where beneficial, the science of how to heal. Lastly, an MBA helps provide further insight into challenges we can face at work.
The first step when working together is to listen, fully understand and assess a client's problems, emotions and beliefs. Then we agree, together, clear goals and work to meet these. I also use Mindfulness exercises, which help manage our thoughts to enjoy life’s riches in the present and help change. Sessions have a focus on “quick wins” and results which involves straight talking, some challenge and homework which clients find beneficial and appreciate.
At the heart of my approach is to understand the unhealthy beliefs that cause psychological disturbance. Then we construct, together, a healthier set, challenge them and integrate the healthier beliefs with clients. This leads to healthier emotions when we are triggered by life.
