I believe that with the right support, we all have the ability to move towards a more fulfilling and satisfying life.
Although my core training is in Person-Centred counselling. I have also trained to provide EMDR therapy for people struggling with trauma. I have a keen interest in other approaches, including mindfulness, eco-therapy and existentialism, which may be helpful for some people.
Beyond the counselling room, I am a father, musician and writer. I have worked and volunteered for environmental and social organisations for most of my adult life and am the founder of ‘Counselling for Social Change’ which ensures counselling is available to those on low incomes.
I am fully insured and DBS Checked. I’m an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society and adhere to their Code of Ethics.
