My talking therapy approach offers empathy, understanding, is non-judgemental and is conducted in an environment that is confidential and safe as we sensitively explore your thoughts, feelings, relationships, family history and past traumas or deficits to make sense of these issues so that you feel relief from your distress and once again have greater control of your own life.

I draw upon different schools of psychotherapy to establish how the past might be impacting the present and how current issues in your private or working life may be causing you difficulties or distress.

I work relationally, placing you – the client – at the heart of the process, and it is this dual relationship that can work as a transformative force for change, growth and healing to help you recover from whatever problems are troubling you.

​​

The therapeutic relationship that you and I create, together, can be a source of support and comfort, while providing a place in which to make sense of these issues, challenge perceptions, and highlight unhelpful behavioural and thought patterns, so that you learn new ways of relating and ultimately be your authentic self to enjoy living again.

 

As a gay male I hold a life experience of feeling different and belonging to a minority group and have used this knowledge and my training to volunteer and work for LGBTQ organisations in dealing with a wide range of problems, especially those within the LGBTQ community, around sex, sexuality, identity, addiction, anxiety, depression, shame and self-esteem. 

I have an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy and I am a professionally registered member of the UK Council of Psychotherapy.
