We all face personal crises and emotional difficulties at somepoint in our lives. And you may find it difficult to cope alone. While counselling in Twickenham, I aim to provide a safe therapeutic environment for clients seeking help with psychological issues.
In these difficult times, you may be seeking short-term, solution-focussed work; or longer-term therapy at more emotional depth. I focus on depression, trauma, bereavement, anxiety, stress and anger. As in life, the most important aspect of counselling is the quality of the relationship. You will find me empathic, compassionate and responsive to your needs.
Whether you are experiencing personal upheaval, relationship problems or just want to live a more fulfilling life, I understand it can be challenging to talk things through. You can therefore rely on me to listen with sensitivity and understanding. I provide a confidential, down-to-earth service that allows you to explore your issues in-depth without any hidden agendas. You will find me warm and easy to talk to. I enjoy helping people find a way forward; not by imposing my values on them. I consider my role as a vocation and a calling.
As well as my private practice, I teach trainee counsellors at Saint Mary?s University College and in Further Education. I have experience in public clinics, psychiatric hospitals, MIND and as the first male counsellor to practice in a rape crisis service. I have lived and worked in urban and rural areas, in inner cities and the suburbs, at home and abroad.
