My Approach

I work in an integrative way - this means I don’t subscribe to a single theory that explains everything about what might cause our problems. Instead, I’m interested in how thinking about your life from a range of different perspectives and helping to re-connect the parts of you that might feel lost.

I strongly believe in a two-way process - we can work together with the goal of helping you realise your potential, find growth and feel more connected to yourself.

About Me

I want to help you rediscover yourself. There are so many parts of our past and our present that can take us far from where and who we would like to be - I view one of the main goals of psychotherapy as helping to guide us back.

Sometimes it’s easy to describe a problem you need help with, and sometimes it may be difficult to name precisely, other than wanting to feel differently. I can help with a range of problems such as:

low self esteem and confidence issues | depression | anxiety | stress | addiction | relationship issues with a partner, friends or family | recovery from abuse or other trauma | anger management | bereavement | sexuality | gender, sexual and relationship diversity | work and career-related issues

I have particular experience in working with clients who identify as LGBTQ+ or who are exploring their sexuality and/or gender expression. I am a cisgender gay man and use he/him pronouns.

My training as a psychotherapist has taken place at Birkbeck, University of London and the Metanoia Institute. I hold an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy, a Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling.
