My Approach

Ultimately, therapy is an opportunity to develop a greater understanding of who we are, and why we are the way we are. My integrative approach means that I draw on psychodynamic, humanistic, developmental and relational theory and practice to collaboratively explore the unique reality of each client, with compassion and curiosity, and without judgement. Exploring one's developmental history, for example, can help us to understand how early ways of adapting to the world might cause difficulties in the present, the adaptations no longer serving us as adults. Additionally, bringing unconscious processes into consciousness increases the likelihood that we can make different, more informed decisions in the present: Decisions that perhaps better serve us. The relational element of how I work means that some of the struggles the client experiences with others in the world (the macrocosm) are likely to manifest in the microcosm of the therapeutic space. These relational dynamics can then be explored in the "here-and-now" of the therapeutic relationship. This essentially means that the therapy space can act as an opportunity for clients to experiment with doing things differently.

About Me

Hello. My name is Shaun, and I provide psychotherapy in a safe and confidential environment, to collaboratively explore any issues and difficulties you may be experiencing. My approach is integrative: I adapt my approach to suit the client’s needs and draw on a range of schools of psychology to work with each unique individual.

I am both a registered Psychotherapist (UKCP) and Chartered Counselling Psychologist (HCPC and BPS), and have several years' experience working with clients with a wide range of difficulties, from anxiety, depression and relationship issues to personality disorders. Whilst I work with both long and short-term clients, I generally aim to build a long-term therapeutic relationship with my clients, as this increases the capacity to work at a deeper level. In addition to my private practice, I have also worked at MIND (the mental health charity) and the NHS.

How it works: We would start with an initial consultation session which allows us to explore your reasons for seeking therapy, and mutually decide if we are a good fit to work together.

I practice from two locations: Ladbroke Grove near Notting Hill in West London and Marylebone in Central London.

My fee is on a sliding scale of £85 to £120 per 50 minute session, depending on one's financial circumstances. The initial consultation is charged at the same rate.
