I am a Gestalt Psychotherapist and I have been running a successful counselling and psychotherapy service in Fulwood Preston for over 15 years. I originally trained and qualified as a Person-Centred Counsellor and began my practice in a GP Surgery in 1997. I completed my 5 year psychotherapy training in 2007 via York Psychotherapy Training Institute.
In July 2010 I completed the 2 year certificated training programme in Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy at the Centre for Somatic Studies in New York. I have completed 60hrs of supervision training with the Edinburgh Gestalt Institute and supervise both counsellors and psychotherapists.
I am an accredited member of the Gestalt Psychotherapy Training Institute and registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. I studied the Japanese martial art of Aikido for over 10 years and received my 2nd degree black belt in 2013. In 2018 I completed the Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon on the beautiful Isle of Harris and continue to run. I am a married father of two boys and live in Preston.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
