I do not see clients who have significant learning difficulties, are experiencing psychosis; are actively suicidal; have severe personality disorders or demonstrate violent or aggressive tendencies.

My approach
My counselling approach is integrative, using several different counselling models, including person-centred, existential, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural therapy.
 
Certain counselling styles and approaches suit some people more than others, so I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right support for you.
 
My experience 
I have many years’ experience in the counselling and psychology field, including working in several General Practitioners’ (GP) surgeries in Islington and Essex, Survivors UK supporting male victims of sexual abuse or sexual violation, drug and alcohol services, Mind in Camden and supporting adults with autism spectrum disorders and their families.

I have regular supervision in accordance with the relevant professional bodies, the British Psychological Society and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am on the National List of Male Sexual Assault Therapists at SurvivorsUK.
