About the Therapist
I am a BACP Accredited counsellor based in Tottenham, London. As a therapist, I believe in the central importance of establishing a working relationship in which my client feels safe and understood and in using that relationship as part of the therapeutic process. I am also interested in exploring the influence of childhood and other past experiences on a client's current difficulties and in working with the unconscious. This enables me to help clients understand themselves at a deeper level so that they can bring about long-lasting change.
I am doing an advanced training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy in order to be able to work with clients at greater depth. I draw on the strands of psychoanalytic thinking that are questioning of traditional views on gender and difference. As part of my psychoanalytic training and my wider self-development, I am engaged in learning about the impact of institutional and societal discrimination, including racism, and reflecting on my position as a white, cisgendered and non-disabled man within this system.
Being an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) means that, in addition to having completed a a BACP-recognised course, I have achieved high standards of knowledge, experience and development. I have extensive experience of working with gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans people and supporting them to manage any difficulties they may be experiencing.

I am experienced in supporting people dealing with anxiety and depression, relationship problems, low self-esteem, shame, bereavement, trauma, addictive behaviours, the effects of childhood sexual abuse and sexual diversity issues, among others. I have a very good track record of helping clients to manage their depression, anxiety or other difficult feelings, accept themselves better and enhance their emotional well-being.
I have worked with many gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans people, some of whom have struggled with internalised homophobia or transphobia. I have experience of working with people engaged in compulsive sexual behaviours or who use chemsex drugs. You may be in a traditional or non-traditional relationship or hesitating between the two. In this matter - and in any others you may wish to discuss in therapy - I would seek to work with you so that you can come to a position that feels right for you.
I work with people on a weekly basis: this can be once, twice or three times a week, depending on your preference. Most of the work I do is longer term, e.g. over six months.

If you decide to work with me, we would meet at the same time and place every week for the duration of your therapy. Unless otherwise agreed, I charge for missed sessions. If you cannot make a session I will always try to find another time in the same week when we can meet.
