Bereavement

Death & Dying 

I have been working with people suffering bereavement for nearly five years; in our culture, we don't speak about death; instead, we bottle it up and damage our health. Commonly loved ones cant communicate their love due to fear. Talking to a  specialist bereavement counsellor can help the grieving process and normalise thoughts and feelings. When a person is dying, talking to a counsellor might be less of a burden than family members or offer rest bite as I can visit and lessen the stress. 

4.

Sexuality and Gender 

Are you Feeling confused or wanting to come out and need a person to talk to first? Here we can discuss your needs emotions. The suicide rates related to sexuality and gender is exceptionally high; talking and working through who you are can help. Invite loved ones to the therapy room for support.

My Approach

I am an accredited person-centred counsellor, and I use this initially as my primary base as it allows the client to speak and be heard without judgment in a safe environment. I have mastered many other therapy techniques through various courses and degrees and implement them but always with the client's knowledge and consent. 

Main therapies I implement include 

Cognitive Behavior Therapy

Systemic Approaches

Person Centered 

Gestalt 

Mindfulness

Attachment Based 

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)

About me

I entered into the counselling world through ill health; at the time, I found very little help for the stresses I was enduring. I reflected on what I previously enjoyed about my careers and quickly realised that talking and helping people was the element I missed the most. Entering into Counselling and Psychotherapy was a natural choice. I am furthering my studies with the ambition of becoming a Dr in Clinical Psychology

I am an accredited member of  NCS and member of the British Psychological Society 
and member of the BACP

Getting Help

Reaching out for help, for many, is a daunting task and sadly, many people avoid facing their problems. Men traditionally don't ask for help, or when they do, support is not given. Many years ago, I asked a G.P for advice help. I realized day to day life was becoming a struggle, I was made to feel silly, and no support was given. 
Reaching out for help here could not be more simple. Drop me an email or call. Please leave a message.

I had therapy many years ago and found it a waste of time. Last year I lost my mother and suffered a nervous breakdown. I reached out for help, and Steve was excellent. I would recommend him to anybody he saved my life 

thank you
