Being self-aware and having the capability to think and feel emotions with clarity and understanding is part and parcel of being human. Unlike animals, our thought processes rely on far more than instinct alone.
Today, the art of talking therapies such as counselling, are used to help people come to terms with many problems they are facing, with an ultimate aim of overcoming them.
We have two counsellors who are currently taking on new clients - Meet Dan and Victoria below.
I welcome clients who want to understand or make a bit more sense of the challenges they're facing. I am particularly interested in helping you if you're seeking counselling for your marriage/relationship or communication issues, within family dynamics or in the workplace. Obstacles in life can leave us feeling stuck, invisible, alone or lost in our struggles to succeed. I am a strong believer in the therapeutic potential of being truly understood, seen and heard. With the right conditions, I have no doubt that we can be empowered to find our own answers and triumph over our difficulties with honesty and acceptance. I will work alongside you through discomfort, whether facing confusion or frustration, fear or loneliness. Offering safety and support in a bright, comforting environment, my hope is that we will get to a place where you can feel more content with yourself and where you're going.

Life is complex and is becoming ever more difficult to navigate. After a turbulent childhood and 26 years as a Royal Marine Commando, I have experienced an extensive assortment of challenges both in my personal and professional life that I have overcome. During this time, I have also embraced supporting both individuals and families who have been going through difficulties, through both the course of my work as well as within my local community.
This access and experience afforded me the opportunity to develop a set of highly proficient interpersonal skills to numerous diverse and inclusive cultures without any fear of judgement ever being evident. Further growth through training of this skillset has enabled a comprehensive personal resolve and resilience to gain positive outcomes to those that have faced complex personal, social and psychological issues.
This is why I believe that every person should receive the best support that they need and that this will have a positive effect not only to them personally but also to their family/social dynamic and thus to society i.e. the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. So, I took to becoming expansively trained in a way that I could make the most difference to people’s lives, whilst maintaining specialist experience in complex issue solving.
I strive to be someone who you can find a rapport and communicate with empathetically. Who is enthusiastic, dedicated, resilient and can support you in your issues, whilst maintaining clear boundaries and confidentiality. I want to make a difference to those that I work with that will have lasting effects on their lives, by being innovative and informed by substantiated best practice but not losing the human touch.
