My name is Andy, and I have been an accredited psychotherapist and counsellor for nine years. Prior to that I worked in the public and charity sectors, building helping relationships with people of all backgrounds for over ten years. It is my belief that counselling should be a flexible and supportive process; one that is firmly grounded in theory, yet also adapted to suit the strains and difficulties of modern life.
I am trained integratively, meaning I combine many approaches and theories in my work with the hope that together we can find a unique model that works for you. My particular areas of interest and experience are sexual and gender identity, trauma, relationship and sexual difficulties, anxiety and depression, sexual violation, bereavement and chronic illness. However, we are all unique beings and are much more than the sum of our experiences and difficulties. For that reason I approach every new client with fresh eyes, and hope to provide a safe, non judgemental space for you to explore.
If I can help at all, or if you would like a brief and informal chat about what therapy involves and how it might help you, please do get in touch – I would be very happy to hear from you.
I also provide supervision for counsellors, or anyone working in a helping profession. Do please contact me if you would like to discuss your requirements.

I have a sliding scale of £60 to £90 per 50 minute session, depending on income. It is important to me that counselling and psychotherapy are as affordable and accessible as possible. For that reason concessions may be available on a case by case basis. If you are unable to afford the fees above but are interested in working with me, please do get in touch.
