Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way:
on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgementally

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I:

  • am a qualified psychotherapist, specialising in:

    • CBT & REBT after being inspired by the realisation that they are anchored in rationality and goals, and
    • Mindfulness, having experienced its benefits for clients and personally

  • am a married father of two independent adults and have, as one client put it, “experienced the rich tapestry of life”. I draw upon these, where helpful, to provide practical and pragmatic ways forward for clients
  • have a deep insight into working life and all its challenges. This is after 35 years in a wide variety of complex roles in many companies, with diverse people of all backgrounds
  • hold a degree in biochemistry which helps understand and explain the science of becoming psychologically disturbed and undisturbed. And importantly, how to prevent it happening
  • became a psychotherapist due to a deep desire to give back more, and help people unblock their problems to fulfil their dreams and ambitions.

Professional credentials:

  • an Accredited Member of The National Counselling Society (NCS), fully subscribing to its code of ethics. This includes being supervised and undergoing professional development
  • a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
