Choosing a counsellor/therapist is a decision to take carefully. For some people it's intuitive and the background of the professional isn’t necessary, while for others more information is needed. If the latter applies to you, I hope what follows will be of help.
I'm a father to two grown up daughters and have lived in Sussex since 1999. My professional background is two-fold. I worked in the creative sector for 25 years, developing a part-time job straight from school into senior international roles for agencies and brands. Managing complex projects in pressurised environments eventually led to leading teams and mentoring individuals.
Navigating loss in 2011 re-engaged an earlier passion for psychology, later inspiring me to attend Regents University London as a mature student. To study and train as a Counselling Psychotherapist.
I transitioned careers during 2016 combining my experiences to start The Unsaid Space and qualify with the bacp (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I've since spent 6500 hours working with individuals, as well as providing on-site clinics and workshops for teams and organisations. I continue to study psychological distress and
growth and any evidenced approaches to prevent the former and encourage the latter.
Having studied humanistic psychodynamic and existential theories, my approach goes far beyond ‘talking through problems’. I tailor sessions to help clients understand their experiences by combining open dialogue, body focusing, visualisation, creative expression and psycho-education as appropriate.
