I offer Individual Adult Therapy, working from a male-specific integrated stance and with male-specific cognitive-behaviour therapy if required. In order to become a Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Psychologist, I studied initially for three years at undergraduate level in Psychology and then completed a four year doctoral training course at the University of Surrey. I work in way that combines three different therapeutic approaches Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, and Humanistic/Person-Centred Therapy. I also draw on other specific approaches such as Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassionate Mind Training. I have worked in Oxford Health NHS foundation trust's Psychological Services department, a community mental health team for Berkshire Mental Health NHS foundation trust, and have experience working within an NHS psychotherapy department. These roles involved working with a broad spectrum of psychological distress and mental health difficulties, ranging from mild to severe and enduring. Before becoming a psychologist, I worked in the music business for 12 years, and then became a stay-at-home father for 7 years. I have conducted research in the area of the male gender role, and its associated psychological distress and this is an area in which I specialise. I continue to be involved with the writing and dissemination of research in this area. I offer evidence-based psychological therapies for a wide range of emotional, relational, and behavioural difficulties. I am trained in a range of therapeutic approaches, which means that I am able to consider a person's difficulties in a way that suits their individual needs.I provide a therapeutic experience where a person can feel safe and secure within a non-judgemental professional environment provided by a competent and experienced practitioner. As a registered and chartered psychologist, I am committed to the codes of ethics for the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS) and adhere to their professional standards and practices.
