Whilst I welcome all, there are certain areas in which I have particular interest and experience,
which might help you to decide if we are the right fit.
Whilst the work of all therapists should be fully private and confidential, I have experience working with those in sensitive and high-profile roles such as public figures for whom discretion might be a key concern when seeking support.
Depression and Anxiety
My work in the NHS centred on the treatment of mild to severe anxiety and depression. Whilst depression and anxiety are broad presentations, I work from the perspective that they often have their roots in relationships, identity issues, or issues around work and meaning. In my expereince, focusing on these areas can greatly reduce symptoms.
Relationships & Sex
I'm interested in all relationships, but a lot of my work focuses on intimate relationships in particular, with both individuals and couples. I draw on attachment theory which can be useful lens through which to work on issues of intimacy, sex, commitment and conflict.
Issues around work are a common reason that people seek therapy. Whether related to stress, being over-looked or overworked, or deeper issues around meaning and identity through work, therapy can be a useful place to explore this important aspect of our lives.
With a decade working in theatre I'm well placed to help those in the creative industries, though I work across all sectors.
All families have their histories and dysfunctions. Sometimes, when unresolved, they can impinge on our present relationships, mood or mental health. Exploring these past and present family relationships can be extremely valuable in addressing current concerns.
I have substantial experience working with gay, lesbian and bisexual men and women as well as non-binary, queer and transgender people. My pronouns are He/Him. I am an Advanced Accredited Gender, Sex , & Relationship Diversities Therapist (AGSRDT) through Pink Therapy.
Human sexuality, gender and relationships come in infinite colours and flavours, and I bring no preconceptions, judgements or expectations to my work with you. My role is to help you to discover, at your own pace, where you might feel at your most authentic and comfortable through an affirming and exploratory therapy.
Although I work equally across all genders, men often feel more comfortable seeking support from a male therapist. I've worked with many men who, despite initial apprehension, have really leaned into therapy and got a lot out of it.
We don't have to share the same politics or values for therapy to be beneficial and I work with those across the political spectrum.
Intercultural Therapy and Intersectionality
Intercultural therapy takes into account external realities such as racism, sexism, refugee status, physical health and abilities and poverty.
It also recognises the differences and similarities of various aspects of culture between the client and therapist. Being able to connect with your therapist on a cultural plane can enable a deeper level of communication and a more effective therapeutic experience.
Intersectionality is an analytical framework for understanding how aspects of a person's social and political identities combine to create different modes of discrimination and privilege. Examples of these aspects include gender, caste, sex, race, class, sexuality, religion, disability and physical appearance.
I have worked in some of London's most diverse boroughs and the majority of my clients were from different racial, cultural and religious backgrounds to my own. Being a white male therapist may not seem the obvious choice for, say, a black female, but I welcome the opportunity to work with difference in what can often be an important therapeutic encounter.
Many people come to me with a sense of existential dread, an emptiness or lack of meaning. Sometimes this can be a way of unconsciously distracting from other issues that might be causing problems. Sometimes however, certain people are particularly tuned into the human condition asking life's bigger questions. I can offer a space to explore these feelings, with sensitivity and curiosity.
