Welcome

Hi, I’m Andy, welcome to my counselling service.

Everyone has problems in their lives but sometimes you cannot handle your problems alone. Friends and family can help, but maybe you don’t want to burden them, maybe they don’t really help, or maybe they are the problem. It can be difficult for you to find your own unique way through difficulties.

In counselling you can talk about whatever is important, work through difficult situations, find out what is right for you.

You may be struggling with a particular problem that is happening right now – work stress, anxiety, relationship difficulties, bereavement or any number of other challenges that life brings. You may, on the other hand, have the feeling that nothing goes right and be living with a long-term pattern of similar problems.

Counselling helps you to understand yourself better and through that understanding, help you find what’s right for you.

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
Carl Rogers

I offer a confidential, safe space where I can help you explore your concerns without shame or judgment. I won’t tell you how to live, I won’t pathologise who you are, instead I will help you to understand yourself better and through that understanding, help you find what’s right for you.

I recognise my own many privileges in society and am an ally to people who are in a disadvantaged position of ethnicity, gender, class or ability. I work with people of all sexualities, genders and gender alignments who are in diverse relationships including monogamy, non-monogamy or polyamory. I work with people whose lifestyle is misunderstood and subject to disapproval such as kinksters or sex workers. I am LGBTQ-friendly, Kink-knowledgable and listed with Pink Therapy who champion truly non-judgemental therapy for people with diverse identities and in diverse relationships.

I have experience of working with: Anxiety • Trauma • Post-Trauma • Depression • Gender • Gender Identity • Sexuality • Asexuality • Marriage • Diverse Relationships • Anger • Workplace Problems • Relationships • Bullying • Confidence • Bereavement • Childhood Abuse • Domestic Abuse • Physical Abuse • Sexual Abuse • Personal Development • Family Problems • Step-Families • Self-Esteem • Self-Harm • Divorce • Betrayal • Stress • Kink • BDSM • Sex Work and many others.
