My Approach

Starting counselling/therapy can be a daunting prospect, but I believe you have already started the journey by looking here. It's important for you to find the right person to be your counsellor/therapist - which is why I offer a free 30-minute session for us meet without any expectation for commitment. Before deciding whether to book an introductory session, here is a little overview about me and my approach:

I'm Jack, a BACP accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor. I work online or by telephone and can offer support short term or long term. I will be led by you and meet you where you're at. Together, we can create a safe and supportive space for us to explore what is going on for you and for you to be heard and understood. 

I draw on the humanistic approach and aim to focus on understanding your unique perspective and experiences. We can decide together what you’re working on; but typically, we may touch on finding your strengths, exploring self-development, and ways you can grow and feel better about yourself and your situation.
