About your psychotherapist

It’s a delicate balance and I have spent many years getting it right. Together we will draw the best out without pressuring or rushing you. And any changes we achieve together will be ones that last. You can be assured that I hold all the necessary qualifications, and insurances and I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Registered MBACP (Accred)).

I spent my early years serving in the Navy but was discharged following an accident. The time that followed forced me to learn a lot about myself and what makes me happy. In doing so, I discovered a lot about human nature and why we are the way we are. And this unearthed my vocation.

I have put many years into my training, attaining a 2:1 Honours degree in psychology. I worked as a Brief Therapist for four years, which involved helping people who had been affected by drug and alcohol misuse and dependency.
I have completed diplomas in counselling and psychotherapy, and I am trained and qualified as a practitioner of hypnotherapy.

This has given me more than fourteen years of valuable experience. My varied involvement has allowed me to work with countless people and explore a wide range of issues. This has rewarded me with boundless capabilities and the knowledge to help with whatever a client is going through.

Every client is unique and that’s what keeps me passionate about my work. In the tranquillity of the Millfields in Stonehouse, I offer accommodating appointments with some availability in the early evening if that suits you better. Home visits might be available, if you are unable to attend the counselling room and we can even use FaceTime to talk online.

Counselling and therapy for all

A couple of decades ago, homosexuality was considered a mental illness by the World Health Organisation. With awareness this has changed but still we need to spread a lot of awareness. I also work with gender, LGBT and sexual diversity clients. I help you deal with relationship issues, emotional traumas, stigmas and more.

"Having never had the need to speak to someone before and not knowing what to expect, I found, from our first meeting to be relaxed and informal. There was no pressure and Ben helped me by just listening and giving me time to understand myself again." - Anonymous Client
