I am an NCS Accredited Counsellor with an Integrative approach integrating Person Centred Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
My work is influenced by twelve years experience working at depth as a practitioner of Integrated Energy Healing (somatic mind/body therapy) involving Inner Child Healing and Ancestral Healing. I use maps, protocols and approaches from Internal Family Systems Therapy in my work.
My clients come to work with a wide range of problems including; anxiety, depression, grief, loss, low self-esteem, intrusive or obsessive thoughts, OCD behaviours, Adult AD(H)D, shame, anger, addictions, relationship issues, developmental trauma, unresolved childhood issues, attachment issues and more.
Through listening, authenticity and sensitivity,
I offer a secure therapeutic relationship in which you can feel safe to explore the issues that bring you to counselling. I believe in a holistic, pragmatic and therapeutic approach that takes account of you as a whole person in the broader context of your life.
What other people have said..
"Excellent. Ben’s ways of working with the counselling were amazing. I have had a few different experiences of counselling over the years but nothing as helpful as with Ben. Professional and empathic, Ben gave me techniques I can use to relax and helped me see my experiences in a more positive light."
A.K., Retired Nurse
"I was full of stress coupled with depression, dealing with past trauma in my life and not knowing how to get past it or move on from it. I could smile again and engage with people more, 1 day at a time, learning to take time for me, a lot of weight was lifted from my shoulders. Very helpful, always professional and sometimes funny, but to the point and always honest."
"I value all you have helped me achieve over the time you have been counselling me. I feel in a much stronger and empowered place now - confident to be able to recognise, manage and respond to my own needs appropriately."
