Meet Stephen

I’m a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist. I have worked as a mental health nurse with people experiencing mental health and addiction problems for over 20 years in NHS hospitals, prisons, supported accommodation and nursing homes.

I have worked with people experiencing relationship difficulties, personality disorder, depression and anxiety, grief & bereavement, childhood trauma and neglect, problem drinking, drug use and many other emotional or relational issues. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss an initial appointment.

Part of my caseload is reserved for people who cannot afford private therapy, they pay me an affordable donation for each session.

How I work

I will see you on a weekly basis at the same day and time each week. Each session lasts for 50 minutes.

Once you’ve attended an initial session and want to continue with therapy, that time and day is your slot for as long as you wish to continue and will be unavailable on the booking page of the website. I now request you pay in advance for an initial session, more details on the booking page
