Counselling, psychotherapy and sex therapy in North Somerset, Bristol and Online

Welcome to my Bristol and North Somerset (Backwell / Nailsea), psychotherapy and couples therapy practice. As a long established, accredited and registered counsellor/psychotherapist I offer a private, relaxed, comfortable and informal space where you can talk in confidence about any troubling issues. I also supervise counsellors, psychotherapists and other mental health professionals.

I am an experienced and long-established British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)-accredited and registered counsellor/psychotherapist. I studied psychology as part of my first degree and undertook my initial therapy training with Cambridge University.


Common reasons women and men visit me (or connect via online video chat) for private sessions include:

  • depression, rumination and self-blame
  • stress and anxiety
  • relationship issues
  • past traumas (including abuse)
  • low self-confidence and negative life events
  • sexual problems such as low sex drive (loss of libido) or erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • issues men and women have around loss in pregnancy
  • difficulties around sexuality and gender
  • digital addictions (including sex and porn addictions)
  • issues concerning personal development, fulfilment and
    searching for meaning and direction in life.


If you go to the Therapies section of this website you can view the pages for Individual Therapy, Couples Counselling, Sex Therapy and Online work as well as WalkTalk and Porn Recovery. This site will also let you read detailed information on the different services I offer in counselling, psychotherapy and coaching, and get a bit more of an idea of the professional, friendly and inclusive way I work. If you have any specific requirements or would like more information once you’ve had a read, then do please get in contact with me. You can read more detailed information about my work with couples on my separate website Therapy Place Couples.

If you are a therapist looking for face-to-face or online video-chat based supervision please click to the Supervision information page.

I know it can feel like a big deal to make the first step into counselling and psychotherapy, but I’ll do my best to help you feel comfortable right from your first contact with me.

I have particular experience of working with individuals and couples around sexual intimacy problems and sexual dysfunction (including via video-chat), even when the difficulties are connected to sexual addictions – including porn addiction, sexual risk-taking and issues associated with the use of escorts.


I have specific experience or expertise in the areas of:

  • working with women who prefer to see a male counsellor/psychotherapist
  • couples therapy
  • working with men
  • anxiety and stress management
  • working in creative, unique and individual ways
  • emotional issues raised for men and women when a pregnancy is ended
  • pornography addictions and issues, and
  • developing self-guided ways of working.




‘WILL I HAVE TO WAIT TO BOOK A SESSION?’
The side bar of any page on this site will generally have information about my availability (on mobile phones, this information shows at the bottom of the page). However, even if I’m fully booked do make contact if you’d like to work with me, as I might know that a space is coming up soon but am not ready to advertise it.




I originally established my thriving face-to-face practice in Cambridge UK at the beginning of the century. In 2005 I developed my online work (originally for counselling men through Skype and telephone) and since 2015 I have also been offering walk-and-talk therapy in the City of Bristol and in near by North Somerset around the Backwell area. In March 2019 I relocated my practice back to where I was born in Bristol and the sorrounding North Somerset area.


As a counsellor, psychotherapist and coach I currently offer:
