Counselling and psychotherapy online in Cambridge

Welcome to my counselling, psychotherapy and couples therapy practice. As a long established, accredited and registered counsellor/psychotherapist I offer relaxed, conversational therapy where you can talk in confidence about any troubling issues.

After 18 years of practice in Cambridge, my in room therapy work relocated to Bristol BS48 during March 2019. However, as an experienced online therapist I continue to offer the same range of work to people via online video chat (FaceTime, WhatsApp, VSee and Zoom). I also supervise counsellors, psychotherapists and other mental health professionals via online video chat.

I am an experienced, fully qualified, accredited and BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) 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 from Cambridge connect via online video chat for private sessions include:

  • anxiety, stress, rumination, self-blame
  • issues around relationships, sex, sexuality, gender and sexual addictions
  • working with male and female depression
  • past sexual trauma and abuse
  • low self-confidence and negative life events
  • issues concerning personal development and fulfilment
  • bereavement
  • work-related difficulties
  • psychosomatic illnesses
  • trauma and childhood abuse (female and male)
  • male and female eating disorders and psychological issues that relate from food intolerance and IBS
  • searching for help with mindfulness.

If you are looking for couples counselling, relationship help, sex therapy or help with sexuality issues you might like to look at the relevant pages in the therapies section of this site or you could also look at my Therapy-Space Couples website. My face-to-face website can be accessed at Therapy Place Bristol

I have particular experience in the areas of:

  • working with women who prefer to see a male counsellor/psychotherapist
  • working with men
  • couples therapy
  • pornography addictions and issues; read my book?
  • workplace performance anxiety and stress management
  • working creatively
  • mentoring and facilitation for individuals, groups and organisations
  • compulsive eating, dieting, anorexia and bulimia.

I work with individuals and couples, and supervise other practitioners. I also work with organisations that require my services as a supervisor, therapist for staff members and/or a coach/mentor/facilitator on wider organisational issues.

If you feel face-to-face work would be a better option for you then please contact one of my trusted colleagues below:

I have particular interest in, and a great deal of experience of, working with individuals and couples (of all orientations) on sexual and relationship issues – including sex therapy. Whether you call it ‘having problems talking’ or just ‘going through a bad patch’, couples therapy is likely to help clarify the underlying issue or issues. I am also used to working with sexual and relationship difficulties that arise from infidelity (cheating), using escorts and/or inappropriate use of the Internet such as sexual Internet addictions.

The Internet and social media can amplify many different types of relationship issue, but they tend to be things that respond well to a talking therapy such as the one I offer. Sadly, sometimes relationships have to break up, and considering the splitting-up process might be something you need to do in the safe and thoughtful place that therapy normally becomes.

I am also used to working with risky sexual behaviours of all sorts. If you would like to contact me about any issues related to a relationship or sexual difficulty then you can email me confidentially to arrange a time to talk.

Before you make the decision to begin counselling or psychotherapy you may have some questions about what the process might entail or how it might help you. Since evidence suggests that it is the relationship between you and your therapist that has one of the greatest impacts on the success of the work you do in counselling or psychotherapy, please feel welcome to contact me via email or telephone and we can have a short conversation prior to you thinking about booking a session. You can also read my blog for information about a wide range of psychotherapy and counselling issues.

My online practice is accessable for people with mobility difficulties.

*I use video chat as a generic term for synchronus live video over the internet. Most of us know these types of platform through Skype and its like. Technically there could be possible security issues with the Skype platform when used for therapy, so I prefer to use a platform called Vsee. Vsee is designed as a telemedicine platform and performs well on low bandwidth so is less likely to dropout, stutter or let us down during our therapy session. If you have an Apple product then FaceTime is end-to-end encrypted. For Android users WhatsApp (also end-to-end encrypted) is a good alternative. Telephone is seen as being secure for the purpose of therapy.
