Profile

Andrew is a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with a background in working in coaching in business for over 20 years. He has a passion for understanding human motivation, relationships and how people deal with life’s real challenges, both internal (e.g. stress, anxiety, confidence, depression) and external (e.g. work, relationships, family, life factors). He also volunteered for several years with the Samaritans, before coming to psychotherapy. Andrew has strong interest in life functioning challenges, those things in work, relationships, home and family that hold us back, cause distress and stop us living a valuable life consistent with our personal values. These include stress, burnout, anxiety, confidence, depression, interpersonal relationships, abuse, trauma and attachment issues, which may stem from recent life experiences or earlier experiences across the full lifespan.

In working with clients, Andrew works with the client’s goals in therapy as central, providing a safe, curious and accepting therapeutic space. This is where a client’s self-direction and autonomy is supported through collaboration, where a strong warm therapeutic relationship supports and empowers the client’s journey, fostering resilience. Andrew is welcoming to all clients and is an LGBTQ+ ally.

Andrew practices from a collaborative integrative approach, bringing together diverse therapeutic approaches including person-centred, cognitive behavioural, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based, reality therapy as well as solution focussed approaches.
