Training & Accreditation
Simon qualified as a therapist in 2014 and is a fully accredited member of the IACP. He holds a Diploma and First Class Honours BSc Degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy from PCI College/Middlesex University. He also has a Practitioner Certificate in Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes from the Metanoia Institute in London.
“My aim is to offer you an accepting, non-judgemental environment where you can be yourself; one where you are really listened to, where you can grow, and where you can find your own answers in your own time. I am a therapist, lecturer and group facilitator and I work from an integrative-humanistic foundation. This means that while I may draw on ideas and techniques from various modes of therapy as best suits the needs of the client, the backbone of my work is firmly based on the ideals of humanistic approaches and their belief that everyone has an in-built capacity to reach their potential. Pride in oneself should not be reserved for a lucky few.
One of my specialisms is Writing Therapy, a creative way of working that can bring additional awareness and perspective to all kinds of situations. If you are interested in journaling and/or creative writing or have a passion for the music of words, I can help you give this a more central place in your therapy, but only if this works for you.
I am a member of the LGBTQ+ community and am passionate about diversity. I have worked with people from an array of backgrounds and life experiences, of different ages, genders, nationalities, sexualities, cultures and spiritual beliefs – I treat each client’s unique story with the same openness and respect, and I look forward to hearing yours.”
