He trained as a Psychodynamic counsellor and has his own private practice. In order to provide a more holistic approach to therapy, he undertook additional training in CBT which was more applicable to the teenagers he was working with in his role as a secondary school tutor where support for stress, anxiety and OCD were required on a regular basis.
To complement these therapies, and following his interest in the overlap between therapeutic styles, he undertook further training as a hypnotherapist. He combines a passion for theoretical knowledge with a breadth of understanding of different styles of therapy and a wealth of experience as a teacher, tutor and therapist.
