About Me

Hello, I’m Stuart an Accredited EMDR Practitioner, Qualified Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Couples therapist.

 

Talking about things that we emotionally struggle with can feel both scary and overwhelming leading to not seeking the support we need.                                           Often, I hear the phrase “others have it far worse than me…” and where there may be a truth in that phrase, I believe YOU are just as important. This is the ethos of my practice.

I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to talk, be heard, your personal experience validated and for positive change to occur.                       I have also experienced personal therapy so understand how daunting the first step can be; at first I found it scary, challenging but always supportive and it gave me a greater self-belief and deeper understanding of myself that I continue using today.

Free Consultation

Finding the right therapist for YOU is paramount.

I offer a free initial 45 min consultation for us to meet, for you to ask any questions you may have and us to briefly explore what is impacting you.               Don’t worry about having the “right” words; you may feel you want to make changes due to an uncomfortable feeling, unexplained distress or be unsure how to begin to resolve low mood, anxiety or stress.                                                     My encouragement is for you to use this independent (from friends/family), impartial and free consultation to see if you want us to work together towards a more positive place.
