Hi, my name is Dean and I’m a Person Centred/ Integrative Counsellor with a real passion for supporting people to work through personal struggles and discover more about themselves. I really believe in the strength of the therapeutic relationship as a healing tool in itself, and wish to help my clients to feel safe, valued and deeply understood and respected.

My approach is sensitive and intuitive. I aim to direct my clients’ awareness to their inner experiences so we may work towards discovering the heart of an issue. I respect and honour the wisdom and experience my clients bring and trust that through working collaboratively, and drawing upon our mutual skills and expertise we can find an approach which works best for you.

I have worked for a number of years within a local charity and have experience working with a wealth of issues, particularly anxiety, depression and historical trauma. As a qualified Hypnotherapist and Reiki Master I can also use my mind-body-energy awareness where appropriate to provide further insight and tools for healing and growth.

I am currently Offering sessions online or via Phone and have availability on weekday evenings. I also offer free consultations, so we can have a chat before you commit to anything and see if it feels right for you.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to meet you soon! :)

Warmest wishes
