I am an approachable, dynamic, warm Person Centred psychotherapist. I believe that given the right set of conditions as human beings, we cannot help but move towards reaching our full potential. Working together in a therapeutic relationship we will create a space where you will meet yourself in a unique way, at a pace that works for you, allowing you to explore the habitual patterns, beliefs and behaviours that hold you back from being fully who you are.

I am about to complete my psychotherapy training and have over twenty years of experience in leading personal development and group work.


Psychotherapy with Ben

I have worked in the corporate world of banking alongside being a leader in personal development and parenting  work for over two decades. As a result, I am confident and comfortable working with people from all walks of life.

I am also an experienced parenting, couples and anger management coach. As a father of grown up children, I understand only too well the challenges of being in a family. My work as a parent coach is as much about focussing on the behaviour of the child as it is looking at how we, as parents, respond, communicate and set boundaries with our children. I believe that it is only when both of these parts are worked on together that it is possible to achieve respectful and trusting relationships in the family.

The way I work with couples coach focuses on supporting both people to express themselves, working towards a meaningful, satisfying relationship, whatever the shape of the couple or the family.

Parenting and Couples

I’ve been working with parents, couples and men since 2008. I run an ongoing Parenting Group and a Men’s Group. I have extensive experience working with men as a leader with The Mankind Project, a worldwide organisation that supports men in their ongoing personal development. I was a trustee and key member of the team which formed JourneyMan UK.

Parent coaching sessions can be in your home to make it easier if you have young children. I work virtually on Zoom and on the telephone. I also offer walk and talk sessions on Hampstead Heath.
