About Me

Hi I am Ken,  (He/Him) a person centred integrative counsellor and relationship counsellor in Burnley Lancashire


Life at times can be challenging and when we are not feeling ourselves, everyday issues and stresses can easily become unmanageable. We all need support at some point in our lives and I am here to support you when you feel ready to ask for help.


I have been a counsellor since 2016. As a counsellor I work in an Integrative Person Centred way which means you are the focus of our time together. I will work alongside you, assisting you to explore the issues of main concern.


Experience supporting members of the LGBTQI+ community - whether the issues were associated to their status or not, I understand the different pronouns, identities, terminology and subsections that people associate with and the fears and worries that they may have. Issues supported, exploration of own sexuality, 'coming out' fears and worries, gender dysphoria, transitioning, navigating diverse relationships.

With extensive experience of supporting clients through Bereavement and Suicide, I understand the complexities of loss and change when someone loses a loved one. Understanding, often it can be hard imagining a future without them. Working together, I will support you to a state of acceptance of your 'new normal'.



I also support clients presenting with many varied different issues and concerns.



A safe environment

A safe environment in a quiet office building in Burnley.


Long term and short term relationship therapy. Integrating different counselling techniques when needed.


Late night and Saturday Mornings offering great flexibility for those who need it.


In exceptional circumstances, I can also visit you in a safe environment away from my office (for an increased cost).


Now offering Zoom, Teams, Google Meets, Webex, Whereby or Skype based counselling.
