About Me

Hello. My name is Stephen, and I am a fully qualified, professional psychodynamic psychotherapist, registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), working to their codes of ethics.

The terminology of therapy is often confusing, but the way I work means that: although whatever has brought you to therapy is manifesting itself in your day to day life, behaviours, thoughts and feelings, I believe that it's roots could be in your past, possibly as far back as early childhood.

Starting in therapy can be intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore with you. I want to collaborate with you, for us to work together to really try and understand your thoughts, feelings and experiences, and help you move forward.

Perhaps you are feeling anxious, or are experiencing low mood. Maybe you have experienced a trauma, or are dealing with a lot of stress. Your relationships could be better, or you might want to make sense of your life so far. You might have suffered a loss, or simply feel that something isn't quite right, and that you need some help and support. These are just some of the presenting problems I can work with, and there are many more. 

People come to therapy, amongst other things, for:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression or low mood

  • Stress

  • Trauma

  • Abuse

  • Loss, bereavement or grief

  • Relationship issues

  • Low self esteem

  • Work related issues, such as burnout or whistleblowing.

  • Self harm and suicidal ideation

  • Anger management

  • LGBTQ+ issues

  • Addiction

  • Insomnia

  • Sex issues

There are just some of the presenting problems I am able to work with. Please get in touch to discuss how I can help.




In addition to psychotherapy, I am also taking bookings for  Attention Deficit  Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) testing. 
The UK has seen a surge in both ADHD testing and diagnosis over the past year or two, as awareness of the condition grows.  
ADHD is a common mental health disorder that starts during child development, but frequently persists throughout adolescence, and into the adult years.  
Common symptoms include inattention, distractibility, disorganisation, over activity, restlessness, impulsiveness and mood lability; and these may lead to considerable clinical and psychosocial impairments.  
ADHD is often seen at a high rate in people with other significant clinical problems including substance abuse, unstable mood states, anxiety, depression, forensic cases and emerging or developed personality disorder. 
ADHD is often associated with specific learning difficulties, and is a common problem in higher education.
Getting a test for ADHD can mean huge expense, or a lengthy wait, and often both, and sometimes even no guarantee that the person testing is genuinely qualified to do so. 
I am trained by the UK Adult ADHD Network (UKAAN), in conjunction with Kings College London, to screen for and diagnose ADHD, and to distinguish it from other mental disorders. This test is done with a clinical consultation and an assessment using the DIVA interview.
I aim to respond to testing requests quickly, and to charge a reasonable fee. Post test, I will endeavour to help you think about what the most helpful next steps are. ADHD can’t be cured, but it can be treated and managed via a variety of methods.  
I am also sensitive to the pressures and stress that parents or carers for those who have ADHD face, and can offer ongoing psychotherapy designed to support those in that situation. 
Testing can be done in Central London, in Esher in Surrey, online, or in your own home.
