My Practice. 

Whether facing major or minor life issues, I provide everyone with the same safe and non-judgemental space, where my clients are free to explore anything and everything they want. I have no fixed time scale as everyone's concerns are unique. 

It takes a fair bit of courage to find and come to a complete stranger and even more to open your heart. Everyone needs a helping hand in life, I was able to take that help when I needed it, and I am privileged to be the one offering that help now. 

Come for a special introductory session for just £20, where  you can decide  whether counselling with me is right for you and if you do opt to continue with me, I charge a standard rate of  £45, but please ask to see whether you may be eligible for a concessionary rate. 


I  also offer Skype sessions for those unable to travel. I am happy to answer any questions you may have, using the form below or by email at:

               Thank you for visiting my site today.                                                                             Patrick.

If I have learned anything from my 57 years on this planet it's that life can be tough for all of us at times and we all go through our own trials and tribulations. My own life certainly hasn't been smooth and I will always be grateful for the counselling I received during a difficult time in my life and I still find it very useful to see my own counsellor every now and then. 

My journey has been key to my desire to help others, which I do at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, caring for patients with severe cognitive impairment, like advanced dementia and then more recently as a counsellor. I am fascinated by the human mind and believe that understanding our minds is the key to living our lives well. 

Genuineness, integrity, honesty and the ability to be non-judgemental are what you need from a counsellor and I believe this is what I can give. Finding someone who you think may be able to help can be a daunting task, which is why I offer my prospective clients a special introductory session for just £20, so you can decide. I look forward to welcoming you to anicca*-counselling.

Thought for Now.

Observe your self.

Understand your self.

You cannot end the torments of existence,

Unless you know your self.
