Welcome. My name is Dean, I'm an integrative counsellor, and I'm here to help you see through the complexities of your life to a clearer centre.

My way of working is characterised by presence, empathy, curiosity, and when appropriate, just the right amount of humour. On the surface, my integration is a carefully curated selection of different therapeutic approaches, but the way I work with them speaks to an individuality that's wholly my own, and so therapy with me becomes its own modality.

I have experience and a particular interest in making sense of the difficulties people so often experience in romantic relationships, and welcome anyone in their 20s or 30s who find themselves lost in the chaos of those years. I also work with familial relationships and traumatic childhood events, and provide a patient and compassionate space for people in addictive relationships with things such as alcohol, sex and porn.
