About Ian

Ian is a qualified counsellor with a Level 4 Diploma in Counselling Applied Skills and Professional Standards. I use an integrative approach to counselling which combines several different approaches,  including person centred, psychodynamic and CBT and solution focussed therapy. This approach allows sessions to be tailored to your needs. Regardless of what method we use together, I use a person centred approach as the cornerstone of our relationship. 


If you are struggling with anxiety or depression. Trying to manage the demands of work and home life I am here to help. To work alongside you collaboratively to find solutions.

I work with individuals who have problematic sexual behaviours, including porn/sex addictions and their partners, in a trauma informed way. This may be about helping to restore a relationship, to understand the behaviour or help guide a path through the chaos that has been left behind. 

I have over 30yrs of public service helping individuals dealing with trauma and life's difficulties. As a member of the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation I can provide training in individual and group crisis interventions for organisations and charities alike to ensure your people get the best start possible in dealing with and healing from trauma and post traumatic stress. I am also available for consultation in creating peer support networks for your organisation.


At Reach Out I aim to provide a place where you feel safe and secure to explore counselling. A place where you are accepted, for who you are and where you are in this journey called life.

All of us should feel worthy and of value whatever the issue .

I will help you in a trauma informed manner, helping equip you to feel safe
