29 Years Experience

I have 30 years clinical experience in mental health. I am Psychotherapist trained in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Psychodynamic and EMDR therapy (level 3). I am also a senior clinical nurse specialist in psychological medicine with a background in mental health nursing. I feel that my background as a clinician as well as a psychotherapist allow me to have a deep level of understanding around the many varied types of difficulties that many of us face. I am also a lecturer in mental health nursing at the University of West London. My current Doctoral studies are in the field of compassion and empathy. I have worked in many settings within the NHS and also the MOD where I worked as a trauma practitioner with returning British soldiers. My last NHS role was as a psychotherapist at the Tavistock and Portman NHS trust. I have an engaging therapy style and I believe the relationship is the most important aspect of the therapy. Compassion, understanding and a none judgemental stance form the cornerstone of my practice. I am always happy to share some of my testimonials from previous clients who I have provided treatment for over the last few years. I am on the BACP register and am accredited to ACAT.

"n/a"
   
"I just started therapy with Stephan. I can already see he is very knowledgeable and patient. Even though, english is my second language, and I have different cultural background, Stephan seems to be able to understang my issues by applying his knowledge and experiences. After the session, my heart and body felt lighter, and I could ground my mind better, which I couldn't feel for a long time. Although my issues are still here with me unresolved (Just because I had only one session), I feel very relieved to find a safe ground to face my issues. "

Steve is a very approachable individual and extremely flexible with his sessions. I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone."
