With the right help, I’m convinced that everybody can make change happen, even over a short period of time. So, no matter what your situation, I’m here to provide the non-judgmental, confidential space you need to explore your thoughts and feelings. And together we will find a way forward.

A confidential 50-minute face-to-face counselling session costs from just £40, with the flexibility of daytime, evening or weekend appointments. I can almost certainly offer you an assessment session this week, so if you need support and are considering counselling then do get in touch.

Professional standards

I use what’s known as an integrative approach – integrating the affective, behavioural, cognitive, and physiological systems within one person, as well as addressing any social and spiritual aspects. That just means that I work with each client as a whole person and use a variety of techniques to get the best result for you as an individual.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), am fully insured and work within the BACP Ethical Framework. I undertake ongoing professional training and attend regular sessions with a BACP-accredited supervisor to ensure consistently high standards of care. I also hold current enhanced DBS certificates which allow me to work with both minors and vulnerable adults.

I was extremely nervous the first time I met Raf as I had never had counselling before. However this soon subsided and I very quickly felt that he was someone I could explore issues with, feeling safe and understood. Rafael has a very professional approach and works hard to get to the bottom of issues and find realistic ways forward. Much appreciated!

I came to Raf with a challenging set of circumstances, particularly because of confidentiality arising from my own line of work. He was not fazed by this at all and immediately created an environment where I could still work through specific problems and develop insight in to my behaviour. The results have been thoroughly transformative and I have the greatest respect for Raf's ability and professionalism.

I had never really understood my emotions, often feeling that they were completely out of my control. Thanks to Raf I can now take responsibility for my own life and life experiences. I have grown in confidence both on a personal and professional level and am now a better husband, parent, friend and manager. I am not always the easiest person to be deal with, but Raf was patient and persistent, allowing me to take the time I needed.

Through my sessions with Raf I quickly realised that my childhood had actually been quite difficult and was ultimately affecting the way I felt towards others as an adult. I felt comfortable discussing aspects of my life that I have never revealed to anyone - a huge leap of faith for me. Raf has a very compassionate and caring approach and I felt supported every step of the way.

It has taken quite a few sessions, but Raf has really helped me to transform myself into a whole person again. Thanks to his patience, insight and guidance I can now see how and why I avoided emotional commitment. I now feel able to truly connect with others, not least my partner.

I am very pleased with the outcome from my counselling. It has allowed me to put an end to some very destructive behaviours and feel positive about the future. What I learned in my sessions with Raf will benefit me for the rest of my life.

When I met Raf I was experiencing severe work-related stress and could barely face going in to the office. I had started to panic about losing my job or being forced to take time off. Raf was incredibly intuitive, kind and supportive throughout the process and I now have a completely different perspective and ways in which I can tackle problems. Thank you for all your help!

I was initially very sceptical about counselling, but through Raf realised that it could offer me a 'safe' environment to really deal with many things which I could never talk to even my husband or best friends about. It has been a totally liberating experience and I would recommend Raf to anyone.

Working with Raf I felt I always had the option to talk or just to be silent. It was an enormous help to just be able to set my own pace and agenda, knowing that he would always create a constructive way of dealing with things as they came up. In only a few short months my outlook on life has changed.

I would like to thank Raf for his help. There was no one who I could talk to or who understood me. I was always scared of being a loner because of my thoughts and behaviour. Raf never judged me or made me feel I was a bad person, even when I got angry. I am getting closer to my dad again and at school things are getting a lot better.
