Ben works with individuals and couples, providing a safe and supportive space so that you feel heard, understood and safe to explore and express your feelings in confidence and without judgment, so together you can find a way to wellbeing, happiness and confidence.  He works collaboratively, adapting to your individual needs and personality to help you clarify what you want from counselling/therapy and indeed life, and how together to achieve that.  Ben uses Transactional Analysis (TA) to explore feelings, thoughts, behaviours, and relationship patterns in a way similar to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
