About me

ONLINE SESSIONS ARE GO!

In response to current governmental instruction, we have decided to temporarily switch all face-to-face sessions to Skype with immediate effect. Skype sessions work really well and can take place at your home; a great advantage during this period of enforced isolation. Skype is free and easy to download via the following link https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/

Simply find a quiet and confidential space at home for your session and you're good to go! Your garden or your car can work as great alternatives if there are no quiet or confidential spaces within your home.

These are extraordinary times and online therapy will help us to help you through. I therefore ask that you embrace this opportunity and dive into therapy via Skype!

I have over ten years experience in the field of general practice, and have also worked as an addictive behaviour specialist in both residential and community settings with individuals, couples and families.

I am trained to work with people in an integrative manner and have a Master of Arts Degree and Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Wales. This means that I am qualified to use a variety of therapeutic approaches and can tailor my work to meet the needs of each individual client. This is crucial, as I believe that every client has the innate capacity to make their life better; my job is just to help people relocate that spark. My aim is to make counselling a positive and optimistic experience; a case of making life even better rather than fixing what is wrong.

I specialise in the field of addictive and compulsive behaviours and am passionate about helping people to understand and experience recovery from such difficulties. These problematic behaviours can involve alcohol, drugs, food, OCD behaviours or self-harm to name some examples. I have written research papers in this area and work alongside governmental agencies to better understand and address such difficulties on a local level.

Please take a look at my recent therapy and training testimonials at www.stephengthomas.com. These should give you an idea of how I work and my exciting and optimistic approach to therapy.

As an integral part of my practice, I also provide therapy sessions to counselling/psychotherapy students-in-training. I also provide supervision for practising counsellors and psychotherapists as part of their CPD requirement. Please get in touch for more details.
