About William

I am an experienced counsellor, living in France and working online with clients from a range of intersectional backgrounds in the UK, Europe, and beyond.

My professional training draws upon two main traditions of psychotherapy: psychodynamic and humanistic. I am particularly interested in concepts such as early-life attachment and conditions of worth as a way of understanding present moment problems. My academic experience includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, existential and feminist/gender approaches to therapy. I aim to integrate these modalities to tailor how I work with each client.

I was drawn to the profession after working for a long time in careers that were seemingly ‘successful‘ but always unfulfilling.

It was not until I embarked upon my own long-term personal therapy and personal-development journey, that I realized how self-awareness, self-kindness, and self-respect could reshape my relationship with myself and the world around me.

Since qualifying as a therapist in London, I have taken a particular interest in how intersectional identity aspects – such as gender, sexuality, race, and class – are factors that require deeper thought within personal therapy.

Aside from my professional qualifications in therapeutic counselling, bereavement and online therapy, I have a first-class bachelors degree in Psychology and a master of social science degree in Gender Studies (specializing in intersectionality and change).

As a BACP Registered Member, I adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. This means that I ensure our work together is ethical, follows good practice, and focuses on your needs above all else.

My work online started long before COVID-19 restrictions made online therapy more commonplace, and acceptable. I see working online as a valid and essential way of delivering psychological support to people wherever they are.
