However stuck you might feel right now - that is where we start.

I am a Registered Counselling Psychologist. You are welcome to contact me to discuss your needs. This is a free and no obligation opportunity for you to speak with me and decide if I am a good fit for you. It also helps me to know whether I can be of genuine assistance to you.

My Approach

I work collaboratively with you so that we journey together through whatever difficulties you may be experiencing. I use a range of different therapeutic approaches to meet your particular needs and preferred ways of working, including: narrative therapy, person centred counselling, emotion focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, compassion focussed therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness practices. As a trained meditation teacher it is natural for me to blend mindfulness and self-compassion into treatment when that is desired by my clients.

About Counselling Psychology

Counselling psychologists engage with the client’s unique experience to empower them in their recovery and in living their lives to the full. It is rooted in humanistic, critical and existential-phenomenological psychologies, in which the process of understanding and meaning making is central. The focus is on engaging with the client's experience, values and beliefs. Counselling psychologists work with clients to weave together psychological formulations that are uniquely tailored to each client.

"Working with Rodger is like having a basket full of tangled ribbons that one by one are gently untangled, straightened and made sense of."


Through counselling psychology, advocacy and coaching roles I have accumulated over 35 years of experience helping people struggling to cope in their personal and working lives, often in intense and pressured situations. This journey has included working within a multi-disciplinary public health team, working within a university counselling service, and helping people through challenging employment issues. I have also worked with people engaging in transformative personal journeys. Working across different disciplines has helped me to think fluidly and flexibly.
