About Duncan

I am an experienced BACP-registered counsellor and psychotherapist. I have worked as a counsellor in the NHS and at Turning Point, which helps people with addictions. I work flexibly, using an integrative approach.. I have been in private practice for the past 6 years.

I work with adults from all different backgrounds and I have experience of working with ethnic and sexual minority groups on short and long-term contracts.

I work using an integrative approach combining the core therapies of person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) tailored to individual needs.

I provide a safe, empathic and non-judgemental space for you to explore your difficulties. I will not tell you what to do, but I will guide you to help you make the right choices in your life and to gain greater self-awareness.

I pride myself on my down-to-earth, honest and open approach.

At Turning Point, I worked with men and women of all ages with drug and alcohol addiction and the very complex and traumatic issues surrounding those addictions.

Currently, I’m a caseworker with SSAFA (the Armed Forces charity) providing support and advice to eligible individuals who are recognised as vulnerable adults requiring wellbeing and emotional support within the definitions of the Care Act 2014.
