My name is Henk.  I am a certified Counselling Professional and currently offer counselling online, over the phone and in person (see here).  Having received my training at Network Counselling and Training in Bristol, my theoretical approach is Person-Centred/Integrative (see ‘Way of Working’).  I help people identify the issues that are causing them distress by exploring what is going on for them at a deeper level. I take great pride in the progress and success of my clients, and look forward to helping you. Get in touch to learn more.

Me - July 2021_edited_edited.jpg

Are you feeling stuck with no way out?

Are you feeling too easily overwhelmed?

Does life feel like a deep, dark pit?

Or as if you're forever swimming with no land in sight?


Maybe you just want to understand whatever it is that is going on for you, 
or explore some of the bigger questions in life.

Am I the Right Counsellor for You?

“Should I choose a male or female counsellor?  An older or younger therapist?  Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, … or …??”  With so many different options it is only natural to feel at a loss when trying to find the ‘right’ person for you.  Research clearly suggests that a good relationship between you and your therapist is most important for a positive outcome, so it's important to listen to your instinct.  An initial free 30-minute consultation will provide you with the opportunity to do so and give you a glimpse of what working with me might be like.
