Ron is a BACP accredited psychotherapist and BPC registered psychodynamic counsellor. He began his professional life in the field of social work in America, working in a variety of settings addressing issues of homelessness, coaching in relationship issues, and supporting children in care. Ron studied theology at Oxford University and worked for several years in church based roles which typically focused on individualised support and training others in pastoral care. He values his learning and experiences from these caring roles.
Ron saw the benefits of working at a deeper and more skilled level, and so trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy. His work is primarily focused on open-ended individual therapy, but Ron also teaches on topics related to emotional well-being for various organisations and training institutions. Ron conducts psychological assessments for dioceses within the Church of England and is a member of the Guildford diocesan counselling scheme. Ron is also a therapist with the ME Trust, providing therapy specifically related to the condition of ME/CFS and chronic pain. Based in the City of London, Ron often works with issues of stress, redundancy and other work-related problems. An additional area of focus has related to psychological addictions such as internet pornography.
Through his background, training and years of therapeutic work, Ron is experienced with a variety of mental health issues. Some come for psychotherapy because of a diagnosis, others come to understand and work through painful or confusing experiences happening currently or related to the past. Ron applies a psychodynamic framework within the therapeutic relationship, meaning that he considers how the past may be affecting the present and encourages the understanding of one’s own feelings and experiences for the purpose of personal growth.
