No one should live in fear of abuse. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space where you can begin to explore what is going on, what has happened and how you feel about it. Importantly it is a space to be heard and believed.

It is important to acknowledge that domestic abuse can affect individuals from any social, geographic or cultural group, and victims of domestic abuse can be of any age, class, race or religion, male or female.…

I’m Kieran and I work with men that want to feel better, happier and have confidence in where their life is going.  I don’t pass judgement on what you have done (or what you haven’t done) and I work with you to get to where you want to be in life.

As men, it can be really hard to open up about “personal problems”, especially when we’re constantly told to “man up” and “get on with it”.…

Everyone needs support from time to time.  What some might consider day to day issues gradually or suddenly feel like much more.

Not quite feeling right but not sure why.  Life feeling harder than it normally does.  Maybe something significant or traumatic has happened in your life and you can’t quite come to terms with it, or work out how you can learn to cope with it.…

I am committed to working with people who want to bring more awareness to their lives or who want to make a change to their lives. I see us as beings of consciousness who are experiencing themselves in bodies and trying to make sense of the whole thing.

I also see us as beings who are deeply interconnected, with way more similarities than actual differences, even though we tend to see ourselves as separate and become preoccupied with differences to the point of excluding others and isolating ourselves.…

People can go through difficult times in their life which can give a feeling of anxiety, depression, being overwhelmed, feeling sad or low mood. These feelings can be due to many different reasons and we can feel that no-one fully understands us; family and friends can be helpful but they can sometimes be too emotionally involved to help us gain a clear view of what is troubling us.…

Counselling is my passion,  if you are spiritual you could think of it as my calling, a chance to be part of something that is truly life-changing for my clients; it allows me to watch them discover their worth when they were convinced they had none and then see them living a more fulfilling life.

If you have been abused or falsely accused of a heinous act then it is likely your sense of worth is at an all time low coupled with which are the stigmas and cultural values that you carry around because you are a man. …

When you’ve been on the receiving end of domestic abuse or a false accusation everything changes.  Your perception of your self and everything and everyone around you can become something quite unrecognisable.  Anger, betrayal, humiliation, shame, loss, confusion, anxiety, and depression are all not uncommon responses to what has been happening.  There is someone who will listen, will hear you, will believe you.…

Domestic abuse, in addition to being a distressing and traumatic experience, brings so many issues and questions. You may be feeling angry, ashamed, unheard, confused or a combination of these. In addition, as a man, it is harder to ask for help because we are conditioned to be the strong ones, to hide our feelings and ‘stand on our own two feet’.…

I promise to not just listen but to hear you. I also promise to walk alongside you.
