He believes that collaboration and development of the therapeutic realtionship are essential to good therapy. Oliver uses an intergrative approach of multiple therapies to ensure that your therapeutic experience is uniquely tailored to your own difficulties and strengths. He will work with empathy and flexibility to help you identify your own personal goals, make sense of your experiences, and work towards a more fulfilling life.

The main therapeautic approaches that Oliver draws upon are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Person-Centred Therapy (PCT) and Psychodynamic Therapy.


Oliver has extensive experience providing evidence-based therapy across a range of settings, including the NHS, charities and private practice. He has worked in both inpatient and outpatient care. Across these services he has seen individuals with a diverse range of difficulties ranging from complex and enduring mental health problems to those with acute life stresses.

The difficulties he has worked with include anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, addiction, bereavement, relationship difficulties, personality disorders, abuse, stress and loss of motivation”.

Oliver has a particular interest in improving access to psychological therapies, particularly for individuals from marginalised backgrounds, or for those who feel anxious about attending. He works hard to provide an inclusive and welcoming space.
