Hello, my name is Tom and I set up New Horizon Counselling in 2018. I'm a BACP registered therapist, supervisor and tutor with over 7 years of extensive therapeutic experience. I have provided over 4500 hours of clinical Counselling and Psychotherapy to adult clients. 


I can offer a supportive, kind, non-judgemental space to help you explore whatever it is you are going through. You might be feeling anxious, depressed or stressed, going through life changes, struggling with relationships, self-worth, looking to explore yourself, your identity or even understand and change behaviours. Additionally, I specialise in working with the LGBTQIA+ community an area I am incredibly passionate about.

I am an encouraging therapist who also aims to challenge you. My ultimate goal is to work hard to help you work hard. I won't offer advice, but I will offer thoughts, ideas, and exercises to get you thinking not only in the sessions but between them too. I am here to support you as you work towards your therapeutic goals. My work is based mostly online.

Client Testimonials

"The old me would have written 'Thank you for changing my life' but I can now say 'Thank you for guiding and helping me to work out for myself why and how to change my own life'."

"Tom is a fantastic counsellor. I had tried counselling twice before but on both occasions it was unsuccessful; mainly as I did not connect with either counsellors. It was so different with Tom! he has a friendly welcoming style where I felt so comfortable talking about subjects that I had buried for years."

“I now have the confidence to follow my dreams and believe in myself.”

"Tom is amazing! He provided me with a safe space to talk without judgement and helped me find answers to my own problems. Thank you so much Tom"

"I would, without a doubt, fully recommend Tom for his expertise, ability to foster a comfortable environment and his friendly, yet professional nature." 

"Tom has provided me with an amazing counselling experience. Friendly, patient and knowledgeable, he has helped me bring myself to a place in life with confidence and clarity beyond what I'd ever had before. More importantly, I know the tools I'll use to keep it that way."

"Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place."

- Paulo Coelho
