About Me

Hello! My name’s Simon. I’m originally from the UK but have lived and worked in Switzerland for over 22 years. My chosen vocation was teaching but what I believe to be my calling to provide help and support to others with the deeper issues of life, led me to train to become a psychological counsellor.

I am a UK trained to Master’s level, native English-speaking counsellor/therapist practising in Luzern and Zug or online with 4 years of clinical experience. I cater primarily to the ex-pat community, helping adolescents and adults with a number of life’s challenges and concerns, ranging from stress and anxiety, relational issues, depression, different forms of trauma, grief and loss to issues concerning self-esteem and overall identity.

I am also passionate about understanding and aiding others going through cultural adjustment. Living abroad as an expat for over 25 years, I know first-hand the difficulties faced by individuals and families adjusting to a new country and way of life.
