Tony Ford Practice Manager


I am fully qualified BACP Accredited Humanistic Counsellor, Thought Field Therapist and Rioho Master Reiki Practitioner. My training, alongside my personal journey, has been extensive. Within this rewarding journey I have experienced and studied various Psychological interventions, and holistic, healing methods. In my line of work I draw on those methods which are in keeping with my own belief.

"The belief in the innate capabilities of every individual to achieve what is the best for them, if they are able to understand themselves and their environment."


For the last 14 years I have worked with Children and Adults in one to one and groups in various capacities: privately, working for the NHS, EAP's and voluntary sector.
