About me

I've been working with people face to face - in groups and individually - for twenty three years. My background was in the music and film business. Because of my history, and my somewhat avant-garde approach, I tend to attract a client base of creatives, and certainly I see unlocking creativity as being at the heart of the work. I have a high level of experience of working with sex and sexuality, mens' issues, anger, relationships and communication skills, and career coaching.

I work in a warehouse in Seven Sisters in North London and as well as seeing people individually I have a very successful Men’s Group Program that’s been running for over ten years. I also run Creative Work Support Groups and for the really out there amongst you I run Vision Quest Retreats in Nepal.

I’m 53 years old, I have two children, eleven guitars and a 1915 Gibson mandolin.

“Working out of instinct, feeling and the heart Jerry doesn’t analyse me, he experiences me. Jerry seems to work out of the space where he really wants to be, interacting with people that he likes and believes he can help. That may seem selfish but a good therapist has to look after themselves first and foremost and Jerry’s genuine interest in and love for the people he works with is clear. He is sensitive and deeply caring but is always ready to challenge and disrupt, helping prompt the chaos or revelation that allows me to grow.

Robin, Investment Manager
“I worked with Jerry for almost 6 years. Whilst I came to value him as a friend, his professional know-how ensured that our sessions were at times extremely challenging; if they hadn’t been, I wouldn’t have confronted some very difficult truths. I never doubted his support and came to trust him implicitly. Jerry finds a perfect balance between deep compassion and professional distance. He is terribly clever but never pompous, and introduces humour with impeccable timing. For anyone looking for an intuitive and interactive style of “therapy”, Jerry is the one. He brings you to the nub of the matter gently, but with assurance.”

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
