About me

One to one and group sessions in Southville, a short walk from Bristol city centre. My approach is warm, compassionate and robust. Initial session is free. Evening and daytime appointments. Tel: 07949 029648.

Acceptance is so important. We live in a culture focussed on striving to get things right and meeting standards and deadlines. Other needs like those for connection, support and listening are often left out; leading us vulnerable to distress, anxiety and depression. We need an anitidote, and I provide this in the counselling sessions I offer.

I offer a warm and receptive presence and will meet you where you are, beyond wrong and right. In this place maybe you already know the answers to your questions and know the action you need to take. I will help you to access this deeper knowing and, when you are ready, to translate it into action in your everyday life.

You can expect to be taken seriously, to be appreciated just as you are, but also to be challenged as I help you become aware of areas in yourself you might struggle to accept. Above all I provide a space in which you can just be who you are in the moment, a time when you don't have to try but can relax into yourself. From this place real change happens.

I am particularly skilled in working with people who:

Are anxious, feel shaky, spaced out or numb,
Have lost interest in things that used to give their life meaning,
Are particularly sensitive to the environment (noise, criticism, food, 'busyness'),
Are interested in restoring a connection to the natural world,
Enjoy using their imagination (whether this is expressed through a practice like gardening, childrearing, or art, or whether this is simply wished for).

I commonly work with:
relationship issues
generalised anxiety
people going through divorce or separation
instances where there has been an affair or a betrayal
family issues
panic disorder

I also specialise in working with people who suffer with psychotic-type experiences such as hallucinations, unusual beliefs, fragmented thinking. Often people will be diagnosed with something like schizophrenia or depression with psychosis, but not necessarily.

If you feel you like the sound of what I offer the best thing to do is to book an initial session with me, free of charge. This will be a chance for us to meet each other and discover whether working together will meet your needs.
