I offer a talking therapy where I will listen to you and help you explore areas of your life that may be troubling you. Counselling provides time in your week where you can express and process difficult thoughts and emotions, helping you to gain clarity and allow feelings to be validated.
I am an integrative counsellor, my style of integration draws on humanistic and psychodynamic theory. Aside from the theory that informs my practice, I aim to meet you as an individual, where you feel listened to, understood and valued. I have experience working with:
- Trauma and abuse
- Low self worth
- Finding meaning in life
- Relationship issues
- Work related issues
- Self development
To get started please call or email and we can arrange an initial meeting, during our first meeting we can discuss what you would like to gain from counselling, it is also an opportunity for you to see if you feel comfortable working with me. After this meeting, if you would like to continue we will arrange further sessions that are typically help weekly.
Training, qualifications & experience
In 2005 I began to study for my BA (hon) Counselling and Society. Alongside my studies I started work as a youth worker where I had the opportunity to practically apply the skills I was developing. Later I began studying my BACP accredited Diploma in Integrative Counselling, graduating in 2014.
Whilst studying for my diploma, I worked in a therapeutic community, providing support for adolescent girls who had a history of extreme neglect, abuse and trauma. I also volunteered for the Southmead Project Bristol, counselling adult survivors of abuse.
Alongside my private practice, I now work part time for the Southmead Project as a paid member of staff. Within the project I work with clients who have trauma as a result of abuse and using drugs or alcohol problematically.
