About me

Using a person-centred integrative therapeutic approach I work with people experiencing a range of problems, including anxiety, depression, personality disorders, grief, loss, relationship difficulties, trauma, eating disorders, PTSD and low self-confidence. I offer both short-term and long-term counselling.

My aim is to help you focus on your sense of self and well-being, supporting you to realise your full potential. I will help facilitate self-development by showing empathy, trying to see the world in the way you do, not judging you and being genuine in my dealings with you. I believe that you have within you the potential for growth and self-fulfilment.

Being an integrative practitioner means I will bring in ways of working from a variety of counselling approaches. Using my theoretical knowledge I will assess what methods are best suited to you, discuss my ideas with you and create a custom approach that best meets your requirements. Some of the approaches I work with include cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic theory, shell work, creative art work, existential theory, Transactional Analysis, guided imagery, empty chair work, relaxation exercises and guided meditation. I will talk to you about this in the introductory session and explain the process in more detail.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical framework.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Fees

  • Each 50 minute session costs £45.
  • I require 48 hours notice of cancellations. If 48 hours notice is not given I will have to charge you the full price of the missed session.
  • In order to provide clients with the optimum counselling experience, I do not overwork myself by taking on more clients than I can handle. I charge the rate per session mentioned above so I am able to run a successful business whilst seeing less clients in a week, this means for each session I am refreshed, engaged and fully present to be at my best for you.
  • All prices are for one to one sessions. Each session lasts for 50 minutes.
  • I do offer concessions to people in receipt of certain means tested benefits, please contact me for more information.

Further information

  • To see clients for counselling I rent therapy rooms from the Practice Rooms.
  • I can see clients in Clifton Bristol, Cotham Hill Bristol or Bath.
  • If you would prefer to have sessions in your own home I may be able to accommodate this dependant on public transport provision and distance, contact me and we can discuss the possibility. I am also available for sessions at weekends and evenings.
