About me

I offer a warm and open space for you to explore what you need to. Whatever we discuss between us is confidential as outlined in the BACP Ethical framework for good practice. Further information about this can be found on the BACP website and will also be covered as part of our contracting process.

I invite you come for a free initial consultation if you are considering therapy to discuss if this is the right option for you.

My overall approach to therapy is Humanistic and most integral to my work with clients is Gestalt Therapy. However I am an integrative therapist, and often use elements and skills from a range of approaches such as Transactional Analysis, Person Centred, Existential Therapy and CBT. My whole approach is supported by Psychodynamic Theories of childhood, in particular Attachment Theory and Object Relations.

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor/ Psychotherapist and began my professional training in 1997. In 1998 I moved to Somerset and have lived here ever since. In 2002 I completed my initial counselling training and then worked for several years in the field of addiction. In 2010 I trained as a Gestalt Psychotherapist with CHPC in Devon. During my career I have worked in a variety of settings including further education, residential treatment for addiction, private practice, street agencies and drop in centres.

I have had many years’ experience of providing individual counselling and as a group facilitator, as well as training and delivering educational workshops and lectures. In my last employment I also represented the counselling department in the organisation’s clinical and integrated governance meetings. Having mentored and supported students in their university placements, I was motivated to begin training as a counselling supervisor with CSTD.  I am currently providing supervision to Counselling students in placement within a residential rehabilitation centre for addiction in Weston- Super- Mare. I will complete my Diploma in Supervision in 2017.

Throughout my career I have worked with a diverse range of clients, many with complex needs. Being an Accredited Member of the BACP I subscribe to their ethical framework and code of practice.
