I currently practice at Engage Therapy CIC in Bristol and have a successful private practice in Backwell,North Somerset, where I see adults,couples and young people.
I've worked with children and young people for over 20 years as both an educator and a therapist.I also deliver training on trauma and emotional regulation and provide 1-1 support and counselling to adults who support children's in their professional and personal lives. I also facilitate personal and professional development sessions for groups.
As a counsellor,I work in a relational attachment based humanistic way using creativity,body awareness and emotional regulation techniques to support you in gaining skills which you can also use beyond the therapy room. I believe in recovery and in your ability to find your own ways forward with therapeutic support. As a qualified therapist,I work alongside you to increase your felt sense of safety, your ability to emotionally self regulate and find personal stability so that you can explore whatever you wish to work on.
