About me

I offer counselling offer based on respect for you, working at the right pace for you, in the right way for you. I see adults and young people as clients. I am fully qualified, (level 6 diploma, accredited by the BACP, Certificate in COunselling Children and Adolescents). BACP registered member. Fully insured. Over 15 years of DBS / CRB (police) checks.

I am an "Integrative" counsellor. This means I use the best mix of several theories to suit each individual client. (Person Centred, Gestalt and Psychodynamic). I have an interest in Carl Jung and am very pleased to help you explore the "bigger questions" in life, if appropriate. I am equally happy to work on resolving daily personal issues - relationships, stress and anxiety, grief and many other issues. Having been a meditation teacher I can support you in exploring or extending your mindfulness / awareness practice.

ASD / Aspergers: Over the years I have worked with many people of all ages with Aspergers and am currently a Specialist Mentor for students with ASD at the University of Bath. I have additional training in this area and always enjoy working with ASD clients and their families.

Please see below for other issues I counsel around - these include anxiety, relationship issues, depression.

Please do contact me if you have a specific issue I have not mentioned.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Life stage issues (mid life, transition from adolescence to adulthood), questioning faith. CFS. Experience of working with Aspergers (children and adults).


I work in Yate, near Chipping Sodbury and have had clients from a wide radius around the area, from Bristol to Gloucestershire.

My session cost is £35 per 50-55 min session, for all age groups.

This applies to face-to-face and Skype counselling.

I do have some lower cost places available, so if you feel you'd like to work with me but find this fee difficult do get in touch and we can discuss - I believe everyone should have access to professional therapy.

I also provide one lower cost place for a counselling student. Call for further details.

Further information

I work from a pleasant, quiet, discreet room in Yate which has plenty of offroad parking and easy access (one step). Yate is near Chipping Sodbury.
