About me

I work with both adults and young people from a bright studio room in Bradford on Avon where there is space to explore difficult areas of your life in a highly supportive and sensitive way and where I can help you grow an increasing sense of feeling and being 'ok' in yourself.

I work in an integrative way and see my clients as unique individuals whose needs vary and I strive to meet those needs from my knowledge, understanding and intuition as to how best to work with them.

There are times when counselling can make an enormous difference in our lives; being truly heard by another person who is accepting and empathic is a healing process in itself. Alongside this you will gain greater clarity and understanding of where changes could be made in your life.

Coupled with my therapeutic work, my background is also in the creative arts field and there are always art materials available for those who prefer to work in a visually expressive way.

Please refer to my website for more information.

There is free on-street parking right outside my studio and I offer weekday and evening appointments on Mondays and Tuesdays.
