About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.  If something in your life is causing you distress, whether it be a current situation or a past experience, I offer a safe and confidential space where you can begin to explore your feelings and thoughts, at your pace.  I aim to understand your world from your point of view by listening without judgement.  I bring warmth, patience and encouragement in order to support you, and to help you move forward.

I am a qualified counsellor and my approach is humanistic and integrative.  I offer both short and long-term counselling to individuals and I am able to offer sessions at Oldland Common on the outskirts of Bristol, as well as in the centre of Bath. I am usually able to offer either day or evening appointments. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such, I work within the organisation’s Ethical Framework.

My background is in training and development.  I worked for several large companies before running a training consultancy.  I first became interested in working therapeutically as a counsellor after completing a psychology degree.

I believe that the relationship between client and counsellor is crucial to the success of therapy.  I offer a reduced fee for the initial session in recognition of the importance for you in ensuring that I am the right counsellor for you, and that I am able to offer what you are seeking.

If you have questions, or are interested in coming to see me for counselling please contact me by email or phone.  If you leave a message I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I look forward to hearing from you.
