About me

There are many reasons why people seek counselling, there is no right or wrong reason, they can bring whatever is troubling them and stopping them leading the life they wish to lead. They may not even be aware of what the cause of their unhappiness is, and what is not working for them.

Counselling provides an opportunity to share concerns with a skilled listener in a safe, non judgmental and confidential environment. Through exploring your experiences, past and present, you can gain an understanding of how these experiences are linked to your current behaviours and situation. This can help you to move forward to a space which feels more balanced, comfortable and healthy.

I am a relational and integrative counsellor this means I use a variety a theoretical models in my practice; Person Centered, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, Attachment, Transactional Analysis.  Working in this way gives me the tools to adapt the counselling session to meet the client's needs. I work respectfully with client's allowing them to set the pace of the work and their aim of counselling.

I currently have counselling rooms in Old Sodbury, near Yate, South Gloucestershire, where I work with adults, children and teenagers.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) adhering to the association's professional Code of Ethics and I have professional indemnity insurance.
