About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor, based in Clevedon.

I specialise in obsessive compulsive behaviours including repetitive negative relationship patterns and co-dependency; drug and alcohol use; self harm; plus experiences of abuse; grief and loss; relationship breakdown; low self esteem and depression.

I am friendly and non judgemental, and can offer a safe space for you to explore your difficulties and learn more about yourself.

I am a Person Centred counsellor, but draw upon other counselling modalities, such as CBT, Gestault and Psychodynamic approaches in order to help you to look at how your past experiences may be affecting your choices and behaviours, support you to gain a greater understanding of yourself, whilst empowering you to make positive choices for your future.

Call to make an appointment for an informal chat. This first half hour session is free of charge. Following sessions (of 1 hour) are charged at £40 per hour.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BSc Psychology
  • FdSc Counselling
  • MBACP

I have many years experience working with adults, young people and families; as well as working as a counselling psychotherapist at residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. This has been a rich training ground for supporting individuals to discover the 'whys' of addiction - for example low self worth, grief or childhood abuse and abandonment; and exploring the many ways that past hurts can manifest themselves in various 'fixing yourself' behaviours (spending, over eating, sex, romance addiction, affairs, internet addiction, self harm; as well as anger and depression).

I have worked in both 12-step and self empowerment facilities, and can provide useful and practical theoretical tools and homework for between sessions if required.

My particular area of interest is relationship difficulties and co-dependency.
