I run a private practice - working in and around Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
My approach to counselling is eclectic, but I find I work mainly within the Person Centred/Humanistic approach, I tailor my approach to meet the individual needs of each client.
I carry out home visits where appropriate and I have use of consulting rooms in both Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol. Thornbury, South Gloucestershire and Shirehampton, Bristol - there is ample parking near each location and they are all on regular bus routes.
As I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I work to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I am also on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
