About me

I have an approachable and down-to-earth manner and my first aim is to put people at their ease. I am always happy to answer questions by phone or Email before you make a decision about booking an appointment.

I have a creative approach to therapy and I find that choosing the right way to help a person express themselves is a huge boost to the therapy. Some people respond well to traditional talking therapy, others find this blocks their feelings and can access their feelings better through writing, using photos or other creative means. I am able to offer both traditional and creative approaches depending on which works best for you.

I have comfortable consulting rooms in Clifton with on street parking outside and I have been offering video counselling for the past eight years for UK and international clients.

I have worked with clients from across the spectrum:

  • people who have suffered bereavement and are struggling to enjoy life again;
  • those who are in difficult relationships;
  • people dealing with a major life change, (divorce, parenthood, redundancy...);
  • clients who have a general sense of dissatisfaction or anxiety in their life;
  • those who have self-limiting coping mechanisms such as self-harm, eating disorders; anger management issues or addictions;
  • people who have a mental illness

I am a specialist in helping people to understand self-defeating behaviours, particularly self-harm and suicidality.


The first step is for me to understand the difficulties you are facing and for us to design a bespoke package that will address your needs. This can include:

  • Regular face to face psychotherapy
  • Time limited sessions (often 8-12 sessions)
  • Open-ended therapy
  • Telephone sessions
  • Regular reviews to ensure that your needs are being met

Once we have agreed how our sessions are to be structured I will begin to work with you to deepen our understanding of how you have arrived at this point in your life. We can then begin to negotiate the obstacles you face in order that you can begin to live a fuller life.

Experience
I have been working in Mental Health care for 25 years. I began my career working as a Psychiatric Nurse and I soon began to specialise in working with people who had suffered trauma, who would often self-harm to help them cope with the intolerable feelings they had been left with. After I helped to set up a specialist service for women who self-harm I began my psychotherapy training.

I have a busy family life and, like most, I have had my share of ups and downs. My personal history along with my professional experience gives me a breadth of knowledge about what makes people tick, and true compassion for the way we feel.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

Online sessions available. Some BSL but not fluent. Deaf aware.

Availability

I offer daytime and evening appointments Monday to Friday and occasionally at weekends. I can offer an initial appointment within two weeks and video appointments within seven days.
