About me

Hello, I’m Adrian and I am a counsellor working with adults in the North Somerset area. I currently offer appointments from my comfortable, private garden cabin in Nailsea, with free parking available on the road opposite. I can also work online or by phone.

From personal experience I understand that when we feel anxious, sad, low or when life is just difficult reaching out for support can be daunting. During such times I believe that working with a counsellor can be a deeply enriching and valuable experience.

For counselling to be it’s most effective I believe that the quality of the relationship between counsellor and client is at the heart of psychological healing and growth. Having a safe, non judgmental space to talk openly about your concerns is paramount, a place where you are truly heard and valued is a liberating experience. My aim is to create a warm, empathic space where you can begin to feel able to reflect on your situation, and together we can explore ways that could help you move forward and make any changes that you feel will be beneficial in your circumstances.
