About me

Counselling can provide you with much needed clarity when life seems full up, with no room left to think. As a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist I provide you with a non-judgemental, safe and confidential space in which to explore issues that you are facing, to look more closely at the impact that these are having in your life and to begin to gain new perspectives.

As an integrative practitioner I am able to work flexibly with you, with my work being informed by different approaches including Gestalt, Person-centred, Psychodynamic and CBT. This means that I am able to work with you in a way that will best suit your individual needs. I offer both short-term (6-12 sessions) and longer term work, with regular reviews to see that we are still working towards your goals.

Issues I work with include lack of self-confidence, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, bereavement and loss, sexuality, gender and identity issues and traumatic events,

If you are having problems with low mood, social anxiety, worry, OCD or more generalised anxiety I also have specialist knowledge in working with adults and young people using low-intensity CBT. This can provide you, or your child, with the skills to challenge more negative ways of thinking and move forward with your goals.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked within the NHS counselling members of staff, as a Counsellor and Low-intensity CBT therapist at Off the Record and most recently as a Counsellor at a Sixth Form College in Bristol. I have also worked in private practice for over 8 years as a Life Coach with adults and young people.
