I am a BACP qualified and registered Counsellor with experience of helping people to explore their issues within a safe and non-judgemental environment.
I use an integrative approach which means that I draw from a range of psychological therapies as each individual has different experiences and needs. At the heart of this is a person-centred foundation as I believe each person is the best 'expert' of themselves and has the resources within themselves to resolve difficulties they are facing when provided with the right environment to explore them.
Some of the areas in which I have experience in include: Relationship issues, life transitions, self-esteem, identity, stress and depression, anxiety disorders, body image issues, and anger management. I have a particular interest and specialism in working with identity exploration and life transitions as well as the experience of pet bereavement.
I understand that making the decision to come for counselling can be a big step and finding the right counsellor for you is important. Please do get in touch via email,text or phone for an initial chat as this may help you decide if you would like to book a first appointment.
I am primarily based at Cotham Hill (just off Whiteladies Road), Westbury-on-Trym and Clifton Village but can also offer sessions in Bath centre and Southville.
