About me

I work daytime, evenings, and Saturdays.

I'm an integrative therapist (humanistic / existential and psychoanalytic) also influenced by the cognitive awareness that comes through mindfulness. However, my practice is influenced just as much by my own lived experience and my doubts about the efficacy of the medical model in dealing with mental health issues.

I've been practising since 2011 and have considerable experience of working both long-term and short-term. In addition to my private practice I've worked in several agencies such as Bristol University, Bath University, and the Carers' Centre with a range of age groups from 18 to 88.

I have a broad spread of experience in dealing with many aspects of human distress and suffering including depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss, and problems in relationships. It may be that it's hard to be sure what the problem is: a loss of a sense of who are and what you want from life, or maybe just a feeling of meaninglessness and that something is missing.

It's never too late to come to therapy. You're never too old or too set-in-your-ways to change yourself and your experience of life. There are some very special moments in a person's life when they feel able to change. I believe that there are many more of these moments in therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been practising since 2011.  I'm a Registered Member of BACP and also Accredited - only one in four qualified counsellors are fully accredited.  This is widely regarded as indicating mature competence.

I'm also committed to ongoing learning and have attended numerous courses including studying for several years on a Masters programme in Psychotherapy.
