About me

Hello, I am a registered accredited counsellor with the National counselling society. I regularly work with clients experiencing stress, anxiety or depression. I offer both short and long term counselling for individuals and groups. I use a relational approach as I believe that our relationships are important in the development of oneself, especially those relationships we form in early childhood.

There are times when we all need help with life's challenges. I can offer you a space to reflect and think in the hope that this will lead to better understanding, self-awareness and change. A lot of people I see have a feeling of getting stuck or going round in circles. Often immersed in difficult feelings including anxiety, stress, anger or depression. Counselling can be that space where concerns, difficulties and fears, can be explored and shared. An opportunity to unpick, uncover and repair issues/concerns.

Alongside my private practice I work as Head of Counselling at Kinergy managing a team of 27 volunteers and 5 staff. Kinergy is a counselling agency that supports survivors of sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse. I also work at the University of the West of England as an associate lecturer on the Diploma in Counselling course.
