About me

We all go through times in life when we feel anxious or sad. This can relate to our relationships or the way we think and feel about ourselves. When we feel overwhelmed by these feelings or they don't seem to go away it can help to talk to someone outside of our normal family or friendship group.

I am a BACP registered counsellor working with students and younger adults. I provide a safe, confidential space to explore your feelings and make sense of what is going on in your life.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor. This means I combine theories from a number of different approaches to counselling such as; Person-centered, Psychodynamic, and Gestalt. I don’t believe that there is a single approach that will work for all individuals in all situations. The therapy will evolve with the approach and pace that feels right for you.

I offer both short and long-term counselling. The sessions will take place at The Practice Rooms in Southville, Clifton or Westbury-on-Trym.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues such as; low self-esteem, relationships, anxiety, depression, grief, and loss.

As well as working as a counsellor, I am the Service Manager for a local mental health charity. I provide training and supervision to individuals, groups, and workplaces. Over the last 10 years, I have worked with adults and young people in various mental health and addiction services.

I am a BACP Registered Counsellor and therefore abide by their code of ethics and conduct. I undertake regular professional development and supervision.
