About me

Currently accepting new clients.

I am a creative, boundaried counsellor based in Bristol, specialising in Transactional Analysis.

If you are seeking counselling, call me on the number provided so we can discuss what you need from counselling and what day and time of the week will work for both of us.

During our first session I will ask more questions than in subsequent sessions, so that I can understand your background and how to best help you. You are welcome to ask me questions, also. Once we are both ready we will establish a goal for counselling together so that we know what we are working towards.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started my training in 2010 in person-centered counselling. After I learned the basics I took an interest in, and then decided to specialise in Transactional Analysis. I attended The Link Centre to take the Diploma in Counselling course specialising in TA, and qualified in January 2022.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Barton Hill Settlement has wheelchair user access.
