About me

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I work from home in my garden room in the centre of Bristol, close to the BRI. I offer in person, online and telephone counselling. I currently have a few daytime spaces available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

I'm here to help you overcome issues around valuing yourself so that you have greater self-confidence, better well-being and a more positive outlook on your life using a variety of counselling approaches.

Please email if you would like a free introductory session. At the introductory session you'll be able to talk about what you want to get out of counselling. If you're happy to continue, we can arrange the day and time to meet weekly. I look forward to hearing from you.

I'm committed to offering a service which is welcoming to people from all backgrounds in a supportive and non-discriminatory way.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm a qualified integrative counsellor and trained at UWE and the University of South Wales. I'm a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). As well as private practice, I work as a volunteer counsellor at Newport Mind and worked for 2 years at Knowle West Health Association in Bristol. I have also worked for the past 12 years as a volunteer listener with Bristol Samaritans.

I have worked in previous jobs supporting students in universities in Birmingham and Reading followed by a number of secondary schools in Bristol.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
