I'm aware that looking for and choosing a therapist can be scary and overwhelming, so if you have any questions at all I haven't answered below, please feel free to contact me with no obligations.
I am a BACP registered Psychotherapist, working with an integrative model. This means that I have knowledge of different techniques and theory to use to help you in therapy.I chose to train in this model because I believe that the more I know, the more I can help you. Being a member of the BACP means I am upheld by their requirements and standards, but most importantly their Ethical Code. I chose to become a counsellor because I wanted to help people, and know from my own experience of therapy how supportive and empowering it can be.
I work with a range of problems, including but not limited to:
- bereavement and loss
- Pre and post natal anxiety,
- Adult children of Narcissistic Parents
to mention just a few. I also have experience and knowledge of Autism, and welcome clients on the Autistic Spectrum.
My work experience is quite varied, having worked with clients who've suffered with sexual abuse, as well as working with staff in the NHS, who came with a wide variety of challenges and problems.
My Bristol therapy room is in Westbury-on-Trym, on the High Street, with parking outside, and my Monmouth therapy room is above the shoe shop Envee, which is accessible from the back next to the Waitrose car park. I aim to create a safe and non judgemental space where you can explore the things that are challenging you, helping you find a new perspective and self-awareness, which in turn may offer you resolution and peace.
Usually I will see clients weekly for anything from 6 weeks to ongoing long term therapy. In the first session we will talk about the therapeutic contract, which is in place to keep you and I safe, and what you would like to gain from therapy. Everything is open to discussion, and there's no obligation to continue seeing me after the first session if you don't think it's the right fit for you.
To book an appointment, please call me on 07766 754824, or email me through the contact form, for an informal chat to see if I can help you with your aims for therapy.
