About me

A warm welcome to you.

I’m a qualified therapist involving Humanistic and integrative counselling. I have professional and personal experience working in and through Anxiety, Stress, Low Self-Esteem, Depression,  drug and alcohol addiction, issues around bullying, as well as PTSD and trauma. I also have experience working with those in Nerd/Geek and Alternative Culture.

I feel it is vital that we work together in establishing a supportive and empathic relationship, through building trust and both of us creating a space in which you can explore and grow.

I believe that therapy can be the excavation of ourselves, that it can be as rewarding as it can be painful. Because of this, I feel it is essential you are treated with care, respect and move at a pace with which you are comfortable. However, I also feel it is important that we both be involved with what you bring, for you at times to be challenged and be willing to focus on the work.

If you feel that it is time to begin or continue with counselling and think that I would be a good fit for you, then you can give me a call or send me an email, and we can arrange an initial session. When we meet for the first time, it will be an opportunity to get to know each other, and we can discuss what it is you would like to bring to therapy and what you would like to achieve. Then if you decide to continue, we can agree on a regular weekly slot.

I work both fixed, short, or long term and open-ended.

I work online and one on one.

I practice by the BACP ethical framework.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a level 5 professional diploma in humanistic and integrative counselling from the City of Bristol College as well as further training in Addiction, co-dependency, motivational speaking, shame, and grief & loss.

I have experience working in and through anxiety, chronic or generalised anxiety disorder, stress, low self-esteem, depression, phobias and addiction. I also have experience working with vulnerable people, people who have suffered emotional, physical and sexual abuse, eating disorders, addictions to alcohol, drugs and prescription medications, compulsive behaviours and processes.

I have experience addressing various issues such as domestic violence, bullying, relational issues, and working with clients who have experienced emotional trauma.

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.

Accessibility

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.
