About me

I have a successful private practice in Backwell, North Somerset, where I see adults, couples and young people. As a qualified NCS Supervisor I am also able to offer supervision to professionals.

I often work with clients who have experienced complex trauma and adversity in childhood

I work relationally as an integrative and humanistic counsellor. Together we agree on our shared way of working which will enable you to get the most out of your counselling sessions and to develop skills and reflections that you can take beyond the therapy room.

I totally believe in recovery and in your ability to find your own ways forward with therapeutic support. As a qualified therapist I work alongside you to increase your felt sense of safety, your ability to emotionally self regulate and find personal stability so that you can explore whatever you wish to work on.

I've worked with children and young people for over 25 years as both an educator and a therapist. In the last 10 years I have increased my counselling offer to adults and am also qualified to work with couples.

I also deliver training on trauma and emotional regulation and provide 1-1 support, supervision and counselling to adults who support children in their professional and personal lives. I also facilitate personal and professional development sessions for groups.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited member of the BACP and NCS and have a first class honours degree (BSc) in counselling and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.

I am an advanced COSRT trained couples counsellor and have extensive post degree training in trauma therapy, attachment, dissociation and somatic emotional regulation.

I am experienced at therapeutically holding clients safely as they explore aspects of their lives. I work with clients across a wide range of presenting issues. I often work with clients who have experienced complex and developmental traumas in their lives. Likewise I can also work short term with clients to support them with specific events and issues that they maybe experiencing.
