I offer personal and relationship counselling to individuals and couples in my private practice in Bristol. I have previously worked as a relationship counsellor for Relate from 2008 to 2019, and as an academic supervisor at the University of the West of England from 2009 to 2018. As an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) I adhere to their code of ethics.
My approach is to help you make sense of the impact of past experiences on current problems, and also to focus on making positive changes in the here and now. Drawing on a range of theories and techniques, I work flexibly and creatively so that I can respond to your individual needs and wishes.
With many years’ experience, I have helped individuals, couples and young people work through issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship problems, communication difficulties, parenting, separation, intimacy, loss and grief, work-related pressures and problems at school or college.
