About me

I work in Downend, Bristol with children, young people and adults.  I specialise in emotional therapeutic counselling.

I trained in counselling with the Foundation for Emotional Therapeutic Counselling.  Their approach is to work with clients' feelings to develop a strengthened sense of self and resilience.  This way of working is effective with adults, young people and children.  It may involve the use of practical exercises or creative activities, depending on the client's needs and preferences.  The exact approach will depend on each client's individual situation.  It will always be accepting, non-judgemental and completely confidential.

Issues that I can help with include

  • self-esteem and confidence
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • relationships
  • anger
  • self-harm
  • bullying
  • addictions
  • eating disorders
  • exam stress

and the effects of any of these issues on family members
