If you are reading this, then you have taken the first step in helping yourself to feel better. You may be looking for a counsellor to to help you make sense of your life, or yourself, and how you can move forward from your problems. You may be suffering with difficult and strong emotions about your personal life, work, school or college, and being able to talk to someone who is able to really listen and understand about how you are feeling can be so powerful. Counselling can be a way of helping you to start this journey of self-healing.
I realise it can be a daunting task knowing what you are looking for, and making sense of what is available. So what do I have to offer?
I am a fully qualified and trained counsellor, registered with the BACP. Abuse, depression, stress and anxiety, as well as eating disorders, family issues, low-confidence and low self -esteem are just some of the issues I have helped clients to deal with.
I offer a safe confidential space to talk about your problems, where you can feel you feel comfortable, knowing that you are being listened to and not judged.
My work takes place in a comfortable and peaceful room in Bishop Sutton in the heart of the Chew Valley, with good parking facilities.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling

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.

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.
