I am a fully qualified and UKCP accredited Psychotherapist based in North Bristol. There are many reasons why you may want to see me. Some sudden event may have thrown you into crisis and challenged your ability to cope. This might include, relationship issues; a loss/bereavement of some kind; or a change that has resulted in stress/anxiety and a feeling of being destabilised. Alternatively you may be suffering from a more general, on-going struggle to see any direction or purpose. A feeling of being disconnected from yourself and others and of there being very little enjoyment in your life.
I believe that there is real value in having someone who is impartial who can also provide a confidential space for open inquiry and the sharing of feelings. Someone who can simply be there to listen to you when you feel like things are getting too much but will also be there to challenge you and offer a new perspective when you feel ready for further exploration. This is what I aim to bring as a therapist in the hope that this will lead to a greater awareness of your own potential and the blocks that get in the way to achieve them.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy from the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC). As part of my training I spent two years participating in professional peer group supervision as well as conducting client work through the NHS. I have also been seeing clients as part of my own private practice since February 2014.
Prior to starting up in private practice, I spent many years working in the environmental sector for a range of charitable, private and public organisations. Although not directly related to the work I do now, I feel my diversity of experience gives me further insight into types of day to day challenges that some of my clients may face.
