About me

I am a registered MBACP counsellor based in Bristol. Completing both a Counselling Psychology degree and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling, I hold over 5 years experience of working within mental health settings such as psychiatric hospitals and counselling charities.

I specialise in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and stress.
I provide bespoke confidential sessions tailored to your needs. When life can be chaotic and busy I provide a calm protected space to be heard, respected and valued. Explore your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgement and support your overall wellbeing.

I operate within the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
I hold both public liability and professional indemnity insurance.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. 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. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

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. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
