About me

How Counselling Can Help:

Hello, I am an integrative counsellor in the Bristol / South Gloucestershire area. I work with an array of different needs, working with individuals to provide relief from many different presenting issues such as - 


-Anxiety and panic attacks

- PTSD  

- OCD 

- Sadness and low mood

- Relational issues

-Trauma and abuse

- Grief and loss

- Burnout and work based stress

- Social withdrawal and anxiety. 

- I have lived experience and work with clients exploring racial identity and LGBTQIA+ / GSRD topics. I also work with Talk To The Rainbow with LGBTQIA+ / GSRD identifying individuals. 

How I work: 

I work in an integrative way, which means that I work in a bespoke, holistic manner, using the modalities and theories that fit with your needs. These theories may include techniques such as CBT, Person-centred therapy, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis, although I feel that it's the therapeutic relationship that is most important. 

I aim to provide a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore what's going on for you, build self-awareness and understand yourself better. We may make links to the past, looking at how this affects patterns and behaviour today as it is the here and now that I find beneficial to create real, lasting change. 

How to get in contact:

Making the decision to begin therapy is a brave and courageous step. Please reach out by telephone or email if you'd like to enquire. I usually offer a free initial 15 minute consultation so we can discuss what brings you to counselling, you can bring any concerns and we can see how we work together and if you'd like to go ahead with more sessions. Due to the Covid19 situation, I am currently  offering sessions either online via Zoom nationally as well as face to face locally.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
