I am a qualified psychotherapist registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I offer individual psychotherapy and counselling sessions from consulting rooms located at 11 Orchard Street, Central Bristol. I offer both long and short term work.
Please note that I am currently offering online sessions via zoom during covid -19 pandemic.
I have long experience of working within the NHS and charitable organisations working with individuals with serious health concerns, emotional trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and relationship difficulties. I have extensive experience of working with individuals and families affected by life-threatening illness, loss and bereavement, including Covid-19 related deaths.
My approach draws from both Humanistic and Psychodynamic traditions. I believe that the therapy relationship can offer a safe and creative space in which it can become possible to understand more about the influences that have shaped us and the effects that they continue to have upon our thoughts, feelings, our health, general well-being and our relationships with others.
Individual psychotherapy and counselling can provide a valuable opportunity to take time out to reflect upon your life and relationships and can offer a chance to reconnect with who you are and to gain clarity on what is important to you.
If you would like any further information or have any questions or would like to arrange for an initial session, please feel free to give me a call or send me an email.
