'The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination'. Carl Rogers.
People use Counselling for many different reasons. A relationship between two people concentrating on what is going on and exploring options can be a way to move forwards.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means I am able to use several different counselling approaches. At the heart of everything we do, is you, so whatever is feeling useful for you we will work with. Some people know what they want to gain from counselling, others need time to work out what is happening.
I can offer both long and short term work and have experience in working with individuals in a wide range of topics.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a FdSc through the University of Gloucester and along side private practice I also volunteer for 'Vine Counselling' a small charity just outside of Bristol that offer low cost counselling. I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and the CAPPP (Counsellors and Psychotherapists in Private Practice) Both organisations are providers of up to date information and guidelines for therapeutic practice.
