About me

I am a qualified counsellor, registered with BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and have been practicing for 20 years.

I believe that peace of mind and contentment stem from feeling confident about who you are.  Most of my work centres around unlearning negative thoughts and feelings which often become an automatic way of being.  My passion is about the development of self acceptance, confidence and freedom of choice in how we think and ultimately how we feel.

If you are feeling overwhelmed or unhappy by life experiences, or are anxious or depressed about aspects of your life, having somewhere to voice these feelings can help you build self confidence, self esteem and personal sense of wellbeing.

I offer a safe, supportive place to help you talk about any issues that are worrying you.  Whatever you are facing, this process can be liberating and empowering.

Each of us has our own unique sense of what is right for us and what is wrong.  To have peace of mind we need to feel that we are living in a way that reflects our own values and beliefs and that we can choose to make it happen.

I offer a free initial meeting to talk about the kind of support you need.

Counselling can be long or short term to suit your needs.

I work in the BS9 area of Bristol and my working hours are flexible, daytime and evening.

Please feel free to phone me if you would like to ask me any questions.
