I have a Diploma in Counselling from Bristol University and am a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I have been practicing for 20 years, working with individuals, couples and groups, covering a wide range of issues.
Life experiences can sometimes cause feelings of anxiety and distress, or a sense of loss of control of your life. Whatever difficulty you are facing, I offer a safe, confidential space in which to talk. My aim is to support you in building self empowerment, finding peace of mind and a direction forward.
If there are changes you want to make in your life, this is a good place to start.
I offer a free initial meeting either face to face or by phone, to talk about the kind of help you might want.
Counselling can be long or short term to suit your needs, either face to face or by phone.
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.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
