About me

My approach is eclectic.  By that I mean I don't hold rigidly to any specific theory basis but instead I use my experience of you.

I work in an integrative and holistic way. Simply, Integrative means that I work with my intuition, body awareness and theory knowledge, to support you in finding your way through your difficulties and finding your own answers.

Humanistic means that my primary focus is on being with you, the client, as a human being, responding to what you uniquely bring, and supporting you to find a way forward.
This approach assists me with gaining an insight into your dilemma and how you deal with this.    

With a holistic view I am also interested in how our body energy could be affecting any health issue, I am mindful of the link between our mind and body.  Being spiritually awake and fascinated by people and their behaviour, I treat every human being individually.

I have experience with clients who wished to address issues in self-harm, suicidal thoughts, unresolved grief, addiction and 12 Step recovery, family difficulties, relationship issues, low self-esteem, anxiety, bereavement, loss, and trauma.

For a number of years I counselled adults with fertility loss and pregnancy issues at Hope's Place in Bristol
Depending on what you seek, I can provide short-term or long-term work.

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.
