About me

About Me

I am a psychotherapist working with adults, children and young people in Bristol. I offer a confidential space to talk about the difficulties you might be experiencing and to explore the positive changes you can make. If you want to enhance your quality of life and important relationships, I'll be happy to meet with you and discuss how counselling or psychotherapy can help you achieve those goals.

Counselling and Psychotherapy for Individuals

People can feel overwhelmed in there life for many different reasons. My clients are often experiencing crisis in their life and seek support to help them to habitual and intrusive thoughts, feelings and behaviours that limit their joy of life. Such issues include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Drug and Alcohol addiction
  • Low Self-Esteem and Confidence
  • Family and Relationship difficulties
  • Confusion about sexual orientation
  • Bereavement
  • Self-Harm
  • Suicidal Ideation

These issues can be explored and resolved in psychotherapy, which result in real changes in the individual's way of life, improved relationships and an ability to maintain joy in the face of current problems and pressures.

Counselling for Couples

I have much experience working with couples, and I understand that the way people experience themselves in a relationship is often very different to how they feel when with friends and other family members.

This means that the counselling needs to be tailored to meet the needs of each individual in the relationship, as well as the needs of the relationship itself, so it can flourish and provide an environment where you can experience joy in life and in one another.

Children and Young People

I hold a Master's level postgraduate qualification in counselling children and young people. I have been working with Help Counselling!, a Bristol-based charity, which provides counselling and psychotherapy across the West Country. So I understand the challenges young people are facing in today's society. I have also been providing Art Therapy in a Primary school setting for the last two years.

Professional Standards

I work closely with clinical supervisors, and, when necessary, with other outside agencies, such as GP's, schools and local mental health professionals. I always consult with clients and work with them when advocating on their behalf to outside agencies. I follow the codes of ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and am a Registered member.

Member organisations


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.
