About me

I provide relationship (couple) and individual counselling and psychotherapy.

You can expect to be listened to supportively, in an unbiased and non judgemental manner. The aim is to support not to fix. You set the focus and decide what to explore and your priorities and goals with guidance from me if wanted.

My work is to learn how to best support you and this is different and unique for every person. Therapy therapy is a process of collaborative exploration between the therapist and clients. This includes helping you to explore your thoughts and feelings and, importantly, you do not have to come with any clear understanding of your needs or goals. So you do not have to know why you are coming. It's enough if you know you need to talk, that you have significant worries, feel low, confused and maybe life is throwing too much at you.

Every person deserves to matter in this world and this means you deserve to think and care about yourself and to live with peace of mind, in relative harmony (conflict has to be managed not cured!) and with a sense of purpose.

I work with an attachment focus. Attachment theory was developed by John Bowlby. This works by enabling us to identify the ways in which your past experiences (and those of your family (intergenerational)) have impacted and shaped how you relate to others, including yourself. It tranlates into a very safe, secure, practical and compassionate way of working.

I work at the Practice Rooms in Westbury on Trym & Clifton Village, Bristol and at my home office in Portishead, N. Somerset and also offer skype and telephone sessions.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
