About me

Welcome... (ZOOM SESSIONS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE)

I will help you with your problems in a warm, open minded and non-judgmental way.  I am fully qualified and experienced.  Please feel free to e-mail or telephone me to ask any questions you may have.

My practice is based in South Gloucestershire (North Bristol).  I use both counselling, and cognitive behavioural therapy to enable you to explore your feelings and find ways to solve your problems.

You may wish to know a bit about how CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) works.  This therapy aims to help you find more helpful ways to cope with problems by uncovering unhelpful patterns of responding or relating.

My work starts with a warm, non-judgmental, person-centred approach.  I use CBT in a collaborative way, meaning you and I work together to improve your problems and quality of life.

I offer expertise and a safe and confidential place to find solutions and an understanding of your difficulties. My aim is to empower you to become your own therapist.

I have helped many people with a whole range of difficulties including specialist areas such as OCD, health anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, depression, low self-esteem, stress, chronic fatigue and work-related issues.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
