About me


I will help you with your problems in a warm, open minded and non-judgmental way.  I am fully qualified, experienced and accredited.  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 also offer Zoom sessions.    I use both Integrative counselling, and cognitive behavioural therapy to enable you to explore your feelings and find ways to solve your problems.

My work starts with a warm, non-judgmental, person-centred approach.  I use interventions 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, relationship problems, trauma and long covid.

Member organisations

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.
