About me

Where do the sessions take place?
I offer counselling to individuals in BS4, and in the comfort of their own home in the Bristol area.

What can I help you with?
I work with an extensive variety of issues including:

  • relationship issues
  • low self-esteem
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • loss
  • bereavement
  • dealing with difficult feelings and emotions
  • I also have experience of working with domestic abuse.

I believe the quality of the relationship is an important aspect of counselling, by providing the core conditions of empathy, unconditional positive regard and congruence in a safe, confidential space allows the client to explore their issues and challenges at their own pace.

What is counselling?
Counselling offers you somewhere to be yourself outside of your regular life to connect to what is going on for you emotionally.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor working from a person centred core, enabling me to draw from a variety of humanistic approaches including CBT, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt. I customise my way of working according to the needs of the individual.

  • I have a certificate in Counselling skills.
  • I have an FDSC in Counselling.
  • I have a wide range of experience of working with domestic abuse.
  • I have been working for a counselling organisation for two years and have worked with a variety of issues.

As part of my training I have had my own personal therapy, so can understand how it is to enter into counselling.
