About me

I am an experienced integrative counsellor combining a person-centred approach with cognitive behavioural therapy tools.

I offer a safe, calm space to be listened to and heard, so that healing can take place.

I offer short or long term counselling with persons over 18 years old, where the emphasis is on valuing the relationship in counselling.

I have worked for many years in Health and Children's Centre settings and have a particular interest in early parenting matters and personal identity issues.

I also offer counselling for a wide range of life challenging issues which require support through the  adjustment process;  such as bereavement & loss (including pet bereavement), illness, family & relationship issues, low self-esteem, abuse in childhood, living with the effects of addiction, and other personal issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor: BA(Hons) DipCoun CQSW MBACP(Accred) bringing over 20 years experience in working as a social worker in a hospital context and then as a counsellor working with parents in children's centres in Bristol for 13 years.


I have recently qualified in relational supervision( Advanced Diploma) recognised by the National Counselling Society. I offer supervison to counsellors and other practitioners working in the caring professions, where emotional impact from the nature of the  work, can cause stress and potential for 'burn-out'. My supervision has an emphasis on being restorative and nurturing so that practitioners may feel valued personally and professionally whilst delivering counselling with emotional empathy in complex work and contexts. We work together to adopt a creative and individual approach to meet your own needs. Please contact me to discuss your needs before commiting to us working together.

I have a particular interest in early parenting issues and perinatal health and how individuals adjust to life changing events.
