About me

In addition to my private practice, I'm also employed by a leading private hospital group where I work with clients in both one to one and group therapy sessions. I have a special interest in working with clients who are experiencing anxiety.

I use different approaches and techniques which will enable us to work collaboratively, helping you to explore and understand any difficulties you may have in a confidential, safe and non-judgmental way.

During an initial session, we will have the opportunity to talk about what brings you to counselling and how we may be able to work together. At this point, if you're happy to continue, we can arrange future sessions - you are under no obligation to go beyond the initial session if you choose not to. I offer short or longer-term counselling, depending on your needs.

I work with clients aged 18 and over from two settings, one on the Wraxall / Nailsea border and a second in Clevedon, very close to the town centre. Both locations are close to bus routes and have parking available nearby. Counselling sessions last for one hour and take place in a comfortable, private and dedicated space.

I qualified as a Counsellor in 2000 - my training was accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), the UK's largest counselling and regulatory body. As a registered member of the BACP (number 080785) I work within their Ethical Framework for the counselling professions.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Professional Studies - Counselling, University of the West of England (2000).

I've gained valuable experience in a variety of settings, including various charities.

I keep up to date with current counselling research and regularly undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) by attending workshops, lectures and seminars.

I have completed specific training in areas such as anxiety, depression, loss and change, low confidence and self-esteem, work-related stress, relationship difficulties, grief, anger management, eating disorders and self-harm.

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.
