About me

BACP_53038_1.pngI am an Integrative Counsellor and I work with individuals and couples.

My work is based in Person-Centred counselling, drawing on other approaches (Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt) to inform my work. I acknowledge that each individual has a unique perspective on life and I tailor my approach to fit the needs of each person I work with.

I offer a safe, supportive, friendly and confidential space to explore your feelings and what is going on for you. A space to express yourself in the knowledge that I will not judge you - I will accept you as you are. I provide a warm and compassionate approach and I aim to build and nurture a relationship of trust and honesty to enable you to gain a sense of choice in your life.

I believe that everyone has the ability to make changes in their lives and their thinking and, with support, can work towards a more contented and happy way of being. I am constantly in awe of the transformation that people can make through counselling and I feel privileged to be able to be a part of it.

Location

My counselling room is in St. George, Bristol BS5.

I also offer online counselling via Skype.
