About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor & psychotherapist specialising in couples counselling, relationship issues and personal therapy. I offer courses of 6 sessions at a reduced fee for those on a low income. When I am able to work face-to-face the consultation rooms from which I practice are located in central Bristol. I have experience of working with a range of client issues having practised as a bereavement counsellor and supervisor, couples counsellor and alcohol & substance abuse counsellor. I have ten years experience as a Relate practitioner.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
