I am an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor working in private practice in Bristol. I offer discreet one to one, long or short-term counselling in a calm and peaceful environment in consulting rooms in a central location. I work with adolescents including university students and adults of all ages.
I have experience with depression and anxiety, relationship difficulties, addictions including drugs, alcohol, prescription medications, eating disorders, gambling, sex addiction, shopping and compulsive behaviours and processes. I also offer support and counselling for grief, loss and bereavement.
During our work together, it would be my goal that we could explore making life more meaningful, substantial and satisfying, enhancing existing relationships and paving the way for new and interesting developments in life.
I am also a certified Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teacher and have a passionate interest in mental, physical and overall health. I also work with art - using genograms, bodymaps, timelines and anything else that you wish to explore.
I am registered with BACP and adhere to and uphold their guidelines for ethical practice. For more information about this please contact The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy at bacp.co.uk.

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.
