About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor practising in Bristol and Stroud, Gloucestershire. I am experienced in working with clients who bring a range of material including: anxiety and depression, relationship challenges, family matters, addictions, loss and grief, trauma, childhood struggles, low self-esteem and grappling with a desire for change and direction.

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP, Accred) and have undertaken 5 years of training at the Metanoia Institute in London. I have worked in clinical placements in Bristol and Gloucestershire and I currently work as an assessor and therapist at the Gloucestershire Counselling Service. I have experience of working in community settings in the mental health and statutory sectors, including the NHS. 

My approach is to work with what you bring. As an integrative practitioner, I will apply my skills and theoretical understanding in relational psychoanalysis, alongside contextual, transpersonal and humanistic influences in working alongside you.

Initially, I offer phone and/or email contact and welcome any questions you have. If we decide to proceed, an initial session will be arranged, lasting up to 1 hour and is charged at £45. This will give us an opportunity to meet each other and and reflect on how counselling can be of help to you. We can then decide to proceed to a weekly arrangement when a regular session day and time is set aside for you.

I work in an open-ended way, which means I do not limit the number of sessions offered and we can review the therapy as we go along. I also have experience of working on a shorter-term basis for a fixed number of sessions (usually between 6-12). 

Practice description

I run private practice in Bristol and Stroud from centrally located rooms with nearby parking and close to public transport links. 

I offer EAP (Employee Assistance) counselling through companies.

I work freelance as a student counsellor for a music college in Bristol, and as a therapist and assessor for Gloucestershire Counselling Service.

My first session

The initial session is designed to give both of us an opportunity to meet and reflect on whether counselling can be of use to you.
