About me and my therapy practice

Counselling and psychotherapy is about you: your concerns, and your wellbeing. We can talk about me, and what clients say about me later. But for now, let's establish how you can benefit from professional support......

Does any of this sound like you?

"I want to reduce stress"

"I feel anxious all the time"

"I wish I was more confident and less critical about myself "

"I want to feel optimistic instead of negative all the time"

...Or perhaps you want some direction in life, become more productive or improve your relationships.

Whether it’s anger, bereavement, bullying, life having no purpose, low-self esteem, the menopause, personal development, redundancy or retirement. Counselling can help.

So why not have a browse through my profile and website to see if I can help?

Practice description

I bring creativity, energy and enthusiasm to my work with clients. Health and Well-Being are life-long passions and so my personal mission is to empower clients, like you, to achieve their full potential and to live a fully creative and joyful life. My cutting-edge, results orientated, evidence-based approaches are tailored to your individual needs and involve working creatively on cognitive, physical and emotional levels.

I strongly believe that counselling should be available to the whole of society regardless of social class, so I offer some concessionary slots.

I have extensive experience in the personal development, mindfulness, pyschotherapy, CBT and counselling fields both online and person to person.

Besides private practices in Harley Street and Bristol, worked in a variety of other settings including Mind and a multicultural centre for the homeless.

In addition, I provided consultancy services for numerous organisations and delivered workshops and group therapy in numerous settings.

One of my passions is to make counselling accessible to the general public by tackling talking therapy myths and sharing psychological insights that support it. As a result, I sometimes speak about counselling, mindfulness or psychotherapy on BBC Radio Bristol, I was a Lecturer on a Counselling Diploma Course for a few years at a Bath Spa University Campus and have advised film Directors and scriptwriters on the authenticity of film narratives involving counselling & psychotherapy. For example, I worked with Film Director, Mike Leigh, on his film Another Year. More recently, I was a Counselling Professional at CPCAB, the largest specialist awarding body for counselling in the UK until June 2016.

My corporate experience includes senior management positions with an emphasis on the UK’s Social Inclusion and Poverty agenda, coaching, mentoring, health and well-being both domestically and internationally.

My first session

I generally suggest meeting for a first 50 minute consultation appointment with of course no need to proceed if you decide not to, or the option of returning for further 50 minute sessions.

The first session offers us both an opportunity to meet each other and assess how we might work together. You are not committing yourself to continuing with any further with counselling by attending an initial session. I will explain a little about counselling, and answer any questions you may have, as well as introducing you to the working agreement we will enter into if you decide to continue. You can talk about whatever you wish to, many people find it helpful to describe what has brought them to counselling, and what they hope to gain from the experience. You and I will then be able to decide if my Counselling and Psychotherapy practice is right for you
