About me and my therapy practiceI am a psychotherapist working with adults, children and young people in Bristol. I offer a confidential space to talk about the difficulties you might be experiencing and to explore the positive changes you can make. If you want to enhance your quality of life and important relationships, I'll be happy to meet with you and discuss how counselling or psychotherapy can help you achieve those goals.
Counselling and Psychotherapy for Individuals: People can feel overwhelmed in their life and seek support to help them to habitual and intrusive thoughts, feelings and behaviors that limit their joy of life. Such issues include: Depression, Anxiety, Drug and Alcohol addiction, Low Self-Esteem and Confidence, Family and Relationship difficulties, Confusion about sexual orientation, Bereavement Counselling and Psychotherapy for Individuals: People can feel overwhelmed in their life for many different reasons.
These issues can be explored and resolved in psychotherapy, which result in real changes in the individual's way of life, improved relationships and an ability to maintain joy in the face of current distresses.
Counselling for Couples: I have much experience working with couples, and I understand that the way people experience themselves in a relationship is often very different to how they feel when with friends and other family members.
This means that the counselling needs to be tailored to meet the needs of each individual in the relationship, as well as the needs of the relationship itself, so it can flourish and provide an environment where you can experience joy in life and in one another.
Children and Young People: I hold a Master's level postgraduate qualification in counselling children and young people. I have been working with Help Counselling!, a Bristol-based charity, which provides counselling and psychotherapy across the West Country. So I understand the challenges young people are facing in today's society.
Professional Standards: I work closely with clinical supervisors, and, when necessary, with other outside agencies, such as GP's, schools and local mental health professionals. I follow the codes of ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and am a Registered member.
