About me and my therapy practice
Do you feel stuck, anxious or depressed? Is life very challenging right now? I offer a calm, welcoming and safe space to look at what is going on in your life in a non-judgemental, supportive way.
You may wish to make changes around a specific issue or relationship or maybe you want to understand yourself better and need someone to listen. I bring a warmth, curiosity and passion to my work but feel that humour is also important.
Who I work with
I work with adults aged 18 up and appreciate the impact of isolation, depression and feeling different to others. I have worked with students, pregnant women, mums, men, the elderly. I work with issues such as:
Depression, anxiety, OCD, panic attacks
Gender, Cultural difference
Addiction, (gambling/on line)
Abuse, self-harm, suicidal feelings
Attachment, family relations
Trauma and PTSD, often using bodywork.
Pre- and post-natal, mothers
I am particularly interested in working with attachment issues - how the care that we received as a child, or lack of it, impacts on us, and the expectation of men to be strong and unemotional .
Where I work and cost
I understand that it is daunting finding a counsellor so we can meet for an initial session to discuss what you are looking for. I work from Orchard Street in BS1.
