About me and my therapy practice

NB: I am working in person and on-line. Daytime spaces available. 

Do you feel stuck, anxious or depressed? Is life challenging? I offer a welcoming space to look at what is going on in your life.

I am calm and compassionate and help clients to look at long-standing behaviour that is no longer helpful, your upbringing or past trauma. Or you may wish to look at a current specific issue or relationship. Perhaps you simply wish to understand yourself better. I will work with you at your pace. I bring a warmth and curiosity 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. I have worked with issues such as:

Depression, anxiety, panic attacks
Relationship issues
Cultural difference
Addiction, (esp. gambling)
Abuse, self-harm, suicidal feelings
Attachment, family relations
Trauma, often using bodywork.
Men's issues
Mid-life
Chronic pain and health anxiety
ADHD in adults
Psychiatric conditions - psychosis, etc. 

I am interested in exploring how the care that we received as a child, or lack of it (for example with narcissistic parents) impacts on us, and also the expectation of men to be strong and unemotional. I work increasingly with neurodiversity in adults, especially how ADHD manifests in and affects women.

Where I work and cost

I understand that it is daunting finding a counsellor so we can meet for an initial session without commitment. I work in Alma Road BS8.

Other Information About Me

I work partly on a psychiatric ward. I have worked in a university student counselling service and an agency for gambling addiction. I teach mindful yoga.

I abide by the BACP's ethical values. I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from University of the West of England.

My first session

I offer a 15-minute free phone conversation to discuss therapy with me. A first full session will involve me taking a full history of your emotional development: family, past events, current difficulties, medication. It also gives you the opportunity to ask questions about therapy and how I work.
