About me and my therapy practice

There are many reasons that lead a person to counselling. Your reasons will be as individual as you. Counselling provides a space where your individuality and experience will be received with respect and compassion.

I see counselling as a partnership where we work together to develop your understanding and self-awareness.  I will not judge or tell you what to do. Instead, I will be there to support you in your exploration of what you bring.

My work is informed by counselling theories and ideas that fit closely with my own set of values and beliefs. This allows for a more integrative approach that means that my skills and experience can be used to meet your needs.

I will invite you to become more aware of your own physical and emotional responses and may use mindfulness techniques. I will share knowledge about different counselling ideas appropriately and be clear about what I am offering and why – counselling does not need to feel mysterious.  Should you choose to work with me, our sessions will be a place of learning, acceptance and growth.

Qualifications and Experience

I have a professional diploma in therapeutic counselling and have been practising for over ten years.  I have also worked within in NHS mental health services and lectured at City of Bristol College within their counselling team.

I am experienced in working with complex trauma and have completed several training courses to deepen my knowledge and skills.  Should you wish to talk about something of this nature, we will agree together how we will approach it.  

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework of working with clients.
