About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor, offering counselling to adults and young people (15+) in Weston-Super-Mare, and from the surrounding area. My consulting rooms in Weston, are large enough to accommodate social distancing measures.
I offer a non-judgmental space to enable you to talk about whatever is making your life difficult.
I will work with all forms of difference sensitively in the room.
I am DBS cleared to work with adults and children.
Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling (Wessex Counselling and Psychotherapy)
Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Approaches to Counselling Children and Young People (Bristol Bridge Foundation)
Masters in Psychology in Education (University of Bristol)
BSc (Hons) degree in Behavioural Sciences.
I am an accredited member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC), a registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I have a registered enhanced Government Disclosure and Baring Service (DBS) Certificate.
I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor, I work psychodynamically, meaning I offer you a space to explore your problems in a way that refers to your past, thinking about potential conflicts or issues that are relevant to your life as it is now.
If you are feeling “stuck”, unable to make sense of something, it can seem overwhelming; talking together can enable you to move out of that position. Whether you are living with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, OCD, PTSD, combat stress, struggling with decision making, bereavement or loss in all its many forms; talking with a trained counsellor can be beneficial for you and those closest to you.
I offer counselling to adults in Weston-Super-Mare.
I have a small practice for young people aged between 15-18. My Post Graduate training with the Bristol Bridge Foundation has qualified me to work effectively with children and young people using psychodynamic counselling skills.
As with adults I offer an Introductory session for the young person to get a taste of how I work, and it provides an opportunity for me to see whether counselling is suitable for them or whether I need to direct them towards a different mental health service.
Should the work continue, I offer young people 12 weeks of weekly counselling. If the young person requires more long term work we can have a conversation about extending.
Confidentially and boundaries are clearly explained and agreed with the young person and carer/ parent before the therapy begins.
