About me and my therapy practice

I am a warm, friendly and effective counsellor, who welcomes the whole of you to take part in the process of therapy, at a pace that suits you. Alongside fundamental qualities of empathy, acceptance and authenticity, I'll bring humour and challenge to our work. The relationship we develop will support you to explore and understand difficult issues; increase self awareness; and relate better to self and others.

I work with a full range of presenting issues such as anxiety, depression, self esteem, relationship issues or loss. Specific experience includes working with young adults; people with drug or alcohol issues; and a background in the creative industries gives me an understanding of the creative process.

I strive to meet you exactly where you are in your journey, so that together we can explore, reflect and heal. My aim is to help you work towards a more positive sense of self, increasing self-compassion and forging new, more positive relationships with those around you.

Practice description

I usually practice in Queen Square and Cotham Hill, but currently all sessions are conducted on video call, until further notice.

My first session

Our first session is a chance to get to know one another, find out if we are a good fit for counselling, and explore the issues that have brought you here. We’ll briefly talk a bit about your life history. We will also work out what you would like to achieve and how you will know when you’ve got there. 

I encourage you to take some time after the session and think about whether you feel we connected well. Then if you are ready to begin, we can make a start on weekly sessions.
