About me and my therapy practice

Bright Future counselling is a service for young people and adults, based in the Corsham and Melksham areas of Wiltshire.

​At times life can feel overwhelming for any number of reasons. Perhaps you are struggling with a recent event, or past events are still causing you emotional distress or unhappiness. Maybe you feel confused about how you feel and would like to make more sense of your emotions. Or indeed you may have a specific problem and would like to work through it to enable you to enjoy life more fully.

I believe that the unique relationship that can be created between a counsellor and a client is one of the most fundamental elements of successful counselling. I work to build a safe space where I don’t judge, or try to ‘fix’ your problems, but rather listen with attention, giving you support and time to explore your issues, thoughts and feelings. Feeling understood, heard, and accepted just as you are can be incredibly empowering, and pave the way for real change and transformation.

​This doesn’t mean that I play a passive role in the counselling room, but instead of advice giving, I’m supporting you in finding your own solutions and answers – in a way that works for you. I may offer ways to work through certain feelings or support you to make more sense of why you are feeling the way you are, but I believe strongly that making true and lasting change comes when we can find our own answers, rather than asking for instruction from others. 

I am a fully qualified counsellor, and am listed on BACP's accredited register.
