I work Mondays to Thursdays, with sessions at 2.15, 3.20 and 4.30 p.m. 

About me and my therapy practice

To offer you the best possible support, and to focus on your individual needs, I draw from a range of counselling approaches and techniques, in an open-minded and gentle way. I offer an intuitive, nourishing and warm therapeutic relationship.

My aim would be to support you in finding more clarity and satisfaction in your life, and to work on obstacles and difficulties that might be preventing you from leading a meaningful and fulfilling life. You can talk at your own pace about whatever might be troubling you, any thoughts and feelings, and I will listen to you without judgement.

I offer short and long term confidential counselling from my practice in Knowle, Bristol.

I have worked extensively with clients who have experienced abuse, trauma, PTSD and domestic violence, bereavement, relationship difficulties, and body issues. I have a professional background in supporting adults with learning difficulties and mental health issues.

Having lived in many different countries, I am sensitive to cultural diversity. I worked as a counsellor in Guatemala, with clients from a range of backgrounds. Please get in touch if you would be interested in French language counselling and I can provide you with more information in French.

I am fully qualified registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling from the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC).
