About me and my therapy practice

I offer psychodynamic counselling for adult women in Bristol.

I am a qualified counsellor, specialising in women’s mental health and working from a broadly psychodynamic perspective, which means that we will generally be exploring and addressing your present difficulties with reference to your past experiences and childhood. Our early life and relationships can unconsciously shape our sense of ourselves and create patterns in our behaviour and way of relating. Sometimes we find ourselves feeling stuck or at a point of crisis in our emotional lives, unsure where to turn and psychodynamic counselling offers an opportunity to understand ourselves, to untangle inner conflicts and areas of distress in a way which can bring both solace and change.

In addition to the psychodynamic model, I also draw on related ideas and techniques such as inner child work, trauma treatment theory, transactional analysis and feminist counselling principles.
