About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor with a wealth of experience. I believe there are times in our life when we all need some additional support to help work through issues within ourselves or our relationships. I offer a safe place to explore what is going on for you and to provide emotional support and coping strategies.

My role as your counsellor is to work with you in a way that best meets your needs and helps you to move forward with your life.

I offer a non judgemental, safe and professional counselling relationship, where you can expect to be listened to and understood. No matter how big or small the challenges you face, your counselling experience with me will be professional, confidential, safe, supportive and ethical.

Alongside my Private Practice, I was employed as a Clinical Lead by a renowned National Healthcare company, providing counselling and support for people experiencing difficulties including depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement or anger issues.

I am an EMDR UK & Ireland registered therapist. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is a powerful treatment for individuals who have experienced some form of trauma, such as post traumatic stress, childhood sexual and/or physical abuse or neglect, assault, or road traffic accidents. Research studies have shown that EMDR can markedly accelerate your recovery after a traumatic experience. Recent research also suggests benefits of using EMDR in treating conditions including anxiety disorder, depression and chronic pain. 

I have extensive experience of working with individuals and couples experiencing loss and grief. I have volunteered for a Bristol Counselling Agency specialising in Addiction and have volunteered for another National Agency supporting people in their darkest times of distress and despair

I offer an initial free informal meeting, which gives us the opportunity to talk about how we might work together. I am available for counselling during weekdays and evenings, offering flexible appointments including early morning sessions. Ample parking provision is readily available at my place of practice.
