About me and my therapy practice
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with a private practice in Eastville, Bristol. I offer a reduced cost introductory session. My role as a therapist is to support you to grow through your difficulty and fulfil your potential in your daily life.
Counselling and psychotherapy offer you the opportunity to talk about any difficulties, distress or confusion you may be experiencing in a completely safe and confidential space. We will explore whatever you choose to bring at a pace that is determined by you. Developing your awareness in the here-and-now of therapy sessions helps you to clearly see the nature of your experience and to cut through the causes of suffering in your daily life. In this process we explore your difficulties and also your resources. For this reason it is a journey of recovering and/or deepening your essential capacities and qualities such as vitality, confidence, insight, compassion, joy and love.
Gestalt Therapy is suitable for a vast range of issues and some of those that I work with are depression, anxiety, abuse, anger management, bereavement, relationship issues, low self-esteem, abortion, stress, eating disorders, domestic violence, stress and trauma. I work both short-term (counselling) and long-term (psychotherapy) according to your needs. I also offer couples therapy.
I have a postgraduate Diploma in Gestalt Counselling and a further Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy. I have worked in a wide range of settings across the private, public and voluntary sectors including a charity for Disabled People in Torquay, the NHS in Exeter and as a counsellor in a G.P. surgery. I have experience with a diverse range of clients amongst the general public including the elderly, people with disabilities (physical and learning difficulties), carers, and people of ethnic minorities.
