About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced and fully qualified person centred counsellor, based in Clevedon, North Somerset. I am friendly, compassionate and approachable, and offer a safe and confidential space for clients to explore their difficulties. 


Background: 

I have many years experience working with adults, couples and children; and I specialise in relationship difficulties, developing self knowledge, codependency and addictions.

Although person centred, I also use CBT, Gestault and Transactional Analysis theories and practices where it may be beneficial. 

In addition to both a psychology  degree and an FdSc in Counselling; I am also a fully trained relationship counsellor and previously delivered training/ group workshops on childhood attachment, negative relationship patterns and codependency. 

Before setting up in private practise, I worked as a counselling psychotherapist at residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. This was a rich training ground for supporting individuals to discover the 'whys' of addiction - for example low self worth, grief or childhood abuse and abandonment; and exploring the many ways that past hurts can manifest themselves in various 'fixing yourself' behaviours (spending, over eating, sex, romance addiction, affairs, internet addiction, self harm; as well as anger and depression). 

I have also had many years experience working with children and families, and am happy to work with primary school aged children (or above). I have an up to date DBS. 

Please contact me for further information, or to make an appointment.
