Please note I am on annual leave from Friday 22nd July and will not be responding to enquiries until Monday 8th August 2022 and after. You are welcome to send enquiries in anticipation of a reply on my return. 

About me and my therapy practice

My background is in Gestalt and Person Centred modalities. My work centres on the client's experience in the here and now. I encourage clients to be curious about what feels live for them and use this as a starting point to explore what needs attending to. 

I approach my work as a collaborative process where the relationship between client and therapist is of utmost importance, and support clients to experience and understand their feelings in a non-judgemental, confidential environment.

In addition to my private practice, I have experience working in a variety of voluntary settings and with young people aged 18 + in a Higher Education setting. 

I hold a professional diploma in Gestalt counselling and psychotherapy, and an MSc in Applied Psychology and am continually undertaking long and short forms of professional development.

Practice description

I can offer appointments from a cosy private practice space in South Bristol, or online via Zoom.

I aim to be as flexible as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, and offer in-person clients the option to work remotely during lockdowns and in circumstances where they are required to isolate.

I am available for long and short term work.
