About me and my therapy practice

Are you overwhelmed, stressed, depressed, and troubled by unhelpful recurring thoughts? I work with private clients from the Bristol and north east Bristol areas, including Winterbourne, Frenchay, Stoke Bishop, Hambrook and Almondsbury. I offer a safe and supportive place for you to explore whatever is on your mind or causing distress. I aim to help and encourage you to find your own solutions. I am an experienced, BACP Accredited counsellor. I have a Higher Professional Diploma in Humanistic Counselling (with distinction) and regularly attend a range of training courses. I work with a wide range of clients and have completed over 1000 hours of counselling work. I am on the BACP register and am regularly supervised by an experienced BACP registered supervisor. I have experience of working with bereavement, the stresses carers face, school and education related issues, acute anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed as well as issues like studying stress, bullying, online bullying, suicidal thoughts and relationship issues. 

Practice description

I work in a person centered way, trying to help you to find a way forward in relation to the issues you came with. I believe that you have withing you the capacity to find your own direction and solutions. My role is to facilitate and strengthen that process.

I offer single session counselling (SSC). For more information about this please see my website.

My first session

I do not use the first session for a formal assessment as I believe this interrupts the flow of the session. However, at the start of the first session is a chance for you to ask any questions any questions you may have. You may find that one session is helpful and all that you need. However, you may decide to arrange further sessions. I recommend we meet on a weekly basis, at least for the first month. My sessions are client led.
