What I can offer with counselling

I offer a safe, confidential place for you to talk about your feelings and explore key issues in your life. You may feel stuck in negative thoughts and behaviours or are struggling with difficult relationships, feelings and emotions. 
I can help you make positive changes, find new ways to meet your own particular challenges. Life can be hard and sometimes we all need a bit of extra help. 

I have worked with people facing a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, fertility issues, pregnancy and birth, work related stress, long term health conditions, parenting, life transitions, bereavement and loss. 
I describe myself as an ‘Integrative therapist’ which means I draw on different therapeutic tools and approaches to help you find your path towards more self-acceptance and to enjoy more connection to others and yourself.
Whether you want short term counselling to help with a specific issue or longer term support, what I offer is a safe and supportive space for you to explore what is important to you and your life. I also work outdoors and take therapy into nature. If you are interested in having your therapy outdoors I can give you full details of how this works. 
I am interested in the whole person, so the role of mind and body and before qualifying as a counsellor I completed a training in Shaitsu massage in 2004, with the Ki Kai Shaitsu School,  and qualified as a Baby Massage Instructor in 2009 with the International Association of Infant Massage. I work as a part time Counselling Lecturer at a local FE College and offer counselling skills training for other counselling training providers. Im also a qualified Instructor for Shibashi Tai Chi and offer classes in Bristol.  I also run courses in ‘Creative Writing for Well Being’ and will work with creative expression to support the counselling process.  I am a fully qualified practitioner and a member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. (Registered Member MBACP).
I am also a member of Bristol Insight Meditation and help facilitate meditation sessions for the group. 


I affirm the rights of LGBTQIA+ people and neuro-divergent people and intend to be anti-racist and anti-xenophobic and to be aware of my own bias, conscious and unconscious.



I offer counselling at the Practice Rooms in Cotham, Clifton and Stokes Croft  and also work outdoors in Durdham Downs and Leigh Woods

Why come to counselling ?

There are times for all of us when life feels too much. Either some sudden event throws us into crisis or we find it an on-going struggle to see any direction or purpose in our lives. People choose to receive counselling for different reasons. Some people come for help with a specific issue and would like to talk about how they are feeling and find a way to feel better. Others would like more long-term support to explore emotional issues and develop better ways of coping. Friends and family can help but at points in our lives we all need a bit of extra support. I believe that we all want to lead happy and fulfilling lives and counselling can help people change their life and find more peace and well-being.
