Hi! I am a qualified counsellor and offer you a safe place to explore whatever may be troubling you at an affordable rate.
I’m trained as an integrative counselling practitioner. This means that I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches. My way of working is to tailor my therapeutic approach, depending on your needs and expectations.
In my experience one approach doesn’t suit all people, and you may need different levels of support at different times. I therefore offer brief counselling, as well as more open-ended, longer term work. A decision on the most appropriate approach will be made with you.
I’ve much experience (in schools and in higher education) of supporting young people with emotional difficulties of a wide ranging nature, both individually and within groups. I’ve also worked extensively with parents experiencing difficulties with their children. I myself am a mother of 2 children, a boy and a girl. I’ve a particular interest in the links between learning and emotional wellbeing, and in family systems, as well as the emotional and behavioural patterns passed from one generation to the next within families.
I currently work at Bristol University student counselling service and for a charitable counselling organisation based in Stroud. I have experience of working with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and anger.
I look forward to hearing from you!
