I have an open, curious approach to my practice as a counselling therapist, and aim to create a calm and containing space within which we can explore whatever you need to bring. I am committed to working with you and at a pace that is sensitive to your needs.
A background in the creative arts and personal development supports my focus and belief in the process of therapy; of feeling listened to, valued and accepted within a trusting relationship, able to embrace challenge and contain the unbearable through the process of change. I will listen in a way that neither judges you, nor tells you what to do.
As well as recent experience counselling adults for a mental health charity in central Bristol, I have worked relationally with adults and young people for many years. I welcome clients bringing a range of issues around relationships, anxiety and depression, trauma and self-harm, grief and loss.
How I work
I am an integrative counselling therapist, and the therapeutic relationship is at the heart of my practice alongside the essential values of empathy, acceptance and genuineness. To complement this, I can offer you ways of working which are creative and explorative.
BACP membership (MBACP) supports my commitment to ethical practice and in providing a safe and confidential space for you.
I am able to offer short term (6 sessions) or longer term counselling therapy.
