I am an experienced accredited BACP Counsellor and I practice in accordance with the BACP code of ethics. I currently work full time for the NHS and see private clients in evenings and weekends from my home office in Nailsworth, Stroud and in Southville Clinic in Bristol.
My aim is to create a safe, confidential and warm space in which to explore the issues which you bring. Together with a focused and boundaried approach I like to bring creativity, warmth and humour into the counselling room along with my passion for this area of work.
I believe that anxiety or depression can be a way of drawing our attention to what is currently inhibiting us from engaging fully in our life. I appreciate that it may be difficult initially to engage in the counselling process. However, I believe that living with these unexplored difficulties is even more distressing.
Each counselling relationship is unique and I value each client's individuality when working together. I can work with you on a short term, long term or open ended basis depending on your need. The therapy I offer will involve us developing clear boundaries in which to explore the past/present issues that are affecting your life and together discover a path to move forward.
The first step can be a daunting one, but identifying that there is an area of life that you would like to change is the biggest step of all. Our first session will be a chance for me to explore with you the reason for seeking counselling; a chance for you to ask any questions you may have about this process and for me to see if I would be the best person to help you at this time. If we choose to work together we can then arrange a regular time to meet.
If you would like to arrange an initial assessment please email, text or call to book a mutually convenient time.
