About Me

Currently working on zoom only - until Pandemic-related uncertainties are resolved.

I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Training, based in Bristol. I have substantial experience in working with diverse aspects of mental ill health. As a registered member of the BACP and training member of the UKCP, I work 1:1 with adults, both short and longer term, providing a safe, confidential and non-judgmental online space where even very difficult emotions are welcome. 

I qualified as a Psychotherapeutic counsellor, with a core modality of Transactional Analysis, in 2010. Prior to this I worked as a Psychiatric Nurse in the NHS and I more recently worked for Bristol Mind. I am currently studying for an MA in Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapy and thus I am able to integrate a number of different theories in order to inform my practice and help me be as attuned to you as possible.

My approach is one which can help to change behaviours, feelings and thoughts gradually over time, as we explore and discover their unconscious meanings and historical motivations. Your whole body as well as your mind is acknowledged in this process, so recognising that you are not simply a diagnosis or set of symptoms can also lead to you gaining far greater self-awareness and ultimately, self-acceptance. 

The pace and content of our sessions will be led by your need. I am fascinated by the close links between a person's mental health and their unique life experiences, so in listening to you and empathically reflecting what you show me I aim to co-create a relationship within which a more accurate representation of your true self can begin to emerge. 

People come to counselling from such different backgrounds, many having never previously considered embarking on this journey, so I understand that it may feel overwhelming at first to be so actively listened to, supported and understood, perhaps for the first time...but as our relationship develops and deepens you may also experience more profound, lasting changes and feel more confident about making different choices, for yourself.
