ABOUT ME

Experienced counsellor & BACP Registered Member.

I provide long and short term therapy for individuals in Bristol and surrounding areas. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and I abide by their code of ethics.


Before completing my training in counselling, I worked in the  mental health field for 12 years. I have worked for various charitable organisations in Bristol, such as Bristol Drug's Project, Knowle West Drug & Alcohol Service and St Mungo's. I had various different roles within these organisations, all of which involved one to one and group work with clients who were struggling with various mental health difficulties.

In 2008 I decided to train as a counsellor; I undertook my training at UWE, in Bristol. I felt that the training would support my work within the field of mental health & compliment the client work that I was already doing.

In 2011 I set up my counselling service which is based in Horfield, Bristol. I enjoy supporting others through their journey of discovery and change.

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, such as;

- Depression

- Anxiety

- Stress

- Relationship problems

- Sexual abuse & trauma

- Chronic fatigue

- Bereavement

- Domestic violence

- General life dissatisfaction

My qualifications;

- Diploma in Counselling

- Certificate in Counselling

- BSc Hons Psychology & Sociology

- Motivational Interviewing training

- Brief Solution Focussed Therapy training

I regularly attend continuing professional development (CPD) events to ensure that my working practice continues to evolve. I engage in monthly clinical and group supervision, to ensure that I am working ethically with my clients. 


I have experience of engaging in my own personal therapy over a number of years.
