“We repeat what we don’t repair”
I am a warm and open counsellor with a gentle, yet challenging approach. My hope is to create a relationship between us that will facilitate you connecting with your own inner wisdom, in order to overcome any difficulties you are wanting to think about.
Working relationally means I focus on what is happening in the here and now between us, so as to create meaning and understanding around your experience. I will also support you in looking at how unhelpful patterns from the past, may be interfering with your life today. Together we can explore new ways of meeting life’s challenges and focus on what you want to achieve.
In my free time I’m passionate about self-development so I attend many workshops. This means I am always bringing new insights and understanding into the way I work. It allows me to integrate a variety of skills, which means more flexibility and creativity.
I worked in the world of IT prior to retraining as a therapist. I have a background in managing people and problem solving which has been very helpful in my current role.
I trained as an Integrative Therapist at the Bath centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BCPC) and have over 10 years experience working as a private counsellor.
I have a private practice in St George, Bristol (BS5) where I offer Integrative Psychodynamic therapy and Couples Counselling, as well as Internal Family Systems therapy, Shadow work and Supervision. I offer short and long term contracts.
I currently teach on the Counselling Foundation course at Bath Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BCPC).
I have been managing the counselling Service at Weston College, which has over 30,000 students since 2017. I work with ages 16 to 60, generally in a short-term model. Additionally, I supervise a team of 9 counsellors both in group and one to one supervision.
I am a session therapist at a well known private hospital. I offer short and long term work as well as running psychotherapy group for inpatients.
I also have a broad range of experience and an understanding of the following issues:
- Understanding Anger
- Anxiety and Panic attacks
- Lack of meaning or direction in life
- attachment issues
- Sexual problems
- Gender dysphoria, transgender and sexual identity
- Self Esteem
- Emotional eating
