Interested in counselling?
Counselling helps by providing a place where you can explore issues and gain insights that might have been difficult to discover by yourself. By being more aware about your situation, you can be more empowered to make positive changes. This can help alleviate feelings of stuckness, despair, depression. When there is a sense of a way forwards that sits well with you, life gains new hope.
I work by listening to your concerns, and helping you see them from new perspectives. The space I provide is free from judgement. My training allows me to notice feelings and responses you might have that you were otherwise not so aware of. By bringing these to your attention in a careful and gentle way, you might come to know more about your concerns, and be able to more easily address them.
I offer short to long term therapy to help with a variety of emotional issues, finding new directions, or anything that might be concerning you. I offer sessions in Clifton, Bristol, and find the best results come from seeing clients on a weekly basis. Everything we share is confidential.

We get scared by the most unlikely of things, usually when there is no obvious source of threat.» Read more about: How mental health affects us, and where therapy comes in. »
I enjoy a healthy lifestyle, and counselling forms a part of both my career and identity. My own journey has involved coming to understand the human condition more, and it always excites me when I encounter someone with a desire to explore their own humanity and personal potential.
My studies started in 2008, and I became qualified in 2014. I have since become progressively interested in the fields of trauma and anxiety. So much is being discovered each year in these fields, making it a stimulating time to be a counsellor!
Outside of the counselling room, I spend a lot of time in the countryside, cycling, walking, diving, and exercising my creative interests incluing photography. As much as it can be very fruitful looking inwards and exploring the psyche and past, I’m a strong believer in getting stuck in and living life!
