With over 12 years experience working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and Accredited through the Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapists (ACAT). Please see my ‘Qualifications and Experience’ page for more information. 

Previously, I worked for John Cabot Academy Secondary School in Kingswood, as the School Counsellor, and for the NHS for over 8 years’ as a Psychotherapist, Counsellor, Cognitive Behaviour Therapist (CBT) and Cognitive Analytic Therapist (CAT).

Exploring and understanding unhelpful patterns in the ways that we relate to ourselves and others, can help in recognising what goes on for you, to enable change to occur. It can be helpful to find out where these patterns have come from, how they continue in the present and for us to explore ways in making changes in the long-term.

If working with the past doesn’t feel right for you, I work in the present, understanding problems and making changes in the here and now. Each therapy is unique for individuals and I tailor my approach to meet your needs.

I have a relaxed, warm, transparent and collaborative approach to therapy. Working from a private, detached and confidential space,  you can explore what is on your mind. Feeling safe and secure, in a non-judgemental environment, we will go at your pace, to achieve your goals.
