I have an established online practice and I am currently only working online with clients (both current and new). I will be seeing clients face-to-face again as soon as I feel it is appropriate to do so
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with a private practice in Bristol located between Ashley Down, Eastville and Easton. I work with individuals and couples, both face-to-face and online. I also offer Tango Couples Therapy, an alternative, dance-oriented approach. I have an extensive background in meditation practice, including mindfulness, which informs my therapeutic practice.
I have a postgraduate Diploma in Gestalt Counselling and a further Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy. I am also a qualified Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapist. I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) on the BACP Accredited Register and I abide by its Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
I provide a safe, confidential relationship of earned trust within which you can explore the issues that feel important to you. I will support you to be present with and to explore whatever feels difficult, stuck and unresolved. When you meet your experience with compassion and openness, change and growth occur naturally. This process involves getting in touch with your inherent strengths and resources whilst attending to difficulties. It is a journey of recovering, discovering and deepening core qualities within you including compassion, clarity, confidence, creativity, connectedness, wisdom and love.
Life is rich with potential yet it often gives rise to suffering. We all sometimes feel stuck, confused or overwhelmed.
It can be difficult to find our way through challenges such as these. We live in a culture which has promoted individualism and self-reliance to such an extent that we may think it is a sign of failure to acknowledge our vulnerability. However, reaching out to a counsellor or psychotherapist for professional support at a time of need can be an empowering step to take - you are making a choice to address the difficulty and begin a process which leads to change and growth.
