I am a relational-integrative counsellor, working in-person with clients in Bristol, and online with clients online across the UK.  I can provide support relating to a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, grief, and low self-esteem, and I specialise in workplace and relationship concerns.  I am LGBTQIA+ affirming and can offer you a non-judgmental, safe, and supportive space to talk, as well as a range of tools to draw on in ways that work best for you.  Together we could work to build your self-awareness, reflect on societal and cultural influences on your life, overcome difficulties, and recognise your strengths.  But whatever you bring to therapy, I meet each client as unique, and recognise that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to working together.  ​


As a person-centred, humanistic practitioner, I offer an authentic and non-judgmental therapeutic space.  I have experience in supporting clients with relationship concerns, workplace issues, anxiety, depression, bereavement, childhood trauma (inc. sexual abuse), emotional abuse, estrangement from children, divorce, and substance abuse.  I'm also an integrative counsellor, which means I can draw on a range of psychotherapeutic theories and tools to help you explore your feelings, relationships, and choices, in a way that best supports your individual needs. 

This therapy recognises the importance of relationships in our lives and sense of wellbeing.  Working in this way provides a empathic and compassionate therapeutic space for exploring clients’ distress.  Within this, I draw on Psychodynamic and Gestalt therapies because I believe that our ways of being in relationship can be understood by exploring our past relational experiences, as well as the ways we feel ‘in the here and now’. 

I borrow from Narrative therapy with respect to my fundamental view that ‘the person is not the problem, the problem is the problem’.  This type of therapy recognises that we are the experts on our own lives, yet we are all affected by the people and external environments in which we live.  Therefore the stories we develop about ourselves, and carry with us, are not about us alone.  This perspective provides scope for reauthoring our stories, if we wish to.

I use aspects of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) to support and empower clients who may be struggling with difficult  feelings and thoughts.  It doesn't attempt to challenge these thoughts and feelings, but to help clients change their relationship to them.  Using tools from this therapy, I can provide ways to help clients live more mindfully, identify their values, and support them to 'act' in ways that align to these values.


I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I abide by their ethical framework.

I have full liability insurance.
