ABOUT ME

I trained as a counsellor because I had been through some difficult times myself.  I realised the value talking therapy could have and wanted to offer that support to others. I believe counselling offers  a way for us to increase our awareness of our own experiences, gives us space to reflect on our emotions, relationships and behaviour, and can be a way to increase our self-care and look after our mental health.

My professional training was at the University of the West of England gaining a Certificate in Counselling Skills and Professional Diploma in Counselling. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical framework and their practice and training standards.

As well as my private practice, I also work as a counsellor at Kinergy – a Bristol-based charity supporting adult survivors of sexual violence and abuse, and I volunteer for the charity Samaritans, providing emotional support for those in distress or despair.

 

I know how crucial it can be to feel heard and truly understood and how healing it can be to work through things with a professional.
