I provide a confidential and safe space for you to explore a variety of issues. In counselling, I aim to develop a trusting relationship which is non-judgemental and wholly accepting of the individual and his or her own unique way of navigating life. Because we are all unique, different approaches may be called upon to address individual needs, so while I use a combination of psycho-analytic and humanistic methods, I am also flexible and attuned to your pace and requirements.

Working creatively can also be helpful when talking becomes difficult and other means of expression are needed.

It is important that you feel comfortable with your counsellor and our initial meeting is an opportunity to gain a sense of our potential to work well together for your benefit. With this in mind, the first session is charged at Â£30.
I am available for short term counselling (minimum 8 weeks) or long-term therapy and work from Frome and Bristol.
