At times we can find it hard to express how we feel, or even locate what emotions we are feeling. If you want to be able to come to a place where you can feel able to express yourself, be honest and feel a better sense of well-being, coming to counselling could be the place to start. Whether you have a specific goal, a problem or feel like you don't know where to start, that's okay, talking can help you get there.

There are times when life can become overwhelming, or we may feel depressed or anxious, have a sense of being stuck or lost. There may be particular events which are troubling, relationship difficulties, unresolved childhood issues, bereavement,etc. These can challenge our ability to cope with our lives.Counselling is a process where we can examine, talk about, reflect on, and explore our lives and the experiences we are going through. Using our feelings, thoughts, sensations and emotions we can begin to find a way to get in touch with our sense of self and our experiencing. Gradually we can find ways of moving forward in our lives.

Life can be a challenge in all sorts of ways, sometimes we need a bit of independent support finding our way through those challenges, particularly in these times of increased isolation. Challenges may be current or things from the past that still impact you. You may not be able to quite put your finger on what it is that feels wrong. You may have experienced a key life event that you'd like to explore. You may be experiencing anxiety, depression, loneliness and isolation. You may have suffered a bereavement or loss that has thrown your life off course.

Seeking a counsellor can be a daunting process. If you’re having having trouble maintaining nourishing connections or experienced a recent loss or trauma, I can work with you to find your own insights and strengths, enabling you to move towards more freedom and choice. I recognise the need to feel met within a safe and trusting relationship. Having a sense of safeness in the relationship, between us, is at the core of effective therapy. If we start by being easy and gentle with ourselves, caring for and being able to understand ourselves more fully, can pave the way for more fulfilment.

I am an experienced counsellor working in Thornbury, South Gloucestershire. You might be seeking counselling for the first time or returning to therapy. We all experience disconcerting feelings and upsetting concerns at some point in our lives. The best way to begin therapy is to arrange an introductory session to find out why you need counselling and how we can work together. There is no charge for the first session. As the relationship of trust and respect develops between client and counsellor, you will become empowered to explore daunting emotions through a non-judgemental, client-centred approach.

I believe in the power of opening up, and while I will draw on theory and knowledge to support each individual client, I am led by the client and their individual needs. An ideal client is someone who wishes to build a therapeutic space alongside me, allowing me to facilitate safety and build trust. I am experienced at working with complex mental health needs, therefore I begin by creating a formulation of the problem with the client, and collaboratively establish their needs and personal goals. i am interested in helping others to learn about themselves through relational dynamics they experience.
