Has your drink or drug use started to get on top of you? Are you experiencing difficulties in relationships with those around you? Have you turned to self-destructive patterns of behaviour in an attempt to cope with low mood, difficult experiences or traumatic events? If this sounds like you then my years of experience as a Counsellor in the fields of substance misuse and in healing trauma may help to heal your fragmented parts and build your own motivation to make the behavioural changes you desire.

You maybe seeking support/help when things have become tough, difficult, or overwhelming that could be having an impact on health, mental health, on work, family, partner or affecting other relationships. Maybe past events are having an impact on you today in your life that you feel you need to talk about with a trusted professional, in a confidential way, where you will not be judge or criticised. This could be because you want to address issues around self esteem, sexual abuse, stress related work, health problems, trauma or bereavement. It could be that you need the space to off load, be listened to to find a new perspective

June 2022 - I am currently fully booked and not taking on any new clients until September 2022. Many of us have times in our lives when we feel the need for some extra support. Perhaps we are lacking confidence and self-esteem, going through relationship difficulties, feeling depressed, anxious, experiencing stressful life changes such as bereavement, divorce, or redundancy. Perhaps now is the right time to address long-standing issues – or maybe we find ourselves at a crossroads and feel unsure of ourselves and of which way to turn.

I am a BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor and mainly practice Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). ISTDP is an emotion-focused, trauma-informed and attachment-based approach with very positive research outcomes. Some people begin therapy clear about what they want help with, others need some assistance in understanding their difficulty. I provide a safe space for clients to better understand their behaviour and experiences by making links between the present difficulty and the past. We also work together in the session to help you explore new ways of relating to yourself and your problem.

Sometimes life can feel like a real struggle. Are your thoughts and feelings reducing your enjoyment of life and your relationships with those around you? Maybe you are experiencing stress or a ‘stuckness’; feelings of anxiety, uncertainty and overwhelm; perhaps you are living with a recent or past loss or relationship difficulties; or is it that a lack of purpose or direction in life is dragging you down? I am an integrative therapist which means that I use elements of different psychological ideas to inform the most appropriate way of working with you. A background in the creative arts enriches and supports my practice.

You may be here because you want to feel better. It could be that you are struggling with an immediate life problem such as a specific anxiety, depression or life situation that you need someone to help you with. Or it may be a general feeling that something in life doesn't seem right and you want to explore it. Making sense of it can be difficult on your own. Through counselling, I can help you make sense of what is happening so that you can start to feel more like the person that you want to be.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in BS5 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in BS5 then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in BS5, or Child Psychologists in BS5.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like BS5 psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in BS5 specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others.

Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
