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.

I have over 12 years experience as a counsellor. I am there just for you, to listen to you as you talk about whatever it is that is troubling you. I am not going to give advice – but give you time and space to work things through. It may be something specific, or it can be an opportunity to work on increasing insight and self awareness.  It can either be short or long term. Counselling can be a great support in times of change, personal crisis and distress. The sessions are client led – this means we work at your pace and I provide a safe, non judgmental environment for our work together.

If you are interested in counselling sessions outdoors, then you may find talkwalkrun works for you. It can take the form of 'walk and talk' or, for those who would like to include some running, that is also an option. As a qualified counsellor I love combining being outside and moving with enabling people to find a way through difficulties in life. My counselling approach is an integrative one, although I place an emphasis on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). In particular I incorporate ideas from the most recent model which has been shown to have rapid and long-lasting impact for people suffering with anxiety or depression.

I believe that everyone has their own unique story that is rooted in and intertwined with a bigger picture; family, culture, the wider world, etc. Challenges can therefore arise in many ways and manifest in multiple forms throughout life. As an integrative counsellor, I work alongside clients, focusing on their needs and adapting therapeutic methods and techniques, to their distinctive story. I do this through a holistic approach, honouring the fact that as human beings our bodies, emotions, thoughts and responses are all deeply interlinked, which neuroscience is increasingly revealing.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
Counsellors and therapists in BS6 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

If you're seeking a marriage counsellor in BS6 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in BS6 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in BS6 or family therapy in BS6.

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 BS6, or Child Psychologists in BS6. You can also use the filters to see only female psychologists, or gay-allied counsellors

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like BS6 psychologists specialising in anger management, couples counselling, or EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way'. A couples counsellor or a family counsellor may use different techniques depending on the one that works best for you. 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.
