About

At times of feeling low or anxious we often think, “what’s the point of trying it won’t make any difference”, leading to feelings of depression, sadness, fear and tearfulness. This then leads to changes in our behaviour such as withdrawing from others or staying in bed as we mull things over in our heads which makes us feel worse. Additionally, past trauma issues can often leave us feeling overwhelmed or with experiences of flashbacks and nightmares. Relationship issues left unresolved often leave us with a sense of helplessness and relationship breakdown leave us feel confused. Does this sound familiar to you?
I offer CBT therapy within Bristol & Cardiff as a BABCP Accredited CBT Therapist and BACP Accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor. I also practice as an Accredited EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) practitioner and Couples Counsellor. I provide an open, accepting, genuinely safe and non-judgemental space to reflect without fear.
Please don't hesitate to contact me, I will be more than happy to discuss your needs and explore your difficulties. I have the professional training, skills and experience to help you to help yourself. Being heard, without being judged or told what to do, can help you to discover more about yourself and the issues you are facing.
