Looking for a therapist can be an overwhelming experience; however, it is already a good step in your journey. You may be needing to be listened to or seeking support for a particular challenge. Emotional pain and mental distress need a space to be explored and processed and therapy can offer a safe environment for this.Counseling and psychotherapy can provide an opportunity to be in a safe space where you can be listened to by someone who is unbiased and non-judgmental. By sharing your story and your experiences, and building trust and openness in the relationship with your therapist, we can attempt to gain deeper understanding.

We live in a culture that promotes the idea of strong, powerful individuals who live picture perfect lives. There is little room for showing our vulnerability, or our need for connection. There is a cultural expectation that when things are difficult for us we should just 'get over it' and not make a fuss, this might manifest in you with thoughts of "what's wrong with me", "why is this so hard" and "I should be able to manage by myself" and so on! You may be feeling fragmented, ​disconnected, numb, overwhelmed, fearful, unable to cope, you might feel like giving up.

I provide a safe and unpressured space where you can explore all aspects of who you are, without the restrictions and expectations you might feel in everyday life. Counselling can help you make sense of your feelings, behaviour and relationships. I believe this can be a process of growth and self-discovery. We often adapt our true selves to manage the pressures of life. Counselling can be an opportunity to say the things you may never have had the chance to say before and explore feelings that may have been hidden. It can lead to deepened self-awareness and can help you find ways to become 'unstuck' and move forward with life.

Sometimes we need someone to witness our experience, to validate our struggles. This sounds simple, yet many of us often feel like we can't get it from people in our lives. As a therapist, it all begins with me getting to know your perspective, to see your world through your eyes as best I can. You might feel you know exactly why you seek therapy, or it may seem less clear right now — either way, you probably want something to change. Perhaps you feel aspects of your life are 'stuck', or feel overwhelmed by emotions, thoughts, or other difficulties that seem impossible to move through.

There are many reasons why people seek time and space to talk and reflect. You might want to talk about thoughts and feelings that are difficult to discuss with others, or consider what has happened to bring you to this point in your life. This can be a space for exploration and discovery, a protected hour in which you will be listened to. My focus is on listening openly, without judgment, to whatever you bring. I will listen to your experiences and your point of view and together we can look at different perspectives which can help you to live more freely.

Finding the right therapist can be a daunting process. I believe that it is important for you to feel a positive connection with your therapist if you are to receive the most beneficial experience from Psychotherapy. I believe that the healer is within you, but I also understand that it is difficult for anyone to self heal without support. My purpose is not only to assist you with the healing process, but also to facilitate your change and growth and help you to naturally awaken your own life supporting behaviours.

Each professional in Bristol then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety.

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.
