What you get from me is an attentive and proactive ally. I am friendly and compassionate, but I won't passively observe unhelpful patterns that are barriers to change. Challenging when necessary and in solidarity with the part of you that knows things can be better, will be a key aspect of our relationship. Profound and lasting changes are possible, which is why I encourage people to address the root causes of unhappiness and not settle for learning to live with problems and symptoms that can often be resolved.

So often in our lives we reach a place where we are struggling in some capacity or another. It may be a deep-rooted issue that goes back to childhood, a past relationship or a trauma. It may be some destructive behaviour such as a form of self-harm or an eating disorder. It may be a negative thought process that is having an impact on our daily life. Whatever the issue, I believe counselling can help. Having a place where we can allow ourselves time and a calm space to think, talk and work things out can be absolutely priceless.

The psychologist can help you. Count on the support of a professional. Many think that the psychologist is exclusive for mental illnesses, this is a myth, the psychologist works in several areas and uses the best and specific knowledge to help people to have an improvement, guidance or even a determination that generates doubts in several aspects of your everyday life.

Feel like No one is Listening sometimes....? What with modern technology although it is faster and helpful in many ways it can also be a barrier. Often it can be consuming and affect our relationships in a big way. It may feel like the people we love and are close to aren't really listening to us? Do they seem distracted by Facebook? etc Has Lockdown bamboozled you?!! I am here to help you get back on track ....what with relationships yep being locked in with your partner may seem great to begin with but after a while? hmmm? Maybe not? Maybe it has changed how you both feel about each other?

My core aim as a counsellor is to provide a warm and consistent space for you to feel heard and understood. We have many parts within us that need a listening ear, and open heart. When we find acceptance and compassion for ourselves, things can start to change in our lives. I offer kindness, non-judgement, and curiosity so that you can begin to feel resilient and self-loving. Each of us is born with inherent wisdom and we are our own best expert. But you may have lost trust along the way. I strive to offer you a nurturing, therapeutic relationship that encourages a sense of safety to trust.

You might seek help for a variety of reasons, such as anxiety, low mood, bereavement, eating and body weight problems, relational issues, feeling stuck or overwhelmed by life change situations (the list is not exhaustive). Sometimes it could be difficult to identify a specific reason for seeking support. It might be a struggle to find a sense of meaning or a way through emotional pain. Whatever the reason you are looking for emotional support, I can offer my skills and experience in a safe a confidential non-judgemental space where you can feel free to express your thoughts, and feelings.

Most of us are taught from an early age that we should hide parts of ourselves to get by. As the person we are pulls away from the person we’re told we should be, we’re left with lingering distress and a struggle to feel truly connected and at home within ourselves. I believe the more we understand, accept and nurture ourselves, the more equipped to find the connection, community and purpose we’re longing for. Perhaps you feel that sense of struggle, or are feeling unmoored from the person you really are. Perhaps you're looking for support as you grow and find your way.

I offer person-centred CBT for people who want to better understand their difficulties and feel ready to engage in support to make positive change. You may be experiencing a new difficulty or perhaps it's something that has been present for many years. You might have some specific goals for change or maybe you hope to develop some specific coping tools to use in everyday life. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, PTSD, bi-polar disorder, voice hearing and psychosis. I currently work at a University training CBT therapists and supervisors. In Oct 2022 I am training in EMDR, a therapy for treating trauma.

Whether you are curious to understand yourself and your behaviour in more depth, or in a place of despair, counselling can offer a safe space to be seen, heard, and understood. Together we can explore and understand feelings perhaps too confusing, conflicting, or overwhelming to do so alone. As we build our relationship and you feel safer to explore difficult issues, energy and space can be restored to grow new more satisfying and authentic ways of being with ourselves and others. I offer a warm, safe, robust, and psychologically informed collaborator with specialist interests in PND, ADHD and the mindbody connection.

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.

I offer a safe & confidential place for you to come and talk about anything in your life that may be causing you distress or confusion. I believe that counselling can benefit anyone; it can really help to talk to someone who is objective & professional. Often people come to counselling with no clear idea of what they want or how they feel. There is no expectation from me with regards to the issues you bring; counselling is your space & it is common for people to feel confused or unsure. My aim is to support you through the process & help you to better understand yourself & your struggles, so that you can move forward with your life.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Bristol 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 Bristol 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 Bristol, or Child Psychologists in Bristol.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Bristol 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 Bristol specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. 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.
