Are you feeling hopeless, low, anxious, lost or just not quite right? Struggling with imposter syndrome, overwhelmed or unfulfilled? I can offer you a calm, compassionate, non-judgemental space to explore whatever's on your mind or in your heart. I believe that you deserve an approach to therapy that's truly as unique as you are, so I never use 'a one size fits all' approach. Instead, I draw from a wide array of tools, approaches and theories - always working alongside you to find out what's best for you. Whether there's a certain event that's brought you to counselling, or things just don't feel 'quite right', counselling can help.

I have experience supporting people with the following: Alzheimer’s – Anxiety – Bereavement – Low Self-Esteem – OCD – Panic Attacks – Stress – Suicidal Thoughts - Trauma.
Are you feeling so overwhelmed that you feel out of your depth? Or experiencing a sense of loss, unable to cope? Fear is our worst enemy, and we will try and find a way of taking back control. If you feel you are struggling there is a strength in reaching out for support. Counselling helps you to gain a better understanding of self through the therapeutic process, and I believe we are all unique and have the potential to change, therefore develop a belief in your ability to cope. You will begin to make sense of the past and begin to recognise your true self.

I am an experienced counsellor working in Thornbury, South Gloucestershire. You might be seeking counselling for the first time or returning to therapy. We all experience disconcerting feelings and upsetting concerns at some point in our lives. The best way to begin therapy is to arrange an introductory session to find out why you need counselling and how we can work together. There is no charge for the first session. As the relationship of trust and respect develops between client and counsellor, you will become empowered to explore daunting emotions through a non-judgemental, client-centred approach.

Welcome to Repertoire Counselling. At a certain point life feels overwhelming, we struggle to carry and understand the weight of our feelings, leading us to feel lost, stuck, alone, anxious, angry and fighting through life all by ourselves. My journey to becoming a therapist emerged out of painful experiences, which I am grateful because I love helping my clients to navigate their way through all that life has to throw at them. Talking to someone outside of your situation, who is not a family member or a friend can help in gaining relief, self-understanding, self-acceptance and help to build resilience and envision a way forward.

My Doctoral training and over ten years of counselling experience has taught me that there's always more to a problem than its headline. We are complicated people with unique contexts, and if therapy is to be useful, we need to be truly seen and understood. I draw on the breadth of my training to work responsively, flexibly and with the root of the issue. I often work with people struggling with low mood, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, relationship issues, and unhelpful coping such as self-injury and skin picking. I work well with people who want to develop a deeper understanding of their problems to make lasting, meaningful change.

I wanted to give you a warm welcome and acknowledge your effort in taking this first step. It is not easy to start therapy; overcoming any fear you may feel, where to search, which therapist to choose… I would like to invite you to stop for a moment. Close your eyes slowly. Take a deep breath. How do you feel? Where in your body do you feel it? Sometimes life presents us with difficulties that can leave our world upside down. We can end up feeling anxious, depressed, angry, frustrated… Sometimes we just experience a lack of meaning and can’t connect with the life force that makes us feel alive.

I also work with clients who have addictions, social phobia, depression, anxiety, panic, low self esteem, OCD, trauma, PTSD, Functional Neurological Disorders, chronic pain and chronic fatigue.
Choosing a therapist can be a stressful process, and it's difficult to decide which kind of therapy to try. Many people find it helpful to work with a therapist who has trained in more than one therapy, who can switch to a different therapy when needed, and who can tailor sessions according to your needs. You can have a phone consultation with me to discuss what you are looking for and ask questions. 16 years experience in supporting neurodivergent clients (with ADHD, autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia or other difficulties) led me to further training in autism, and specialised CBT and ACT for ADHD and emotional regulation problems.

Does you best simply never feel enough? Do you worry endlessly about what others think of you? Perhaps you spend days and weeks dwelling on mistakes you've made and your fear you'll always end up a failure? Depression and anxiety will do that to you but the important thing to remember is that these thoughts (however powerful) are just that - thoughts. Thoughts aren't facts and there's no reason you have to fall victim to them anymore.
