I am a HCPC-registered and BPS chartered Clinical Neuropsychologist, specialising in offering cognitive assessment and therapy to individuals with neurological conditions. Often, the impact of neurological symptoms can be uncertain, bringing up feelings of loss and anxiety. It can be difficult to adjust your lifestyle to the challenges that present, leading to feeling disconnected from what is most important. I pride myself on being conscientious and integral, offering a safe therapeutic space to explore what feels most difficult right now.

June 2024 I am now taking on new clients All of us have times in our lives when we feel the need for some extra support. Perhaps we are lacking confidence and self-esteem, going through relationship difficulties, feeling depressed, anxious, experiencing stressful life changes such as bereavement, divorce, or redundancy. Perhaps now is the right time to address long-standing issues – or maybe we find ourselves at a crossroads and feel unsure of ourselves and of which way to turn.

We all have times in life when things seem to get on top of us. We may feel confused, anxious or depressed. Sometimes it feels like we are just going round in circles, getting nowhere in particular. Having someone to talk to can lighten the load and this is often easier with someone other than family or friends.

This world is a fast-moving, pressured and sometimes, bewildering place. We are expected to navigate it while carrying the heavy weight of the opinions and expectations of others. No wonder that we can become overwhelmed, worried and sad. I can’t (sadly) change the world or your experiences in it, but together, we might be able to find a way for you to move forward, feeling more in control, more confident and hopefully, happier.

What happened in your childhood? How does it affect you now? I work with adults to overcome childhood/teenage adversities to find their confidence and build self-esteem. You might be feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed. It could be feeling unworthy of another person's love, feelings of shame or of being punished for some trust or over trusting other people. Each day can become an internal battle as you feel doubt yourself, maybe loath yourself, just can't get organised and decision leave you exhausted. If this resonates with you, email me or check out my website to book a free 15-minute phone call/zoom chat.

I have extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, stress, abuse, trauma and bereavement amongst other issues.
Life can be stressful, painful and throw us unexpected challenges. Alternatively we may feel something is missing but are unsure what. Or we may be asking ourselves Who Am I? Whatever the reason for coming to therapy, we need to feel deeply heard, understood and supported. I offer 1:1 face to face counselling and psychotherapy from my private therapy room in South Bristol, off the Wells Road. I offer a free 30 minute initial session which gives us a chance to get to know each other and decide whether we want to work together. I charge from £55 per session. Concessionary rates are offered, feel free to enquire for further details.

We'll explore what's troubling you and who you are in relation to it- whether it's relationship difficulties, abuse, depression, anxiety, disordered eating, addiction, grief, loss or stress.
We can all struggle at points in our lives. Sometimes the source might feel obvious to us or maybe we might have begun to notice things have been 'off' for a while and it's hard to make sense of. We can be left feeling confused, lonely, disconnected from ourselves and unfulfilled in our lives. It's hard to understand what's going on, maybe things start to feel out of control or tough to manage alone. Naturally, we want to move forward to a place we can be ourselves in the world.

We all want to enjoy the lives we have, not be bogged down in self criticism, overwhelmed by emotions, stuck in spirals of negative thinking, or be haunted by the past. If you find yourself here because you're struggling with anxiety, depression, painful emotions, self criticism, or patterns of coping that are damaging your life and your relationships, then you're in the right place. Again and again I have seen the power of compassion in releasing people from the suffering that can come with these cycles. With the right support you too can take the courageous, and sometimes painful steps towards becoming the person you'd like to be.

Sometimes life can feel like a real struggle. Are your thoughts and feelings reducing your enjoyment of life and your relationships with those around you? Maybe you are experiencing stress or a ‘stuckness’; feelings of anxiety, uncertainty and overwhelm; perhaps you are living with a recent or past loss or relationship difficulties; or is it that a lack of purpose or direction in life is dragging you down? I am an integrative therapist which means that I use elements of different psychological ideas to inform the most appropriate way of working with you. A background in the creative arts enriches and supports my practice.
