Do you worry that you're a failure or not good enough? Do you feel low or anxious? We all experience thoughts and feelings like these at some point, but perhaps you've noticed a greater impact on your relationships and work and this stops you from living the life you want. I understand that it can be overwhelming to speak to a professional about how you’re feeling. I'm an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist providing therapy for a range of difficulties including anxiety, low mood, stress, burnout, loss/life transitions and 'imposter syndrome'. My approach is warm, non-judgemental and compassionate.

I work with helping clients with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and panic attacks.
Perhaps you feel lost, ungrounded, unable to understand your emotional way of being and always seem to be at conflict with yourself and others in your life. Perhaps you suffer from anxiety, stress, OCD, addictions, lack of self-worth. Perhaps you are grieving a loss of a loved one, relationship break-up or a job. In these times of stress and anxiety, one needs to find one’s inner core strength to be able to be fully grounded and able to fully move into life with clarity and focus. With my counselling skills and our teamwork, you can become the person you were born to be.

I welcome clients facing a wide range of difficulties in their lives and offer a safe, non-judgemental space to listen and help you find ways to move on. You can bring all your feelings - whether anger, loneliness, anxiety, fear, shame, simply being stuck - and together we can make sense of where these feelings come from. In doing so, we can reduce their hold on you.

We all experience difficulties at one time or another. It could be that our relationships aren’t all we'd like them to be. Or perhaps we feel anxious, depressed, lonely, or we’re grieving a loss. Perhaps we behave in ways that we'd rather not, or that we don't understand. Or maybe life has lost its meaning, we've lost our sense of direction, feel stuck, or just don't know who we are any more. Counselling offers a safe, confidential space in which to explore such issues in relationship with someone who is skilled, non-judgemental, and really there for you. A space in which to come to terms with things, and allow them to change.

I work with women who don’t feel ‘good enough’ to realise their worth and discover their true confidence. Are you overwhelmed by life? Filled with anxiety and constantly waste your energy worrying you’re not good enough or disappointing people? Maybe you can’t quite put your finger on what the problem is, but you know something isn’t quite right. Perhaps you’ve even lost your sense of who you are. You don’t have to feel like this. When life feels too much, we all need a helping hand. Let me be that helping hand. Together we can work towards confidence, calmness, self-esteem and improved relationships in every area of your life.

I am interesting in the body and our relationship with our physical selves, including how emotions and anxiety manifest physically.
I am a BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor and mainly practice Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). ISTDP is an emotion-focused, trauma-informed and attachment-based approach with very positive research outcomes. Some people begin therapy clear about what they want help with, others need some assistance in understanding their difficulty. I provide a safe space for clients to better understand their behaviour and experiences by making links between the present difficulty and the past. We also work together in the session to help you explore new ways of relating to yourself and your problem.

I am a HCPC accredited Clinical Psychologist working in the Bristol area. I have over ten years experience working with adults, adolescents and children using evidence-based therapies to address their psychological difficulty, increase emotional awareness and move towards a calmer, more fulfilled life. My experience working with clients has emphasised to me the importance of curiosity, honesty and compassion in psychological work, where time can be taken to explore challenges. This therefore underpins my practice; I strive to create an environment which promotes honest reflective thinking in order to facilitate psychological change.
