Feeling safety in a complex world is no mean feet. Childhood, historic, or current experiences, interacting/reacting with the complexities brought about by the pandemic, can exhaust any capacity for resilience. maybe you're a parent/carer of children transitioning from the intensity of lockdown to the uncertainty of the easing of restrictions? Is this further complicated by returning to education settings for children with Autism, ADHD, FASD, SPD, trauma and attachment? Maybe you are a foster care or adoptive parent wondering how to rebalance the attachment bond after the intensity of lockdown, recalibrating interfamilial dynamics?

As well as working with adults, I have a background in youth work & counselling adolescents (Year 10 and above). Please note that I work with people aged 18+ in my Private Practice.

I help women overcome trauma, domestic abuse and sexual abuse, so that they can fall in love with themselves and with their ideal partner, reclaim their confidence, and never have to endure harmful relationships ever again. Are you struggling with flashbacks or nightmares, feeling embarrassed about someone mistreating you or having moments when you suddenly feel numb, angry or tearful out of nowhere? If yes, then therapy will help you stabilise your mood, feel safe again and rediscover pleasure in daily life. Even if you have had therapy before, specialist support will get you from where you are to where you want to be.

Hi - are you feeling stuck? Repeating the same patterns of behaviour again and again in your life or relationship and going round in circles? Do you feel a lack of love/respect with your partner or someone close to you? Is sex or intimacy an issue but you’re not quite sure how to approach it? Perhaps Covid or life changes have increased your anxiety and the trust has gone or you're feeling sad, angry, lonely, misunderstood, stressed, numb, or just not sure what you feel anymore?!

I believe in the power of opening up, and while I will draw on theory and knowledge to support each individual client, I am led by the client and their individual needs. An ideal client is someone who wishes to build a therapeutic space alongside me, allowing me to facilitate safety and build trust. I am experienced at working with complex mental health needs, therefore I begin by creating a formulation of the problem with the client, and collaboratively establish their needs and personal goals. i am interested in helping others to learn about themselves through relational dynamics they experience.

I believe the most important thing in counselling is to develop a relationship of trust and confidence between therapist and client. I provide clients with a safe, confidential and warm space for them to reflect on the challenges they bring. Coming to counselling can be a daunting step; as a result it is that much more important to come into an accepting, empathic, non-judgemental environment. I take the view that there is no single approach that can be helpful to you in all situations. This gives more choice of how you want to look at your issues and creates flexibility to tailor therapy to your individual needs and aspirations.

Counselling provides a confidential and safe space to talk about anything that may be worrying you. It can often help you to understand more about the difficult or troubling thoughts that can be a common experience at any time in our lives. My aim is to listen attentively, in confidence, and to be non-judgemental. I offer personal support to enable my clients to explore their inner-selves and their feelings in order to help them to achieve personal growth.

For the past 18 years I have specialised in trauma and addiction, working with people within community-based organisations, schools, criminal justice systems, the NHS and Private Practice. I have a particular interest in how people make sense of their experiences. A particular lens through which this is viewed is narrative. This aims to be a respectful and non-blaming practice in which there is a collaboration to find the most satisfying story to live a preferred life. A pace for this work will be negotiated and agreed at the start and reviewed in each session or, when required.

Humanistically recognising the needs of an individual ,we see how trauma can be held at a very deep level. Working from the story of an individuals early negative & positive childhood experiences and using Integrative therapy in a number of ways to help the process of getting to one's core beliefs, helps to create a safe space for them to explore and release old patterns. This happens by building a trust with the client to allow their vulnerability to come through. Then, looking at the blocks or defences, via counselling and body Psychotherapy, a unique holistic approach to wellbeing, allows the journey back to health.

I have worked as a counsellor for many years and am both passionate and motivated as I was in the beginning. I am particularly passionate about working people who have low self-esteem as I believe this covers so many areas/issues in life. As a woman in my 50’s with various life experience this allows me to empathise and have compasion for others. Having come from a multi-cultural family with Irish roots this gives me a greater understanding of cultural diversity and a sense of belonging. I am a spiritual person who has an interest in mindfulness and Yoga.

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.
