The most important part of any psychological therapy is the quality of the relationship between the client and therapist. Feeling heard, understood and accepted form the cornerstone of effective therapy. I pride myself on being able to develop a trusting rapport from people from all backgrounds. I work to enable you to develop your own resources and skills. Only we can change our own lives - but we can't do it alone. Therapy is a journey with a therapist as a fellow traveler. I welcome people of all ethnicities, sexual orientations and identities.

As a psychologist I can help with a wide range of issues, such as low mood, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, improving communication, low self-esteem, chronic health conditions, physical pain, trauma and PTSD, stress, and bereavement. However, I do not see people as categories or labels; it is likely that you are looking into therapy because you have a mix of difficulties, or it may be because you don't know what the problem even is. There may not even be any problems; you may just want space to reflect and make changes. Whatever your needs, you're welcome to discuss them with me to see if I can help.

You are not broken. You may be experiencing emotional injury, and/or psychological distress, but this does not communicate brokenness. On the contrary, this communicates an emotional BUILD. You might be struggling with symptoms of anxiety, depression, women's issues, trauma, grief, loss, low self-esteem, low self-worth, etc. It may even be likely that you have learned how to live in a way that attempts to guard you from any additional emotional injuries. Essentially, your life experiential may have taught you how to build a wall of emotional defense, but that is not your truest self

I have been lucky enough in my career to date to work with some incredibly inspiring and brave individuals who have been at a crossroads in their life. Sometimes making change felt frightening or impossible due to past beliefs, stuck patterns of behaviour or limiting thought processes. Others were struggling to move on after devastation, illness, loss or identity crisis. I believe it is a privilege to be able to guide those in need at these times due to the courage and vulnerability they show. They are asking from the heart for a new beginning - to break from the past, not feel scared by the future and live truly in the present.

Dialectical (DBT) Counsellors
If you're looking to find dialectical behaviour counselling in Bristol or for a Bristol DBT psychologist, you can find Bristol dialectical behaviour therapists who use DBT therapy to provide clients with new skills to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships.

What is DBT Counselling?
DBT was originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder. However, research shows that DBT therapy in Bristol has also been used successfully to treat people experiencing depression, bulimia, binge-eating, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic-stress disorder, and substance abuse. DBT skills are thought to have the capability of helping those who wish to improve their ability to regulate emotions, tolerate distress and negative emotion, be mindful and present in the given moment, and communicate and interact effectively with others.

How do I find a Bristol DBT therapist?
DBT assumes that effective treatment must pay as much attention to the behavior and experience of providers working with clients as it does to clients’ behavior and experience. Thus, treatment of the providers is an important part of any Bristol DBT counselling program, and therapists should practice the skills themselves. They need to know basic behavior therapy techniques and DBT treatment strategies. Look for a Bristol DBT counsellor or therapist with specialized training and experience in DBT.

Who are the best Bristol DBT Psychologists?
The best DBT treatment typically consists of individual therapy sessions and DBT skills groups. Find the best DBT therapists in Bristol who offer individual therapy sessions, ensuring that all therapeutic needs are being addressed. The best DBT counsellors in Bristol will help the patient stay motivated, apply the DBT skills within daily life, and address obstacles that might arise over the course of treatment.
