It’s when you sense, or realise, that things can’t remain the same and yet you feel frozen, unable to act, and you don’t know what to do. A personal crisis might leave you feeling powerless and anxious. Then you find that the ways in which you generally deal with problems aren’t working: the people you’d usually turn to for support aren’t enough, they might be too involved with the issues you’re facing. You might also feel unwell. It’s not uncommon to feel anxious, depressed or emotionally fragile. This is when counselling can help. I offer Face to Face, Walk and Talk, Online and Telephone Counselling.

Firstly, welcome. Perhaps you’ve been living day-to-day and realise that you no longer recognise who you are and you’re not the person you used to be. You feel strongly that this isn’t you and you’re more than this. Maybe there has been a recent significant life change or it might be this way of being has slowly crept up and happened over time. You may have just tried to get on with things and think tomorrow will be better but nothing changes and you don’t know where to turn. Sometimes you feel low or anxious, you want things to change but you’re not sure where to begin and now your relationships, work, education are being affected.

Counselling is a safe space where you can talk about problems and process difficult emotions without shame or judgement. We often feel that we should be able to deal with our problems without others help. But it is often through sharing and opening up to others, that we can find the way to heal ourselves. Trauma, mental or emotional problems, disconnect us from ourselves and others. Sharing our pain and our story (in a relationship where it is held safely) can allow us to value, respect and have compassion for all parts of ourselves. This re-integration unblocks our creative/healing potential and our sense of purpose and meaning.

You may have tried to find ways of coping with difficult feelings and events but still have not found the satisfaction you seek. If you have an issue that needs resolving, it may help having someone outside the situation. I work with people who want to explore further any sense of feeling stuck, dissatisfied, unhappy or being in repeated patterns. Together we work out what helps or does not so that you can support yourself to feel better and move on. I understand you want to choose the best person for you and I welcome enquiries. I work in Whitchurch, South Bristol, and currently work On-Line or by telephone in the UK.

Whether you are curious to understand yourself and your behaviour in more depth, or in a place of despair, counselling can offer a safe space to be seen, heard, and understood. Together we can explore and understand feelings perhaps too confusing, conflicting, or overwhelming to do so alone. As we build our relationship and you feel safer to explore difficult issues, energy and space can be restored to grow new more satisfying and authentic ways of being with ourselves and others. I offer a warm, safe, robust, and psychologically informed collaborator with specialist interests in PND, ADHD and the mindbody connection.

Particular areas of interest include supporting people who are living with chronic ill-health, as well as those who seek to support others; whether it be as carers, activists, or in a professional capacity. However I enjoy working with a broad and diverse range of clients and am always interested in discovering how I can best support every new client, irrespective of their background, life experiences or presenting issue(s).

Throughout my time providing counselling and psychotherapy both online and in person, one of the main things people have valued about working with me is my open-mindedness. People often come to counselling afraid they won't be accepted, or that they'll be judged for things they think or do, but with me they quickly realise that isn't the case. I accept all my clients for who they are, the decisions they've made, and the experiences they've been through. My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is to offer a safe space where you can talk openly and where I can help support you in exploring whatever you're going through.

Counselling is a place to explore our thoughts, feelings and emotions. A chance to explore our life direction. An opportunity to pause and understand where we are and what is happening in our lives right now. It is a place to explore past and present events or traumas and a space to speak out loud thoughts that had previously been unspeakable.

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.

I offer a safe & confidential place for you to come and talk about anything in your life that may be causing you distress or confusion. I believe that counselling can benefit anyone; it can really help to talk to someone who is objective & professional. Often people come to counselling with no clear idea of what they want or how they feel. There is no expectation from me with regards to the issues you bring; counselling is your space & it is common for people to feel confused or unsure. My aim is to support you through the process & help you to better understand yourself & your struggles, so that you can move forward with your life.

Looking for a therapist can be an overwhelming experience; however, it is already a good step in your journey. You may be needing to be listened to or seeking support for a particular challenge. Emotional pain and mental distress need a space to be explored and processed and therapy can offer a safe environment for this.Counseling and psychotherapy can provide an opportunity to be in a safe space where you can be listened to by someone who is unbiased and non-judgmental. By sharing your story and your experiences, and building trust and openness in the relationship with your therapist, we can attempt to gain deeper understanding.
