I’m an experienced therapist with dual Masters level qualifications in both Dance Movement Psychotherapy, and Family & Systemic Psychotherapy.
Perhaps you are struggling to communicate your needs within a particular relationship in your life; or feel “stuck” in repetitive communication patterns with others. Perhaps you have been struggling with your own mental health, and are noticing how this is impacted by, and impacts upon your position in certain close relationships. As an individual, couple, or family , I can explore with you different ways of understanding and communicating about those things which may be troubling you. I believe that therapy can help us to tap into our own resources and solutions to problems which maybe feel more difficult to discover alone.

Relationships can be complicated and when they are not going well, they can lead to stress, anxiety, low mood, isolation and disconnection. We can work together to understand how and why these difficulties may have arisen and what needs to change. This may be the relationship you have with yourself (perhaps issues with self esteem, confidence, anxiety, sadness or uncertainty about your future). It might be the relationship you have with family members (where there might be tension, illness, parenting difficulties) or with your partner (where you might be struggling with disconnection, infidelity, separation).

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.

Because of my background, people may come to me particularly wanting straightforwardness or an understanding of health or family concerns, or with emotional distress/anxiety/depression, or learning difficulties.
If you are the one who usually copes and supports others, it can be difficult to come for help yourself. You may notice the impact on relationships, how you function at work, your ability to make decisions, stress levels and also your mood. You are welcome if you want support in getting confidence and capacity back in your life. I meet you for a free twenty minute consultation so you can get a sense of me before making any commitment. The majority of my work is online.

Although I mainly work with individuals one-to-one, I also have lots of experience in working with family groups where some or all members of the family meet together to overcome any difficulties.
As a clinical psychologist, I consider myself to be something of an 'emotional detective!' I work with individuals and families at their own pace to explore and develop a shared understanding of how their experiences (past and present), perspectives, and environmental factors may be contributing to a particular difficulty such as anxiety or depression, before identifying and sharing new solutions to help overcome the problem. Sometimes, the process of talking openly can in itself be transformative as new meanings and stories emerge; other times specific skills and strategies might be used to create positive change and difference.

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?

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.
