I practice integrative therapy, using psychodynamic theory to offer relational therapy.
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 trained in Integrative Counselling: a person-centred approach, which puts you in the driving seat, along with psychodynamic (how the past affects the present) and CBT (how emotions, thoughts and actions are interlinked) approaches.
I am currently full and have a waiting list. Please check back on here as I will change this when availability changes. Are you struggling with one or multiple issues that are affecting your daily life? Do you dream of being free of them to enjoy life more and be more resilient? I offer a safe, confidential space to talk, feel, move and even draw your way through these issues. If you get overwhelmed by emotion when certain things happen, I can help you work out what's triggering you and find a way forward. Particular areas of interest include trauma work, depression and existential / spiritual questions.

I work in an integrative way, and find psychodynamic and relational approaches in particular offer great insight into how our past can live on in the present.
Whether you have recently experienced a crisis in life, or have a more enduring sense of something feeling wrong, I offer a compassionate space for you to explore whatever issue brings you to therapy. Beginning to talk about yourself and what you are dealing with may feel new or even unnerving, so I am always mindful to work with you at your own pace. In the process of therapy many different issues may come up for you, and the space provided by therapy allows us to work through these issues together.

I work from a relational and integrative approach drawing on a psychodynamic and person-centred approach.
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.

These may include humanistic, psychodynamic and occasionally CBT.
Are you feeling overwhelmed or confused by your feelings? Do you have things happening you would like to talk through? Do you have unresolved history you feel ready to look at and would like someone to support you in that? Counselling can help you to work through all of these things and help restore a balance to your feelings and life again. I have worked in depth with trauma, attachment issues, parenting difficulties, relationship problems, anxiety, depression, OCD and panic among many other things.

These might include CBT, EMDR, psychodynamic , person-centred, humanistic, mindfulness, and movement/body psychotherapy.
Are you feeling confused, lost, scared, overwhelmed by your thoughts and emotions? Many people experience the same. Psychotherapy can help you to understand what lies beneath these emotions and support you in bringing balance to your life. I am a psychotherapist with a wide range of experience working with clients (children, adolescents and adults) in various places. In particular, I have worked in-depth with complex trauma, attachment problems, clients who are in abusive relationships with their partners or family and problems related to the body; I use body techniques to help clients to self-regulate states of panic/anxiety.

I draw on person-centred, psychodynamic and trauma-informed approaches.
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.

I draw on humanistic, psychodynamic and mindfulness methods and am flexible - I will always aim to take my lead from your needs.
Counselling is for anyone and everyone. You might have a specific thing you want to work on – pain from your past or worries about the future. Or you might have a general sense that something is stuck, that this isn’t quite the life you’d expected. ​Counselling offers the opportunity for us to develop a creative partnership , where we can work together to explore both what is troubling you and your potential in life and to support you to find a sense of freedom to be your true self. Counselling is not an easy option, it can uncover painful feelings, but it can be a step on the way to feeling better and more at peace with yourself.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Bristol, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
