Experience & Qualifications

 

Experience

I have always had a passion for supporting people to heal and flourish. This led me on the path to become a qualified counsellor in my 20s.

I have many years of supporting people not only as a counsellor but also working in the Health and Social Care sectors. I have worked within the Ambulance Service on patient transport; in Sexual Health Clinic giving advice and support on sexual health concerns and also within a Self-injury Support service, supporting women via text, email and web chat. 

Alongside running my private practice I have worked as a counsellor for many Mental Health Organisation in Bristol. One included working on a project where we provided counselling sessions using a CBT approach in older people's homes who were facing problems such as loss of confidence, worry and isolation. 

Issues I can help with and not limited to are...

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • 'Stuckness'

  • Loss sense of purpose or direction

  • Low Self-esteem and Confidence

  • Relationship problems

  • Dyslexia

  • Bereavement and loss

  • Sexuality

  • Sexual Health

  • Stress

  • Career 

  • Any change in life

  • Exploring self/finding self

  • Loneliness

  • Family problems

  • Bullying

to name a few...

 

Welcome to reach out no matter how big or small the problem.

"People are just as wonderful as sunsets if I can let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "soften the orange a little on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple along the base, and use a little more pink in the cloud colour." I don't do that. I don't try to control a sunset. I watch it with awe as it unfolds."
