Location: Bristol

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor working from home in Bristol. I know how hard it is to take those first steps when looking for a counsellor, trying to decide which counsellor sounds like they will be right for you while not feeling judged or that your concerns are not worthy of talking about. Through working together I can offer you a safe, confident space to explore your thoughts and feelings and talk through any issues you feel you need some help with. I believe it is important to feel listened to so you feel you are being heard. I can offer you this while relating to you on a human level with warmth and empathy.
I have experience with anxiety, depression, anger management, relationships and bereavement. I feel very passionate about helping people to make changes for the better in their lives, however small. My aim is to create a safe place for you to be heard and a place where you can be yourself. I will give you time to express yourself the way you need to.
I am experienced in talking therapies using a humanistic approach which will be personal to your needs. I am a warm, caring person who will walk alongside you on your journey. Working together we will look at your views from your perspective, explore your feelings and help you move forward. Your voice is important, my message to you is you will be heard.
