I am a qualified integrative counsellor practising in Bristol.
I work with a wide range of issues and I specialise in addiction, shame-based issues, post-traumatic stress and related mental health issues. I have also helped clients with depression and anxiety.
My approach focusses on the quality of the client-counsellor relationship in order to create a therapeutic partnership of trust and compassion.
My training was mainly focussed on the person-centred and psychodynamic approaches, and included elements of gestalt and transactional analysis. I have also completed trainings at the Bristol Drugs Project and The SWAN project in Motivational Interviewing and Solution-Focussed Therapy.
My background is in support work, I have over 10 years experience of working with very vulnerable clients (mainly ex-homeless) with problems such as addiction, depression, personality disorders, anger issues, OCD, PTSD, sexual abuse, etc…
