Do you need someone to talk to?


We all could do with some support from time to time

Whether it’s your mental health, relationships, or life changes,


I believe that somewhere inside, you know best how to right yourself


You can decide what we talk about and we will go at your pace

Together we can create a relationship where you feel seen and learn to be more in touch with yourself and others.


By offering you my warmth and presence, I can help you look at your life and the underlying causes of problems. I’m ready to meet you as you are and listen to you in a way that helps you feel more yourself again. We’ve got as long as you need.​




I use an embodied approach called Focusing because understanding what our body is telling us, can help make sure we are with the thing that really needs our attention. We might check in with your bodily ‘felt sense’ of situations in your life so that we can gently listen to your body’s wisdom and let this guide your decisions


When I hit a rough period in my life, I needed to learn skills to better manage my own pain and shape the life I wanted going forward. That’s why I incorporate powerful body-based practices such as Mindfulness, Focusing, and Non-Violent Communication.


My approach brings together Person-centred and Experiential practice, so you can feel your experience change.


I’ve seen my clients become more in touch with their own sense of a situation, more accepting of themselves and their experience, and more self-determined and empowered.

You can work with me in-person in Bristol BS5, 

online on Zoom, or by phone from anywhere in the UK

I work from my home near St Marks Road in Easton. You will find parking available in nearby streets, or we are just off the Bristol-Bath Cycle Path and Stapleton Road Train Station. 

Opting for an online or phone appointment sometimes enables you to take up an appointment sooner than face-to face.

Online Counselling

Many people find online counselling a practical alternative to working face-to face.

We use Zoom for online meetings, or talk on the phone.


You can access this anywhere you have a private and safe place to talk. This works well for people working from home, or taking a lunch-break during work.

You have all the benefits of seeing each other but with the convenience of being in your own place.
