‘Be the silent watcher of your thoughts and behaviour. You are beneath the thinker. You are the stillness beneath the mental noise. You are the love and joy beneath the pain’ – Eckhart Tolle.

My Working Philosophy

I am an Integrative Therapist with a Humanistic core, working in a heartfelt, connected way and meeting my Clients where they want to be met.

I believe in paying attention to body and mind, heightening awareness and stepping into the whole experience. This way of working heightens a person’s awareness and can gift you the opportunity to step fully into a deeper experience.

Working with the mind, body and heart in a therapeutic space can mean integrating various ways of working, these might include;

  • Traditional talking therapy
  • Creative writing
  • Movement
  • Breath awareness
  • Visualisation work
  • Ways of expressing yourself creatively

The foundation of the work being the therapeutic relationship itself.

Who am I?

I am a Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have regular supervision and I am committed to ongoing growth through professional development, I am currently attending workshops inviting a Body and mind connection, looking more deeply at the whole experience we as people may have. My own pathway of self-discovery continues to be guided by meditation, creativity, nature, poetry and drumming.

I have experience of working in various areas: eating disorders, depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, gender and sexual diversity, relationship issues, low self-esteem, abuse and addiction.

My endless curiosity around different theories, philosophies and techniques within Counselling and Psychotherapy, means that my learning and development is a life-long process, I believe that the more I know, experience, feel and understand, the more flexibility I can offer my work with clients, ensuring that the therapeutic space is the most beneficial to the individual rather than me enforcing a certain way of working upon you.

I am happy to work with people on a weekly of fortnightly basis.

I offer affordable Long-term Therapeutic work and Short-term affordable Counselling in Bristol.
