About my practice 

There are many reasons we seek counselling throughout life. Perhaps you’re experiencing anxiety, low mood or depression. You may be going through a difficult break-up, struggling to cope with loss or battling addictions. You may feel strange or that something is just not right. The spectrum of personal difficulties is vast, but there is no need to go through it alone. Some of us feel we must toughen up or just get on with it and we end up closing off from ourselves and others. When we avoid our own suffering, it often builds and intensifies leading to more unhelpful coping strategies and unhappiness. Whatever it is you bring to counselling, I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and compassionate space to explore, uncover and unpack what is going on for you. Through my therapeutic experience, I believe it is within this space that personal growth, inner wisdom and authenticity can emerge. 


  • 20-minute Phone call or zoom session to discuss working together - Free. There is no expectation for you to continue after this and I encourage that you take your time in deciding if I am the right counsellor for you. 
  • My fee is £50 for 50-minute sessions. The fee works on a sliding scale depending on what you can afford. This is discussed and negotiated during our initial 20-minute session. 
  • I have a limited number of reduced fee sessions for those on low income or are unemployed. 


I work face to face from sycamore house in Kingswood, Bristol. 

I also work via zoom or telephone.
