How Psychotherapy and Counselling Can Help You

Visiting this site probably means that you are experiencing some difficulty or pain in your life and/or are looking for ways to live with greater contentment and fulfilment. My aim as a psychotherapist and counsellor is to provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental relationship within which you can explore these issues and come to your own conclusions and ways forward.

My diverse trainings and experience mean that I can help you with most of life’s issues and problems, including:

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Depression and feeling low
  • Confidence and self-esteem
  • Relationship issues
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Trauma and abuse
  • Addictions
  • Feeling stuck in old patterns of thinking, feeling and/or behaviour
  • Employment and career issues, redundancy and retirement
  • Life stage and transitions

I also have specialist training and experience in working with:

  • Sex, sexuality, LGBTQ and gender issues
  • Working with men
  • Physical illness, including cancer, HIV, MS and ME, pain and disability
  • Meaning and purpose in life
  • Spirituality and transpersonal issues

My goal is to help you to understand yourself better and to live life more authentically and to your greatest potential. Psychotherapy and counselling are normally most effective if we can commit to meet regularly, usually weekly, although I can offer some flexibility, depending on need. I can also offer short and long-term contracts, again negotiable depending on need and goals. We can discuss whether counselling or psychotherapy is more appropriate for you when we meet.

To make an appointment or to ask further questions:

All communications are treated as confidential. I offer a free 30 minutes initial meeting for us both to decide whether to work together. Current availability is mainly daytime but does vary so feel free to contact me for details. I operate a waiting list, when appropriate, or can recommend colleagues if I am not available.

Finding the right counsellor or psychotherapist can sometimes feel daunting and be time-consuming so do feel free to call for an initial talk and possible meeting.

I work from a designated therapy room in Long Ashton. It is 5 minutes walk from bus stops, buses running every 15 minutes from the centre of Bristol and journeys taking approximately 20 minutes.

There is street parking throughout the day on nearby roads for those coming by car, roughly 15 minutes from Bristol Centre, and the Festival Way cycle-track runs continuously from Bristol City Centre to Long Ashton.
