Person-centred counselling is all about the person as an individual, encouragement to explore feelings, grow, discover potential and self acceptance.

In my personal life, I was going through a really difficult time and the whole experience of becoming a person-centred counsellor was life changing. I learned so much about myself and grew from a life situation that may have otherwise broken me.

I practiced at a local hospice as a grief counsellor, and at two other counselling agencies working with adults with a variety of life issues. It was a brilliant experience and opened my eyes to the power of the therapeutic relationship. I started to study other modalities to integrate into my practice, such as cognitive-behavioural therapy and mindfulness. Just before the pandemic, I started to work in an independent school for young people with special education needs, traumatic pasts and a struggle to function in main stream education. I started as a therapeutic music coach and my practice has developed into creative counselling, including music and art, all based on that magic ingredient…. ‘the relationship’.
I am working to build this practice as something that will really resonate with young people.

I am currently working in schools in Bristol and Gloucestershire for Teens in Crisis. Its great to be back to face to face counselling and the pandemic has definitely left a lot of young people really struggling with their mental health. I am based in Bristol and Malvern and also working in my private practice.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
