About Me

I am a qualified, BACP registered counsellor working in Bristol.

I developed an interest in counselling back in 2005 before going onto study for a BA (hon) Counselling and Society. Later I studied for a BACP accredited professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling, graduating in 2014.

Whilst studying for my diploma, I volunteered for Sesame Counselling Newport, where I stood as coordinator and secretary to the management committee. During this time I also worked in a therapeutic community, providing therapeutic support to adolescent girls who had a history of neglect, abuse and trauma. I also worked as a volunteer counsellor for the Southmead Project Bristol, a counselling service working with adult survivors of abuse. Both of these positions have given me the opportunity to develop a comprehensive understanding of the impact of abuse and how to work effectively with trauma.

After qualifying and taking a small amount of time out to travel, I returned to The Southmead Project where I now work part time alongside my private counselling practice. Within the project, I work with individuals who have had trauma as a result of abuse and are currently using drugs or alcohol problematically. This position allows me to continue my therapeutic work with trauma survivors as well as develop my work with addictions.

Qualifications 

Alongside my formal qualifications, I regularly attend workshops and training so to develop my professional practice.
