I am a professionally qualified Counsellor, working in Central Bristol and Cardiff.
My approach to counselling is warm, down to earth, encouraging and supportive. I can help you find answers, understand yourself better and help you to create change in your life.
I integrate different skills from different Counselling approaches, depending on what you need as an individual.
I use Cognitive Behavioural Techniques (CBT). Together we will identify any negative thoughts and beliefs that you may have about yourself and look at how they influence how you feel and behave. I may give you exercises to do that will help challenge those thoughts and show how you may generate new ones that are more helpful to you.
Above all my counselling approach is collaborative which can help with the following issues: negative thinking, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, anger management, addiction, loss, personal or professional crises, low self confidence, stress, personal and professional issues.
My overall goal is to ensure you feel safe and comfortable in the sessions and that you feel supported in whatever the issues are that are contributing to your distress.
