I was a counsellor with Cruse Bereavement Care for five years and a volunteer counsellor in the Staff Occupational Health department of a hospital.
As well as being a counsellor, I work part time in the First Response team which is the front door to services for Bristol children and their families. The team deals with safeguarding, child protection concerns and family support needs.
I have a positive outlook on life and am warm and down to earth.
My role is to offer you confidential sessions where you feel comfortable to talk to me about anything, whether it’s your current situation that is troubling you, or something that happened a long time ago.
Counselling is usually once a week and I offer both short term and long term counselling; there is value in both. If you are looking for a more flexible, less regular arrangement, we can discuss that too. I also offer telephone counselling.
Some people find that after a few counselling sessions, they have what they need to move forwards with their life. Others find that, once they begin to explore one area of their life, they are ready to talk about other issues and they decide to continue for longer term, open-ended counselling.
