I offer therapy from a dedicated therapy room at my home in Portishead, North Somerset BS20.  The space is tranquil and private with views over the Lake Grounds across the sea to Wales. It can be helpful to take some time after sessions for reflection and there are pleasant walks along the coast and nearby benches in the Lake Grounds.

What happens next

Your initial appointment is an opportunity for both of us to get a sense of how it would be to work together. The aim is also to arrive at a shared understanding of the difficulties that bring you to counselling and what you are hoping to change. You are never under any obligation to continue with me and if I feel that I am not best placed to help I will hope to signpost you to a more appropriate service. If you do decide to work with me I usually suggest committing to a short number of agreed sessions and then review progress.

Online sessions

Online sessions are an option if for any reason you cannot make it here.
