Location: Bristol

I am trained and qualified as a Counsellor and a Dramatherapist which means I can work using a traditional talking therapy approach or can work non verbally using art, story, myth and creative methods to access the imagination and the inner world of the client. This is particularly helpful when it is difficult to find words to express feelings.

I have worked with adults, young people and children and have experience in the following areas: substance use, bereavement, anxiety, depression, Post Natal depression, low self-esteem and lack of confidence, body image issues, relationship issues, trauma and abuse and personal development work.
