About Me

I am a Registered Accredited BACP counsellor and psychotherapist based in Bristol, and I run groups using writing for wellbeing. I am a tutor on an MSc in Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes course; I've worked as a tutor for Network Training and Counselling; run courses with a colleague for the Orchard Foundation; and contributed to the Medical Humanities course for medics in Bristol. I work as a Supervisor for other counsellors.

There's a short video clip of me here...

Over the years I've worked in the media, education, the NHS and been the home parent to my two sons.

I've been writing on and off for most of my life, including doing an MA in Creative Writing. However, recent life events led me to a change of direction resulting in my work using creative writing therapeutically, and my practice as a counsellor.

My personal exploration has included all sorts of writing, poetry, fiction, screenplays; a spiritual journey; and an emotional and personal path that has included the death of my father, and severe illness within my family. I continue to discover more about life and being human every day.

GDPR privacy notice

My practice has off-street parking immediately in front of the house, or space to securely lock a bicycle out of sight. I am near Redland Station, and the 8/9 bus route. Whiteladies Road and Gloucester Road are within easy walking distance.
