I have been involved with Herbal Medicine for many years both as a manufacturer and as a Medical Herbalist. Having graduated with a first class degree in Herbal Medicine, I am continually updating my practice with new research and ideas from many different medical traditions and disciplines, keeping an open eye and open mind for what seems most appropriate and most effective for my patients.
I believe that, as social beings, we need other people in our lives to help us make sense of who we are. When we feel vulnerable or confused, it can be hard to ask for help from those closest to us. Counselling can provide the space we need to live out not just what it is to survive, but what it is to feel alive and to thrive.
My approach is humanistic and relational. I use various techniques, including CBT, and, where appropriate, I find working creatively and experientially with clients can also be highly effective. My goal is to provide the necessary conditions by which clients can gain a better understanding of who they are and what they need to do to realise their true potential.
I am a BACP accredited Counsellor, living and working in central Bristol. I am listed on the new BACP Central health Register.
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 am a BAcC registered Acupuncturist working in Bristol and Exeter. I use a holistic approach to health, focusing on you rather than just your illness to help you get back to health and wellness.
I am a Teacher and Practitioner member of the Shiatsu Society of the UK (MRSS T) and a member of the Healing Trust (NFSH), qualified to practise both Spiritual healing and Reiki. For nearly 30 years I have been learning from and facilitating many people?s journeys into health and self-empowerment.
I discovered the Alexander Technique in 2006 while living in France. I had slipped a disk in my lower back and was forced to lie on my back for two months. During this time I was sent a book about the technique which completely changed the way I was thinking about how to go about getting better.
The Alexander Technique is about rediscovering your own natural balance and co-ordination, both mental and physical.
