My Approach as a Therapist.

I trained at the Optimum Health Clinic in London where I was mentored by Alex Howard who blends elements of traditional psychotherapy with newer approaches including mindfulness. In recent years I have been mentored by Dr Keith Blevens. I often help people who are finding life difficult or struggling with anxiety, depression or negative thoughts. We can work together if you are new to therapy or have tried psychotherapy with little success. I work as a therapist in Bristol and online via Skype, phone, or Zoom.

Read more About Sessions

In the therapy sessions, we will work to first really understand what is happening for you, and then help you think differently and have new perspectives. We will explore what happens in your mind when you struggle and what happens when you are effective and feel good. Understanding this will help you struggle less and spend more time in a better state of mind. Together we would look at understanding human resilience and the mind more deeply.

Learn More About Me

I trained in an innovative approach to therapy that combined elements of psychotherapy with newer methods including mindfulness. In recent years, I have been supported and mentored by two leading psychologists, Dr. Dicken Bettinger and Dr. Keith Blevens. My understanding of how people work psychologically has deepened; they have taught me how to more effectively help people change and support them as a therapist.

Experience as an Therapist

In my sessions, I draw on my experience of supporting people in many different circumstances as well as my own personal insights. I used to struggle with life and have overcome my own emotional challenges including anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. Working for the last 8 years as a therapist (6 in Bristol), I have had the privilege to enable many people to do the same. This experience makes me very optimistic that anyone can learn to change and have a happier life. We can do sessions in central Bristol or online over Zoom or over Skype.

Some of the people I have helped as a therapist include those struggling with:

  • anxiety and panic attacks
  • depression and feeling down
  • anger
  • addiction
  • stress and overwhelm
  • relationship difficulties
  • have tried psychotherapy
  • want therapy in Bristol
