Key Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

I am a counsellor and coach based in Wells, Somerset. I have recently completed my PhD at the University of Bristol researching how we approach fun affects our behaviour both at work and at home. I completed my Masters degree at the University of Bristol in 2010 where I developed a counselling model which, with some adaptations, still provides the framework for my conversational, systems focused approach, to working with my clients today. My main integrated counselling training emphasised working with clients in time constrained settings, which really means providing effective short-term (about six-ten weeks) counselling.

In my 15 years of experience, I have worked with hundreds of patients from all walks of life, which has provided with a deep insight and a practical view of the problems the people are facing in their daily lives; whether at work or at home. While I specialise in dealing with conflict and psychological abuse (such as workplace bullying, domestic abuse, marriage breakdowns) I do offer wider counselling support for issues such as depression, anxiety, loneliness and any other issues that are impacting your mental health and daily life.

I work with both private clients (individually or as couples) and a wide range of organisations both as a counsellor and a consultant.
