About me

Psychology has long held that the way we think and feel about ourselves profoundly influences our sense of self-worth and how we deal with life. I offer a safe space for self-exploration in the centre of Bath.

I have 17 years of professional experience working with anxiety, depression, stress, work-related and health problems, relationship and family issues, bereavement, low self-esteem, personal and emotional distress. I have considerable experience in the counselling of students having worked for 6 years in the student counselling service of Bath University.

I also see people, whose lives may or may not be pressured by immediate problems, but who wish to gain greater self-awareness through self-exploration and self-development.

Psychotherapy and Counselling and are undergoing rapid changes and I am particularly interested in the developing fields of Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Therapy and  Positive Neuroplasticity of Emotions and their applicaction in therapy. I have integrated aspects of all these approaches in my counselling practice and find them transformative in work with depression and anxiety, stress and negative thinking,  low self-esteem and low self-confidence

I am registered and accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and practise in accordance with their ethical standards of clinical practice.

I offer counselling sessions in English and German.
