About me

Psychology has long held that one of the significant sources of our well-being is the way we think and feel about ourselves. The sum of these thoughts and emotions profoundly influences our sense of self-worth and how we deal with life. In my work I support my clients to understand better their personal history, their thoughts and their emotional problems and to develop a positive inner dialogue, key to developing lasting inner strenghts and to making changes for the better.

I see people  with anxiety, depression, stress, work-related and health problems, relationship and family issues, bereavement, low self-esteem, personal and emotional distress.

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

Counselling is undergoing rapid changes and I am particularly interested in the developing fields of Mindfulness, Positive Psychology and  Neuropsychology 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 an experienced counsellor, Registered and Accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have been counselling individuals since 2001 in a wide range of settings including Bath University, Bath City College, a GP surgery, an Employee Assistance Programme and in Private Practice. I was also a Trustee of the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling. Before training as a counsellor I taught for 19 years in Secondary and Higher Education.
Having worked as part of a team of counsellors at the Counselling Service at the University of Bath for 6 years I have considerable experience as a Student Counsellor and issues relating to student life. I have some places at a concessionary rate for students in full-time education.

I offer counselling sessions in English and German.
