Freya Barrett MA,DipHIP,UKCP Psychotherapist For Individuals and Couples
I am a qualified psychotherapist offering psychotherapy and counselling to individuals and couples in Bath. I have experience working in the NHS as a psychotherapist, but now work in private practice. I am a full clinical member of UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy).
I believe it is crucial to create an environment where you feel safe to talk; somewhere that you can bring all of yourself. I provide a confidential and non-judgmental space where we can explore you feelings, motivations, anxieties and fears, where I can really hear what it feels like to be you.
Because I believe that the relationship between us is key to our work together, I offer a free initial session in order that we can explore whether we feel we could work together. Email or phone me if you would like to arrange an initial session for us to meet each other and for you to talk about what has led you here and to see if I am right for you.
Common issues that bring individuals into counselling and psychotherapy, which I have lots of experience working with, include depression ranging from low self esteem to self loathing and a sense of badness at the core of oneself, anxiety, including generalised anxiety disorder and panic disorder, sexual problems, overeating, inability to form or maintain close relationships, loneliness, rejection, loss including bereavement, divorce and relationship breakdown. Common relationship issues that bring couples into therapy include affairs, communication issues, problems with sex, money, housework and in-laws.
