The Practice Rooms
26 Upper Borough Walls
I am a BACP registered counsellor based in central Bath, and offer short or long term counselling to individuals (aged 18+).
I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, eating disorders, loss/bereavement, trauma, workplace/career problems and so on. I have particular interests in working with relationship problems; low self-esteem; the psychological/emotional effects of serious/long term illnesses (e.g. cancer, fibromyalgia, ME etc); and the long-term effects of emotional abuse and neglect in childhood.
Very often, though, people come to counselling with a general sense that life isn't quite right, rather than a specific issue: perhaps you might be feeling a bit empty or lost, or generally overwhelmed by the demands of your life. I provide a warm and supportive environment in which we can explore whatever is concerning you, and help you identify new perspectives and possibilities.
