About me

Welcome to my profile.

I am a fully qualified, BACP registered Integrative Therapist.

I see clients (18+) in my private practice (since 2011) working with a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, panic, bereavement, relationship/family difficulties and addiction. I also work extensively with students and help to support those who are struggling with the demands of university life.

I am a naturally caring, non-judgemental and empathic person, who will work sensitively at your pace.  There will be gentle challenge, as you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, which in turn helps to develop growth, change and movement.

I trained for four years and I believe there is no single approach that can be used whilst working with individual clients with a variety of issues. With my integrative training background, I am able to incorporate Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Transpersonal theories however, I also use 'tools' and 'methods' from other approaches such as Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. I practice Mindfulness in my personal life and am always happy to bring this in to the therapeutic space; this can be especially beneficial to those who suffer with anxiety and the fast pace of life.

I can work with you on a short (6-20 weeks) or long term, open-ended basis, working from a confidential and peaceful room. My practice is within walking distance from the centre of Bath and there is free parking at all times.


ABOUT YOU

It can sometimes be difficult to understand and come to terms with, let alone communicate, how we are feeling about something.  On top of that, to contact a stranger about an issue(s) that may feel very private, sensitive or disturbing, can be a real struggle.

Whether it feels as if you are holding something small or huge, something that is a current issue or issues from the past, counselling and psychotherapy may be able to help.

If you decide you would like to come and see me for an Initial Assessment, please feel free to send me an email, text or leave a message on my mobile. I aim to get back to you within 24 hours, usually sooner.

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE ASSESSMENT?

The initial meeting is an opportunity for us to meet and for you to let me know why you are thinking about having counselling. There will be space for you to ask any questions you may have about me and how I work. You will not be rushed and I will listen carefully to you, to enable me to fully assess your needs. *Please note, I do not charge for this appointment.

If you decide you would like to book up sessions and providing we are both in agreement that we would like to work together, we can discuss booking an initial six sessions. It may be that at the end of the six weeks (or less), you feel you no longer require support or perhaps further, open ended work is needed. I respect your autonomy at all times.
