Frome Psychotherapy and Counselling Service
The Cheap Street Rooms
18b Cheap Street
I have been working as an Individual Psychotherapist for over 12 years now. I currently work in Frome and in Glastonbury in Somerset.
Over the years some of the issues I have worked with include: Anxiety, depression, unresolved trauma, anger management, panic attacks, sexual problems, addiction, loneliness, suicidal thinking and childhood abuse. I also work with the spiritual search for deeper meaning and fulfilment.
I work with short term therapy, using life changing techniques such as Mindfulness, and targeting symptom relief and quick effective change. I offer safe, and secure stabilisation around personal crisis.
I also work in longer term therapy at depth supporting and helping with real and lasting life change. This can be of benefit both in supporting and working with difficult histories and life circumstances and in working at depth with issues of meaning and the attempt to build a life that is genuinely a happy one. I have lived a life that experience has shown me has helped me to meet whatever clients bring with strength and support. It is my aim to make therapy a place where any difficulty can be shared and real change can be helped to happen.
