Based in central Bath, I am a BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor who works with you to find solutions and coping strategies as you journey towards a more confident self.
My work is influenced by the traditions of humanistic, psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-based practices. This approach enables me to work in a way that is right for you, respecting your pace and depth of work.
The relational aspect of my approach works with the dynamics of the relationship we develop. My aim is to build a strong relationship between us both, and to offer a confidential and safe space where you can speak freely about your concerns and areas of your life that might feel difficult to discuss with friends and family.
Counselling offers the potential for directing your own future, to take control and to establish a more satisfying and rewarding way of living. This exploratory process encourages an honesty and openness that leads to greater personal insight and understanding, so that you may begin to view yourself and your issues in a different light.

Committed and passionate about the work I do, my intention is to work with you in a way that is collaborative, creative and focused on your individual needs. This involves building a relationship where you feel understood and accepted, drawing on different methods of working, and respecting the pace and the way in which you choose to work.
There is much to consider when embarking upon counselling and in choosing a Counsellor. It is important that you work with someone that is right for you, that you connect with, that you feel you will be able to trust. So I always suggest that we have an initial check in over the telephone before we agree to our initial session. If you would like to know more about how and when I work, then please do get in touch whether by telephone or e-mail, all enquiries are welcomed.
My private practice operates from Widcombe Holistic Therpay rooms and The Abbey Practice in the heart of central Bath.
