About me

I offer individual counselling in Taunton ( Mondays) and Bridgwater Somerset. I am a Senior Accredited Member of the BACP. After years of working successfully with individuals across all walks of life, I have a deep understanding of how we can take control of our lives and plan for ourselves a fulfilling future.

The first step is to acknowledge past events, and understand how they shape your current experience. Then to work through and resolve the issues, difficulties and challenges that hold you back. Once this process has been followed through, you will have broken negative thought patterns, and know how to challenge your mindset in future. In short – you will be free to love your life, and enjoy your future.

I provide a safe and comfortable environment in which the ‘new you’ can grow. It is a modern approach to counselling and coaching,I work in a way that is enabling, empowering, creative and intuitive working towards helping you to live the best life you can have, in the best way you can.

My company New Leaf Life Design operates a private counselling clinic based in Bridgwater and Taunton, with associate counsellors based in Glastonbury, Minehead, Yeovil, and Wellington in Somerset. I have a very relaxing private space. Our first session lasts an hour and will give you a chance to see if you feel comfortable with me and I can spend some time explaining how I work as a counsellor with the issues you want to work with.

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor with a wide experience of helping people resolve difficulties, I hope this puts you at ease. I have experience in working with relationship issues, bereavement, low self confidence, work related issues and anxiety are all issues which I can work with.

I'm good at helping people bring structures to life, I find I am able to notice where the growing point is in someones life and how to expand this I can help create a new life design. The process I use is to be able to find a way to bring a framework to transform people's issues by making an intuitive leap which connects different aspects of their lives together. These connections is what people value about my offering and the insights which come alongside. I love seeing how if we succeed in changing something internally we then start to see the creation of the external change.

Here is a short video where I talk about the work of New Leaf Life Design

I help people to become more resilient and yet open in the future filled with uncertainty and unpredictability in the world. You can also connect with me via facebook and twitter @newleafonline I hope through the social media you can get a flavour for my views and values about life which may also help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you.

I am also able to offer counselling supervision I charge £90 per session for 1.5 hours of supervision.

Counsellor Supervision in Bridgwater and Taunton

I supervise a number of counsellors who coach within their client work. I work in an integrative way helping the counsellor to work safely and ethically. I operate within and comply to the Code of Ethics for the BACP and the Association for Coaching.

Sometimes coaches require a space where they can reflect upon and understand the more psychological aspects of their work. In supervision we can spend time reflecting upon the challenges that you are facing, deepen your understanding of the relational dynamics at play, explore the complexities of the organisational context of your coachee and plan for future work with your clients.

I have a particular interest in working with the embodied imagination. I tend to spend time in supervision exploring the alchemic nature of this process and the capacities of the embodied imagination to promote healing and creativity. I tend to work more with experienced practitioners who hold MBACP Accredited status.

I no longer supervise students.

My Company New Leaf Life Design operates a counselling service from Wellington with Vivienne Sutton and Taunton with Jan Walker, Glastonbury Stephanie Groves. Lyn Willcox and Sarah Adams has also joined us in Bridgwater and Helena Trump in Wiveliscombe, Charlotte Clements cover Shepton Mallet and Frome. Sally Barmes is in Yeovil. The service works with over 18s only and we do not offer specific anger management work; however we can use a counselling model to help with anger issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Counselling and hold a Master of Science Degree in Counselling Research awarded by the University of Bristol. I have a diploma in Individual and Group Supervision and supervise counsellors in Taunton Somerset where I am based.

Within working in the prison service I was involved in teaching assertiveness, drug, alcohol, anger and stress management courses to inmates. I also delivered a Post Traumatic Stress Counselling to Somerset Probation Service Offenders. I have held a private counselling practice since 1992.

I am a senior accredited member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, the Ethical Guidelines for Researching Counselling and Psychotherapy (where practitioners undertake research) and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure for the time being in force. I am also an Executive member of the BACP Coaching Division.
