Hello and welcome to my profile. I offer counselling, psychotherapy and supervision in Bath city centre, and in Saltford GP surgery, on the outskirts of Bristol. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, bereavement, stress, eating disorders, OCD and more.
It is my belief that even the most difficult times can hold opportunities for new beginnings and ways of being, which can lead to a more positive way forward. I aim to support you and to help you overcome the difficulties you are facing.
I have trained in a number of different approaches so that I can adapt my way of working to what would most suit you. I aim to meet all my clients with warmth and understanding.
Currently I am also working as a supervisor of bereavement volunteers for Cruse in Swindon. And I am a member of the South West Counsellors' Collective, an organisation working to ensure high quality counselling is available to a wide range of individuals and organisations across the South West.
Having worked for the NHS for several years, I am now in private practice.
