About me

I offer very affordable counselling with flexible working hours, daytimes in Bath, and mostly evenings but occasional days and possibly weekends in Peasedown. I work with families, children, adolescents, individuals and couples.

I work in a person-centred way which means that I aim to build a relationship with you in which you feel safe and not judged, and in which you set the agenda.

I can help you work on a variety of problems including low mood, depression, trauma, anxiety, a sense of confusion about life, suicide, suicidal thoughts, loss and bereavement.

If you're a teenager I can help you work on self-esteem, self-harm, identity issues including gender identity, eating disorders, anxiety, low mood, friendship difficulties, family problems, and bullying.

I will work in collaboration with you in the way which suits you the best. Most people are okay with simply talking, but I also offer more creative and playful ways of working together, which might involve writing, drawing, games or even music! Sometimes working in such ways can allow you to get in touch with aspects of yourself which can feel genuinely empowering, and which may not be so easily accessed with just talking.
