Ailin Kelleher MA HIP Dip HIP UKCP Member
I have worked as a psychotherapist for almost 20 years working with individuals and couples I have a special interest in relational issues. I also offer clinical supervision to psychotherapists and counsellors.
I believe that it is important for the client to feel secure and able to talk about whatever issues are troubling them. I aim to provide a supportive and responsive environment in which we can make sense of your particular difficulties. I believe that understanding the impact of past experience on the present helps to increase self esteem and transform unsatisfying relational patterns. The process helps you to free yourself from limiting self beliefs so you are free to move on in life and have more fulfilling relationships.
I work in the Oldfield Park area of Bath. My practice room is quiet, comfortable and convenient for anyone on the Western side of Bath. It is just a minute from Oldfield Park Station with regular train services from places like Bradford on Avon, Keynsham and Chippenham. Just off the Lower Bristol Road it is only a 25 minute drive from the eastern edges of Bristol.
