About me

I offer a safe and confidential space for self-exploration in the centre of Bath. I have 17 years of professional experience working with anxiety, depression, stress, work-related and health problems, relationship and family issues, bereavement, low self-esteem, personal and emotional distress.

The way we think and feel about ourselves profoundly influences our sense of self-worth and how we deal with life and I also see people, whose lives may or may not be pressured by immediate problems, who wish to gain greater self-awareness through self-exploration and further their self-development.

Having worked for 6 years in the Student Counselling Service of Bath University I have considerable experience in the counselling of students and offer some reduced rate spaces to students in full-time education.

Psychotherapy and Counselling and are undergoing rapid changes and I am particularly interested in the evolving fields of Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Therapy, Positive Neuroplasticity and the Neurobiology of Emotions and their application in therapy. I have integrated aspects of all these approaches in my counselling practice and find them transformative in work with depression and anxiety, stress and negative thinking,  low self-esteem and low self-confidence

I am registered and accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and practise in accordance with their ethical standards of clinical practice.

I offer counselling sessions in English and German.
