About me

I am a qualified and registered UKCP Psychotherapist and have been working in private practice for 20 years.

I initially trained as a psychodynamic counsellor, following this I trained at the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling to become a Psychotherapist gaining UKCP accreditation in 2003.

I work with a wide range of difficulties and concerns such as childhood trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship breakdown, a sense of meaninglessness, negative thoughts and behaviour, work related issues, and bereavement. (For further information please see full list of areas I work with at bottom of this page.)

I also offer long term in-depth therapy to trainee counsellors and psychotherapists.

I work with couples who maybe struggling with communication difficulties, or relationship breakdown. I work to support both parties to help them understand how they got to where they are and to gain a better understanding of one another and how to think about moving forward.

I can work either time limited or longer term depending on individual need.

I am a Supervisor and offer supervision/consultancy to Psychotherapists/Counsellors and organisations.

I am also Director of Services at Somerset Counselling Centre in Taunton and oversee the development and clinical work at the centre.
