About me

* In-Person and Online Availability on Tuesday and Thursdays in April - I will update my availability here :) **

Are you anxious, overwhelmed or feeling low? Maybe you feel like you need a change? Asking for help can be really difficult, especially if you are struggling! I am an experienced Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Counselling Psychologist. I offer weekly sessions both online and in-person for adults in central Bath (Free parking is a 10 minute walk away.)

Counselling Psychology is research-based psychological therapy. I am HCPC registered and I adhere to HCPC and BPS codes of conduct. I am fully insured and supervised. I have 14 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and coach and 6 years as a Psychologist. I also practice EMDR and Attachment Focused EMDR.

In addition to working with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and relationship issues, particular areas of interest include:

·       Loss - loved ones, relationship, job, identity, life plans and ideas.
·       Childhood neglect, emotional abuse, low self-esteem
·       Chronic illness
·       Perfectionism
·       PTSD, CPTSD and Trauma
·       Parents, parenting, marital difficulty

·       Neurodiversity

·       Life stage transitions, menopause, change, crisis, retirement and illness

I have worked with with all kinds of psychological and emotional concern and I can help you to achieve self-awareness, make changes, increase resilience and coping skills, develop and try new perspectives, patterns and behaviours and bring relief from stress and distress.

Psychotherapy can help you further your emotional intelligence, improve your emotional regulation, increase your confidence, make progress with life goals and enhance relationships of all types.

Very often we struggle with problems on our own and find it difficult to talk to others for fear of upsetting them or being misunderstood. We can become self-critical when going it alone is not helping and sometimes, we kick ourselves when we are down.

I provide a safe, confidential, non- judgemental place so you can talk about what troubles you and think about new possibilities. I respect your right to be you. My aim is to provide security and welcome and a skill set to assist you. I am friendly, easy to get on with and I have a sense of humour :)

I work in an integrative way, I listen carefully and I consider your experience. The therapeutic modalities which inform my practice are; Psychodynamic Therapy, Person-Centred Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Pesso Boyden Therapy and EMDR. I use a combination of these approaches. I consider all information including your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I work collaboratively, research your concerns, make a tailored plan to resolve the problem or reach the goal and then we do the plan together. 

Your experience is important and there is a need for you to be heard and understood in order for you to make progress. We can focus on the past, the present or both. Often, present difficulties or distress can be connected with past experiences or childhood experiences. This can make things feel confused as we sometimes use old ways to solve new problems, even if this is unhelpful.

I work alongside you and I think with you because collaboration helps to build resilience, self-awareness and new ways to resolve problems and move forward.

What now?

The journey of a thousand miles begins with single step! Text or email Alice to arrange a first meeting and find out how we could work together and whether this is right for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an HCPC registered, BPS Chartered Counselling Psychologist, trained in the South West of England. I use an integrative approach which incorporates the modalities I originally trained in and I supplement these with useful and effective strategies from other psychological approaches and coaching methods :).

I am trained in EMDR and working toward accreditation in 2024. I completed training to carry out ADHD diagnosis and assessment with UKAAN in early 2024 and I am currently in training to deliver Pesso Boyden Psychomotor Therapy and  refreshing my Cognitive Analytic Therapy skills.
