About me

During our lives, there can be times when we find that life is harder to tolerate, and it can be at these times that it is difficult to share what is going on for us.

I offer individual therapies targeted at your personal needs in a confidential safe space where we can work together respectfully exploring your own emotions. Time for yourself spent in counselling can enable and facilitate the unraveling of thoughts and aid you in making sense of that which has been disrupting your peace of mind, this in turn helps us work toward positive outcomes.

I work as an Integrative Counsellor with clinics in Stoford near Yeovil, and llminster.

My therapies include:
Person Centred Therapy (PCT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET)
Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)
Behavioural Couples Therapy (BCT)

I also work with relaxation and breathing techniques to assist with anxiety, stress and panic disorders.

Individual time for you to address low self esteem, anxiety, stress and any concerns around addictive behaviours and relationship difficulties that may have become problematic. Bereavement or loss and Trauma can become overwhelming and difficult to deal with. Meaning making, decisions and moving on.

Person Centred Therapy works alongside the client providing them time to explore their personal thoughts and feelings.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy works collaboratively with the client whilst they consider and explore their own negative thoughts, feelings and behaviour patterns working with Generalised anxiety disorder and Depression and work related stress.

During the free initial telephone consultation we will be able to discuss and safely explore together any worries and concerns that you may have, this will give you time to ask any questions about counselling and what it means to you.
