Jacqui Pearse MBACP Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Couples Therapist
I'm a BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist based in central Bath, offering short or long term counselling, psychotherapy and CBT to individuals (aged 16+) and couples.
I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, eating disorders, loss/bereavement, trauma, workplace/career problems and so on. I have particular interests in working with relationship difficulties; issues with identity or sense of self (including relating to neurodiversity/autism spectrum); eating disorders; and the long-term effects of emotional abuse, neglect or trauma in childhood.
Very often, though, people come to therapy with a general sense that life isn't quite right, rather than a specific issue: perhaps you might be feeling a bit empty or lost, or generally overwhelmed by the demands of your life. I provide a warm and supportive environment in which we can explore whatever is concerning you, and help you identify new perspectives and possibilities.
