I'm a chartered psychologist based in central Bath, offering a range of psychological therapies (including CBT, compassion focused therapy and schema therapy) and integrative psychotherapy for individuals aged 18+. I also provide supervision for psychologists and integrative therapists, and relationship therapy for couples and other close relationships.
Due to the coronavirus crisis, I'm currently offering online sessions only, rather than the usual 'in person' sessions.
As a psychologist, I offer research-informed therapy for a wide range of emotional and mental health difficulties, including:
- anxiety-related difficulties (including generalised anxiety disorder, chronic worry, health anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks and phobias);
- trauma (PTSD, complex trauma and difficulties with dissociation);
- eating disorders and body-related distress/body dysmorphia;
- obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), intrusive thoughts and trichotillomania;
- depression, low mood and other difficulties with emotion regulation;
- low self-esteem and self criticism;
- relationship difficulties;
- identity-related issues (including issues relating to autism spectrum and other forms of neurodiversity such as ADHD);
- work-related problems (such as stress, burnout or the effects of workplace bullying);
- the emotional effects of chronic pain, fatigue and other long term health problems; and
- the long-term effects of emotional abuse, neglect and/or trauma in childhood and adolescence.
You may find that the difficulties that you experience don't seem to fall within any of these terms or descriptions, but are still getting in the way of you living a fulfilling and meaningful life. I provide a warm and supportive environment in which we can explore whatever is concerning you, and work together to identify new perspectives and possibilities.
