About me

I'm a chartered counselling psychologist based in central Bath, offering a range of psychological therapies (including CBT,  compassion focused therapy and schema therapy) for adults and young people aged 16+.  I also provide supervision for psychologists and other integrative therapists, and relationship counselling 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, chronic worry, health anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks and phobias);
  • trauma (PTSD, complex trauma and difficulties with dissociation);
  • eating disorders and body-related distress;
  • obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), intrusive thoughts and trichotillomania;
  • depression and low mood;
  • problems with emotion regulation and sense of self;
  • bipolar disorder;
  • low self-esteem, self criticism and perfectionism;
  • identity-related issues (including issues relating to autism spectrum and other forms of neurodiversity);
  • work-related stress and burnout;
  • relationship difficulties; and
  • the long-term effects of emotional abuse, neglect and/or trauma in childhood and adolescence.

You may find though that the difficulties that you are experiencing 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 with you to develop your emotional wellbeing.
