I am an approachable counsellor with a focus on anxiety, depression, self-esteem and relationship issues. Whilst I work with all adult age groups I also particularly enjoy working with young adults.
I can offer short term support in time of a crisis or longer term work if you wish to understand yourself at a deeper level.
I offer a free 15 minute phone call to discuss what brings you to counselling and what help or support you are looking for. We can then arrange to meet for a 50 minute session for you to get a sense of how comfortably we could work together.
Once we have agreed to start we meet at the same time and day once a week. Our sessions are held at my practice in Bath which is in the city centre and easily accessible by bus or train.
I also offer zoom or telephone counselling sessions for those who are unable to meet in person.
The cost of both the initial session and the ongoing weekly session is £40.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a member of the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and WCPS (Wessex Counselling & Psychotherapy Service) and my ongoing professional development includes courses and seminars with WCPS, the Tavistock Clinic, Severnside Institute of Psychotherapy, the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy, Off the Record Bath and more.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
