About me

I have been practicing Psychotherapy for a number of years in Bath and North Wilts. I practice Core Process Psychotherapy, this is a psycho spiritual approach based on Mindfulness to life. Particular Mindfulness psychotherapy practices are widely used in the treatment and reduction of anxiety, stress and depression. The emphasis is on relieving suffering through bringing awareness and compassion to how we are in the present moment.

With psychotherapy you may experience:

  • A sense if expanded identity
  • A re-connection to your deeper self
  • Some new tools to manage your life day to day
  • A greater sense of well being, energy, happiness and vitality
  • A greater sense of meaning in your everyday life.

It’s a known fact that life can be challenging and it’s perfectly normal to feel upset or worried from time to time. Most of the time when life throws us problems or difficulties, usually we have the resources to cope.

However, sometimes life can go out of balance, our problems appear to be all we are and all consuming and we can lose perspective.  We may begin to feel overwhelmed. When this happens we may need some professional support to help us work through this difficult time.

In the safe environment of my psychotherapy practice I will offer you a deep, gentle, non judgemental  holistic and confidential approach to understanding both yourself and the difficulties you are facing. I feel passionate about helping people find some peace and healing from the difficult pain and chaos they can be in . I have clients that come for 6 weeks to several years and together we work through the difficulties .
It is a weekly therapy and I am committed to journeying along side my clients throughout the process.

I have an MA in Core Process Psychotherapy awarded by Middlesex University through the Karuna Institute and I am an accredited Confidence Coach.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
