About me

Caring and Inclusive Counselling for Young People and Adults in the Bath area.

I am an integrative counsellor, accredited by the Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists Singapore (APACS) and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I use a range of therapeutic models in my work including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), specialist forms of CBT such as ERP for OCD and CBT-E for eating disorders, as well as IPSRT for Depression, and Person Centred counselling for those looking for a less structured approach. My experience has been gained at a counselling agency in Singapore, where I worked with teenagers and adults from low income families, an international school in Singapore and in private practice in Bath (UK). I have also supported children in a Bath secondary school on site.

I am available for counselling in Bath and the surrounding area, for adults and teenagers. I can help with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, mood disorders, stress (including exam stress), self-esteem, trauma, relationship, communication and social skills problems.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

Why go to counselling? Problems come in all shapes and sizes. For some people there is a clear reason to see a counsellor. Others have a vague feeling of sadness, disquiet or unease from time to time. As a first step, contact me to discuss your needs.
