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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
