I have been working as an Individual Psychotherapist for over 15 years now, working with many hundreds of people from all walks of life and with all kinds of presenting issues. I currently work in Frome and in Glastonbury in Somerset.
I work with Couples and hold a Certificate in the Study of the Couple Relationship certified by Tavistock Relationship, part of the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychiatry. In addition to my work with individuals and couples, I lecture and train people in Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy courses and Masters Degrees.
Over the years some of the issues I have worked with include: Anxiety, depression, unresolved trauma, anger management, panic attacks, sexual problems, addiction, loneliness, suicidal thinking and childhood abuse. I have worked with many people with diagnoses such as Borderline Personality Disorder and Bi Polar disorder. I also work with the existential and spiritual search for deeper meaning and fulfilment.
I work with short term therapy, using life changing techniques such as Mindfulness, and targeting symptom relief and enacting quick effective change. I offer safe, and secure stabilisation around personal crisis and I also am committed to longer term therapy, working at depth, supporting and enabling real and lasting life change.
I have the kind of life experience and training that has helped me to meet whatever clients bring with understanding, strength and support. It is my aim to make therapy a place where any difficulty can be shared and real change can be helped to happen.
