About me

About You
Are you having relationships issues or family issues? Are you struggling with anxiety, or are you feeling depressed at times? Have you had a life transition such as redundancy, illness or bereavement, or been affected by an affair or betrayal? It may be that life is getting on top of you, and it may feel that there is no one to turn to help sort things out. Talking to me can help..

About Me
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist offering one to one integrative psychotherapy in Widcombe, Bath (covering BA1 and BA2), for young people (18+) and adults. My integrative training means that I have studied a number of therapeutic techniques and I aim to use the ones which will be best suited to you and what you feel comfortable with. I create a friendly, kind and safe environment to allow you to work through the issues that you may have, whilst feeling supported, valued and heard. I can help you with anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, relationship issues, phobias, family issues and other issues.

I am also a UKCP accredited supervisor and offer supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists.  I really enjoy supporting my supervisees in their work.

I am trained in EMDR and am completing accreditation.

How It Works
Normally we would start with an introductory session to see if you feel comfortable talking to me (which is really important), and then we would decide together a weekly time to meet for 50 minutes, and how many weeks might work best for you. I can offer both short term focussed work, and longer term in depth work, depending on what you need.

Our sessions together are a collaborative treatment based on the relationship that you and I will have. I would ask you to talk about what is going on for you, and I would provide a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral and nonjudgmental. You and I would work together to identify and change the thought and behaviour patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best. This can involve going through how childhood patterns of relating are affecting how you relate to others now.

By the time you’re done, you will not only have solved the problem that brought you in, but you will have learned new skills so you can better cope with whatever challenges arise in the future.

Therapy Location
The rooms that I use are in Widcombe in Bath, which is very close to the train and bus stations. The rooms are quiet, calm and private. There is free on-street parking. It is accessible easily for BA1, BA2, Frome, Trowbridge, Bradford on Avon and Chippenham.

Additional Experience
I also work in the NHS at the Royal United Hospital in Bath as a psychotherapist specialising in long term chronic conditions so I have particular expertise in this area. If you have diabetes, CFS, fibromyalgia or any other condition then I can offer you an experienced approach.

Please get in touch to arrange an introductory session.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
