Welcome. I am a Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapist offering psychotherapy and counselling in private practices in Bath and Frome.
These are challenging times. With the current lockdown situation I am offering online sessions. Please contact to discuss fees and arrange an initial zoom/FaceTime session or by phone if you prefer.
Sustaining our inner selves and living the lives we want to live can be challenging in today's complex and uncertain world. Psychotherapy can help you through a difficult time whether its due to stress, relationship or work issues or persistent feelings of dissatisfaction and disappointment. You might feel overwhelmed, angry, anxiety, distress or find difficulty coping with aspects of our life. I believe that when we understand more about ourselves we have greater choice and freedom in our lives.
Effective therapy is transformative - research shows that the quality of the relationship between client and therapist is the most important indicator to the therapy outcome being successful. It can answer our natural, human need to be heard and deeply understood. In a process where the cornerstones are collaboration, compassion, support and imagination we will listen closely to how you think about problems and how ingrained patterns may be affecting your efforts to find solutions. By exploring thoughts, ideas and feelings together, and being curious about what lays behind them, the process of psychotherapy can help to deal with emotional and relational problems to live a more satisfying and fulfilling life.
So what happens next?
If this resonates with you, just send me an email or call me directly.
We will arrange an initial meeting to explore whether psychotherapy is right for you. If we decide to work together we will arrange to meet weekly for a 50 minute session and think together about what feels right in terms of the length of the therapy. My intention is to help you connect with the deep roots of your experience and guide you to a successful outcome and resolution.
We hear endlessly all around us that unvarying sound which is not an echo from without, but the resonance of a vibration from within.

Training, qualifications & experience
Masters Degree in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (Middlesex University)
Professional Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (Bath Centre for Psychotherapy & Counselling)
I am also a qualified psychotherapist in Pesso Boyden Therapy - a mind-body based psychotherapy which is highly effective with trauma and works individually and in groups. Traditional therapies help a client cope with their past. In Pesso Boyden, using imagined 'ideal figures' or people playing these roles, PBSP creates 'antidotes' to the past and what happened and creates new memories of how life could have been. Excellent for attachment injuries, anxieties, PTSD, developmental trauma, parentification, 'over responsibility' and other deep seated issues, that lead to an 'earned secure attachment'.
