During most of last year and now into 2021 I have been able to offer on-line and telephone support and, when restrictions are eased, I have an outdoor sheltered space to work face to face.
I aim to provide a safe space for individuals and couples in which we can explore what is happening for you and to work towards your goals. My practice room is in a dedicated room on the ground floor and I keep it warm and welcoming.
My training helps me to provide you with a reliable, regular, non-judgmental space where you can begin to talk about whatever is on your mind. I work in what is called an integrative way which means I use a wide range of therapeutic models, but primarily focusing on humanistic counselling.
Throughout life, we can experience times of anxiety, difficult relationship issues, depression, maybe feeling sad and have a low mood or need support working through family issues such as separation or divorce or sometimes we can have a long standing phobia about something which is increasingly making life difficult.
During counselling I will listen accurately to your concerns in a supportive, accepting and non-judgemental way, helping you to develop insight into your problems. My aim is to enable you to develop your own coping skills and strategies using your own resources. The counselling process will help you explore your problems, help you to understand them and to arrive at some decisions about what to do about them. Counselling can help you with developmental issues, life changes, resolving specific problems, making decisions, coping with a crisis, general anxiety and general depression, develop personal insight and knowledge, work through feelings of inner conflict and improve relationships with others by looking at relationship issues. I work with individuals, females, males, young adults and adolescents with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, anxiety disorders and relationship difficulties. I also work with couples who are experiencing relationship issues due to affairs, betrayals, separation, divorce and pre-nuptial (pre wedding) offering both individuals counselling to help both parties relate to the other in a better way.
To be successful, counselling is very dependent on trust and confidentiality and I abide by the BACP's code of ethics. My counselling room is on the ground floor. It is warm and comfortable in a safe and discreet rural location. There is ample free on street parking available.

Training, qualifications & experience
I undertook a 3 year diploma course at the Bath Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy. The course is accreditated with BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I am a registered member of BACP and abide by their code of ethics.
I have 2 years experience of working in a college setting, working with both adult learners and adolescents. The younger clients sometimes bring developmental difficulties such as struggling with self identity, sexual identity, anxiety, low self esteem and all the challenges faced with living an more independent life. During, what could be, their first taste of living independently, I can help with family issues which can escalate during this first taste of separation.
I have also had experience of working in a local addictions agency mainly working with alcohol addiction and working within an agency which provided family care packages to families within the BANES area.
I have undertaken further studies in MBSR (Mindfulness based Stress Reduction) and MBCT (Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy), Mindfulness for Women, Anger Management, Transgender Awareness, Couples Counselling and Understanding Autism.
I hold a current DBS check.
I currently work in private practice and provide support for several EAP companies.
I am happy to work short term or long term.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

I have one lower cost session every week which I keep for clients who are unwaged, on a very low income or are students. Please let me know if you are interested in this service. Sometimes there is a small waiting list for these appointments to become available.
My consulting room is on the ground floor in a quiet, discreet rural location.
It is 100 yards away from the main road therefore easy to find and where there is a local bus stop.
Outside there is ample on-street parking.
I do realise that weekly counselling may not suit the timetables and lifestyles of all clients and can accommodate a varied diary.
