About me

You might be struggling with something difficult in your life in the here and now, such as the loss of a loved one, or the traumatic breakdown of a relationship. Or perhaps you’re aware of vague, underlying feelings of sadness, anxiety or anger.

Maybe you feel trapped in a cycle of repeated disappointments with partners, friends and careers and don’t know why. It might feel impossible to get what you want, or even know what you want. It may feel like there’s no one to turn to.

Whether you know what the problem is, or even if you don’t, therapy can help. It’s an opportunity to explore yourself; to examine feelings, thoughts and motivations and gain understanding - the first step towards navigating a different, happier course.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

Further information

The therapy world can feel a little mysterious or even precious at times.  A previous career outside the profession helps keep my feet on the ground and in touch with the world outside therapy where problems are not just theoretical, but practical and painful. You’ll find me reliably compassionate and understanding of you and life’s struggles.

As well as working in private practice, I am a tutor to psychotherapy and counselling students beginning their training as therapists with Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and counselling.

I have also worked as:

- Therapist with Somerset Partnership NHS Trust
- Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with Time to Talk in West Berkshire providing free of charge counselling for people in West Berkshire with problems primarily arising from depression, anxiety and issues of self-worth.

I trained under the umbrella of the Humanistic and Integrative college of psychotherapy - you can find more details here on the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy website.

Supervision

I like to think of supervision as contributing to healthy quality control of the service that counsellors and psychotherapists offer to their clients.
