About me

I am based near Bath in Wiltshire and I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy.

We all have times in our lives when we feel a bit stuck and we may not even know why.  Some difficulties may stem from childhood while others may come from a change in our circumstances such as a career move or a recent loss.  Being given a safe place to explore your situation can lead to a deeper understanding of what is happening for you and the opportunity to find your way through and move forward.

There are many different types of Therapy;  Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic – to name but a few.  My approach is an integrative one with its basis around transactional analysis, person-centered, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioural therapies.

Generally the agreement is to meet weekly at the same time and sessions are for one hour.

People seek Counselling and Psychotherapy for a variety of reasons including the following:

Stress and Anxiety, relationship difficulties, bereavement and loss, anger, self-defeating behaviours, goal setting and motivation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am an accredited member of The National Counselling Society.

I have also completed the following:

Postgraduate Advanced Diploma in Transactional Analysis

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.
