I provide one to one counselling, also known as talking therapy, from a comfortable and calm setting in Frome, Somerset.
Qualified as an integrative counsellor, my training enables me to incorporate a number of approaches in my practice but I believe that a strong and trusting working relationship between client and therapist is what matters the most.
Sometimes it can help to simply talk to someone about what you are going through. I provide a safe environment for you to acknowledge how you really feel and be supported in it.
Deciding to embark on a counselling journey can take courage. My role is to listen non-judgementally and help you explore the issues that have caused you to seek counselling. The first session allows you to ask questions about the process and share what you hope to gain from it, then together we can consider whether ongoing therapy would be beneficial.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked with a number of different counselling organisations; counselling clients of all ages with a range of presenting issues. I have also worked as a support group facilitator, most recently for Wiltshire MIND.
