About me

During the current Coronavirus situation, we can work remotely together – I will be offering sessions by telephone and Skype. Please contact me for more details.

-----------------------

I am an experienced, fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with my practice in Bath. I have helped many clients to face and overcome a wide range of emotional issues. These include:

  • anxiety
  • relationship issues
  • loss and bereavement
  • depression
  • alcohol and drug dependency
  • stress-related issues
  • anger
  • trauma and dissociation
  • low self-worth and suicidal thoughts

As well as being a fully qualified psychotherapist, I am a qualified counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist. When it is appropriate, I use hypnotherapy to help clients during our sessions.

I specialise in relational psychotherapy. This puts a focus on how we are connected with others. Its aim is to help clients achieve and maintain fulfilling and satisfying relationships with those around them. The strong, uplifting and secure relationship we can forge in therapy can serve as a model for future relationships that clients will aim to develop.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been a practising psychotherapist since 2006, working within the NHS and in private practice.

I trained with the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC) and I am a Registered Member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

I regularly attend continuing professional development workshops to add to my skills and expertise.

I have completed body psychotherapy training and mindfulness training, and am a qualified hypnotherapist.

Accessibility

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.
