About me

I work face-to-face in Bath and I also offer sessions by telephone and Zoom. Please contact me for more details. 


I am an experienced, fully qualified psychotherapist and clinical supervisor 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 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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
