About me

I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with my core approach based in Person Centred Therapy. I offer psychotherapeutic counselling to individuals and couples from my Private Practice which I established in 2013. I have experience working with clients with a wide range of issues and I draw upon different approaches to suit the individual needs of each person. I work in a person centred and non directive way. This means that I value you as a whole person and your ability to know what is right for you.

My aim is to create a safe and trusting environment to enable you to share your problems and feel heard. I provide short and long term counselling in the Wells, Glastonbury and Shepton Mallet areas. My Private Practice is based in Shepton Mallet.

Training, qualifications & experience

CPCAB Level 5 Diploma in Pychotherapeutic Counselling

During my training I worked as a volunteer counsellor for a Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre where I gained experience working with clients with diverse mental health issues including addiction, depression, anxiety and panic attacks, OCD, PTSD, bi-polar and schizophrenia. I have worked with clients on a one to one basis and facilitated and co-facilitated group therapy. Working with issues including eating disorders, suicide, self harm, sexual abuse, severe neglect, violence, bereavement, relationship breakdown, emotional and mental abuse and addiction; all forms of legal and illegal drug dependency, alcohol dependency, sex addiction, gambling and gang culture. Since my training I have continued to work as a Counsellor for a local Counselling service. I set up my Private Practice in 2013 and continue to see clients for individual counselling and couples for relationship counselling. I also see established counsellors and psychotherapists for Clinical Supervision, (limited number of trainee counsellors supervision places available too).
