About me

I offer a welcoming, confidential counselling service based in central Bridgwater. As an integrative therapist I aim to provide a warm, safe and supportive space tailored to you individual requirements.

You will receive a friendly, nonjudgmental and caring environment in which to explore your thoughts and feelings.

Counselling gives you the opportunity to discuss personal issues and situations that you may not be unable to share which friends and family. The therapy process can be confidence building and bring relief from stress, anxiety and depression. As well as improving well-being, increasing self awareness and creating the ability to develop better coping strategies for anger, loss, bereavement and relationship difficulties.

My therapies include.....

  • Person Centred Therapy
  • Transactional Analysis
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Solution Focussed Therapy

Whether you need support with anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, relationships, family problems, work issues, painful emotions or personal development you don’t have to face your challenges alone.

During the Therapeutic process you can:

  • Increase your self awareness and learn how life events have impacted your life and affected your viewpoint and experiences.
  • Learn how to reassess and challenge your negative beliefs to enable positive change.
  • Re-evaluate and change damaging thought patterns to assist positive thinking.
  • Be given the opportunity to make beneficial changes changes and build your confidence.
  • Become a better version of yourself

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
