Sheila Field UKCP, psychotherapist and counsellor for couples and individuals
Anxiety, depression, abuse, relationship difficulties - these may be some of the reasons that have brought you to this site. You are looking for someone who can listen to you without judgement, help you understand behaviour which is letting you down, or feelings which are powerful, sometimes overwhelming.
Are you having relationship difficulties or family problems? Do you struggle with depression or are you anxious at times? Have you had major changes in your life such as illness, bereavement, relationship breakup, or been affected by an affair or betrayal? Perhaps life is getting on top of you and perhaps it feels like no one understands or is there to help. Talking to me can help.
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist offering one to one psychotherapy and counselling in central Bath and in Larkhall Bath (covering BA1 and easily accessible from BA2 and other areas of Bath) for young people (18+), adults and couples.
My training, primarily Gestalt, also covered a number of therapeutic techniques and I aim to use the ones best suited to you and what you feel comfortable with. I create a friendly, kind and safe space for you to work through the issues you may have, whilst feeling supported, valued and heard. My experience is wide ranging from anxiety and abuse to panic disorders to relationships to work stress, and other stress. I have a particular expertise in domestic abuse.
Anxiety wears you down, stops you sleeping, hinders your work life, gets in the way of how you view yourself and others. You may know why you are anxious - but still the thoughts go round and round and you don't know how to make them stop.
Talking stuff through and getting feedback will give you some tools to help you manage all this anxiety. On the way, you will gain useful insights, learn more about yourself and what gets in the way of making you feel better.

Imagine looking in the mirror one morning and seeing smiling eyes, rather than worried frown, or seeing a new found confidence in that reflection. That can be what therapy does for you. Ring me now (or email,or text).
