About me

Welcome

I run a small counselling practice near the city of Wells, and offer online or face to face counselling from my base in the Mendips.

I am fully qualified integrative Psychotherapist and a registered member of the BACP and the NCS(accred),

I work with adults and teens and provide a calm, safe environment and a non-judgmental approach where you will be met with warmth and respect, where you will feel heard, accepted and understood.

My integrative approach is underpinned by my person-centred core training. I work in a way that values you as a unique being, using various techniques and theories to best suit you and your situation, to support you, to help you understand your difficulties and to help you find your own way forward.

I have supported those with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, low mood, low self-esteem, grief and trauma in both the short and long term.

Taking this first step seeking out help I know is daunting, it takes strength and courage to do so. Finding the right counsellor you feel at ease with and someone you feel able to freely talk to is very important.

Please feel free to contact me, I offer a free brief introductory telephone session that will give you an opportunity to discuss you needs, find out a bit more about me and how counselling may help you, and most importantly to see if we can work together.

I am now able to offer face to face sessions in a Covid safe environment or online sessions, via zoom. I am based just a few minutes from the city of Wells and have parking.
