About us

Helping women process their past, explore the present and create their future. I support you to make sense of and cope with difficult and distressing issues, and look at choices and options to help you feel more in control.  I also support women who are on a self-development path and want help with self-esteem, confidence, identity and personal growth.

All issues are welcome, the things we feel depressed about, need to deal with, are anxious about, and want to explore or change including family issues, social pressures, loss and work related stress.  You may have one particular area of your life or event from the past that is causing you to feel depressed or anxious or you may want to look at lots of things that feel concerning, upsetting or traumatic.  You lead the sessions with what feels right for you.

I provide specialist support for survivors of domestic abuse, childhood abuse and survivors of rape and sexual assault, having worked in this field for over 20 years.

I work in person from my counselling room in Westbury, as well as in other towns including Bath and Frome. I am a qualified Sand Tray Therapist experienced at working with adults and I bring my Sand Tray to sessions for women who want to explore things creatively.  I also offer outdoor Walk & Talk Counselling sessions which can really help women who struggle with sitting still for an hour, or who don't feel comfortable looking at others face-to-face.

I am a qualified online counsellor and work with women across the UK over video link, phone, text/Live chat and email.  Online counselling is really helpful for women with social anxiety, mobility issues, lack of transport, who feel safer being at home and who would rather write or text than speak with a counsellor.

As a qualified Integrative Counsellor I believe there isn't one approach that fits everyone in all situations, so I combine different approaches, techniques, and therapeutic interventions based on your individual needs, thoughts, feelings, emotions, spirituality, past experiences and current circumstances.  In the past I have volunteered for the Samaritans for 5 years, for a Rape Support Helpline for 18 months, for a Rape & Sexual Assault Centre for 2 years, and I am a qualified Independent Domestic and Sexual Violence Adviser and have worked in the charity sector for over 20 years.

It can be very overwhelming to know where to start when you are looking for help and support. You are very welcome to email, call or text me, whichever way you feel most comfortable with.  We can also arrange a time for a free initial call if you would like to speak with me about what you would like help with and to find out more about what I offer or I can send you an information pack with all the information you may want to know.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations *

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Accessibility

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.
