I am a fully qualified and insured counsellor based in central Bath and central Frome.
If you are feeling alone in your struggle to overcome painful problems or simply would like to find a way to experience more joy and satisfaction in life, a talking therapy with a caring and skilful counsellor can provide an opportunity to explore your experiences in a confidential and welcoming space.
I hold my clients at the heart of how I work and draw on a variety of therapeutic approaches in response to your needs and what may arise in our work together. My approach is largely humanistic and relational. This means that I believe you are an expert on yourself and we will work collaboratively to explore your emotional difficulties and to help you resource yourself in the future.
For many people, coming to counselling is the first time they may feel heard, seen, accepted and fully understood – and I believe this unconditional acceptance lies at the core of the possibility of lasting change.
Internal conflict and mental distress can have a damaging impact on both our psychological and physical health. I therefore take an embodied holistic approach, attending to mind and body, recognising and noticing body sensations as a door to connecting to our emotional selves.
