I’m an integrative practitioner who uses person-centred counselling skills combined with a psychodynamic approach to support individuals on their journey of personal growth and development.
I work from the Practice Rooms in central Bath, the rooms offer a quiet and peaceful environment for clients to feel safe and relaxed in order to explore any issues which may arise. Counselling can support you by enabling you to get in touch with feelings or emotions which may have previously been too painful or frightening for you to feel.
Therapy creates a nurturing space for connection needs to emerge, particularly needs that have been shut down for a very long time. Therapy lets us feel those needs again in a natural way and helps us to get to know the anger, fear or shame that can be tangled up with needing. I’ve worked with a variety of different issues and use my own personal journey through therapy to offer an insightful and empathetic counselling relationship.
A therapeutic relationship is unlike any other relationship; it involves 50 minutes of time dedicated to you; my role as your therapist is to walk alongside you on your path of self-discovery and acceptance. I have a very strong intuitive sense of what clients may need within the therapeutic setting.
I have worked with trauma, anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, addictions and self-harm. I can help to find links between one’s history and current ways of interacting in the world. Together we can explore, gain insight, and help you to move forward in your life.
Initially, I offer a brief phone conversation for you to get a feel of how I work, and to ask any questions which may arise. I also am available for any questions via email. Then we can arrange for face to face appointments at a time that suits you. My fees are £50 for a 50-minute session.
