About me and my therapy practice
I offer a warm and compassionate space for you to talk about whatever it is that may be troubling you. People often assume that counselling only focuses on the negative but it's much more than that, it's also an opportunity to explore what really matters to you and what inspires you. I am trained to help you to take a step back and to explore what it's really like to be you, guiding you to find new perspective and direction.
As you gain a deeper understanding of yourself, what you want and how you relate to others, your emotional wounds transform into wisdom and your relationships deepen, the burdens of the past and worries for the future become lighter as you begin to live more freely and fully in the present.
Some of the more common issues I work with are family dynamics and difficulties in relationships, life changes and transitions, bereavement, anxiety, stress and trauma as well as a wish for self development and more creative expression.
I am a fully qualified Psychosynthesis counsellor and psychotherapist in training at The Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. Psychosynthesis is often described as a 'soulful psychology' because it offers a hopeful and holistic approach to human growth, blending psychotherapy and neuroscience with Western and Eastern mysticism and philosophy. It recognises that each of us is on a journey through life that is both purposeful and meaningful, even though at times it can be difficult and painful.
As well as my private practice I work for the charity Trauma Breakthrough in Bath providing one to one psychotherapy and group work. I have three years experience working with people affected by cancer and I have worked as a support worker for the domestic abuse charity Fear Less where I continue to run a behavioural change support group for men.
I am passionate about self discovery and I sit alongside my clients with empathy and acceptance, knowing we are both on a journey to become more of who we truly are.
My practice is tucked away in a quiet and discreet setting in the centre of Frome. There is free parking and bicycle storage on site and a peaceful garden to meander through. Local bus routes stop within 5-10 minutes walk and Frome train station is a 15 minute walk away. I also offer sessions online.
My first session
If you'd like to have a relaxed, no obligation conversation to find out if therapy is right for you and how we could work together I offer a free half hour introductory call either online or on the phone.
If you would like to go further we will arrange our first session where we will spend some time exploring what brings you to therapy, your hopes and expectations. I will ask you about your life so far, medical history and anything else you would like to share about yourself. It’s also an opportunity for you to find out more about me and how I work. We will talk through the working agreement that sets out information such as confidentiality and practicalities. If we decide to work together the commitment is for weekly one hour sessions at a mutually agreed time and day. I offer both short and long term therapy. Everyone is unique and it is a collaborative process, we will regularly review our work together, tailoring the therapy to suit you and your needs.
