About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Psychotherapist offering both long and short-term counselling or psychotherapy for adults and teenagers. I have a private practice in Frome and have more than 20 years experience.
Most of my work is face to face but, depending on circumstance, I also offer online sessions.
I have experience of working in a variety of settings, from GP surgeries, prisons, within the NHS and for a local charity. I also offered counselling within a school for eight years.
I supervise trainee counsellors and counsellors in private practice.
I am an accredited member of BACP and am registered with The British Psychoanalytic Council.
I aim to offer a safe place in which to think about issues that are causing distress. Sometimes the root of the problem seems obvious, at other times you might just feel overwhelmed and confused. It can be a relief to talk to someone who will listen without judging and reflect on what you say. This can help you recover perspective, gain insight and find new resources within yourself.
My first session
An initial appointment will last about an hour. This will provide an opportunity to explore the reasons for coming to counselling and will be the time to decide whether the type of counselling/psychotherapy I offer is right for you. If you decide to start counselling/psychotherapy then the duration of the counselling and the fees would be discussed at this point. From then on each session will last 50 minutes.
