About me and my therapy practice

Do you feel overwhelmed by your life and your emotions? Do you feel constantly preoccupied by thoughts and worried about what others think? Perhaps you find the reality of parenting much harder and more frustrating than you imagined and you are always annoyed with your partner and children. Maybe anxiety is causing you to feel sick and tense at all times.

It can be hard to imagine things can be different but counselling and psychotherapy can help.

I help stressed, anxious and overwhelmed people to find a sense of peace and to grow more comfortable with their emotional world.

I can help you to:

• Feel less overwhelmed and anxious by exploring your emotional reality and discovering the resources you need to move forward

• Feel more grounded and less like your emotions are ruling you, using a range of techniques including mindfulness, breath work, depth psychology, energy and bodywork

• Be more confident in your choices and clearer in your decision making by reconnecting to your deep self and discovering a sense of meaning and purpose

• Feel calmer and less stressed as a parent by exploring your behaviour patterns and examining your own childhood

• Find some respite from your constant worry by uncovering the deep sources of your negative thought patterns

• Discover, and connect with, your values thereby empowering you to move forward

I am a BACP Registered Counsellor and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with 7 years’ experience working in private practice.

My first session

I offer an integrative approach to counselling and psychotherapy, meaning that I draw on a variety of techniques and therapeutic interventions that I tailor to your individual needs. My approach is founded on the principle that every individual has a vast potential to live a rich and fulfilling life. I use a psychospiritual framework which means that while acknowledging the pain and difficulties you experience, I believe that something is seeking expression through what you bring to the session. What troubles you will become the working material for realising a sense of harmony and fulfilment.

I will work with you at depth, which means that I believe all experience, from the beginning of life, plays a role in the development and functioning of your personality, often unconsciously. We learn to adapt to our environment, often at the cost of more creative, vulnerable and unique aspects of ourselves. Learning how you have been limited by aspects of your past often enables new and fulfilling ways of living to develop. As I help you to connect to your inner sense of wisdom and knowing, new possibilities will open up.


My standard fee is £45 per session. 

From Sept 2020, I will have a limited number of low cost appointments available (suggested fee £25/session) to those with the intention of working together for at least a year in weekly therapy, whilst I complete some further training.  Please enquire for further information.  

Next Steps

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your circumstances. I offer a free short phone consultation to address any questions or concerns you may have prior to arranging an initial appointment.  If we decide to work together, sessions would be held weekly, either on an open ended basis or for an agreed time period. I work via online video and face to face in Bath.
