About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified and registered psychodynamic counsellor offering short term counselling and long term therapy to both adults and young people in Frome.
It can be a daunting prospect coming to a counsellor for the first time and I offer a safe and confidential space in which you can explore the difficulties that you are having in your life.
I believe in helping my clients gain insight and understanding into their current situation, which may have roots in the past, to enable them to make changes and move on from a crisis. This may be in time limited work or more longer term therapy in which we can work together at a deeper level.
Training Patient Opportunity
I am currently in training as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with the Severnside Institute for Psychotherapy in Bristol. As part of this training I have availability for a training patient. This is an opportunity to have 3 times weekly therapy for the cost of one session a week for 2 years. Working in this way with a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist can bring about profound change and aid a deeper understanding of the self. Please email me to enquire for more details.
Children and young people:
I have over 20 years experience of working with children and young people in education and caring roles and I have a Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People. I also offer parent support when working with young people.
I am registered with the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapsists) and BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and adhere to their code of ethics.
I have a private and confidential practice room in the center of Frome.
My first session
In the first session we would meet for 50 mins to discuss your needs and the style of counselling that I offer. This is an opportunity for you to meet me and ask questions before deciding if you wish to proceed with the counselling. After that we would meet for weekly sessions for 50 min, ideally at the same time each week.
