About me and my therapy practice

Covid-19 update: I am currently providing online counselling over Zoom. I also offer telephone counselling.

Down, depressed and hopeless? Beset by anxiety? Or just feeling stuck, inadequate or disconnected? I'll do my best to understand what you're going through and help you recover so you can live in a more fulfilling way.

In the safe and confidential space of counselling, you can tell me about your experiences and voice your feelings, however troubling they might be. This in itself can bring relief and healing.

Through our work, you may also reach a new understanding of the causes of your unhappiness. This can help you escape the shackles of the past so you can respond differently to life.

Ultimately, counselling can help you make changes so you can lead a richer, fuller and more satisfying life.

Of course, there can be no guarantees, but in my experience most people find they make real progress from counselling. For some, it can be life-changing.

Practice description

I'm a humanistic and integrative counsellor. Basically, this means I believe in your potential to make changes that will help you lead a fulfilling life. And that I recognise the value of a range of different therapeutic approaches and will work with you to find what suits you best.

Much of my training has been in the person-centred and the psychodynamic schools of counselling. The person-centred approach sees human beings as having an innate tendency to develop towards our full potential. However, this process can be blocked or distorted by certain life experiences. Meanwhile, psychodynamic theory stresses the importance of past experience in shaping current behaviour, relationships and difficulties.

My experience

I’ve been a counsellor for more than 10 years. As well as seeing clients privately, I’ve worked as a counsellor for the NHS and Relate and also in schools, an FE college and, for the past five years, at the University of Bath.

I’ve worked with hundreds of people - adults, young people and children - experiencing all kind of problems, especially anxiety and low mood/depression.

Much of my recent work has been with university students, older adolescents and men at or near midlife.

My first session

I appreciate that coming to counselling can be daunting and may take a lot of courage. We'll discuss what you hope to get from counselling and we can agree how we'll work together. You can also ask me any questions you might have about the process.

If you don't think the first session has been helpful, I won't charge you for it.
