About me and my therapy practice

I am a compassionate trauma-informed integrative practitioner with my own deeply lived experience and personal journey. I live & work in central Bath. Alongside many trainings over the years, I am committed to my therapeutic practice and my own path of personal development, healing and spiritual enquiry. I’ve walked a diverse path so far through life and this has enabled me to bring understanding to working with many people. Development and practices that sustain and resource me on this journey are somatic meditation, embodied enquiry and the wisdom of the natural world.

Since qualifying as a counsellor, I have worked for ten years within organisations & charities supporting young people, young adults and adults with their emotional health and well-being. I've worked for several years as a counsellor in further education colleges, a school counsellor, as the LGBT+ counsellor for a charity, for an eating disorder charity and with young people and their families within the Family Counselling Trust. I now have a full time private practice in central Bath offering short and longer term counselling and long term psychotherapy. 

Alongside my Person-Centred core training and Somatic Trauma Therapy training, my practice has naturally gravitated to become influenced by the integration of Eastern and Western philosophies about the bodymind and selfhood. I am currently studying a 4 year in-depth psychotherapy training in Mindfulness-Based Core-Process Psychotherapy with the Karuna Institute. Core-Process Psychotherapy enquires into human experience at many different levels. There is a gentle invitation to reconnect to your deeper self, become curious about how present moment experience is arising in the body, bringing spaciousness to the bodymind and developing awareness to how things are from moment to moment. This holistic approach offers a unique way to explore our suffering & well-being. Core-Process Psychotherapy can be described as a Mindfulness-Based approach.

Practice description

My enthusiasm as a therapist embodies the healing qualities of compassion and the wisdom of our somatic archeology involving the connections and un-earthing of the stories that live within our bodies, within our psychology and our spirit. All practising Core-Process psychotherapists are expected to maintain a daily meditation practice. This helps sustain awareness and develop a resonant relational field of presence from which to pay close attention and hold clients at depth. My work is also informed through bodymind theories and practice combining somatic-based trauma therapy, compassion-focused therapy and relational mindfulness which are intrinsic to my therapeutic practice.

I believe that body and mind need to be present for healing to occur. Enabling people to find connections to their inner authenticity and wisdom so they can feel less identified with their traumatic stories, patterns and conditions and more present to their true sense of themselves.

Each therapeutic relationship is unique. My approach is creative and holistic bringing trauma-informed somatic therapy and Core-Process Psychotherapy together, allowing a depth that promotes intentional, and conscious healing. What motivates my work is that I see the potential in every client and honour the wisdom of your own inner healer. My wish is to create opportunities for you to follow your process as it unfolds and reconnect to your deeper sense of self in the present feeling less identified with patterns and disconnection in the past.

I offer Craniosacral Therapy -

My craniosacral work & training with adults & young people incorporates extensions of somatic trauma work developed for working with the effects of trauma on the body & findings about the vagus nerve & the ANS. Therapy is interested in facilitating the body towards intrinsic reorganisations across the body’s tissues, its fluid matrix and its energetic and emotional layers, so that there is a holistic movement towards greater health. The therapy also creates a safe space for traumatic experiences to emerge steadily and move towards resolution and integration in the body without being overwhelming or re-stimulating for the bodymind.

Craniosacral Therapy compliments & integrates effectively alongside the Somatic Trauma Therapy & Core-Process Psychotherapy that I offer at my private practice in a peaceful, calming therapy space.

1 hour Craniosacral Therapy Session £50
