About me and my therapy practice

How I work

Coming from a creative background I am particularly interested in some of the challenges that creative people struggle with. Depression, alienation, scapegoating, addictions and trauma. I combine some of the principles of relational psychotherapy with TA, using talking and creative methods when this might be helpful.

I am very influenced by Carl Jung and interested in working with the shadow and dreams.

About therapy

At different times in our lives, many of us need a little extra help. You may be feeling stuck and not knowing how to move forward, in a relationship, at work, with family issues, parenting, even bereavement. Or you might be struggling with depression, anxiety, or behaviours that aren’t serving you. Most people find it really helps to have someone impartial and non-judgemental to talk to. Whatever it is, I can offer you a way of addressing the issues you’re facing and taking greater control over life.

People usually seek therapy because they want to change something. It might be the way they feel or the way they behave; it might be how they believe other people see them, or how they see themselves. It might be the things they think about or dwell upon, or the way they get on with others. Therapy offers you a space to talk about what it is you want to change and to consider how to bring that change about – or simply finding healing through working through grief and trauma.

The space I provide is safe, confidential and non-judgemental. I see myself as someone to support you on your journey, whether that be reflecting on the past or making plans for the future, having someone to hold that space for your inner exploration can support transformation and change. I will be someone to discuss your direction with; a second pair of eyes to see things from a different perspective. I am also a highly-trained professional who can offer insights to make sense of your experience.

Practice description

I am a psychotherapist in advanced training. I work in private practice and in the charity sector, offering counselling and psychotherapy. I have a diploma in Transactional Analysis (TA) Psychotherapy from The Metanoia Institute and am studying for an MSc in Psychotherapy at Exeter University I have training in Integrative Arts Therapy, the Enneagram, Voice Dialogue and Psychodrama, so I bring an eclectic mix to my client work.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, a trainee therapist member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy and member of The Metanoia Institute. I operate within the Code of Ethics and Professional Practice of these organisations. 

My first session

Before committing to therapy, I can offer you a free 30 minute consultation. That way we can meet one another, answer any questions you may have, and talk about how we might approach the issues you want to address.

My practice is in Bath and Wiltshire, however during the Covid-19 pandemic I am working exclusively online.

I can offer short or long term work starting with an assessment session to see how and if we want to work together (this is a paid session, not the free 30 minute consultation).

Sessions last for 50 minutes and cost £45-55. Please ask about sliding scale prices.
