About me and my therapy practice
I undertook a 4-year training accredited by the BPC and BACP. Prior to this, I was a mental health social worker and have a combined experience of over 20 years supporting people from all walks of life through challenging times.
I place real emphasis on building a relationship of trust and security with my clients, where we can explore present troubles, consider the influence of the past and find hope for the future. I believe that a good therapeutic experience is key in making the links which will enable you to process difficult experiences, survive current challenges and know which choices to make from here in. I work in a non-directive way. You will determine the focus, depth and pace of our work together.
I work with adults of all ages, over the short, medium or long term.
My practice in in the centre of Melksham and situated on the ground floor.
I can help you explore:
Troubled or destructive relationship patterns (family dynamics, couple dynamics, sibling conflicts or dynamics at work).
Life transitions (becoming a parent, relationship breakdown / divorce, menopause, children leaving home, retirement).
Trauma, past or present (bereavement, pregnancy loss, birth trauma, abuse/assault, accidents, chronic illness or acquired disability).
Somatic manifestations of distress (chronic fatigue, chronic pain, eating distress, self-harm or addiction).
Existential fears (questioning meaning and purpose in life, health anxieties, fear of separation or abandonment, fear of loss and death).
General feelings of alienation, disconnection, inadequacy, insecurity, self-blame, guilt or shame.
