About me and my therapy practice
I am an Integrative Counsellor, this means that I use a variety of therapeutic approaches to suit you as an individual. My background is in Nursing and I have 18 years experience of working in the NHS. This experience has given me the foundations to work as a Counsellor in a caring, non judgemental and empathetic way with an ability to form strong therapeutic relationships with my clients. I will work gently and collaboratively with you, drawing on theoretical approaches to support you. I currently work for two charities and one other organisation, as well as in my private practice.
I am experienced in working with a broad range of issues and have an interest in all aspects of perinatal care from fertility struggles, pregnancy, miscarriage, loss, birth and post natal support. I practise in central Bath and additionally I hold a qualification to work by telephone and online, which enables me to reach clients from further afield.
I trained on a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Accredited course and I am fully insured and a member of BACP and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I offer short or longer term counselling, so you can decide on the length of therapy.
My first session
The first session provides a foundation for future sessions. We will discuss the contract so that there is clarity in, for example, confidentiality and session timing. Additionally, in this session, I will ask you questions about what you’re struggling with now and what brings you to counselling, it will also be helpful for me to gain some insight into your past. Together we will look at what you would like to focus on and gain from the counselling. I can describe how we may work together with the opportunity for you to ask me any questions.
