I am also a GSRD, sex positive counsellor who can provide a LGBTQ + focused counselling environment.
I am experienced in providing counselling to adults in person and I am ACTO certified for online and telephone counselling. I use an integrative humanistic approach where I will walk alongside you within your process while providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. I will challenge you when it may be helpful to unlock and discover more about you or your mental health. I will also safely encourage you to connect with your emotions as we work together with no pressure to go any deeper than you are comfortable going, as we build a unique and trusting counselling relationship to reach your goals.

I specialise with the LGBT + community, including their family and friends. I can offer a non-judgemental, gentle, accepting confidential space for you to share your issues and concerns, knowing you will not be rejected or discriminated against. I have lived experience of transgender identities, as my son is transgender . I have witnessed the high mental health conditions, suicidal ideation, including self-harm, and loss faced by LGBT + individuals that I have counselled, along with the hurdles my son has encountered during his transition. I would like to walk with you along your pathway, and consider myself privileged to do so.

Additionally, I specialise in working with issues surrounding gender, sexuality and identity, and the specific needs of the LGBTQIA +/ GSRD community.
Asking yourself how you can make your life more meaningful, in spite of whatever issue you may be struggling with? Counselling can help you make sense of it and move forward. I provide a safe, engaging, and supportive space for you to explore any issue that is troubling you. The ultimate goal would be to help you create a more meaningful life and new ways of approaching your relationship with yourself and others.

We can all struggle with our relationships, both sexually & emotionally, and talking about these problems can be particularly daunting. These struggles can take many forms, ranging from conflict difficulties, marital problems, pain during intercourse, a lack of desire, erectile dysfunction, sexual identity, childhood trauma affecting our adult relationships and many others. Taking the first step to seek out therapy is a difficult one, but one that could help to break the cycle we are currently playing out. I provide the same warmth and care to all members of society. LGBTQ +, kink and fetish friendly.

Sometimes we need someone to witness our experience, to validate our struggles. This sounds simple, yet many of us often feel like we can't get it from people in our lives. As a therapist, it all begins with me getting to know your perspective, to see your world through your eyes as best I can. You might feel you know exactly why you seek therapy, or it may seem less clear right now — either way, you probably want something to change. Perhaps you feel aspects of your life are 'stuck', or feel overwhelmed by emotions, thoughts, or other difficulties that seem impossible to move through.

Counselling may be of help to you at times of crisis, to help you work through a particular problem, or to address thoughts and feelings that are interfering with your ability to live your life in the way that you want to. If you feel like you might benefit from counselling, then you probably would. Together, we can work out what you need from counselling, and we can decide between us whether I'm able to help.

If you are struggling with depression, difficulties in relationships, grief, anxiety or trauma, then the process of counselling can be deeply transformative. I offer a human-to-human therapeutic relationship. I'm non-judgmental, deeply empathic and compassionate; with years of experience as a humanistic therapist, I walk alongside my clients accompanying them on their journey of healing, awareness and change. I do this by deep active listening and bring anything on the edge of awareness into the light, through a client-led approach.

I am a counsellor offering talking therapy to adults and teenagers in the Bath area. My approach is completely non-judgemental and I use the therapeutic model or combination of models that best suits the individual and the problems that he or she is facing. Amongst the models I use are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) (including specialist forms such as Exposure and Response Prevention for OCD, CBT-E for Eating disorders, and Third Wave CBT such as ACT), as well as IPSRT for depression, and Person Centred counselling for those who do not feel comfortable with a more structured approach.

Are you constantly experiencing the breakdown of relationships leaving you feeling distressed, bewildered, let down and perhaps even angry with yourself for repeating these patterns? It can be devastating to keep finding ourselves stuck in this way. Whether in intimate relationships, family dynamics, friendships or work situations, I can help you explore these issues, in the hope of understanding their origins and gradually healing yourself, thus developing the possibility of healthier relationships with others. Maybe you have experienced some of the above and are also in the Creative/Performing Arts Community or Film/ Media.

If you change nothing, nothing changes but it can be hard to know where to begin. I feel it starts with you being heard and valued. Having your story and your feelings witnessed and validated is extraordinarily powerful and provides the catalyst for change. You will gain a clarity and a sense of perspective as well as an understanding of why you behave in the way you do. Talking to me will feel different from talking to a friend or family member. I will offer you insights and reflections, not opinions or solutions. I am interested in you and your experiences and they matter to me, but as I'm not involved I can remain objective.

I offer a safe and confidential space where you will have the chance to share your problems, your difficult feelings, your pain and your life story. Talking about our life honestly and openly, with an empathic and non-judgemental therapist can be a deeply healing process. Having a space where we can be fully ourselves, where we’re invited to slow down, breathe and investigate our inner world and our emotions is necessary, today, more than ever. We live busy lives and for many, it is difficult to stop and notice, most of the time, what is going on inside us. As we reconnect to our feelings and our essence there is an immediate sense

Having a fulfilling and lasting relationship is something we all aspire to, but it isn't always easy. Relationships can go wrong for all sorts of reasons and it's difficult to know where to go for help. In my work as a sex and relationship therapist, I work with both couples and individuals to not only get your relationship back on track and improve communication, but also to help it develop so that it achieves its full potential. Often, problems in a relationship can be an opportunity to develop it so get in touch with me if you need some help either to heal a crisis or to make your relationship the best it can be.

Do you sometimes feel lost or unsure about what your purpose is? Why you are here? Why life has happened as it did so far? Are you struggling to get through a tough life transition, loss or grief? Are you at times not sure what you have to offer to the world; what you are meant to do or what you really want? Do you find it difficult to trust others or are wondering how to improve your relationships with others? I offer a safe, unbiased space to talk that is removed from your direct family and friends. This freedom to speak openly can be helpful when trying to talk through tricky and uncomfortable feelings.
