Wondering what to do, unsure what or who can help. And how? Whatever is troubling you, whatever is getting you down you don't have to struggle alone. Talking to someone outside your circle of family, friends or even colleagues at work can be the start of a new path. A path where you can discover how you got to this place in your life. And perhaps more importantly what it is you are seeking.
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.
Dr Kelly Southgate (DCLinPsy, MSc, BSc) is a senior clinical psychologist, offering evidence-based psychological therapy for adults and young people for a variety of difficulties including; anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement, anger management, low self-esteem, stress, and trauma. Dr. Southgate offers a friendly and down-to-earth approach to therapy, providing a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space to talk. Treatment is tailored towards individual needs and circumstances, with the emphasis on working towards achieving goals in a way that suits the individual.
I can work with you around family issues, teen problems, child behaviour, ASC issues, illness and disability. I will support, collaborate and try to make sense of what is going on. All things eventually pass - I will offer to weather the storm with you. I won’t be judging you or not taking you seriously. We will work together - and it will be work - but we will also aim to have fun and be creative in our work.
Whether you have recently experienced a crisis in life, or have a more enduring sense of something feeling wrong, I offer a compassionate space for you to explore whatever issue brings you to therapy. Beginning to talk about yourself and what you are dealing with may feel new or even unnerving, so I am always mindful to work with you at your own pace. In the process of therapy many different issues may come up for you, and the space provided by therapy allows us to work through these issues together.
You might be struggling with something difficult in the here and now, such as the loss of a loved one, or the breakdown of a relationship. Or perhaps you’re aware of vague, underlying feelings of sadness, anxiety or anger. Maybe you feel trapped in a cycle of repeated disappointments with partners, friends and careers and don’t know why. Whether you know what the problem is, or even if you don’t, therapy can help. It’s an opportunity to explore yourself; to examine feelings, thoughts and motivations and gain understanding - the first step towards navigating a different, happier course.
Hi, welcome, you may be here because you're struggling at the moment, and maybe you experienced some hardships in the past, but would like to change how things are for you, and build a better life now.
I am a Clinical Psychologist with more than 20 years experience of working with young people, adults (including couples) and families. I work in both the NHS and private practice, in person and online. I am open to working with men and women, younger and older with a broad range of difficulties including those affecting mental health and emotional wellbeing, behaviour, relationships and learning.
There are many things which can be problematic for people. Confusing and difficult emotions,relationship difficulties,work concerns, pain and longterm illness, difficult upbringing and life experiences are just some of the things that people come to see me about. The list of what I treat is varied. My view is that everyone has the inherent ability to become their own therapist and that my role, whatever the issues are is to help facilitate long term change and growth through understanding, questioning and encouragement within the Cognitive Behavioural framework.
Do you feel like it is difficult to reach your partner emotionally, are you being stone walled, afraid of conflict or are you people pleasing for a quiet life? Do you have a pattern of being submissive, passive aggressive or unable to effectively communicate your wants and needs? Do you feel like you and your partner don’t understand each other or feel as if you have married your mother or father? Couples therapy aims to uncover reactionary aspects of yourself that lead to discontent and a loss of connection and intimacy in your relationship. We will examine unhelpful dynamics and behavioural patterns and explore where you are stuck
Hi, I'm Elaine. I'm a child & adolescent therapist & counsellor who supports children, teens & their families to manage big feelings, stressful situations and other life challenges.

What do you need? It is sometimes helpful to ask yourself - "What are my main goals as I go for counselling? What is important to me right now? How would I like to change?" Often all someone needs is some quality time and space to be able to be themselves, and be heard - not feeling judged no matter what they say, and feel some compassion from somebody who cares. In the busy world in which we live, I provide that space for you to unwind, off-load and rediscover who you are, as well as deal with the problems you are experiencing - and change.
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.
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.
I have practised as a Chartered Clinical Psychologist since 2002 in different clinical NHS settings (GP surgeries and hospitals), private healthcare (outpatient clinics and residential placements) and universities (therapist on randomised controlled trials). I have a wealth of knowledge, experience and specialist skills in psychological assessment, formulation, treatment and consultation. I am an accredited Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist. I am also experienced in using evidence-based techniques from Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Family Therapy, Schema-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness and Psychodynamic approaches.
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
I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor supporting people who are anxious or grieving, frightened, lonely, struggling with sadness or in distress. I offer a warm and genuine welcome, an open heart and mind and time & space to be with you, to be alongside you for as much time as you need. After working as a paramedic for over 10 years I decided I wanted to retrain as a counsellor. I have continued to work for the NHS and find that people can be surprisingly resilient with the right emotional support.
