I have worked for over 12 years within specialist NHS services with young people and adults experiencing complex depression , anxiety and trauma.
With over 12 years of clinical experience, I offer a safe space to help you find ways to cope with the inevitable suffering we can all face in life, and move towards living a more meaningful life. My work primarily involves offering individuals the time to feel listened to and heard, to explore and reconnect to our authentic inner self that may be deeply over-shadowed by fear, traumatic memories, self-doubt, difficult thoughts, worries, sadness, loss of motivation and/or feeling stuck in life. Alongside CBT and more traditional ways of working, I also offer the opportunity to work within spiritual dimensions of psychotherapy.

My expertise lies in assessing and treating individuals following one or more traumatic events, which can lead to a number of moderate to severe symptoms or diagnoses. These include; obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), personality disorders, chronic depression and anxiety, insomnia, low self-esteem and confidence, and, in some cases, physical disabilities including, chronic fatigue syndrome or ME. I also work with clients experiencing mild to moderate mental health difficulties, which do not have a traumatic origin, including, relationship difficulties and life challenges.

My clients are at the heart of every session, creating a welcoming, safe and relaxed atmosphere where communication can flow freely and openly. The most important thing is that you are comfortable, at ease and feel able to talk. I aim to help you see your challenges more clearly and to face the problems with less anxiety and tension. It can be an opportunity to think and speak your truth without fear of judgement. I am trained to incorporate techniques associated with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Guided Visualisation, Psycho-dynamic Therapy and Transactional Analysis amongst others into my work.

Hello, my name is Lee. Working in a peaceful, rural location - and also from a town centre practice, in Yeovil - I provide a safe, confidential and supportive space to explore the difficulties you have. What is troubling you? People seek therapy for many reasons. Perhaps you are struggling with a personal relationship, anxiety, or depression is preventing you from thriving? Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed by a lack of identity or meaning, or your relationship with food is getting you down/out of control? Having worked in the NHS as a specialist dietitian, I can also offer therapy around food, weight & body-related issues.

It can be difficult to know where to start when feeling depressed or anxious. ​ I appreciate that many people become a little anxious at the prospect of an intense atmosphere in a counselling room. Thats not how I work though. My first aim is to help you relax. To see that yes, it is a 'safe and confidential environment for you to talk about anything that you want'. But there's no need for it to be a heavy and intense atmosphere either. I believe we can be practical, pragmatic and make some real changes without sacrificing empathy or compassion. I have over 20 years experience.

Hi, I'm Julie, and I am passionate about working with people who have experienced abuse or trauma, whether it be sexual, physical or emotional. When we experience trauma we lose part of who we truly are because of the after effects, such as anxiety, depression , panic attacks, flashbacks and dissociation (when we feel distanced from our emotions or ‘spaced out’, as if we’re living on autopilot). I love helping people rediscover who they really are by creating an environment in which they feel safe and completely accepted. I don't analyse you but with careful listening will know what we need to work on.

I work with helping clients with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression , low self-esteem and panic attacks.
Perhaps you feel lost, ungrounded, unable to understand your emotional way of being and always seem to be at conflict with yourself and others in your life. Perhaps you suffer from anxiety, stress, OCD, addictions, lack of self-worth. Perhaps you are grieving a loss of a loved one, relationship break-up or a job. In these times of stress and anxiety, one needs to find one’s inner core strength to be able to be fully grounded and able to fully move into life with clarity and focus. With my counselling skills and our teamwork, you can become the person you were born to be.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
