If you are feeling that you need help in your life for whatever reason, perhaps in your relationship, family dynamic, a work situation, with depression, anxiety or your mental health; for significant loss or past or present trauma; if life is just too challenging to cope with; if the way ahead feels uncertain; if you are without hope and feeling isolated or overwhelmed; or if you simply want to explore a problem or experience to help your general wellbeing and happiness, we can work together.

I specialise in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) along side other integrative therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness and hypnotherapy. The framework my approach is built on is REBT, yet as each of us are different, I integrate the other therapies to suit each individual. Some clients benefit more from rationalising thoughts and beliefs, while some need help getting over the past, and some need help with moving forward. I work with my clients to address issues, create and reach goals, and make the most of life.

Hi I’m Diana. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. Are you struggling and feel as if no one ‘gets’ it? Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed or just lost. Sometimes, life throws challenges at us when we least expect them and are least prepared for the impact they may have on our lives. I can help you to make sense of these experiences and emotions. By offering you space to explore your thoughts we can work together to help you move forward. We can find ways to overcome negative thoughts and to stop you feeling stuck.

By being with you and listening to your story, I believe you will find different perspectives and new ways to look at life. I aim to ensure clients are engaged and committed to the counselling process and are therefor achieving the best possible outcomes from their therapy. You do not need to be crystal clear about your own reasons or goals for coming to therapy.

I started training to be a counsellor because I had previously been through some deeply painful times in my life and having both survived – and benefited - from that experience, I decided to dedicate myself to supporting others so they could go on the similar journey. After several years I decided to further my studies at a post-graduate level and trained to be a psychotherapist so I could work at a deeper level and this has been most helpful. I also found that I was being approached by couples who wanted help with their relationship so I decided to train in couples psychotherapy which has been incredibly useful.

I am happy to work with anyone who has ever identified with the following Whether you are bumping up against the end of a significant relationship, a spiritual or existential crisis or something as vague as a constant state of dread and feelings of hopelessness. You may have noticed that you tend to keep on making the same mistakes over and over again, repeating patterns you feel powerless to change. You may be fearful that you are not an agent in your own life, that you are without a sense of direction and feel empty much of the time. Or you may feel the need to face the traumas and abuse that have haunted you since childhood

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.

Life can often feel challenging and even overwhelming at times. The therapeutic relationship between therapist and client, once formed is a safe, warm, non judgmental space that will allow the client to explore their worries and make sense of your feelings.

Talking about your experience in a confidential therapeutic space, can help you to better understand what is going on for you, empowering you to make positive changes to promote your well-being. Using a range of therapeutic techniques, my practice is informed by the needs of the individual client. I work with adults and teenagers who struggle with anxiety, anger, depression, loss, trauma and many other common causes of poor mental health. My primary approach is TA which can help with communication and behaviour by understanding the Self, and thus improving interpersonal relationships and self-esteem.

Life always throws us difficult stuff to deal with; it wouldn’t be life without it. Sometimes we can shrug these things off, yet at other times they can have an extremely debilitating effect upon us. Sometimes things happen and we bury them, they remain hidden but still exert a force upon us and our behaviour. They can influence us in ways that we would rather they didn’t. Sometimes these things come roaring back at us, out of the blue, unbidden and unwelcome. We all pass through stages in our life where we question everything around us, our relationships, our work, our behaviour and ultimately ourselves.

Although we might not like it much, things are constantly changing and we are challenged to deal with this all the time. Sometimes we cope, yet at other times we get stuck in a hopeless loop. We may seem to deal with a difficulty at the time but things can stay inside, unprocessed, causing problems without us even realising. Our mood and behaviour can feel out of kilter and sometimes we're really not sure why. At other times we know why we're sad, anxious or depressed. We know it would be good to talk about things but it can understandably be hard contemplating opening up about our innermost feelings. At times, we just need to talk.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Somerset are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Somerset then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Somerset, or Child Psychologists in Somerset.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Somerset psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Somerset specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
