I work from the Practice Rooms in central Bath, the rooms offer a quiet and peaceful environment for clients to feel safe and relaxed in order to explore any issues which may arise. Counselling can support you by enabling you to get in touch with feelings or emotions which may have previously been too painful or frightening for you to feel. I work with many different issues with special interest in

If you struggle to fall asleep, can't stay asleep, wake up too early or wake up and do not feel refreshed in the morning, then I can help you. I also help parents with children who do not sleep through the night or who struggle to get to sleep with anxiety. I studied insomnia at the University of Oxford and started helping people with their sleeping problems at Trouble Sleeping in 2006. I take a thorough medical and sleep history to discover why you aren't sleeping well, and then I suggest specific tailored cognitive and behavioural changes to help you to overcome your sleep issues.

I am an experienced and qualified counsellor. I understand how difficult it is to contact a counsellor when the time for change has come for you. It is a courageous decision to come to counselling and you are not alone in how you feel. If you are experiencing concern, stress or distress the feelings of anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts may also be present. Counselling offers you the space to ground yourself and work out a better way forward for you, the mixture of feelings can become clearer by the process of counselling. I will work with you to understand the challenges you face and changes you wish to make.

Counselling is for anyone who feels they need help. That help could be coming to terms with a particular issue in your life or learning to manage difficult and upsetting feelings. I provide a safe and confidential environment where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Although support may be available from family, friends and colleagues; it is often helpful to step outside of these relationships and speak to a professional who has no other emotional involvement in your life. ​

My focus is on creating a warm and accepting environment where each person is accepted unconditionally. There is no personal, relationship or family issue that will either surprise or deter me from working with you and the members of your family to hopefully find solutions and resolve past or current conflicts. Each person has their own perception of the story to tell and you are given time and space to explore and express these thoughts and feelings without blame or recrimination from others. I offer you a safe space in the presence of your loved ones in order for you to claim your identity and step into your true potential.

I appreciate that people seek therapy for a variety of reasons and know this can feel daunting for many. My approach is warm, compassionate, and collaborative. This provides the trust and safety to address difficulties and work towards change. I value the individuality of each person I work with. I use this to explore how your life history and personal circumstances have influenced ways of thinking, feeling, and relating to others. I can support you to identify your goals for therapy and enhance your strengths to achieve these.

Thoughts, feelings concerns cannot be deleted and the harder you try to avoid or suppress them the greater the hold they have and the more they will interrupt your daily life. As daunting as it feels, the way to manage difficult thoughts is to explore and understand why it is that they are making you feel a certain way, whether they have a purpose whether they are rooted in your past and affecting you in the here and now. Through exploration comes understanding. Through understanding comes acceptance and with that the freedom to choose how you move forward.

Finding the right therapist can feel challenging, which is why I offer a free 20 minute consultation, to give us an opportunity talk about what it is that you are looking to gain from counselling and discuss how the process works. Entering counselling can feel like a daunting process but at this very moment you are taking the first steps towards creating the changes you wish to see in your life whether you are looking for help with a specific issue, or for personal growth. Counselling offers you the opportunity to break down walls, un-bottle hidden emotions and make sense of feelings and experiences that are troubling you.

Are you feeling lost and confused? Are thoughts whirling in your head leaving you feeling exhausted? Maybe you have a major life decision to make, or have had to adjust to a change that you did not want? Do all your relationships end the same way, and you want to learn how to stop repeating the pattern? Whatever reason you have for looking for counselling, I’d like to reassure you that I have probably already helped someone in your situation, and I can help you. The first step, asking for help, is the hardest.

All of us struggle at points in our life, disappointment, stress, loneliness, failure, self-esteem and relationship issues, to name only a few. I offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space to share your thoughts and issues. Our collaboration and relationship is key to the therapy taking place. Past experiences contribute to how we think, feel and behave today, resulting in negative outcomes. This awareness of our past can bring about new feelings and behaviours, allowing for change. I can help with work stress/marital issues/codependence/self-esteem/depression/bereavement/trust issues/life transitions and career changes.
