Counselling is for anyone and everyone. You might have a specific thing you want to work on – pain from your past or worries about the future. Or you might have a general sense that something is stuck, that this isn’t quite the life you’d expected. ​Counselling offers the opportunity for us to develop a creative partnership , where we can work together to explore both what is troubling you and your potential in life and to support you to find a sense of freedom to be your true self. Counselling is not an easy option, it can uncover painful feelings, but it can be a step on the way to feeling better and more at peace with yourself.

A welcoming integrative counsellor, I invite you to tell me your story. You might come to counselling through a desire to shape your future, to process experience, to discuss a long-term situation, because of stressful events, or perhaps you have no idea why you feel that there is something wrong. I trained as a counsellor for NHS staff, and I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for Bath Mind. I am ready to listen, to find out what you want from counselling, and to be alongside you while you contemplate changes to your life. I welcome your informal questions over email or telephone call.

Starting the journey to emotional well-being may seem daunting, but with the help of a kind, professional and deeply empathic therapist alongside you, it can become the most important undertaking you ever begin. Whatever issues you are struggling with right now, change is possible and inevitable as soon as you choose to explore exactly what you need and which parts of your life are not working as well as you hope right now. As a therapist I walk beside my clients and together we can explore exactly what it is you need to help you make the changes necessary to reclaim a full and balanced life.

Hi, I'm Sandra and I help people with high anxiety and low self esteem to feel BETTER! Having one or both of these inter-related conditions can be very frustrating. Perhaps you don't believe you are worthy of happiness, success or love. Low self worth can suck the colour from your life, leaving you feeling empty, disconnected and worthless. You might feel undervalued, lonely and disempowered. It does NOT have to be this way. What if you COULD feel better about who you are? Less anxious and more hopeful about the future? Hypnotherapy could help you to identify and change unhelpful subconscious beliefs and move on - FAST!

You are probably feeling very upset, alone and confused, maybe even ashamed and wondering if counselling could help? Everyone who comes to therapy has a unique set of issues but the underlying need to share the distress and be understood, is true for everyone. If you are struggling with parenting, postnatal depression, miscarriage or your identity as a woman you are not alone. I have lots of experience working with women (and men) who are struggling with family life and want to feel better than they currently do. I also help young people with identity and self esteem issues, self harm, anxiety and sad feelings

I can help if you are looking for a therapist because you are experiencing distress. This may have started with an event that left you feeling out-of-control; a loved-one dying, a great change happening in your life, or maybe illness striking you or somebody that you care for? Or, the problem may be just the opposite - nothing has happened. You feel stuck and unhappy, and you would like to understand the reasons why and make some changes in your life. Either way, you would like to find greater ease in your life, and right now this feels tough-going on your own.

Being a human is hard. Each and every one of us, at some point in our lives, finds ourselves lost and stuck. We realize that this is not the life we planned for, that we are not the people we wanted to be and we are not moving any closer to the life we want. My work focuses on helping people settle into those stuck moments, work on the uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, and to take steps toward the life that they want. I strongly believe that psychotherapy is not only a place to overcome certain difficulties, but also an opportunity for individuals to get to know themselves better and live a meaningful life.
