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.

There are various circumstances which might bring an individual to counselling. Some people may be aware of the cause of their distress e.g. bereavement or difficulties such as addiction that they would like to address. However others may have a feeling of unease but can't seem to put a finger on what might be wrong in their life. Whatever the reason you have chosen to seek help, I will provide you with a safe and confidential space where you will have the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings and we will work together to make sense of your experiences.

"In the heart of difficulty we can find our deepest potential." Are you suffering or feeling blocked in certain areas of your life, somehow know or just hope that things could be different, yet fear opening up to explore that? This is not a sign of failure or weakness – it is simply part of what it means to be human. Living in a body in the world is not easy and we inevitably find ourselves hurt and injured. Counter-intuitively, if we attend to those inner wounds and difficulties we find that some of our deepest gifts and capacities are lying hidden or dormant in those places. That is the secret of the journey of healing in therapy.

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.

We all have times in life when things seem to get on top of us. We may feel confused, anxious or depressed. Sometimes it feels like we are just going round in circles, getting nowhere in particular. Having someone to talk to can lighten the load and this is often easier with someone other than family or friends.
