Counselling in Bath and Bradford-on-Avon
People come to counselling for a variety of reasons. You may be going through a difficult time, be experiencing difficult feelings, or you may want to develop your self awareness and potential.
I work with adults (18+) with anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, self harm, relationship difficulties, low self esteem, fertility issues, loss, confusion, life transitions amongst other issues. I enjoy working with Students having worked as a counsellor at Bath College and now work with Students who are at University in my private practice. See my page on working with Students here. I also work for BUPA as an Affiliate Employee Assistance Counsellor as well as being a Satellite Counsellor for the Great Western NHS Foundation Trust Staff Support Service, supporting employees who are going through a difficult time. You can find out more about my experience here.
What is counselling?
Counselling is a space to talk one to one about any issue that you wish to. It is a space to be really heard and to explore emotions, thoughts and experiences at your own pace. In talking with a trained professional you may find new ways of coping or moving forwards. Talking confidentially with someone without being judged can be a relief in itself.
How do I work?
We can meet for an initial appointment to discuss why you are seeking support at this time, look at how counselling could support you and think about the number of sessions that feels appropriate. What we discuss is up to you and we go at your pace. I aim to offer a counselling relationship that is based on empathy and respect, believing in the power of being really heard and understood. I aim to offer a confidential and non judgemental space where you can develop self understanding and acceptance. I work in an integrative way, which means I draw on a variety of methods to suit your individual needs and you can find more information about my approach here.
