Welcome

Thank you for visiting my Frome, Trowbridge & Bradford-on Avon website.

I am a fully qualified, UKCP registered psychotherapist; BACP registered psychotherapeutic counsellor; and a trained supervisor. My approach is Humanistic/Integrative. In all, I have over 30 years experience as a therapist in the NHS and private practice.

My varied trainings and clinical experience mean that I can help you with most of life’s issues and problems. I have provided thousands of counselling/psychotherapy sessions to clients.

I have been practising as a freelance psychotherapist and counsellor in Frome, Trowbridge and Bradford-on Avon for several years, working with individuals, couples, therapists in training and supervisees.

The psychotherapy and counselling I offer provide the opportunity for increasing self awareness, in the context of an accepting, warm and supportive relationship. We can all experience difficulties at times and feel overwhelmed, confused, scared or alone. It is not always easy or practical to confide in friends or family. In such situations, counselling can often help.

I facilitate my clients to make informed, wise choices in order for them to live how they want to live.

Be as you are
And so see
who you are
and how you are.

Let go for a moment or two
of what you ought to do
and discover what you do do

Risk a little if you can

Feel your own feelings
Say your own words
Think your own thoughts
Be your own self

Discover

Let the plan for you
grow from within you

– Fritz Perls
