Counsellor MBACP (Accredited)
I am an experienced practitioner conveniently situated five minutes walk from Central Bath. I work in person and online, with adults and young people (18+) exploring issues and concerns that may be inhibiting personal wellbeing or fulfilment.
Why you might be considering therapy:
You may be exploring therapy to support you at a difficult time in your life or, as a way to address ongoing challenges with your feelings, behaviours or within your relationships.
Each person brings their unique life experience and personal perspective to therapy. As an integrative counsellor, I am experienced in using a range of therapeutic techniques and together we can discover which kind of therapy, or combination of approaches, could fit well for you.
How do I know which type of therapy is best for me?
With each person, I seek to establish building core conditions of trust, safety and mutual respect for our work to be comfortably held within. In addition to these core conditions, there may be specific types of therapy that provide a distinct fit for your present situation.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT): A talking therapy that explores the present relationships between thoughts, feelings, behaviours and physical symptoms. This way of working is structured and practical, involving paper based exercises and tasks to explore between sessions. CBT has been shown to be an effective tool in treating anxiety, depressive symptoms, phobias and OCD.
Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT): Also a talking therapy and similar to CBT in that it concentrates on links between actions, thoughts, and feelings however CAT explores where behaviours originated from and how they might be affecting current relationships or interactions. CAT also explores how to manage cyclical behaviours if they have returned over time.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): ACT develops psychological flexibility and is a form of behavioural therapy that combines mindfulness skills with the practice of self-acceptance. ACT aims to maximise human potential for a rich, full and meaningful life; to cultivate health, vitality and well-being through mindful values-based living.
Trauma Recovery: If you have experienced a recent trauma or are coming to terms with a past trauma, we would focus initial support techniques on stabilising physical symptoms before moving towards other aspects of your recovery journey.
Mindfulness/Body integration work/Emotional regulation:
Exploring the role of our nervous system and its influence on our behaviours and emotional responses can support multiple aspects of therapeutic work including: management of stress, anxiety, depressive symptoms, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, sleep hygiene and confidence levels.
