Psychotherapy in Bath

Welcome to my website

I hope you will find the information here useful and helpful

Life can be really tough at times. We can all go through periods when we feel we are constantly struggling to cope, and there are many different reasons why you might want to come to see a psychotherapist:

You might:
  • be experiencing anxiety or depression
  • have issues in your relationship or with your family
  • be feeling stress because of life changes, like bereavement, a health scare or redundancy
  • have difficulties with handling anger
  • have problems stemming from unhappiness in childhood, or other difficulties in the past
  • have experienced trauma from abuse or violence, or being in a difficult relationship.
  • be working through issues connected with gender or sexuality
  • be feeling helpless or overwhelmed in the face of global events and challenges

    One or more of these might be familiar to you. On the other hand, you might simply have a sense that there is something wrong in your life, but you’re not sure exactly what it is. Working with a psychotherapist gives you a regular space in your life where you can talk things through confidentially with someone who will listen to you with care, and, working at a pace that feels right for you, support you in exploring the things in your life that are troubling or challenging you.

    What's the difference between psychotherapy and counselling?

    People often ask me this question, and there's no simple answer - both are talking therapies. Generally, counselling tends to be for a shorter length of time, and is often linked to a particular issue you’re facing at the moment. Psychotherapy tends to be longer-term than counselling, giving us plenty of time to look at challenges and life events that you are facing now, and also explore deeper-seated issues which may have links to your past experiences.

    What kind of psychotherapist are you?

    There is a great deal written about different styles and theories of psychotherapy, and it can all seem complicated and confusing. My particular background is in what’s called humanistic and integrative psychotherapy, which means that I am able to draw on a variety of approaches, always putting you and your experiences at the heart of our work. You can read more about my approach to therapy here.

    I believe, in the end, that our relationship will be the most significant part of our work together. Because I see this as so important in psychotherapy, I suggest that we have an initial appointment so we can meet to see if we would like to work together. If the answer is yes, we would then meet at a regular time each week, giving you plenty of time and space to explore what matters to you.

    You can read more about me here and about my training here.

    Please give me a call on 07521 609038 or email me if you have any questions, or to arrange an initial appointment.

    I really look forward to hearing from you.
