Compassionate, qualified, experienced and committed therapy in Taunton and Bristol

Every single one of my clients has unique needs and so is my approach to helping them meet those needs.

I am interested in how you view yourself – what expectations you have for yourself, what standards you hold yourself to, can you be compassionate to yourself or are you more likely to be hard on yourself? Having a strong inner critic can have the same physiological effects on your well being and sense of self as a highly critical partner or parent.

Individual, One to one:

Counselling is a collaborative process – the process relies on both the client and the counsellor working together as a team. It is important for you to want to change and commit to the therapy. You will only heal, change or grow based on how much you are open, willing and ready.

When you contact me for the first time,  we will book an initial session straight away. The first meeting allows both is us to get a sense of each other and the issues which you will have brought to counselling. we will then agree on the dates and time for the following sessions should you chose to go ahead.
