What I offer

I offer a confidential counselling service to adults from comfortable rooms in Taunton and Winsford. I work in a calm non-judgemental manner, and provide a private space in which to feel safe and comfortable to explore whatever issues are causing difficulties.

The therapeutic goals will be identified together, and a way of working towards achieving those objectives will be our aim. The work together will build a relationship of trust that will be a foundation for positive therapeutic outcomes.

I support clients to address a wide variety of issues and challenges, this may include:

  • anxiety and stress
  • bereavement and loss
  • addiction
  • relationship difficulties
  • abuse
  • low self-esteem
  • eating disorders  
  • identity issues

I am particularly aware and have an insight into the particular  issues and challenges experienced by those who work in farming or who live a rural lifestyle. The emotional difficulties some face with pregnancy, delivery and the early years are also areas where I am able to offer some specialist knowledge. I have additional training and interest in the effect of a boarding school education on an individual, or on their partner.

It is possible to offer afternoon or evening appointments.

To underpin my work, I adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework and the National Counselling Society Code of Practice. I am a member of both professional bodies.

I hold Professional Liability Insurance.

I access regular supervision from a qualified supervisor, as a mandatory ethical requirement and to provide personal self-care.
