Psychotherapist Bradford on Avon offering Psychotherapy, Counselling and Couples therapy in Bradford on Avon
HELLO AND WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE
Please browse these pages and feel welcome to contact me with any further queries or to make an appointment.
I have worked as a Psychotherapist for 21 years and prior to this worked in the helping professions throughout my career.This means that I have experience and skills to help a range of individuals, couples or small groups, dealing with different issues or problems. I can also assess whether I might be the best person to help, and if not, I can suggest other resources.
I offer Psychotherapy and Counselling to Individuals, couples and small groups in a safe and confidential environment.
I work throughout the week in Bradford on Avon.
When we first meet we would discuss more fully what kind of help would suit you best.
Long term or open ended psychotherapy would involve agreeing to work on deeper issues within the self which might have been presenting in your life for some time. We might not set an ending date and would be more open to the idea that this work needs time and that we work with aspects of the self as they arise..
Short term counselling or psychotherapy might mean agreeing to work for a set number of sessions. We would agree to meet for 6, 8 or 12 sessions or any number we decide together. This type of work usually means agreeing to focus on resolving a specific issue in your life.
Couples Counselling or Relationship Therapy can be longer or shorter term . I can offer couples or other small groups short or long term therapy depending upon what we decide together.
I believe and have observed that psychotherapy and counselling can be helpful and effective to people in very different and individual ways. There is no one way to do it.
I am interested in working with you regardless of your age, social, religious or ethnic background, your abilities or capacities, your sexual orientation or gender identity.

As a fully qualified psychotherapist I offer a talking therapy known generically as therapy, counselling or psychotherapy. I recognise that each person who seeks help will bring their own way of looking at themselves. I work with the individual alongside the issue or problem they are bringing. Developing a working relationship together is important and part of learning how to help each individual with particular issues. Talking Therapies are recognised as helping with issues such as:
Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, post traumatic Stress, grief, bereavement and loss, addictions, phobias, carer support, childhood abuse, trauma, deprivation. Self esteem issues, low self esteem, sense of inferiority, relationship difficulties, child related Issues, post natal depression, disability, self esteem issues, self Confidence, work related stress, retirement, life transitions, loss of meaning, chronic health conditions, mental illness, family members with mental illness, aspergers/autistic spectrum conditions ......
Of course this list does not cover all that psychotherapy or counselling can help with. You may identify with these issues or may recognise other less easily defined states such as unhappiness, feeling excluded, different, alone or fearful. Or you may be looking for a therapist to help you get to know yourself or accept yourself, to enhance your quality of life or as a requirement of a professional training which you have chosen.
If you are looking for couples counselling or other relationship or family therapy please see further details on my couples counselling page.
