How can I help?

I help people work their way through a variety of difficult experiences, which can range from feeling:

  • overwhelmed by stress at work, home or university
    • exhausted by a constant battle with negative thoughts and emotions
    • bereaved by the loss of, or separation from, a loved one
    • anxious or angry after illness, trauma or abuse
    • unsettled by a deep need or fear of change


Core Process Psychotherapy

Core Process Psychotherapy helps clients connect with their body and mind and work towards easing the impact that stress, depression and anxiety can have on them. This combines Western psychotherapy and neurobiology with Eastern mindfulness practice. By bringing attention to emotions and sensations in the body and observing our thoughts, we can learn more about our deeply held beliefs, drives and defensive habits, and how they shape our daily experience and relationships with others and ourselves.

The benefits

The benefits of giving yourself regular time to explore your personal issues with support can be profound. It can lead to greater self-awareness, acceptance and compassion; a calmer/more relaxed and balanced approach to life; and ultimately the freedom to fulfil your potential. Over time, in the safety of the therapeutic relationship, the burden of childhood neglect or abuse, or deeply held trauma, may lighten with the release of draining tension and emotions.

About me

After working in the education sector and raising my family, I began training as a Core Process Psychotherapist at the highly regarded Karuna Institute in Devon. This embodied training is psycho-spiritual in nature and promotes a depth of connection in relationship. I am passionate about the wisdom of this holistic approach to therapy as it believes in the inherent ‘core’ health of the individual and explores how we ‘process’ our unique experience.

I have a private practice in central Bath, Chippenham and online, am a Volunteer Counsellor at Dorothy House Hospice Care and support staff at a local school.
