Counselling in Bath
Counselling Bath City Centre
I am an experienced, qualified counsellor, working from central Bath. I am accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council and am also on the register of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
There are many reasons to consider counselling: your life may not be going in the direction you had hoped or expected, you may be experiencing sadness or anger or perhaps something you don’t have words for. Sometimes it’s problems with relationships which brings people to counselling. You may be feeling anxiety, stress, depression, short of confidence or have issues with self-esteem. Bereavement or other kinds of loss often leads people to consider counselling too. Or you may simply feel that something is missing in your life. You might not come with a specific problem as such, but want to use counselling to explore who you are and where you are in your life. Whatever brings you to counselling, your experience of it will be unique to you.
What I offer in counselling is a regular time each week to sit with what is going on for you and as best we can, to look directly at it together, attending to how things are in the present moment. You can bring what you are thinking and how you are feeling, both emotionally and physically. There is the opportunity to spend time looking at any patterns or ideas which are present. We may also think carefully about how you relate to yourself and others. It’s important also to think about what may be going on unconsciously. This might relate to events or situations from the past which are still exerting an influence in the present.
By thinking and talking together in this way, you may find that you develop a greater sense of freedom and autonomy. Many people say that through this kind of work, their lives start to seem more three dimensional.
It is important that you feel able to talk about whatever is on your mind, so counselling with me is confidential. If you decide to come to counselling with me, we would meet weekly for 50 minutes.
I practise as a counsellor from central Bath which is easily reachable from Bristol, Chippenham, Swindon, north Somerset and Gloucesterhire.
