Welcome to Langport Counselling Practice

I realise that making the decision to come to counselling can be a difficult one, it may have been on your mind for sometime and eventually an event, a situation or living with anxiety, low mood or relationship issues can lead you to consider this option. We can live in a more comfortable way with ourselves, and so with the world around us.

After many years of involvement with counselling and through my work within mental health I greatly value the opportunity for change it can offer.

A little bit about how I can help…

My main training is in Integrative counselling, this form of counselling provides a framework where the uniqueness of the client and the relationship we have together is foremost this creates a place where I draw from my training and experience to fit the type of counselling needed to the requirements of the client and the work we are focusing on.

My background is psychodynamic and humanistic, so the feelings that you bring and the history you have experienced are relevant to the work. There are what we call defences where you may not know why you feel something so strongly or disproportionality, we will gently look at what is behind this. There are emotional echoes that move us at times and again we will tune into these echoes. Our guide may be the feelings and situations that you bring along.

My Experience

I have worked with people suffering with various forms of distress for over 18 years, I started in the probation service providing support services and along side this I pioneered the work of victim support in Somerset. I have worked for a mental health charity in Somerset, both within their recovery hostel and with clients in the community.

In recent times I’ve worked with a range of people from students at university to professionals, parents with children based at home, young adults, adults in their middle years, to the elderly. My experience also covers people with physical ill health, a wide variety of those suffering mental distress.

I completed my clinical practice at Somerset Counselling Centre where I worked with a wide range of people both in age and issues.
