Hello! I'm an accredited therapist based in Bath, specialising in CBT. I offer a safe, friendly, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to explore whatever is troubling you and help you work towards resolving your emotional difficulties. My aim is to support you with an individual treatment plan to help you improve your mental health. My special interest is in working with clients with anxiety problems, OCD, low self esteem and phobias. I can also work with you if you just want to manage general life stress at home or at work.

I specialise in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), and work as an integrative cognitive behavioural therapist in Bath, drawing on a variety of CBT methods such as Cognitive Therapy and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT), as well as more recent CBT developments such as Compassion Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (often referred to as ACT). 

Feel free to get in touch to discuss how CBT can help you by messaging me on 07898 992010 or emailing me at

CBT is an evidence-based treatment recommended for the treatment of anxiety based problems and depression. It's also a practical treatment for targeting work and life stress, exam anxiety, IBS, public speaking anxiety and managing painful conditions (such as back pain).
