Counselling Bridgwater

Counselling is a personal experience and is different for everyone. I offer a safe and confidential service, enabling you to start to explore difficulties without criticism and judgment. If you are feeling depressed, vulnerable, stressed or confused, counselling may be the right help for you.

As a professional Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I am able to offer you therapeutic counselling within the safe boundaries of my practice. I will support you to develop an understanding to develop an understanding of yourself, giving you space and time to find your own solutions.  As well as talking therapy I use therapeutic creativity. Mediums such as paints, sand-tray and clay may help you put words to difficult feelings and emotions in a non-threatening way.


Changes large or small can make you feel unstable and/or up rooted.  I can support you to find your feet once again, either on new ground or that which is familiar.  You do not have to face these changes alone.


I can understand how scary it can be to make that first move to get the help you need.  I would like to reassure you that trust and respect are integral to the way I work as a counsellor.  Together we will go at your pace and with what you need.

If you would like to know more or book an appoinment, please send me a message.
