Psychotherapy and counselling in central Bath and Frome.
Hello and welcome. If you are looking for low-cost, affordable psychotherapy in central Bath or Frome, I would like to offer you some information about myself, the process of psychotherapy, and how we may be able to work together.
I value individuality, honesty, integrity, finding your own way, connection, and relationship. I believe that by choosing to talk to a psychotherapist, you have taken the first step toward empowering yourself to find answers, and towards creating movement and change in your life. I can guide and support you through this process, although I do recognise that it can be a difficult at times.
I understand that reaching out to a psychotherapist can feel daunting, so I welcome an introductory session during which we can both talk about how we may like to work together. We can talk about your reasons for seeking therapy at this point and what you feel you would like to gain from the process. We can also chat through what sort of commitment is required, how it works and any other questions you my have about myself, my training or the process of psychotherapy. Have a look at my Why Psychotherapy? page to find out more about the process and what kind of issues respond well to psychotherapy and counselling.
Often clients ask about the differences between psychotherapy and counselling. There are many similarities in approach, but generally I would say that counselling may focus on a particular issue or difficulty and therefore might be short-term and potentially more goal-oriented. Psychotherapy, on the other hand tends to be longer-term work, exploring deep-rooted issues and patterns of relating that may result in feelings such as low self-esteem, shame, overwhelm or withdrawl from the world.
As a trainee, my low-cost fee is currently offered at £35/50 mins. This may increase as I move through my training, but I would always discuss any changes with you well in advance and would always endeavour to maintain an affordable rate for you. Please feel free to contact me via email or telephone for an initial chat or appointment.
