I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor.
I work in a person-centred way which means I believe that each person is the real expert on her or himself, but sometimes we can get overwhelmed and confused about how we feel or what is best for ourselves, this is when counselling can be of great help. I will listen to you without judgement to understand who you are, how you see things and what your experience is. I offer a warm, supportive and honest relationship in which we will talk about what you are struggling with. Together we will explore how you feel, what is important to you and find the best way for you to move forward.
I have worked in a number of different counselling agencies and have experience in issues such as:
I offer short term or long term counselling to suit your needs. We can agree on a set number of sessions or work open-ended depending on what you feel most comfortable with.
In the first session we get to know each other and discuss practical things such as confidentiality and cancellations. After the first session you may want some time to think about whether to proceed, this is absolutely fine.
Sessions are 50 minutes and usually take place at the same time on the same day each week. A session is £45.
I am a member of BACP and adhere to their guidelines regarding ethics and confidentiality. I have regular supervision to ensure the high standard of my work.
I am orginally from Denmark, but now live in Bath with my children and a cat. Before coming to the UK I lived many years in Germany and I have also previously lived in the USA and Chile.
I am very interested in how cultural and social structures and pressures are connected to our mental health.
As part of my own mental and physical well being I run regularly enjoying being outdoors.
Before training to be a counsellor I have worked in different jobs with children, persons with disabilities and vulnerable adults and their families. I have an MA in Modern European History and an MA in Human Rights in Theory and Practice and DipHIC (BCPC).
