About me

Counselling and Psychotherapy in Bath and Frome

My name is Mark and I am a qualified and accredited counsellor with a private practice based out of Bath and Frome.  I work within the person-centred approach, but also integrate other techniques into my work, for example Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and art therapy techniques. This gives me a range of tools to work with you to help you create lasting change. 

I am passionate about helping people and keep my clients at the centre of what I do.  I work alongside clients to explore their issues in a safe, non-judgemental environment. I work to build a trusting relationship where clients are able to discuss issues or feelings that they may be unable to share with family or friends. Together we will seek a way for you to feel better about yourself by helping you to gain a better understanding of your difficulties and giving you the tools to overcome the unique challenges in your life. 

My clinical experience includes, but is not limited to the following issues:

  • loneliness

  • bereavement

  • difficulties at work

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • stress

  • drug and alcohol use and abuse

  • feelings of sadness

  • lack of confidence

  • low self-esteem

  • relationship issues

  • family issues

 

Qualifications and Experience.

 

I am an accredited member with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I qualified as a counsellor in 2016 with a CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.  Before this qualification, I obtained an AQA Certificate in Counselling as well as an AQA Certificate in Counselling Skills. During my two years of study for my Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, I supported two charities by providing counselling for clients, specifically Cotswold Counselling and Turning Point.  

 

 I was awarded accreditation by the BACP in 2019 and became an accredited member (MBACP (Accred)). This means my practice has achieved the highest standards expected by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Since 2016, I have volunteered with Cruse Bereavement Care in the Bath area, and have gained substantial experience working with bereavement issues, including complex bereavement. I am now an affiliate counsellor for Lifeworks, providing employee assistance program counselling to employees in the Bath area.  I am also an affiliate counsellor for Anxiety UK and provide anxiety specific therapy for referred clients.
