Quality Care You Can Count On
Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, grief, addiction, anxiety, or major life changes?
Or maybe you just feel like you need someone to talk to.
There comes a time when we need some help from a certified professional to help cope with many of life’s challenges. I’m a BACP registered therapist in Frome - working with me can help you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.
Since I began counselling in 2009, I have worked with many different issues, such as grief and loss, separations, gambling addiction, smoking addiction and burnout, to name a few.
Life can be overwhelming and sometimes even exhausting, but I’m here to guide you through any obstacles you may face. My goal is to help you understand yourself more deeply and better cope with change.
I completed 3 years of training in Australia at the University of Notre Dame which resulted in a BA in Counselling. I then went on to work for Centre Care a non-profit counselling agency in Perth, Western Australia. While at Centre Care I continued to study, completing courses such as training in gambling help, Mental Health First Aid, mindfulness and many others. During this time I specialised in working with people struggling with gambling addictions, facilitating group therapy and one-to-one general counselling.
I have worked with clients in a variety of settings including men and women in prison and young people in schools.
In addition to this I have trained staff at the Crown Casino in Perth and Lottery West on gambling awareness.
Since being a counsellor, I’ve focused on helping my clients move into clearer places where they can make choices and be more confident to do this alone. Confidence comes with authenticity and a knowing about yourself.
Let me help you learn and develop better ways to handle the issues that are standing in the way of you living a full and happier life. Give yourself the gift of the moment.
My time with Lee has helped me immensely in my journey to overcome a recent trauma. Lee went out of her way to create a comfortable environment for me and where I could speak openly. I would recommend her to anyone else who is searching for a counsellor with a big heart and wise words.

A human connection with the counsellor, the ability to actually take lessons and techniques away from the sessions and apply them to my life in the real world. I can see my counsellor Lee has provided a high level of compassionate, sensitive, empathetic and professional service. I couldn't have hoped for a better counsellor.

" I thought my husband was my best friend. When he left,unexpectedly,it wasn't just devastating for me,it was like he had thrown a bomb in to the whole family. I felt utterly broken and heartbroken to feel the emotional shock and damage to my children and myself. Lee is an absolute professional, she has years of experience which she has used to help and gently guide me back to a place of renewed confidence and hope.
I found the conversational style of our sessions worked especially well for me. With Lee's help and support, I , in turn, have found strength and insight to guide my youngest child, who I am proud to say is now thriving and happy. My relationship with all my children is stronger than it has ever been. I haven't just survived. I am proud and happy".

"I came to Lee as I unfortunately had a relapse of a problem I suffered from for years. I had seen a therapist previously which I thought had solved the problem but it turns out it just paused the problem for a while. I saw Lee had experience in dealing with people with addiction and wanted to see if her skills could help me.
Its safe to say I wasn't disappointed, Lee came across extremely friendly, kind,knowledgeable and was a great listener. She provided me with a lot of helpful tips on how to manage my problems and for that I can't thank her enough. I'm still keeping in regular contact with Lee and intend to do so for the foreseeable future.
I would highly suggest Lee to anyone!
