I am an experienced counsellor and have established a successful Private Practice in Plymouth, working at The Waterloo Wellbeing Centre in Stoke and The Crownhill Fort, both of which are beautiful spaces, with mindfully considered therapy rooms.
My approach is straightforward and transparent, aiming to support people in finding their own way. Imy intention is to welcome people whatever their reason for coming to counselling/therapy, and provide a good space for them to start exploring issues.
“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.” – Rumi
I have enjoyed rich and varied experiences working in the Health Service for twenty five years. I have a depth of understanding and appreciation of a broad range of difficulties and challenges that people can face. I have worked in mental health services, GP Practices, Young Peoples Services, and within a Psychotherapy Team.
I have been engaged in many opportunities to hear women’s stories and how inequality impacts on their lives. I have facilitated Women’s Groups, Therapy Groups for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, as well as working on an individual basis to promote healing and empowerment. I have a particular interest in how people are impacted by inequalities in relation to gender, sexuality, class, culture, etc.
“Each time a woman stands up…she stands up for all women” – Maya Angelou
Over the years I have developed a passion for training. As an Associate Lecturer with Plymouth University I contributed to the Nurse Training Programme. I was part of a National Team of Trainers concerned with the provision of training to all health care professionals in relation to supporting survivors of abuse. I was also a trainer with the Inequality Agenda.
I now enjoy working with Lotus Training in Plymouth, providing mindfulness based counseling courses.
