Welcome. I am an experienced therapist working in private practice at the Waterloo Wellbeing Centre. I am an Accredited and Registered member of the BACP.
We all have the potential to reach a point in our lives where things can feel over-whelming, or our past ways of coping don't work in the situation in which we find ourselves.
The counselling I offer provides a safe space where you can reflect on your situation, without being judged or criticised. My Approach is warm, accepting and compassionate.
"nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished" - Lao Tzu
It can be really helpful to voice our fears and concerns, with a person external to our immediate circumstances. This can bring about fresh perspectives, new insights and possibilities.
"We can never obtain peace with the outer world until we make peace with ourselves" - Dalia Lama
People find that therapy can be a space where they can feel supported to be more fully themselves. My intention is to offer a straightforward and transparent way of being, supporting people in finding their own way.
My core training is as an Integrative Counsellor and my framework is essentially humanistic and client centred. I integrate the Buddhist values of openheartedness, compassion and acceptance into my work.
I have always had a curiousity about what moulds me, shapes me, and influences me, and am committed to understanding myself more fully, seeking to be my real self, as best I can. The work I am able to do, has a good fit for me.
"Let the beauty of what you love, be what you do" - Rumi
I have enjoyed rich and varied experiences working in the National 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
Since 2009 I have established a successful private practice in Plymouth. I enjoy the opportunities that this presents and welcome the diversity of experience that people arrive with.
i have a particular interest in how different inequalities in relation to gender, sexuality, culture, class, etc impact on our Wellbeing and health. I have been involved in various projects and ventures in connection with survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
