About me

The decision to come to counselling and seek help is hugely personal. Well done for coming this far. I will offer you a safe, non-judgmental and held space where you can work through whatever it is you feel is troubling you.
I can work with you, either long or short-term, on the issues you are facing. I offer one-to-one counselling sessions in rooms across South Devon, including Totnes and Newton Abbot.

I am a British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy member and am on the BACP's register of approved practitioners. I also hold an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Dartmoor Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy, an Advanced Practitioner in Substance Misuse qualification from Broadreach House, Plymouth as well as a Certificate in Counselling from the Iron Mill Centre, Exeter.

I am also one of the first recovery coaches in the UK to complete the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery training and received funding from Exeter Drugs Project to complete this, while I worked in a custodial setting in an abstinence based therapeutic community for recovery from drug addiction. I was also recognised by Phoenix Futures with a special award for the therapeutic work I did to promote and facilitate recovery within prisons.
The explosion of mobile technology and social media means there is also a bespoke service of Skype and telephone therapy available for people wherever they are in the world. This is one of the most exciting therapeutic development of recent times

I offer the following:

Person-centred counselling
Gestalt
CBT
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Sand Tray Therapy
Motivational interviewing
Solution-focused brief interventions
Addiction therapy
Group therapy/facilitation
Recovery Coaching
Skype and phone counselling, coaching.
