About me

Relationship issues, lonely, anxious and overwhelmed, struggling in general or because of specific events? Sometimes friends and family are unable to support you in the way you need. I have practises in Exeter,Taunton and Sidmouth where I offer professional, confidential, non-judgemental counselling.

I use an integrated approach which means I draw on a range of skills and theories to adapt counselling to your individual needs. I am passionate about the work I do because I know it helps you on the path back to being yourself.

There is nothing too big or too small to bring to counselling but I understand looking for a counsellor can be a daunting thought .For some, life may have been difficult for a great while and an impartial, professional listener can be a welcome step to change. It takes courage to make that first step so it is important that you find someone who you can trust. To this end I offer an initial, no obligation meeting for us to explore your hopes or fears about counselling. Together we can discuss how I could work with you to get what you need.

You may feel stuck, have family issues, be battling depression, anxiety or just know that life could be better. Counselling helps make sense of the difficulties you are having. I am trained to work in varied techniques and whilst I won’t offer you advice I will work alongside you to make decisions and find an understanding of situations and yourself.

My work in schools and with children and young people has informed my practise where relationships, both professionally and in the home, can become complex. Changes in life and relationships, illness, abuse, eating disorder, anger and stress are just some of the issues I have experience in. I can offer long, medium or short-term work to help you with your issues.

As a humanistic practitioner I never underestimate the capacity for growth; whether it is support in gaining new perspectives, changing behaviours or thoughts, or building self esteem and positive self image; our counselling relationship can help you to explore in a professional, safe and confidential setting .

My job is to facilitate your exploration and understanding to enable you to make the change you want to achieve.
