About me

I am a National Counselling Society Accredited Counsellor in private practice.I adhere to regular supervision and continual professional development.

I work non-judgmentally with warmth, empathy and understanding .I am accepting of all experiences. I work with young people, adults, older adults, couples and families who are suffering emotional turmoil in their lives.

People come to see me when they are feeling unhappy. Maybe they are feeling overwhelmed and are finding it hard to cope or perhaps they don't really know what is troubling them, they just know that something, is not quite right. Everyone is different, I work alongside each persons specific need.

I work with many different areas of counselling including: Abuse, Addictions, Anger, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Eating Disorders, Family Issues, Low Self Esteem, Panic Disorder, Phobias, Personal and Work Related Stress, Relationship Issues, Self-Harm and much more.

I specialise in Emotional Therapeutic Counselling, a client led talking therapy which focuses on emotions rather than the mind only. I use a range of gentle techniques to help you uncover, explore and express painful emotions to bring about positive change. This effective therapeutic approach supports you to face and understand difficulties in your life, make appropriate changes and move forward feeling stronger, happier and more content.

I see clients in various locations throughout Devon and Somerset including Taunton, Chard, Ilminster, Axminster and Honiton. I offer flexible daytime, evening and weekend appointments. The confidential counselling sessions take place in a safe environment and go at your own pace. There are no rules regarding number or frequency of sessions.

I offer a free 40 minute, no obligation first consultation which gives you time to talk about your needs and to find out more about Emotional Therapeutic Counselling. It also gives you the opportunity to feel if you are comfortable to work with me.

I feel that counselling should be accessible to all. If you are on a low income concessions can be arranged.

If you have any questions or require any additional information, you are welcome to phone me for an informal chat. If I am unavailable when you call, please leave your message and I’ll get back to you.
