I have counselled people from all walks of life; experiencing a range of dilemmas. I like to encourage people to feel empowered to take control of their lives; believe in themselves and their skills, regain hope and move forward.
I am confident about our ability to transform our lives; to overcome the challenges life can present.
I use an integrative approach and believe in the value of the relationship we develop together. I have worked with a range of concerns and issues including: depression, self harm, anxiety, bereavement, anger management, trauma and particular issues that arise for individuals as well as groups and communities. I am inspired by people’s honesty and courage.
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and keep at all times to their Code of Ethics.
I practice in Devon and am based in Plymouth.
As a mediator I encourage individuals to voice their feelings confidentially and later meet to resolve their dilemmas.
