About me

I am an experienced Humanistic Integrative Counsellor and Supervisor, accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have worked in various settings including Mental Health Residential Care, NHS secondary primary care (CMHT), voluntary agencies and in private practice for over 12 years.

My working model is Integrative, using techniques adapted from counselling approaches such as, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Rogerian and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.  By using this approach I use the 'most effective' parts of a number of theories so the widest range of problems can be tackled, empowering my clients to make better choices for the future.

I work in Private Practices in Totnes and Central Exeter, Devon. I am a warm, experienced, and down to earth professional humanistic Counsellor and  Supervisor offering you support through life's transitions and personal growth in a safe, confidential listening space, where we can explore your thoughts and feelings in a supportive, non judgemental way.

​I work with individuals, couples and children, offering both short and long term counselling. Whether it is a current problem or simply a need to gain a greater insight or awareness, counselling can be an enlightening experience, taking a positive step towards a fuller, more meaningful life.

As a Counsellor my work covers a wide range of issues including but not limited to:

Eating Disorders
Self Harm
Relationships & Couples
Gender Incongruence
Bereavement & Loss

I also work on a freelance basis for UK based EAP services for short term face to face and telephone counselling.
