About me

I am a qualified, registered, integrative counsellor offering friendly, confidential, face to face counselling and personal therapy. I will not judge or criticise you but seek to understand your situation. I will respect your needs and treat you with respect as you explore the issues you are facing at your pace. Our sessions are normally weekly to begin with, and your first introductory session is free of charge so that you can decide if my approach is right for you. For many people taking the first step requires courage; I aim to make this as easy as I can. I also have experience of training professional counsellors.

I have a dedicated, air conditioned room at my home (separated from my house) or by special arrangement at The Meadows Practice in Ilminster.

I offer all clients an initial session FREE OF CHARGE so that, together, we can decide if counselling may be helpful for you and if I am the person you feel is right for you to work with.
I look forward to talking to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

Certificate and Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling. My private practice is based at my home in The Blackdown Hills, close to the Devon/Somerset border.

Having worked in NHS, corporate, charity and private practice settings, I believe I have gained invaluable experience; this allows me to identify with the diverse needs of my clients and support them in the most appropriate way.

In September 2015 I was appointed as lead tutor for The Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling at Broadreach Training in Plymouth; I worked with a group of trainee counsellors one day per week.
