MA MBACP (Accred.), Counselling, Psychotherapy & Supervision

About me

Counselling, psychotherapy and supervision for adults:- Face to face sessions or online throughout the UK.

I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist who works in a variety of ways having some sixteen years experience in Counselling, psychotherapy, supervision and mentoring in Devon. I offer a one-to-one therapy that will be different for each individual, depending upon their personal need. The Humanistic and integrative approach (incorporating analytical psychology/Jungian) to the development of the individual as a unique and whole being will be supported throughout the course of therapy. My work is tailored to my clients' needs and may incorporate working from a psychodynamic or psycho-analytic perspective.  I work with individuals and counselling/psychotherapy students and also able to provide supervision to practising counsellors. Please note that I do not work with children, families or couples.

Whether you are seeking assistance in working through an immediate crisis on a short term basis, or ready to embark on a longer journey towards finding your true self, I am able to work in any way which suits you. My work is client-led. In other words, it is entirely up to you as to how far you wish to 'travel' at any one time. A non-judgemental, safe, containing and facilitating environment is offered within my own therapy centre.

I have undertaken several years training obtaining a Certificate in Counselling Skills, 2 years Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling, and a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy and Healing with the Society for Psychology and Healing Practice (validated by Middlesex University), Diploma in Counselling Supervision, Certificate in Hypnotherapy, Certificate in Attachment Theory, Certificate in Couples Counselling, Woolger Training: Deep Memory Process. After several years working within a GP practice for the NHS, I currently work in private practice offering counselling, psychotherapy, dream therapy, tutoring, supervision, mentoring, etc.  In other words, I work with you according to individual need in a way that works for you as a totally unique individual.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
