About me

Welcome

I am an experienced therapist, Accredited and Registered with the BACP, offering individual and couples therapy. Over the last ten years, I have established a successful private practice in Plymouth, working with people seeking help with a broad range of issues. I offer short term and long term work.

I recognise that it takes courage to seek therapy and I offer a warm welcome to help people feel comfortable and at ease.

The therapeutic relationship offers a unique opportunity to look at issues in a particular environment, which is accepting and nonjudgemental, a space to slow down and reflect, so that new awarenesses and insights can emerge. I offer a mindful presence, gently noticing what is being experienced in the room.

My core training is in Integrative Counselling, employing a humanistic and person-centred approach.

"The most precious thing we can offer others is our presence." - Thich Naht Hanh

Training, qualifications & experience

My background

I was employed in the NHS for twenty five years, initially as a Mental Health Nurse and latterly as a therapist.

I have worked in a variety of contexts, including mental health services, day therapy centres, GP practices, a youth agency, and a psychotherapy department. Throughout this time I have engaged with people individually and in groups, paying attention to their stories and experiences, rather than diagnosis.
