I am an Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor (MBACP Senior Accredited) with additional qualifications in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, TA and Life Coaching. My Practice, established 2003, is based two miles West of Ivybridge, close to the A38, and my cosy 17th Century cottage offers a warm, homely environment in which to talk in confidence about whatever is troubling you.
Whether your are having relationship problems, suffering from anxiety, low mood, bereavement, struggling with your weight, getting stressed about work or simply feeling stuck, I would like to help you see things from a different perspective so you can move on with your life.
As well as working one-to-one, I also have years of experience in couple counselling and relationship coaching. Whether your relationship is in serious difficulty or just needs freshening-up, my highly individual approach to couples may be just what you're looking for.
I have been a fully qualified supervisor since 2006 (Iron Mill Institute, Diploma in Supervision) and, whatever your level of experience, I offer a safe and non-judgemental environment in which to explore issues arising from your Practice and how your personal life interacts with your professional life.
Evening or daytime appointments are available throughout the week, my latest appointment being 7.00pm, so I am able to accommodate most people's lifestyles and work commitments. I am also happy to offer counselling online if this is more convenient for you.

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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
