About me

I have my own private practice in the centre of Exeter and offer counselling for individuals and couples. AS a BACP senior counsellor and supervisor I have over 30 years experience which enables me to draw on a variety of counselling models and skills.

Working with and facilitating groups is an area of particular interest to me, these include stress management, personal relationships and inner child workshops. Confidentiality and privacy are important and always respected in the safe supportive relationship which counselling provides. Brief intervention therapy and longer term therapeutic counselling are both available to meet individual needs and a 20 minute free consultation is offered to discuss this.

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.

Further information

As a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist I offer suggestion therapy or analysis depending on the clients need. Suggestion therapy is used for giving up smoking, weight loss, confidence building, driving tests etc. and analysis with deeper rooted issues such as phobias, fears, unresolved difficulties from the past.

I also work for a number of Employer Assisted Programmes who refer clients to me for short term counselling requiring Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
