About me

Sometimes life is hard. I recognise that we are all unique and your reasons for seeking therapy will be as individual as you. As an Integrative Counsellor I can help you to; implement changes, process trauma safely, increase self worth, manage symptoms of anxiety and/or depression, look at how past experiences and/or relationships may be impacting you in the present and much more, in ways that resonate with you. I believe that we are all unique and so should be our approach to therapy.

I am a trauma informed therapist and my training includes; CBT, Humanistic and Psychodynamic approaches to therapy. Whilst these theories and techniques are important and enhance me professionally, it is the therapeutic relationship which you and I build that will become central to the therapy, which is why it is so important to find a therapist you feel you can build a safe, trusting relationship with.

If you feel this might be me, please send me an email or give me a call. I offer a free 20-minute, no obligation phone call to try and help you decide whether you feel  I am the right therapist for you.

Reaching out can feel hard for a variety of reasons. You have already taken a huge step in looking me up. If you do send an email or give me a call, I can assure you that you will be met with friendliness, warmth and by someone who genuinely wants to help.

Face to face sessions take place in Exeter.

Member organisations

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.

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).
