As a full time UKCP accredited psychotherapist, it is my intention to respect your individuality, support you in finding your own way of working and to meet your uniqueness without judgement.
As your therapist it is my role to be a reflector and facilitator of awareness, a companion and guide. I utilise my training and years of experience of mindfulness as well as other modalities to find the right approach for you.
I attend regular 1-1 supervision, monthly peer supervision and CPD and training. I am also involved in personal and group work for my own self-awareness and inner work.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Masters degree in Core Process Psychotherapy (Karuna Institute) and am an accredited Psychotherapist with the UKCP. I also have a Diploma in Transpersonal Couples Counselling and Psychotherapy, from the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE), London. Since 2016, I have also been a tutor on the MA in Mindfulness Based Core Process Psychotherapy at the Karuna Institute and am currently teaching year 3. I am therefore not able to see as clients, anyone who is a student or who plans to be a student on this course.
I have a BSc. in psychology and Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and am a member of the British Psychological Society.
I have been working in private psychotherapy practice since 2008 and have previously been employed to support individuals to make change within the NHS, Charitable sector organisations and Social Services. Prior to this I have taught in school and at Kent University on the Social Sciences BSc (health psychology for social workers).
Whilst the majority of my work is with private clients, I have been commissioned as a psychotherapist through the courts and social services to work with individuals and couples. One afternoon each week I also work as a consulting psychotherapist to Serendipity residential family assessment centre where I have offered therapeutic support to parents both as individuals and couples since 2008.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Personal and spiritual growth
Exeter and Topsham: £50 for one hour
Throughout our lives we may experience periods of happiness and also of difficulty. The difficulties may be connected to an event, such as a bereavement, break up of a relationship or trauma. The difficulty may also be a more pervasive feeling of anxiety, depression, frustration, fear, confusion, lack of meaning or stress.
By meeting you where you are in the moment and working at your pace we can bring awareness to the ways in which you relate to your experience, and explore together the process of change and transformation.
It is your choice how long to stay with therapy, whether this is for the short-term to address a specific issue, or to explore deeper and more long-held patterns.
