About me

I am an experienced psychologist qualified as a counsellor. Since lockdown  I have been providing my service online via zoom. I have found that most people really appreciate being able to have their session from the comfort of their own home with no need  pay for travel or parking. You just need quiet space with internet access and a tablet, smartphone or laptop with camera and sound, or we could work by phone. I do offer limited one to one sessions in Exeter for those who really cannot use zoom or dont have a private space at home to do so.

I work with young people and children, adults and couples. I deal with trauma, anxiety, stress, addiction, self harm, suicidal ideation and abuse. I have a lot of experience with working with people with acquired brain injuries and their families, and with people with gender identity issues.

I have worked in a school and a prison as well as in general practice.

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.
