About me

I am an experienced psychologist qualified as a counsellor. Since lockdown started last year 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 identitiy issues.

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