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.

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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
