About me


I am a compassionate, thoughtful and experienced counsellor who understands that there are times in life where we can struggle to feel ok.

Are there events or aspects of your life that you don' feel good about? That leave you feeling stressed, angry, frustrated and emotionally drained? Do you not feel completely in control of events or emotions and don't know which way to turn?

If this sounds familiar then counselling may help you to explore your situation, reach some understanding and to make positive changes in your life. Being able to talk through concerns with professional guidance and support makes a real difference.

Counselling will help you to feel clearer about your own strengths and your own choices. It will help you understand your reactions in particular situations and think about what you might do differently to feel better.

If this sounds helpful, call or email so we can talk further and you can find out more.

Training, qualifications & experience

I work integratively with a relational focus and my work is systemically informed. This means that as part of our work we will look at the quality of the relationships in your life and how they might be impacting on your overall well-being. This might mean your relationship with yourself, with your intimate partner or with your family: in the past, the present or the future.

Having worked for Relate for a number of years, I am experienced at working with relationship difficulties such as separation and divorce, an affair, control or abuse, step family issues, co-parenting, life stage transitions, ill health and/or bereavement.

I work with individuals on personal issues, either past or present, such as anxiety, self esteem, the ending of a relationship and patterns of behaviour.

As well as working in private practice, I work with young people in a local secondary school and with a project supporting offenders and ex offenders. I work for Relate as a clinical supervisor and teach counselling at Exeter College.

I offer Supervision for both trainees and experienced practitioners and am currently studying for my Masters in systemic psychotherapy and family therapy at Exeter University.

I'm a qualified Relate counsellor supervisor and trainer, with a background in counselling service management and service development.  I gained my initial counselling qualification with Relate (University Advanced Diploma in Couple Counselling).

I developed my skills with an Intermediate Diploma in Family Therapy and Systemic Practice with Plymouth University and Advanced Certificate in Systemic Practice with families and couples (Institute of Family Therapy).  I also have a post qualifying diploma in working with children and young people (Iron Mill College, Exeter).

I have a Diploma in Supervision from The Iron Mill College and offer both individual and group supervision. I also offer supervision for professionals working in healthcare settings in non-therapeutic roles.

I have experience of working both in the Voluntary and Statutory Sector, alongside work with Criminal Justice settings in HMP Exeter and HMP Channings Wood.

I am a qualified Relate Trainer and have experience of delivering workshops in a range of settings.

Further information

NEW: Date for your diary: 27 March 2018

Myself and a colleague are running a Half Day Workshop to support parents with their child/young person's worries.  Lunch included.

We all have worries but sometimes, for all of us, worries can begin to dominate aspects of everyday life.  Our workshop "When Worry Works" aims to help parents feel more equipped to help their young person manage their feelings. 

If your child or young person worries about school, social events or other aspects of life and you find yourself struggling to help them manage their worry, if you feel stuck or your child's worry is pulling you away from other things that need your attention, then our workshop 'When Worry Works' might be just the thing to help you make a difference.
