About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor with experience of working with clients who have experienced trauma, abuse, bereavement, relationship issues, anxiety, stress and depression.

I work in a variety of ways to suit the needs of my clients, offering a range of therapeutic support from short term focussed therapy to long term psychotherapy.

We can all find our personal journeys difficult at times and, inevitably, we resist tackling the deeper, more uncomfortable elements of the process. My role is to be there beside my clients at these times to support them with empathy and without judgement. This is the foundation of the therapeutic relationship between me and my clients.

Further information

I have recently started working outdoors, mostly using the open spaces of Dartmoor and the many sheltered river walks in the area*. There is good evidence that spending just 20 minutes outside in green spaces is hugely therapeutic and has stress relieving benefits.

If you are interested in trying my “walk & talk” service, we can discuss and arrange that at an initial indoor session.
