About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor with experience of working with clients who have experienced a range of issues including: trauma, abuse, bereavement, relationship issues, anxiety, stress and depression.  I am working in person from rooms based in Tavistock, Devon as well as delivering online and telephone sessions.

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 you at these times ready to respond with empathy and without judgement. This is the foundation of the therapeutic relationship I offer to clients.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Advanced Specialist Diploma in Clinical Supervision (Level 6)
  • Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling  (Level 4)
  • Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • Trauma Informed Approaches
  • PODS

I have also worked in an agency setting since 2017 offering time limited counselling to Carers, and others referred through charitable organisations; supporting individuals and families affected by domestic abuse including parent and child therapy and group therapy; providing short term counselling and longer term psychotherapy to self referred clients.
