About me

I am an integrative therapist who builds what I do around the needs of each individual client and offers a confidential space for you to explore the challenges of your life. I can work with a wide variety of issues, including depression, abuse, self esteem, relationship difficulties and many more. My specialism is in working with issues with food and this can be at any level, from diagnosed eating disorders through to chronic dieting and body image concerns. If it’s a problem for you, it’s something worthy of attention. I can work face to face at my location in Honiton, or online sessions are also available, as is a mix of the two. I offer a free 30 minute initial session, either face to face or online, to discuss what you hope to gain from therapy and whether working with me might be right for you.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
