About me

Time with a therapist can be a great opportunity for you to re-evaluate your life, your priorities and your beliefs; so you can feel freer and happier.

I am flexible and non-judgemental in my approach and believe I can put you at ease. I have a professional interest in supporting people through change to achieve higher levels of well-being.

I base my approach to counselling not just on my training, but more broadly on my personal and professional experience of life. I have worked in the care profession for over 30 years.

I understand that for my clients to work openly and honestly with me, it may involve you disclosing personal experiences that can be painful, uncomfortable or distressing but I am approachable and develop comfortable and trusting relationships with people.

I work from home in north Devon, just north of Barnstaple. I have private space in a peaceful and calm environment.

I offer an introductory assessment session free of charge and have early morning & evening appointments if required.

Further information

Whether you are looking for a therapist for the first time, or whether you are looking to find someone new, I hope I will be able to answer some of the questions you may have.

I am very aware that many people are unsure what sort of therapist they want, or even how to choose between the options and choices available to them.

The following are common concerns people may have:

1.     Will my therapist be knowledgeable and experienced to work with me?

2.     Will I feel able to trust / like my therapist?

3.     What are the differences between all the different types of therapy?

4.     What style / school of therapy does my therapist use?

5.     What will happen in my first session?

6.     How will I know that therapy is working?

7.     Will there be flexibility about appointment times?

8.     How much will it cost?

I hope the information on my website will give you an idea of what I can offer and if I am the best person to help you.

Clients will always receive my full commitment and respect.

All my work is completely confidential and you can have absolute trust that anything we discuss will be kept private.

Please contact me for a free first meeting to discuss how I can help you.
