About me

Welcome. I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I work in the beautiful surroundings of Rural Mid Devon and have a private therapy room situated in Morchard Bishop, Crediton.

Counselling offers you the space and opportunity to explore a difficult experience and your thoughts and feelings about this in a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment. The counselling sessions are confidential and the therapeutic work focuses on what you want to share and would like to achieve or gain from Counselling.

I offer a reduced rate, no obligation 1 hour initial consultation which gives you the opportunity to decide if you feel counselling would be beneficial and helpful for you.

I work towards enabling you to develop your potential, feel empowered and find strategies to lead a more fulfilling life, to feel more confident and positive about the future.

I have experience in the following areas:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Work Related Stress
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Eating Disorders
  • Pregnancy and Childbirth
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Childhood Related Issues
  • Trauma

  • Self Confidence
  • Sexuality & Identity
