About me

About me

I have been working as a counsellor and supervisor for several years in North Devon. My offer to you is integrity, compassion, humanity and hope, and the feedback I receive from my clients is that I am a ‘safe pair of hands’ and have the experience, expertise and insight to see through the layers to the person underneath. I am emotionally very robust, and no matter what you tell me, I will listen to what you are saying with respect and will continue to have an unwavering belief in you as a worthwhile human being. You will not be shamed, whether you are seeking a more harmonious life, greater self-knowledge, or a place to express yourself.

If you have experienced trauma, or are living or working with those who have, this is one of my areas of specialism, where I have undertaken in depth additional training. I also welcome students as both clients and supervisees, and can offer you perspectives that will increase your confidence and improve your practice.

If you would like more information about me or the servoces I offer, please look at my website

During these unprecedented times facing the Covid-19 virus, I am offering face to face counselling and supervision online. I am currently offering concessions to key workers and those experiencing economic hardship, in addition to a student discount

If you would like to hear more please contact by email or text. Your safety and confidentiality is important to me, so please say in your message if there are any restrictions on how and when I should call you to discuss things further or arrange a meeting.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
