About me

 I offer counselling to anyone over the age of 16  either  in person, in my  warm  and  comfortable counselling cabin in Totnes, or online.

What can you expect from a counselling session?

Everyone is different and so is every session,  but in general, it's all about   exploring your  issues or questions to look for ways of  coping with the distress caused by them and to find ways of moving forwards.  There are  many things that can come out of this process - you might be inspired to try different or additional ways  to communicate, with better outcomes for your relationships,  you might discover tools you can use to help with managing strong emotion, you'll be encouraged to build on  and appreciate the strengths you already have or  you may find that talking to someone outside your family and friendship group, with skills to listen and support, allows subtle shifts in perspective that bring  relief and new ideas.

My style is informal and based on a compassionate approach. It's important to be kind and accepting of ourselves, anyway, but particularly during the counselling process so that we don't lose connection with what we're trying to achieve. I aim  to provide a working relationship where trust builds, so that you feel at ease  and able to talk through your difficulties in a free and open way.

Please email  or call me if you would like to find out more. I look forward to hearing from you.
