About me

Learn to love your demons!

I offer an alternative to CBT that focuses not on controlling our thoughts but accepting them and learning to respond in a more positive and flexible way.  I combine a deep therapeutic listening with a range of exercises and techniques to help you build a bespoke tool kit that you can take into the world and start using straight away.

I offer both counselling on an ongoing basis and also a  ‘super charged’ 4 session package, that uses the methods described above to help you respond more effectively to whatever’s happening in your life.

Sessions cost £40 per hour or £150 for the 4 session package.  Great concessionary rates are available too – I believe counselling should be accessible to all.  Fortnightly sessions are also an option for those who can’t commit to a weekly slot.

I trained as an Integrative therapist at the Iron Mill institute in Exeter, which combines therapeutic models such as Person-centred, Gestalt and Existential frameworks to enable the counsellor to work creatively and flexibly in sessions.  I have since developed an interest in therapies such as Focusing, Mindfulness and Acceptance Commitment Therapy and am undertaking further training in these modalities.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have always been passionate about empowering people to explore their potential, and worked for years in the education system.  I've been a qualified counsellor for four years and have worked with people from all walks of life.  As a member of the BACP I believe in and adhere to their code of ethics and standards.
